They could call it "Sea Paradise" , it would be appropriated. I've been here the first time visiting Chelsea Market, we've tried their sushi's and let's say that was delicious. The second time we've tried the lobster roll (sandwich) and THAT was an experience! Simply perfect. This is a place you can't miss. Period.

We went into the Lobster Place just to have a look around at the offerings - cooked lobster, of course, and lots of fresh fish at reasonable prices by NY standards. We also bought some sashimi sets to take away for our supper after sampling lobster sushi rolls which had generous portions of lobster in them for just under $12.

My wife, my daughter and her fiance enjoyed this place immensely. We had oysters and shrimp rolls, sharing around the table. All were frsh, tasty and high quality/high price. We'd have loved to have the whole lobster, but at a few dozen dollars a piece, only the Asian tourists were enjoying them, Oh well, it's their time I guess.

Love the Lobster Place in Chelsea market. Go there early to snag a standing room table. Frozen lobsters, steamed and served with butter and lemon. Be prepared to get dirty....

Came upon this while browsing thru the Chelsea Market. Massive Fish Market, with really fresh delicious whole steamed Lobster. You can choose from 1.5, 2 or 3lb Lobsters. They serve you the whole Lobster on a paper plate, complete with melted butter, lemon wedges, wet wipes and bibs!!

The lobster was good. We had the sandwich and it was really good, but I think if you want to enjoy more of it, order it in piece. Just the lobster, no sandwich

This place is very original . Fast food lobster.... We found it by chance while walking in the Chlsea market. The fish exposition and the lobster satnd looked so clean and inviting that we decided to take the chance. It was actually fun standing next to tourists like us and chewing on steamed lobster claws and drinking pinot griggio. I... More

Lovely place recommended to us in Chelsea Markets. I note the mixed reviews especially about the "fresh" produce. We had lobster and mixed rolls with drinks and found it beautiful and a real experience. Would highly recommend.
