My husband alays has second thoughts about places like this, but The Lobster Shack was very good for the money. The lobster was cooked perfectly and there was not alot of filler. It was a wonderful find.

Can't wait every year for this place to open and now they have a beautiful awning so you can have some shade while you dine. One of THE best lobster rolls around! Quick and friendly service and you can bring your own beer and wine.

Visited with my son and his puppy. We had two lobster rolls and Clam Chowder Soup. The roll was soft and delicious. The lobster was soft and succulent. Just enough butter sauce. The clam chowder soup was thick and creamy. This is a cafe style...More
