“Highly over rated.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

I'm sorry the lobster roll sandwich was okay for $17. You can get a great meal in a much better atmosphere at the Lobster House and the prices for take out outdoor dining are reasonable. I did not however price the lobster there. Restaurant inside also did have some sort of unappealing odor.
Soup was ok- shrimp soup had absolutely no taste and lobster soup was not anything special.
Sorry, Pat.

“Best Seafood Soups You're Likely to Have”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2011

Hubby and I stopped by Pat's for the first time this year, although we vacation in Stone Harbor every year. I am now kicking myself for not going there sooner. The She-Crab Soup was so incredibly delicious, it has spoiled crab soup for us everywhere else. The Shrimp Saute was also unreal, although we did feel that it paled in comparison to the She-Crab. The lobster rolls were the best we've had outside of Maine. We cannot recommend Pat's highly enough. Amazing food and decent prices for a shore town, especially Stone Harbor.

“Pat's Lunch; come for the soup, stay for the stories”

Pat's Lunch is a Stone Harbor institution, located on the mainland side of the 96th street bridge. Try the soups or the lobster roll!

Pat is a 90-year-old WWII veteran and has been serving soup for 57 years. He lights up if you have a big order. It is well worth your time to come in and listen to his stories.
