This is an essential part of a visit to Crail. Succulent, fresh lobster - eaten on the pier; given plates and cutlery, lemon juice etc. Great location at historic harbour.

A great place to get freshly caught Lobster and Crab. It is a take-away place located right on picturesque Crail Harbor. Picnic tables overlooking the harbor create a super setting. We had lobster rolls that were excellent. I wish I had been hungry enough to...More

Shared a lobster at the hut with my wife and mother. The weather was great which made the experience all the more enjoyable. You won't get lobster any fresher than this. Great surroundings for al fresco dining. Enjoy!

We decided to try the Lobster as a unique experience. It doesn't get any fresher than just pulled in from the sea in the morning. We ordered our lobster, and it was steamed and brought to us split in two, complete with plates, napkins and...More

Always well worth a visit for a fresh lobster or crab roll. They normally only make a limited stock of rolls to keep them fresh so get there early to avoid disappointment. Closed on Monday's.
