We went at the Lobster Bar because other local restaurant were full until 22:30, wow.... But it ended up being a great alternative, should have come here before trying others with no success. The lobster was very fresh, the place is authentic and they put all their value in food and service; at the right price considering this is in the greatest location: right on te pier, water front. Lots of locals go there, must be a good place ;) !

Wonderful location. Wonderful Food. Wonderful Staff. We sat outside on the deck. Gretchen and a new staff member helped us. They were very attentive and non-invasive. Lobster everything was good as expected. With a nice view of the Harbor, you are on the water! And a nice view of the sun/sunset, it is the perfect place for a couple, or really anyone looking to eat and chill.

This is a funky cool little place where you walk into an active fish and lobster market and as you continue further along, you find yourself at the back of the building which is set on the end of a pier with a panoramic view of the harbor. The menu is simple with fresh seafood. They have both traditional cold lobster rolls as well as hot lobster rolls, and they are served on really great rolls. The chowder and bisque were quite good. Very rustic, but that made for a unique experience with portable heaters on the table on a chilly April afternoon, and lap blankets if you wanted one, while we watched a fleet of small sailboats tacking around the harbor.Friendly staff. Loved it! Reminiscent of the No Name Restaurant in Boston.

What a deal here! At least for whole lobsters and in a tourist trap. They were fresh too! Although I had the lobster roll, it was not my favorite. Legal Seafood is still #1 on my list for these! It's not bad for what you get. If you like seafood and a bar for alcohol, go to Benjamin's!

This is a great place to grab a drink and the lobster roll is a must try. It's s fresh you can look in the kitchen and see them cleaning the lobster than plating it on the roll. It's in a good location right on the water. Little bit of outside seating but not too much. Doors do open wide in the summer so you feel like you are outside anyway even when at the bar. Wish they sold Lobster Bar sweatshirts and not only The Landing ones. Friendly staff.
