We stopped for lunch after a wine tasting at Zorvino Winery in nearby Sandown. Virtually all of the reviews we had read were consistently excellent and this proved to be true. As others have said, this is a hidden gem. It is a very casual location to enjoy excellent food and service. Our server was helpful, efficient and fun. Our food selections covered all areas of the menu and all were excellent. Sean, the owner stopped by the table and, when he learned that we had not tried the Clam Chowder, brought us all samples (it was excellent). Finally, the beer and wine selection made it a 'complete' experience.

Just had the most excellent dinner at the Lobster Q! Sean Hopkins was very gracious, paired our meals with some very awesome beers. Oysters were sweet and briney! Angry Streamers were outstanding! Crab cakes were scrumptious! Lobster roll was better than the Beach Plum's. Scallops, baked, delicate and sweet! No wonder the Phantom Gourmet gave them the GOLD Plate!! Kudos, Sean, Kudos!!!

Have been to the Lobster Q a couple of times and enjoyed both visits. First visit had the fried clam plate which was very good. Second visit had the 3 meat combo ( I had ribs, pulled pork and smoked kielbassa) which was also good. It was explained however that you could use any of the seafood offerings in the meat combo platters coming up with a BBQ/seafood surf and turf. Both visits my companion had what is called the Kings Haddock. This is usually a special but if you ask they will make it for you. It is baked haddock topped with several other types of seafood ( I think scallops, shrimp and lobster but I could be wrong) with some sort of sauce. This is her go to. She can't seem to order anything else. The owner is quite friendly and is likely to stop by your table several times. Sometimes with a drink for you to sample. Some may feel this is intrusive but at least he seems to care whether you are enjoying yourself or not. Will be going back more often in the future.

Sean was working the bar and thought it was appropriate to make nasty comments. He's lucky he didn't catch a fist.

We have eaten here 5 times in the last 2 years, the food is very good! I am a BBQ fan and LOVE the ribs! The other 3 are seafood fans and love most other items!! The cornbread is a MUST HAVE, and sometimes we order it 2 times as the side to have extra!!

One trip my son wanted Lobster tail and when it was no longer on the menu, they made him a lobster roll without mayo, so he could get his fix! Their kids menu chicken fingers are home made and a big hit! There sauces are all made on site too, they don't give you very much, but always bring more when asked!
