Just ate there tonight, my first lobster experence Good food and great service! Loved the fact that they were open late...it is a bit warm in the building though but overall I had a great time there.

“Ok, but a little pricey.”
Reviewed August 4, 2009

My husband and I stopped here for dinner and each had the fried shrimp. We wanted the lobster bisque, but after ordering and waiting 15 minutes, we were told they were out. The shrimp were very tiny.I wouldn't go here again since there are so many other places in the area that are amazing. But, it's not bad.

“Great Lobster at the right price”
Reviewed July 11, 2006

This restaurant is actually located on the Bar Harbor road in Trenton. As a local, I had forgotten about this place until I noticed someone else posted a review. I would agree with the previous post you'll get great food here at a reasonable price. This restaurant is a great choice for Lobster, Lobster Rolls and seafood (but they have choices on the menu for your non-seafood family members as well). Its a no frills restaurant, your lobster is served on a sturdy cardboard plate and the drawn butter comes in a plastic cup, but Gateway serves some of the best lobster in the area. The prices are reasonable and they are one of the few places that actually stay open later.
