A favorite on the harbor with lobster bisque that I have yet to find any to compare. Reservations are a must for a window seat.

The Lobster Shop is my first choice for dinning on the water front.
The Twilight Menu is a great deal with dynamite selections Eat in the bar at happy hour and you can make up a very tasty, inexpensive meal from the happy hour menu. Great Manhattan also. The view is outstanding and the deck is inviting. The staff is great and I never feel rushed or pushed to finish my meal. I would recommend The Lobster Shop and would not hesitate to take visitors there for dinner.

Great evening at the Lobster Shop! Started in the Lounge with HH Silver City Brew and a Manhattan with REAL cherry from Oregon
Dinner was meant to be Early Bird menu, but after looking at the Chefs Selections our minds were changed.
Salads were grilled pear and Caesar followed by a selection of Halibut Oscar , which included asparagus, lobster, hollandaise sauce
laid upon mashed potatoes
The other meal was Ahi Tuna presented with rice and Asian slaw
Both of these entrees were highly pleasing
Dessert was flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, and a surprise Birthday chocolate sundae ! Both decadent!
All in all a great way to celebrate my day

This is our "go-to" place for special occasions. The twilight menu (early supper) is also very reasonably priced to get an appetizer, killer entre and dessert. When the weather is nice, the outside seating is just awesome.
