We were in Rockland on a Sunday looking for a place to have lunch and decided to give Lobsterman's a try (we were enticed in by the outdoor tent sign proclaiming the freshest lobster in town). The restaurant interior can be best described as minimalist - simple wooden tables and chairs, wooden flooring and a few pieces of art on the walls - certainly not the fanciest spot in town. However, the food lived up to the billing and that is what matters most. The lobster chowder was superb with an abundant number of large chunks of lobster meat (including three small claws) in a rich, silky smooth broth. The lobster roll was also piled high with large pieces of meat with just a little mayo stirred in and served on a nicely toasted roll. It was the best lobster roll I had on our trip. I also loved the draft beer options - eight local craft brewery selections including a delicious blueberry ale. Lobsterman's is a great spot for lunch.

We stopped in for drinks and an appetizer during happy hour, and decided to try the lobster and artichoke dip. It was fantastic, I wish they'd serve it in a big bucket so I could eat it for dinner! The waitress was very nice and friendly. My daughter really enjoyed the Old Soaker blueberry soda.

It's a very nice place place to have a fresh and real lobster. Also trying the blue berry pie is great experience.

While walking the streets of Rockland we came upon a relatively new spot, the Lobsterman Restaurant, which was offering fresh oysters on the half shell @1.25 per and beer for happy hour. The waitress was charming. The oysters, local, fresh and salty. Perfect!

We stopped by there for happy hour which they advertise as half-price menu items. But what they don't tell you is that the half-price items are a smaller size and do NOT include a side like the full-price menu items. The only half-price was on the beer. So that was misleading. The food was just okay - nothing to get too excited about.
