The restaurant is very mediocre both in food taste and quality. The décor is also less than mediocre.

My wife and I don't go out that much to eat but when we do it is usually to the Lobster Pier. The all you can eat salad bar comes with the meal, the calamari appetizer could feed a family and the sea food entrees are not only delicious but you will need a doggy bag for the left overs.... More

If you're looking for a relaxing evening out, do yourself a favor and skip this restaurant. From the moment we sat down, we were rushed. While wait staff appear to be trained, they are also harried. Clearly someone has told them not to stand still. Water is replenished after every sip. My partner was asked by 3 different people if... More

Nothing has been updated here in years. The menu has had the same choices for years. There are two salad bars which are included with your meal but the meal is delivered too quickly. Service is attentive.

We went for dinner and its the same old food. They need to get a new chef. Lobster was over cooked again. The salad bar was okay but nothing new on it. Same food as the last time we were there six months ago.

I've been going to the Lobster Pier for over 25 years. It was a favorite for my wife's folks who introduced it to us. I almost always get the muscles marinara appetizer for a meal which at $8.95 will be the best meal you're ever gonna get. Sometimes I'll try a regular entree and I've never been disappointed. Portions are... More

My sister selected this site based upon previous meals there. The menu had many selections, focused on seafood. A salad and cold seafood buffet bar is included with each dinner. We each had a different seafood dish and enjoyed them. If you wish to have dessert, be aware that the portion is generous.

Over the years we have been to lobster pier several times and were happy with food, service,and staff so you will understand how disappointed we were when the quality of food and service seems to have slipped. We still enjoyed the two salad bars, especially the peel your own shrimp and herring in cream sauce. Our friends liked the crab... More
