Yes, Lobster!

Found this place online, I wanted some lobster. Got there early to beat the dinner crowd. Ordered the lobster/seafood combo platter. That was a lot of food, lobster, shrimp, scallops, corn on the cob, cole slaw and stuffing. Speaking of stuffing, no room for dessert. The place was busy by the... read more

Best Lobster in town. First choice top notch for lunch or dinner, any meal on the menu. Great after a day at the beach. Perfect for out door romantic dining. Also great for families as well.

During our 3 day stay in Yarmouth we ent to this restaurent every eavening. The twin lobster dish was just too good to miss. Godd size lobster and steaming hot. Service nice and friendly. Also to recommend is the bar. Bill made us fine cocktails with exception of the Irish coffee. Here he has to practise a bit.

Everyone needs to stop here at least once, but do not expect a fine dining experience. The menu and pricing looks good until you receive your very small lobster. And after 60 years of enjoying the fruit of the sea in New England, you know what small is (not a chicken but a chick.) To my taste, everything else was... More

Decent lobster, fair price, nice view and ambiance. Service was a little on the slow side, but nor horrible. The Lobsters were small, maybe a lb or a lb and a quarter. A good place to take children to give them the feeling of being on a real boat, albeit a docked one!

Overlooking the water at sunset. Great waitstaff. Prices reasonable. My friend had lobster pie and I had fried lobster. Both were delicious! The shark bite alcoholic drink of the day was so very tasty!! We've been here in years past and will return.

I had a lobster dinner here with a group of 42 people. They were ready for us. The servers were very welcoming and service was VERYfast, almost two fast. They were cleaning tables while we were still eating. In their defense the tables were crowded with plates. The lobsters were ok, the servers were helpful in showing many how to... More

Ate dinner here with some friends on a Wednesday evening in September. There were 6 of us so I called to make reservations, but they told me they don't take any. I said we were coming at 8pm and said we should be fine. We arrived earlier, around 715pm, and were seated right away. The restaurant wasn't packed but service... More

One out of four meals was prepared to order. Pasta dish was cold on one half and warm in the other. Since when is lobster fishy tasting and smelling? We will not be back.

We recently ate at the Lobster Boat. WE have eaten here before. I've been eating New England seafood for over 60 years. The ambiance is kind of tacky, there is a water view if desired. They don't serve any bread, or cheese + crackers, or whatever. I had the lazy man's lobster, my companion had a seafood salad. The "baked"... More
