The house was built in 1838 and its original look has been preserved, which provides the restaurant with its distinctive character.As the name indicates, lobster dishes are the restaurant’s hallmark (trademark).

Lovely horse, whale and lobster of course. The depths of yumminess were delightful and the snooty looking maitre'd added some class to the quiet ambience. Expensive but worth it.

When all the trendy hot spots were filled, our hotel concierge suggested we try The Lobster House for a delicious meal. We had a delicious meal, with top flight service. The decor and atmosphere here is more 'classic' in style. So, when you want a quiet and intimate meal this should be your first choice!

We were referred here by someone in the sweater store. We were looking for some lobster soup. We found a place that was fairly priced, had tablecloths, great wine, excellent lobster soup, and relaxed, friendly service. The wine pairing suggested was excellent.

It is in an old house, with many rooms, set for quiet, peaceful dining at your own pace. It is filled with artwork.
