We had heard good things so took a trip out there to check it out. We were VERY disappointed! The waiter was so soft spoken we could hardly understand him. We could overlooked that but the food was just not very good! Some was cold, some burnt, some just not good tasting. One person ordered a steak and he was pretty happy but those of us with seafood and/or pasta were really not satisfied. We really wanted to enjoy this place but we won't go back.

You can feel right at home with Seafood at the Lobster House... miles from the ocean. We have eaten there a number of times over the years and the quality and service remains very fine. The place is always crowded, so we like to come in fairly late in the evening. The service has always been prompt and spot on. I think that shows good training by management. I think that it might not be as great as a place along the coast, but if you are looking for good food in this area, you won't miss out.

We live in town and have tried the Lobster House several times over the years and have learned to not expect too much from their seafood, especially shrimp. As they apparently use frozen shrimp, the hard texture and lack of taste unless in a sauce is disappointing. While the place is packed often, even our most recent experience last night confirmed our earlier opinion: stick with chicken or pasta or beef and you're probably okay. Our party of four had three Shrimp combos or platters and the grilled shrimp skewers were horribly hard, dry, and tasteless. The scampi was the best item with a good mix of white wine and light garlic. Broiled Haddock was plain and blandly done without any liquid or seasoning it seemed. Interestingly, the fried shrimp were mixed, some were above average and some bordered on horrible, mixed on the same plate. My wife had three out of five bad and I had two of five bad, but we were frustrated in not understanding why they can't be consistently better. Atmosphere and other accompaniments are all good...just watch the seafood.

Try using fresh ingredients...frozen dinners are for microwaves, not restaurants.
