I think we must eat here whenever we're in NYC. It is so nice to walk through Chelsea Market and then belly up to the oyster bar and be able to pick from an amazing selection of fresh oysters from all over the world. It is always so good. The steamed lobster here is delicious too. And the atmosphere is... More

What can I say....over 200 feet of fresh fish on ice. A variety of fiesh oysters and scallops with killer sauces and beer. Lobster rolls are the best ever as simply tender fresh lobster is placed between a butter roster fish bun. a variety of chowders abs fish poster and fish with beer and friends....whats not to love.

Enjoyed the lobster so much! Make sure to go as they open in the morning as this is very famous and long lines are common.

We went for sushi and had a chiraci and the $70 selection of nigiri. Everything was perfect. The atmosphere is really cool as there is so much seafood around you, so much variety that reminded me of my childhood when I went for fishing with my father...great value for money, recommend this place 100%.

We went twice during our stay. It was amazing! They have got sushi, lobsters, oysters, soups, fish counter all under one roof! We have tried the medium and jumbo size lobsters, the later was a monster, definitely enough for a couple. It worked out cheaper than just buying a small lobster which was €29.95 dollars (more or less). There was... More

I went with some friends. The lobster is delicious and really fresh, with few options of side dishes. I tried the potatoes and they're also very good. I do recommend this place. Chelsea Market is a great place to visit with plenty of options to have a good meal.

There were lots of people when I was there but the waiting wasn't that long. I enjoyed the lobster on the small size which costs around USD 36. It's perfectly matched with the butter and lemon.

There is also sides which we did not try. You can also order to the right chowder scallop, lobster etc. In the same space there... More

We popped into Chelsea Market when we were walking the High Line. Two seafood-gasms later, we carried on the walk. The Lobster Place is great - stacked to the rafters with fresh seafood and hungry patrons, it's great fun. We feasted on a selection of incredibly fresh and varied oysters, crab claws and sushi washed down with wine and beers.... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
