This place at the Chelsea Market is a must-do here but I think once was enough. Very good value and nice experience but I would enjoy it more with proper tables, plates and silverware.

The lobster roll was delicious- good as any you'd get in Maine. Very crowded and no place to sit which was a bummer but it is in Chelsea Market which is very crowded. We had to eat standing up but it didn't detract from the tastiness!

Chelsea Market had great ambiance. If you are looking to eat lobster here is the best place. It is very good value for money and great lobster. They do the best lobster rolls in town. The only downside is that there is nowhere for you to sit so you have to get it take away or there are some counters... More

It was during the Christmas season and we decided to go for a walk (and shopping) at the Chelsea Market. We saw people eating lobsters and they looked delicious. It was strange eating them standing up, but it was a very nice and tasty experience. I really recommend it!!

You are actually in a seafood market that has a very small cafe where you can order the lobster roll sandwich soups and other items. We got a to go box. The lobster roll was good the clam chowder very good. If you are looking for a sit down restaurant this is not it! There are only small stainless steel... More

A few years back, during my solo sojourn to NYC, I saved my sightseeing appetite for this jewel inside the Chelsea market. First of all, all of the staff were incredibly friendly. I wandered to the back of the establishment amongst the copious amounts of various seafood at each counter. And there I spied the largest pile of lobsters I'd... More

While killing some time waiting for the Whitney to open, we stopped in here and scoped this place out right as they opened. When we came back at lunch time the place was packed. We started out with a couple of lobster rolls and the. We moved over to the oyster counter and tried three or four varieties. The oysters... More

Pick your lobster by size, watch them steam it, pick a side or two, and then try and find a seat. We were 6 people so it was impossible to sit together, but we were lucky to find seats close enough together. However, the lobster was perfect. Enjoyed the experience!

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
