Just had yet another great meal in this restaurant. The Salmon was terrific and my wife really enjoyed the Lobster linguine. The staff was very attentive and highly knowledgeable about their product. Good wine list with some notable reds from the Pacific Northwest. Sit by the windows if possible to get a great view. However this time of year it... More

The setting is lovely and the food was good, especially the lobster bisque. The shrimp were somewhat bland. There's nothing I thought was outstanding at this restaurant (except the view). Everything was fine, but it's not fine dining.It's a bit too casual for that. The prices were reasonable for lunch and the quality of the food we got was high.... More

My husband and his family had brunch here. The food was great and the fact that I could have lobster and bacon at the same time was pretty awesome too!

After relocating to Lakewood Wa my daughter wanted to take me out to dinner. In Indiana there are not many good fresh Seafood place. I wanted to go a Seafood place with a waterfront view.

Three of us met for dinner at the Lobster Shop South on a Tuesday night. We were seated right away, but a line soon formed. Our server was well versed on the menu and made excellent recommendations. We were not rushed, but our food arrived at a timely manner and we were able to enjoy each course. The Lobster Shop... More

We came here for a dinner with a party of 9 and they were able to seat us right away. The dining room provides an incredible view of Puget Sound. The food was good- the lobster bisque was particularly nice. The oyster fish fry was also good, the oysters were cooked just right. The Honey Drop and Pumpkin Spice Manhattan... More

Had an excellent dinner here this past week. The service, food and location cant be beat. Our waitress was very helpful, they had run out of the vodka for our drink but she suggested a very good alternative.
