About
Nick was a local fisherman who docked his boat right here on Flatbush Avenue in 1955. Within a few years, people would stop to buy fresh lobsters and seafood right from the boat. Through the years the idea has grown into a successful restaurant --still in the family. With pride in the past we focus on the future. Our goal is to provide our guests with excellent service in a fun, casual atmosphere to enjoy the freshest lobsters, seafood and ingredients around. We work with many local suppliers and aim to continuously improve Nick's Lobster House for another 60 Years.
