“BABABOOOOOOOOM”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

a 2 pound lobster and a coke for 30 dls!
I have to be honest I was not very excited into taking a long walk to get to Chelsea Market...once we got there we start to saw in the halls a couple of guys with HUGE lobsters and we saw that people was getting out from the place with them. We were thinking about the price and we were expecting something around $45 more or less ....but surprise it was only 25 dls plus your drink!
The have a very fast service, they give you some lime and butter )that you can use it to dip in your lobster. the lobster is awesome, it is so juicy and tender, the best part is in the tail ...dont expect a fancy place, I actualy ate at the floor because everything was full but I didn't care...it was so good...definitly a good place to go...
you can go ther after taking a quick tour at south manhathan and then you can go to high line park for a short walk :)

“The Place for Lobster”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Excuse the play on words but seemed appropriate. This is a no frills - no service - seafood market that you can order whole lobsters. A two pound lobster is $25 and a four pounder is $43.
I would still go for the two pound lobster as it is supposed to be sweeter and flavorful.

There is no place to sit and eat the lobster in the store. However, there is a small stand near the lobster area. There is only seating for the sushi area. You will have to find a table in the Chelsea Market common area.

It is a fun experience.

“As the name - Lobster Place”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Good for causal seafood dining. You choose your lobster size, they prepared it for you and you enjoy. Fresh lobster needs nothing more. If your prefer more variety, there are oysters and sushi available as well as hot soup. Good to spend a meal there after your shopping or sightseeing around the Chelsea Market.

“A must-eat in Chelsea Market”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great lobsters at a reasonable price! Seats are pretty hard to find, but if you wait a few minutes empty seats will turn up either in the place itself or somewhere nearby... If you are in Chelsea Market I recommend eating here!
