Food was excellent. The restaurant was very busy , but it had no effect on quality of the food. Seafood risotto was amazing.

High prices, average food, large menu selection. Annoying flies everywhere inside dining room, very hot and noisy, a/c not turned on. Limited overcrowded parking, must parallel park along street. Our server was very pleasant and accommodating. Paid $55 for fisherman's platter. They charge another $4...extra for onion rings. The plate was a lot of French fries with clam bellies the size of peas. The other seafood was just OK. Mussels were tiny! Seriously don't get the draw of popularity for this place. Expected better for what they charge. Perhaps it's the active bar scene and marsh view that attracts. There are much better and less expensive seafood restaurants in Gloucester proper. We live local and won't be back!More

After spending a day in Salem on a family trip we wanted to head out of town and find a seafood restaurant. A quick google search brought us to this amazing spot! We got there and it was packed, but we sat out on the...beautiful deck and had a drink while we waited. It didn’t take long to get seated and Jamey our server came over and took our drink and appetizer order. We had the sampler and it was delicious!! We all ordered and everyone was extremely happy with each of their meals. We had two crab cake sandwiches, steamed lobster and steak, the lobster, scallop, shrimp Mac and cheese (my favorite) and the stuffed lobster. Everything was cooked to perfection! Our server Jamey even surprised the little one with some cookies for dessert. We will definitely be back when we return to the area.More

Vacationing in the northeast and we were looking forward to our first lobster dinner. Lobsta Land did not disappoint. The lobster chowder was incredible. I just can’t say enough about how rich and delicious it was. My husband had lobster stuffed with scallops and shrimp....It was also delicious. If you are looking for a great lobster meal while in the area, you must go here!More

We were visiting family and wanted to try a true Lobster Roll. My brother in law suggested this location. Boy was he right on mark ! Not only we’re we able to get outside seating but they also had a wonderful guitar player. The Lobster...Roll was superb and the fries were a close second. We can’t wait to return !More

Husband and I born and raised in Gloucester. We go to Lobsta Land as often as possible during their open season. We also do take out frequently when available. They sometimes have to close down takeout dinners as they can be extremely busy. Our favorite...seats are high tops in the bar. There’s a few options, regular restaurant, bar seats or tables and as of this season they added on a very large outdoor seating and bar area. We actually had dinner w friends there last night and while waiting for our table, we sat outside on the anorondack seats over looking a beautiful marsh view. On to the food and service. Given how busy it is there, the servers/bartenders are fantastic!! Drinks are always really good!! The food/chefs are always point on!!! The menu is my absolute favorite in my entire town. Very extensive. The quality and taste of everything, is excellent!! I’m a very particular customer too. It’s def one of our top 2 places in town. Actually top 2 period!! We only wish they’d open all year round! Although gives us something to always look forward too.More
