Casual atmosphere with seafood and burger options. Both were really good. Nice selection of drinks. The lobster roll was very tasty and the traditional burger was devoured by my son. A glass of Alphonse Mellot complimented the lobster beautifully.

The lobster was tasty however not very warm. The wine was lovely and decor really cool. Location not too far was Times Square. The service was rubbish... I do not get why they need to swipe your bank card before confirming bill... this was done...More

Crowded into a booth, with sumptuous lobster and burger platers. A limited menu which was good. Short wait-time, attentive service and a professional wait-staff. Good experience and worth the cost.

This place with the strange combination of lobster and burger really makes very good burgers. They are served on a big plate with fries and a lot of mayo if you want that. Very tatsy beef and the fill was awesome and delicious. Highly recommended

Yes, there is. if you are solo, you are likely to get a place much faster. Otherwise, there is usually a long waiting time. Have a great time !

Description
In 2011 the story began with 4 schoolmates on a rooftop in London. They came up with the idea to set up a restaurant where the focus was perfecting the craft of just one or two main ingredients. In a small Irish pub in Mayfair the first Burger & Lobster was born. The second Burger & Lobster location in New York City opened in July 2017 in Bryant Park, steps away from Times Square. We look forward to serving you the best burger, lobster and lobster rolls in NYC.
