Lobster Bisque

Not the fanciest of all places but food is good and the lobster bisque is the Best! Service is good. Great place to bring kids. Not the biggest parking lot and the intersection is a bit busy. A staple restaurant when in Port Jeff!

This is a seafood shop and a restaurant where you can get the freshest fish around. Try the all you can eat specials. Excellent food and soups. Love the lobster bisque, mussels in marinara sauce, baked clams.

Ate here twice as I really like fish though they have a broad menu. Everyone loved their own choice. The fish were very fresh and well prepared. Lobster and sea scallops were excellent. Great service. Highly recommended.

I ate dinner here twice this month. The first time I had stuffed flounder, and it was delicious. My next dinner, the flounder sandwich, came on a huge hoagie, and was not as impressive. For both dinners the cooked fresh broccoli and the salad were very fresh and tasty. The bread rolls were high quality. The service is very good... More

For a recent take out order i was given less than 3 pounds of lobster and charged for five pounds. When questioned, I was told by Jose the manager that the lobster " shrank" during cooking! In edition he was rude and hung up the phone on me. I understand mistakes in orders etc but the attitude makes me wonder... More

Good afternoon. I know we had spoke on the phone after the incident and I thought that the conversation ended on a positive note and was surprised to find this review today. As a long time customer and only having a problem this one time, I would hope that you would give us another chance. Mistakes do happen and the... More

I recently had a delicious lunch at the lobster house in Port Jefferson. I've been interested in having lobster rolls at restaurants all over the island. So far I've been to five. For the money, the PJ Lobster House takes it. Delicious, well prepared, and served with a smile and plenty of ice tea. There isn't a view but the... More

We stopped in for our first visit and enjoyed the Sunday All Inclusive. The meal was perfect, served hot as well as the chosen appetizers. I have not seen appetizers in this portion size for a long, long time. At near 70 I should know. This was probably the best meal I have had since my 20's. The service, seating... More
