This restaurant is very expensive and the food is just so so. The decor is very plain, for the prices you would think it would be a bit nicer. I would not go back or recommend this restaurant.

Was at this restaurant under the old ownership and found it very good. Arrived for lunch this last weekend and noted the changed menu and much higher prices. Bang for the buck is not even close. Service was untrained. Coffee and tea was barely warm....More

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G experience at this restaurant. I have eaten a few lobster rolls in my life, but this restaurant can crown itself with having the best. I have attached a mouthwatering picture to tempt you. Excellent service even with the steady stream of people coming in.

We ended up at The Lobster Kettle because the restaurant we had planned to have lunch at was not open - their loss, our gain. When I ordered the snow crab sandwich, which came with fries, I told the server that I couldn't face eating...More

Full lobster was too pricey at $40 so I opted for the lobster roll which was supposed to be 1/2 a lobster on a fresh roll. For my $24.50 I received 3 tablespoons of lobster meat on a boring, stale white bun with a few...More
