Very fresh fish, quick and friendly service. They have some great snacks. It is very convenient though the environment for eating outside is a bit lacking.

Food is amazing and very reasonably priced. I usually get the haddock sandwich and my kids are hooked on the shrimp and scallops. The Cape is my favorite place and American Lobster Mart is one of my favorite places on the Cape. We typically stop here both on the way to and on the way home. We have eaten here... More

We almost literally stumbled onto this magnificent but a Americana because it was behind our motel. We asked the motel manager where we had to go to get a great lobster without going broke in the process, and he replied: "Out the back door and twenty feet to your right. We picked out the four live lobsters we wanted ($10... More

The fish was very fresh, very generous and came with both fries and hand breaded onion rings, Even the price was reasonable for Haddock instead of Cod. Great Job!

Seafood, eaten in a lighthouse! Good lobster rolls, yummy fries, and located right on the Bourne Bridge rotary.

The food is so fresh and the staff is amazing. They are all so knowledgeable and friendly. You will not be disappointed. Any traffic you would encounter on the bridge is worth it.

Great local family run place to get the freshest lobster and swordfish, no place to sit really, take away or buy fresh and cook yourself is the best bet. Try the lobster roll, best for the buck

Today I returned spoiled shrimp to Larry, the owner. This is the second time we have bought shrimp that was bad. Larry would not taste the shrimp. He said he was not at the shop late yesterday afternoon and his employees should not have sold the shrimp. Does this mean that we can only trust the shrimp if Larry is... More

I live in Vermont. I don't know anything about seafood. I have eaten it and most times..."meh!" I like to roam around. When I am hungry I look for a building or a sign that has "character". American Lobster Mart is one of those places. I'm not even sure it has a sign! I only learned the name later, by... More
