Chelsea market, happy hour and then the High Line

stop in for a delicious lobster roll, happy hour price on a beverage, shop a bit, gelato for the kids and then a nice stroll on the HIgh Line. Such a nice calm way to top of a day of site seeing in lower Manhattan.

If you love fresh seafood, then this is a must for you! What an eye opener to see within New York.. There's a huge selection of fresh seafood and that includes stuff like oysters, lobster, sashimi and sushi that is prepared right in front of you so you can eat it there and then! Great place to visit after the... More

Expensive for what you get. The food was good, however we expected it to be much better for the price. Don't plan on eating there. You will need to find a place to eat since seating is limited. The kids did not like their lunch at all.

Lobsters cant go wrong there, they have the monday soecial with 1.5 pound lobster with a drink for 25, mind you that the amount if meat in such a lobster is barely 1/3 of its weight if not less, so get ready to order two. Lobster rolls are sort of greesy.

What a treat! If you like amazing fresh seafood in a crowded open concept seafood store/market environment with limited seating, then this place is for you. My wife and I lucked out; 1.5 lbs lobster with sides and a pint of craft beer for $25.00. Some special going in June 2015. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and experience. Would go back.

Now everybody keeps talking about their Lobster Rolls but I wasn't too impressed by that. I was impressed by their Monday night Lobster meal deal. For $25 you get a whole lobster, side and choice of beverage, including beer or wine. Now that's a great deal! Their soups were awesome too! I got the Lobster Roll Lunch box which is... More

My hubby is lobster lover, we never think twice when he saw this restaurant. Lobster is steamed to keep the taste and freshness of the meat. Definitely a must try in nyc!

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.
