It would probably be a rare day that the parking lot at LOBSTA LAND Restaurant in West Gloucester is not filled during usual peak dining hours. And for good reason, the food is delicious and the portions generous.
As one might expect from the restaurant’s name, seafood entrees abound on the lunch and dinner menus. There are also many other meat selections and a nice range of appetizers to choose from. A diner going home hungry or dissatisfied would have to be really “out of sorts”.
There are two main dining areas in the restaurant and each has a view. Where you will be seated is most likely dependent on the time of day and the size of the crowds. The front dining room abuts the parking lot. Nothing wrong there – great for people watching. Those in the rear pine paneled dining room look out through tall glass windows onto a picturesque salt marsh. Depending on the tide cycle, one might see the water level at different heights. With each tidal fluctuation, the marsh scenery and colors will change somewhat to the delight of the viewer.
During my five day stay in the area, I had breakfast three times and dinner twice at Lobsta Land and was never dissatisfied in the slightest. The “2 by 2 by 2” breakfast special is really equivalent to two meals for $5.95 (choice of eggs, applejack bacon, ham or sausage, and honest to goodness fluffy pancakes with syrup). The portions are very generous. If you’re the type that enjoys and relies on a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast to carry you through the day, the breakfast offerings at Lobsta Land are delicious! The same accolades will no doubt be heard at lunch and dinner. Retain a good chef and “they will come”.
Lobsta Land is a short distance off Route 128 East/Exit 14. One can navigate to the restaurant coming in the opposite direction by using Causeway Street behind the car dealership. It’s worth making the exit stop for the quality of the dining experience and the food. Plan accordingly. There’s a table with a view waiting for you, and you won’t be disappointed.
