Stopped by for lunch after hearing good things about this restaurant, and was not disappointed! I had the fish and chips and lobster bisque and it was great. It was a little busy due to limited seatings, but I enjoyed my experience.

I had the lobster roll which didn't have much dressing. There was tones of lobster and I guess that's what you're paying for but I found it bland and gone in about 4 bites. The shop itself is amazing and so much to see they even have a sit down restaurant next door. Maybe I got a bad day but... More

As the name reveals, that's where you'll go for lobsters! Now if lobsters are not your thing, do not hesitate visiting as they have great sushi and other seafood available for either take away or sit in.

We visited here for lunch last week Tuesday and the market was very busy but there are some really great shops inside. The Lobster place is superb with a wide selection of fish to choose from. Me and my partner went for the lobster roll and fries, plus two beers which in total came to around $45 which was expensive.... More

2nd time visiting Chelsea market and this is where we ate for lunch. Tried the fish/chips, crab cake sandwich and lobster bisque between the 2 of us. All were good, everything tasted fresh. Limited seating, but if you can get a spot at the counters toward the front of the restaurant you'll get a good view of the whole seafood... More

We went to Chelsea market and ate lunch at the lobster place. Very crazy on a Saturday but it was well worth it. I had the Salmon burger, daughter had sushi. Everything was fresh. The lobsters looked enormous and after we were able to find a place to sit, i regretted not getting the lobster. Highly recommend eating here if... More

After a hard mornings shopping we rested our feet in Chelsea Market and highly recommend a quick pit stop at Lobster Place. Quite tricky to get a seat at peak times but if you manage to I would really recommend the lobster roll and clam chowder. Super food and good value.
