Fantastic Salad Bar

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... read more

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

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.

I've eaten here a few times-located in Chester, NY & besides the large salad and fish bar there are a variety of good fish dinners available. It's only open for supper except for weekends. A fishy treat anytime!

Just love this place. The early-bird specials are always terrific (before 5 p.m. on Sundays; I'm not sure what hour they go up to on the other days). Both spouse and I had them. Mine was the Chicken Francais - done perfectly with a delicious yellow sauce - perfect for dunking the slices of fresh Italian bread that they give... More

Lobster Pier in the Town of Chester brings the great taste of seafood to Orange County. The prices are moderate and the quality of the food is great. Great place for family dining or that special night out. There is adequate parking and the restaurant itself is easily accessible from the highway Route 17 (Future Interstate 86) The are two...

Salad bar is the best in the area. From traditional green salads to muscle,shrimp and herring in cream sauce, the salad bar has it all. Definitely takes two plates to fully appreciate and take advantage of the selection. Early bird dinners for two are a great value with numerous entrees to select from. At times the service appeared to be... More
