Love the lobster rolls. Yum Easy to get to and very relaxing. Fresh food. The prices where reasonable for lobster. Fast service too and friendly. Parking was no problem at all. Will be going again.

I don't know why people ordered Clams when the name of the Restraunt is THE Lobester Stop, which are caught daily by the owner and sorted by size in tanks . Since I visit at least once a year this review is overdue, but not over stated. My wife likes their Very Fresh Lobster Rolls, better than several others that... More

If you are looking for Clam Bellies, Do NOT order from this place! The Clam Bellies are the tiniest I have ever seen. So small, in fact, that I had to get a second and third opinion if they were actually bellies at all! Paid good money for lousy dinner.

Looked this place up on yelp and was not disappointed. I was in the mood for good Clams but didn't want to drive to Essex or Ipswich and we were near this place. Ordered the Fisherman's platter to split with my husband. The portions were decent for $22 but not big enough to sit so I ordered another side of... More

Excellent value for lobster rolls - onion rings some of the best I've had. Lobster rolls can either be with warmed butter or mayo/celery, etc. I always choose warmed butter. Each roll is the size of a typical hot dog bun so not the biggest lobster roll I've had but the best value. Love the lobster tanks which keep us... More

This Stop is literally on a round about. Really! You can miss it going around. I was going for the USS Salem, also a mistake. The lobster roll was $16, but so small as not to be worth it. I also had Clam Chowder, not bad. The roll had lobster, but on a hot dog roll and a small one.... More

Stopped here Fourth of July and unfortunately had the worst lobster roll ever. Filled with mayonnaise and tasteless on a small hot dog bun. Save your money and go elsewhere!!

Went there for dinner with wife and mother about a couple of week ago. Although the price was a little steep, the food was as fresh as they come and was very tasty. The only drawback is that the lobsters (on that day?) were mostly shells and not much meat inside - loose and empty. Since the lobsters are sold... More
