If you like fresh fish, you will love this place. It has something for every price range and taste and if you are a vegan you can also enjoy some great food. I had the Londoner sandwich which was okay and the Quinoa salad which was really good and my first time eating Quinoa. I had to go around three... More

We stumbled across this place and decided to have lunch here as it is so well rated. Unfortunately I have to say that the overall experience was very disappointing. The lobster was very nice but considering the price and the facilities on offer for the eat-in customer, it was hugely overpriced. It is far too busy and crowded to eat... More

We love the Lobster Place and go eat lunch there at least twice while we are in the city. Love the lobster rolls and the slider sampler.

I visited this place in October right after a nice stroll on The Highline, as it's just a few minutes away from it. The place is nice and the choice of seafood, sushi and soups, really handmade in front of your eyes is excellent. My Lobster was superb, accompanied by butter, lemon and a good pale ale. Couldn't have wished... More

Located inside the Chelsea Market at 9th Avenue, Manhatten, the Lobster Place is like a seafood market with all kinds of seafood items on sale and also served as a self service restaurant and take out. The freshly cooked whole Maine lobster is the main attraction where one can buy and have it cooked on the spot. There is always... More

This is a few words on a particular food, which is a favorite of mine- not about the entire venue. I love real clam chowder, that of my youth. I am aware of the unhealthy nature of the stuff, the bacon grease and heavy cream, the onion back and the subtle clam flavor. The best I had ever eaten was... More

Located in the nice chelsea market (a place to visit, for sure !), this seafood market offers a wide range of sea products, and especially lobster. We had 2 lobster rolls, and were a bit disappointed by the size of it, knowing it's priced at 16.95$ each. I was expecting a slightly bigger quantity for this price. The taste is... More

The Lobster place is located in the Chelsea Market Place. It sells sushi, fish by the pound , fried shrimp/ fish and chips and at the back of the market sell steamed Maine Lobsters. They are whole but scored. The claws are cut open and the tail is split and body seperated from the tail. They are sold by weight.... More

A pretty unique place. Not a full service restaurant but more a place that you can get fresh seafood as well as some things prepared for eating on site. In particular had a dozen oysters of various types. A bit on the pricey side but you really cant find this selection in most any other place. Service was friendly. Lobster... More

The Lobster Place is a unique place in that they are a fish market with all kinds of shell fish and ocean fish and a restaurant all in one. Just about any type of fish you can imagine is on display in a beautiful setting and you can stand and watch fish being prepared and placed on display. Our food... More
