Visited this place twice during a recent trip to NYC. Used the little order window on the street at the rear of the restaurant which I thought was a great idea. My son fell in love with the eel sushi rolls which were really good...value for money, I tried both the lobster roll and the crab cake sammy, both were super fresh and tasty. I’d also recommend their cocktails which are definitely not shy on alcohol. Definitely worth a visit if your in ChelseaMore

For lunch today I ate the Maine Lobster Roll at the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. I have been eating the roll for many years and before covid it cost about $18. Now as prices have increased all over it was $23. Ouch! While it...is tasty - next time I will have the Picnic Lunch which has the soup and tasty Zappo chips. Assorted seafood entrées and sushi are available. Steamed lobsters are popular among the large Asian crowd that packs this special restaurant. Seating is sometimes difficult I get. Highly recommended.More

Think on a disappointing place, you found! Ordered a crab cake, which I asked in advance about the size and to be on the plate and they offered me to add salad. Believe me, I got a very small crab cake, way smaller than the...burger size mentioned and, believe me, ONE leaf of lettuce! Seriously? All of that to $19More

This place is very big, different areas. You can eat in or take out. Some food is already prepared. The Manhattan Clam Chowder was good, as was the salmon and tuna sushi and the seaweed and edamame. As well, took out 2 salads from the...back and brought a piece of dorade to cook. Have to try the lobster next time!!More

Had the steamed lobster and were not disappointed! Super tasty and quite easy to eat (they pre cut the lobster (still comes in once piece), so you don’t need any tools or to worry about your teeth). Gloves are also provided, so you don’t need...to worry about greasy fingers. Clam chowder soup is also highly recommended. And all that coupled with the vibrant atmosphere of Chelsea Market. Def worth a visit!More

This place is insane with seafood. In the very back you can get a lobster roll. The sandwich isn't huge but just the right size. The flavor was excellent. Not too much mayo which I like. The fries were good as well. Up front there...is another restaurant and people seemed to be enjoying other good seafood.More

Excellent food, although expensive. The oysters were at an affordable price and the tastiest I ever had: ask Edgar for advice to get the best ones.

I’ve passed by this place so many times and finally stopped in with some friends. We ordered the scallops with yuzu, toro don with a side of Hokkaido uni, unagi don, spicy lobster roll, some oysters and the snow maiden sake. Wow everything here was...super fresh. We loved the scallops, toro and the unagi. The fish was really buttery and their soy sauce hit differently as well. Prices here are reasonable. Expect to spend around $20 per entree and oysters were $3. The restaurant has a sushi, seafood, lobster area with bar seating and table seating for large parties in the back. Highly recommend this place if you love seafood. They have a little bit of everything for everyone and the service is really great as well.More

I ordered the lobster roll package which included a roll, a lobster bisque, and a bag of chips for about $25, all packaged neatly in a nice carry out bag. Everything was good, although the roll was a bit small.

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
