I finally got a chance to visit the restaurant as opposed to ordering on Uber Eats. Everything was lovely. It’s a small place but they totally make it work. Everything was calm; food was DELISH; all the workers were polite. It’s a cute little spot for 2 or a small group. The only item I was not fond of was the Lobster Bloody Mary. I’ve never had a Bloody Mary before.

We stopped here on a Saturday night and ordered to go while on our way back to Staten Island from spending time bowling in the the city. My husband and son went in and ordered to go and they were so nice and gave my son a drink while they waited. We have been to burger and lobster and Luke’s lobster but this place really stood out. The lobster roll was delicious and the fries that came with it stood fresh 25min later. It was all worth every penny

This places serves an excellent lobster roll (almost as good as some of the lobster pounds in Maine) and lobster mac'n cheese. I was also impressed with the fact it serves Allagash White beer on tap, which is one of my favorites. I agree with the poster that said the prices are high, even for lobster. My visit was pre-pandemic (unfortunately, I forgot to do a write-up at the time).

What a lovely place! We found it to have a very welcoming vibe, the wait staff took time to talk us through the menu and after we’d said we’d never had lobster before, made suggestions on choosing the more classic lobster roll rather than getting a full lobster. The decor’s really cool and there’s a great range of craft beers. It’s away from super touristy places and was full of New Yorkers young and old.

Since NYC is on PAUSE due to the coronavirus global pandemic, we are in town for my birthday instead of traveling. We've been preparing our own meals for weeks but decided to order out as a treat. We ordered our usual lobster rolls with Brussels sprouts and everything turned out great. The fries were still hot and crunchy which I suspect means there is no traffic since so many people are at home. It's definitely not the same as visiting in person but we did enjoy it.

We feel honored to have been a part of your birthday celebrating, even if it was a little different this year! We hope we can all celebrate in person again soon!

We regularly take our grandson here for lobster when we are in town.$1 oysters in Happy Hour and fresh hard shell lobsters. Usually the service is friendly and efficient. This evening only 3 tables of customers, including us. My husband had to get up 4 times to ask for things to eat. I had to get up to ask for water. Pathetic. Great oysters and lobsters. I had a lobster roll which was supposed to be warm with buttered lobster. Not warm and not freshly cooked lobster. French fries with it barely warm. Looks like we'll have to find a new place to carry on our tradition!

The Pound is a quaint, interesting spot, but the food was second rate. The quintessential Lobster Roll was 95% bread and breading and an almost invisible portion of actual lobster. And if you cannot get a good Lobster Roll at a Lobster Pound, why bother. Plus, with tax, that loaf of bread with a few bits of meat cost almost $40. If you do visit the Pound, look for more reasonable dishes to order.

As someone who eats a lot of lobster I'm here to say this is the best lobster roll ever! Four of us went and each tried a different one. All thought theirs were the best. Can't wait to go back.

Fantastic lunch al fresco following a long (boozy…) visit to Widow Jane distillery. It was a very hot and humid summer day which frankly made the experience even better, especially as I worked my way through a whole Poundster! Special mention for the awesome staff who spotted that I had drunkenly forgotten my $300 Widow Jane bourbon purchase under the table and held onto it until I made my way back…

I’m sorry Paul that we haven’t ordered the whole lobster that you have been pushing to sell so hard. On our first night in New York we were really looking forward to enjoy your famous lobster roll. Unfortunately that was clearly way below your standard. But pushing the check in our face just because we are not in for a desert, while we are still halfway our drinks, and then return unasked with your payment device when we are not finished is just absolutely rude. You clearly wasn’t happy to serve us tonight. Being treated like that is not what we expected from a so well praised place.

In New York from Italy for a week holiday with the family, we left Manhattan to explore Brooklyn and we found this nice warm restaurant. Good kinds menu for our little one, great choice of delicious fish for the others. The Clam Chowder, the Lobster roll and the fish and chips were very good, adequate portions. The crew was very kind and the owner sat down at our table for a chat. We appreciated the food and the atmosphere. Honest price being in NY. Recomended

We were on a one day excursion in New York and walking back to embark on the Queen Mary 2 when we popped in. Great lobster rolls, delicious cocktails but above all the wharf-like ambience and the friendliness of the owner and wait staff. Definitely recommend it if you love lobster and a good vibe.

Being a lovely Autumn day we sat outside to enjoy a traditional Maine lobster roll.What impressed was the ability to have a range of sides so you could have either chips or coleslaw or green salad etc.Portion size is not huge

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to dine during happy hour where I had the $1 oysters, which were so delicious. The lobster Mac and cheese is a must have when dining there as it is just simply flavour heaven! Our hostess was so professional and very prompt with our orders and never hesitated to help with our concerns.
