Business travels sometimes makes you to stay in a hotel close to the airport and have to eat their pricy and not at all good food but this is not the case if you are in San Francisco, CA or at any of the hotels around the San Francisco Airport.

A colleague gave me this tip and it was great. The place is vey nice and open, surrounded of lobster and crabs tanks which ensures that you are getting a nice fresh meal.

They have a clams bar which is really good and then the restaurant area where you can order lobster and crab based dished.

The price is fair, e.g.: $20 for a 1 1/4 lbs lobster with chips, coleslaw salad and bread or <$2 per oyster having 3 different types to choose

I also tried the lobster chowder ($6/cup) and it is one of the best that I've had ever! creamy and tasty

Don't get stuck in the hotel, go out and try this place. You will not regret the trip

That way, there won't be so much of a crowd for happy hour! The deals are incredible as is the food! Not much atmosphere in an industrial area, but who cares with lobster tacos?

I have only gotten the lobster rolls and lobster corn chowder here, and they are delicious. The lobster rolls are a bit expensive but they do give you a lot of lobster meat. Well worth it. The outdoor tables are great for a warm day. They actually sell the lobster corn chowder in the freezer, which is a much better deal than ordering it off the menu. It tastes the same if you don't mind heating it up at home. A must go for lobster lovers.

The food wasn't really that tasty. And it was expensive! Nice outdoor seating. We enjoyed the corn lobster chowder. (No clam chowder!) And the crab nachos was above average. But the crab melt - meh!

This place is hidden on a side street off of the Old Bayshore Rd. This os off of Millbrae exit, which is the 1st exit from the SFO airport heading south. Take the Millbrae exit East.

This is a must try spot for anyone staying near the San Francisco Airport. Take a look at the size of the lobster they are serving for only $15.95. The lobster are fresh, and this place supplies much of the lobsters to the other retailers/restaurant in the bay area. You can see a live CCTV of the lobster tanks in the bldg behind the restaurant. I forgot the actual number, but it was like a 1000 lobsters a week.

You can order larger lobsters, and they have lobster up to 6 lbs in the tanks in the restaurant.
At the oyster bar you can order oysters on the half shells and other appettizers.

Besides the lobsters, the Lobster corn chowder is one of the best I've ever had. It is very rich and flavory, Cost $9 for a bowl, and is enough for two people to share. The lobster rolls are also highly recommended.

If you do get a lobster, it will be a little messy when shelling and eating the lobster.

Note: they have a limited beer menu and several "fancy" high-end root beer. People bring in their own wine or soft drinks.
I don't know what type of service some of the other reviewers are looking for. You walk up and place your order at the counter, get a number, and they bring you your order. When you leave, they clean off the table.
