Get the Lobster Roll!

Me and my buddy have been traveling all over Suffolk County, Long Island in search of the best Lobster Roll. We give The Lobster Roll Northside in Riverhead an A and would certainly go back there again. A word of caution: go early. This place is very popular and fills up fast.

My husband and I ate here with our boys in the fall of 2014 during one of their last weekends of the season and I returned today with my mom and boys (and I'm sure I will be back in the next couple of weeks with my husband too). The service is great, the food is tasty and reasonably priced... More

My husband and I took the kids here for lunch today after a day pumpkin picking at a local farm. The place was crowded but the food was served quickly. It was fresh and delicious and even our picky eaters (3 and 10 year old boys) enjoyed their meals. We look forward to going back.

We visited on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. We arrived around 6 pm and were told an hour wait for inside or we could sit immediately outside. We sat outside. It was chilly but our server was prompt and there was live music. I had the New England clam chowder and the lobster roll both were very good. The... More

Many of the offerings on the menu are fried seafood so my guest and I ordered fried entrees. The food was poorly prepared---soggy and greasy. It was served with a wilted salad and standard coleslaw. It's a shame you can't order a decent fish and chips at a casual seafood restaurant. It seemed like management was missing from the premises... More

True to its name, they make a truly good Lobster Roll, both hot and cold. A really nice place on the North Fork near the farms and the wineries. Definitely worth a stop even though it’s a little out of the way. Outside seating during the season. Only open on weekends off season. A little pricey, but worth the price... More

We have been coming here for years, whenever we are near the outlets, going out to the North Fork, or are looking for lunch on the way to the Hamptons. The food is always good. The lobster rolls are famous and rightfully so. But the other seafood is great too, We love the fried clams, the chowder and the fish... More
