My husband and I visited Lobster Pier for the first time last weekend for the early bird special... I am not a huge seafood lover but everything here was great! The hot and cold buffet were a nice addition (mussles in a garlic marinade were tasty), I read in previous reviews that there were alot of mayonnaise based dishes -... More

Attended for dinner during their Early Bird Special; 2 meals plus endless salad bar for $29 including taxes. Salad bar was extensive with over 30 items including muscles, shrimp, etc. nice selection of various fish and seafood entrées. Food was tasty and service was exceptionally provided by attentive and friendly serverS/staff. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

My husband and i took our two girls out with us for our 25th Anniversary. This was our first visit to Lobster Pier. The place was old but we didn't mind that it actually was part of the charm of the place. Service was fine but the food was horrible. The "seafood" salad bar consisted of lots of salads with... More

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.
