I always thought this location was just a seafood market. I was pleasantly surprised last week to discover all their fair was available for in house dining.

The food was good - had Lobster Bucket and Lobster Roll. Both yummy. Wait staff was great. The place was a bit of shanty style but restroom was clean. Would go back! They have lobster ponds/fish market for purchases. Cold slaw excellent.

My husband and I just ate at the Lobster Haven. It’s a beach shanty without the beach. Reese was our waitress. She was pleasant and efficient. We ordered calamari to start. The batter was light and crispy. Delicious! I like my sauce thicker and spicier....More

Had lunch and dinner here. Don't let the location or decor fool you. The Lazy Man is one whole lobster, only the meat, on a bed of crushed crackers soaked in butter. Unbelievably good. The clam chowder is tasty with nice chunks of clam but...More
