My quest was to find the best lobster roll in town. I visited a couple of nearby seafood places (Billys and Brannons) and they were good, but Lords' seafood in the market I found to be equally as good at half the price. Admittedly, seating...More

Unfortunately we do not open on Sunday's. Most of our vendor's are family run businesses and Sunday is the only day they have off. I hope you can make it in another day. :)
