The lobster roll is delicious and has a great bread/filling ratio. Their chowders are a great complement to it. There isn't much seating, so be prepared to either stand or take it away. I wish I lived near Chelsea market.

I have been to Chelsea market a couple of times before and walked around The Lobster Place and wanted to try it out. This year we finally had the opportunity to go and I prepared myself for the lobster experience. When we arrived, the place was packed and there was no where really to sit down. My wife already expressed... More

The place is crowded all day long. The place has different sections for fish, sushi, seafood, etc. people purchase either to go, raw, frozen, other products such as... More

This place is a see food market (inside Chelsea Market), where you can also order some fresh meals. I had the lobster, which was fantastic, you'll have to stand and eat, as there is no sitting. Overall, it was a great experience.

We had lunch here after a nice walk across The Highline and a visit to the Chelsea Market. Nice neighbourhood, relaxed atmosphere. The Lobster Place is actually a small fish market, very clean. You can eat all sorts of seafood here but we had 2 small lobsters (they have 2 sizes). Lobsters were very fresh and tasty. The only downside... More

do not like the atmosphere, too crowd, price is not cheap, just as same as eat in restaurant. nearly no seat for eat. so if you like, you could stand to eat. this is not good for you to have a lunch if you are tired.

When you go into a fish market, it's not supposed to smell like fish! The lobster Place is bright ,clean, well organized with lots to choose from and a friendly knowledgeable staff! Great place!! Would go there tomorrow if I was closer.

Had the best sushi for quite a long time !!! Go to the sushi bar and order the chef tasting menu (ok for 2 to share), it is fantastic. Many surprises such as the giant clam, the urchins, the fresh scallops, so good. Also stop by the lobster roll booth. Fantastic, although their ordering process is a bit messy !!
