When ever we visit my in-laws the Lobster Pier is a must. Alan is very friendly and always makes sure we have a good visit. I like the steamed clams and the salad bar.

Dinner was OK but not great. Ordered a broiled Maine Whole Stuffed Lobster. First thing I noticed is that my lobster was boiled first and then broiled. Water just seeped out of its claws and the lobster itself was on the small side, I don't think it was a pound. The waitress was very slow coming to our table. Another... More

The food is delicious, it has been for many years. However, the decor hasnt changed in all those years either. This place needs a make over desperately!

Decour is old style . I like how they bring desserts on a platter and you choose what kind you want. My husband ordered... More

The food is just average, I have lived in Chester, 5 1/2 years, and went only once. Maybe a small notch above Red Lobster, and the interior is dingy, and smells musty.

Never disappointed. Very good sea food. Outrageous Seafood and Salad bars. Excellent service. Excellent value at good prices. Always take home enough for a second meal.

My wife and I had dinner last evening, our first visit. Can't say enough good things. Excellent service, not one but TWO salad bars (the 2nd specializing in seafood including steamed shrimp, mussels, seafood antipasto, etc...) and reasonable prices. Expansive menu with plenty of choices, land and sea. We were not there for the Early Bird which is an exceptional... More

Went with my wife for early bird (M-Th before 6). I had chicken Parm and my wife had Shrimp Scampi. Two dinners under $30. Dinners were good. The double salad bars were exceptionally tasty and appealing to the eye. One contained several choices of salads the other was primarily seafood (peel your own shrimp, mussels, crab salad, pickled herring) to... More

We went there the first time. Pretty unsure of how we felt about our experience. We tried it again. We were not pleased. We food was mediocre, my son actually did not like it at all. He loves seafood. It was covered in a nasty sauce. Definitely overpriced.
