This place is the lobster distributor for the Bay Area. You can get whole lobsters, tails, roles, tacos, etc. for a reasonable price. But you will be sitting on picnic tables in a quanset hit. Just saying so you are aware, I like the atmosphere....More

For myself, 2 lobster tails, one dozen oysters and half a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from Dry Creek Vineyard. Everyone else enjoyed a 4 lb lobster tail with AWSOME sliced potato chips that they deep fry on the premises. Excellent dinner with a loving family

Great lobster in an unexpected location! An easy walk from several of the airport hotels. The lobster is huge (from Canada, not New England I think) and delicious. The lines are long, however, so try to get there early, before the rush.

Within walking distance of major hotels. Great selection of oysters. Had the soup and naked lobster roll. No non-sense place with seating indoors and outdoors. They cook the lobsters right!! No need to dress up, go as you are.

Description
New England Lobster Market & Eatery is an authentic east coast seafood experience in the San Francisco area. We started in the wholesale business delivering quality seafood at a great value and took that experience to serve customers at our restaurant. Whether you're shopping at the market or grabbing a meal at the eatery, when you visit you'll discover live Maine lobsters, Dungeness crabs, mussels and more. Diners at our restaurant love the dressed lobster rolls, lobster corn chowder and crab nachos. We welcome families and can accommodate business group and parties in our space. We also serve beer, wine and champagne to complement your meal. As long-time merchants in the wholesale shellfish business, we are able to consistently delight our customers with great prices and superb products. We promise you won't find an experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area! Eatery Hours: 11am-9pm daily
