Amazing lunch with my dad! Had the lobster rolls, and boy, was it amazing! The owner gave us a sample of the clam chowder. It was so good that we had to take home a quart for the next day! The prices are well deserved...for the quality and freshness of the food! This is a must try! We definitely will be back!More

Stopped by to satisfy a craving for some seafood. Purchased a pound of fresh lobster meat and a half pound of cocktail shrimp. Kelly, who was so welcoming, included a sample of their homemade cocktail sauce and a sample of their new fish stew. Best...compliment I can give is to say...I'll be heading back real soon for more of everything!More

Casual, small, unassuming place with the best lobster roll I have ever tasted! She’s load it up with tons of lobster! I’m craving another right now!

The lobster Pound exceeds expectations. Where is search for it, but this is definitely a great little place. Bob who I believe is the owner, it’s in New Hampshire and has a real sense of seafood tradition. We had great service and a great meal....My wife ordered crabcake platter which, coming from Maryland, was absolutely up to our standards. I love lobster, but normally I’m not particularly fond of lobster salad or lobster rolls. I decided to try the Connecticut version which is warm lobster meat with butter and lemon. Served with a side a remoulade it was absolutely superb. Even the french fries were not greasy and tasty. Try the Bluepoint toasted logger. All in all it is is a great place for watch. Limited seating outside but very comfortable for a Sunday afternoon. We will definitely be back. By the way, lobster rolls apparently are discounted on Tuesdays. I had a regular size lobster roll which was more than enough. I can’t even imagine what the jumbo lobster roll would be. Five stars and if I could I’d avoid it more.More

Second visit here. I have nothing but good to say about The Lobster Pound. We had lobster rolls which were excellent as at previous visit. This time we also bought fresh clams, scallops, and a crab cake for New Years meal. Everything was extremely fresh,...and our meal with this seafood was perhaps my best ever. It was again worth the 90 mile roundtrip!More

Lobster Roll = Yummy I’ve lived in Lakewood Ranch for years and always wanted to try this locally owned spot. Wow! I stopped by last week and picked up a New England style lobster roll. Simply delicious! The toasted bun was just the right thickness...not...too much bread. BIG chunks of lobster meat. Not crazy about the hush puppies. The service was great. Quick and friendly. I’ll definitely stop by again.More

We drove 90 miles roundtrip today for our first visit, we were not disappointed! We were the first customers of the day, 11AM, and were warmly greeted by I assume the owner and another employee. We both had Connecticut style lobster rolls prepared on the...spot. The food was excellent, fresh, very tasty, and plentiful. I've had lobster at restaurants before with less meat than our rolls contained. We ate our food on the covered front porch, and greatly enjoyed our meal. They have many seafood choices to eat out front, carry out, and a regular market to take home. If you are riding the fence about visiting, get off your bike and have some great food with friendly service.More

My wife and I stopped here for lobster and tried several things. Everything was pretty good, but the CLAM CHOWDER was probably the best I've ever had including Maine and Maryland and everywhere else that claims theirs is the best and is often really good....I wish I would have tried the lobster roll, but really I think I'd just order a huge bunch of soup with bread and crackers and be totally happy.More

Arrival not what we were expecting. This is not a restaurant but an amazing deli type fish market with amazing food. We have been to restaurants that are considered best seafood places, none any better than here. All 4 of us had something different and...everyone was more than pleased with their choice. I was special since I mentioned I am on a low (no) salt diet. James suggested swordfish with lemon and pepper on a bun with no butter. Thank you James that was beyond my expectation. Don’t pass this place go in you will be happy you didMore

First of all they make you feel so welcome and I can see alot of return customers!!!! Lobster rolls delicious and their clam chowder is just clams and a succulent creamy light veloptuos (shuold I go on???) concoction. Been there already 3 times and will...be back at least once a week. Gotta try more stuff!!! Also they have a fresh seafood market so you can order and bring it home. Owner and staff super friendly and greet you warmly. Can't wait to go back. Check out their daily lunch specials.More

We stopped by on a Tuesday for their lobster roll special. It was our first time there and OMG!!!!! What GREAT food. We tried both the New England (cold lobster and mayo) and the Connecticut (warm lobster and butter). It's a good thing we ate...outside... we could moan without disturbing anyone. The hushpuppies on the side were also terrific. And they gave us samples of their lobster bisque and clam chowder... I know we'll be ordering them in future visits. And as if wonderful food wasn't enough, we met the owners Kelly and Jim who were positively the perfect hosts. Thank you two... we hope to see you often.More

Grouper tacos were so fresh, terrific! Lobster roll was very good as well. We had the mayo version. They also serve it with butter and lemon juice. Waitress was super nice and even recommended a neighboring restaurant for our kids who don’t eat seafood. They...also serve beer. Lots of fresh fish they will cook for you for a 5$ charge. Despite lots of fresh fish on display, there is no fishy smell. This is fresh seafood, excellent!More
