“Best lobster roll in rockland!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We came here for lunch on a beautiful day--the lobster roll was perfection!! Buttered hot dog bun, fresh and succulent lobster meat, perfect amount of mayo. The homemade potato salad was also delicious. The picnic tables are on the water and the view is beautiful. They also have a wonderful beer and wine selection. The employees were very friendly and welcoming. This will be the place we come every year now.

“Lobster feast”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

We cane back twice for the one pound twin lobsters special for $15.95. Sweet corn and homemade coleslaw added for $2 each. What a deal! This is a family run lobster shack right on the water. A large new wood deck and new picnic tables and umbrellas have ample room for diners. You can also order larger lobsters priced by the lb.
The owner's are friendly and add fast service with a smile. I will go back next summer for sure. Best deal in the area.

“Friendly & Good”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Just wanted some Lobster but decided to go with Mack & Lobster. Very good and lasted several meals for my wife and I. Notice the whole lobster pricing was the best around.

“"The Best You'll Ever Have." So True.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The lobster mac and cheese absolutely was one of the most fabulous things the entire family has experienced. The portions are large, the prices are a great value and the service is quick and very kind. The owner is super sweet and actively works to make her recipes better each time you eat there (we stopped twice and got the same thing as well as other food to try the selections), she actually asked which night the mac and cheese was better of if we liked one night's lobster mac more. The second night the lobster special for the soft shell lobsters was one of the best meals (and deals) we had on vacation. The service was so good that they offered to leave the lobsters in the pot to keep them warm while the rest of the family went to change at our hotel because the evening was got pretty chilly. Overall the experience was pretty fabulous.
