Certainly different to a ‘run of the mill’ English restaurant but this place is excellent. The staff are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu focused (as you might expect) on Lobster and the three all slightly different types of lobster meals were so good. You...More

We sat in the garden, as it was unseasonably hot. The food was great, and so were the cocktails. There was a large screen with the football on, but it wasn't too much. This is a very relaxed place, and felt really comfortable.

We love this place for very simple and fresh dishes. Lobster roll is great served with green salad and delicious roll. The salad comes without dressing. Nice decor, pleasant atmosphere. Friendly service.

Eaten amazing cuisine around the globe. Best penne I have ever had here. Simply perfect. Friendly, helpful staff and a fun and funky atmosphere. Would go back and that's saying something.

Great spot for a fish sandwich, and the lobster chowder is great. However pricing wise it' s a good 15-20% over the market rate for similar food in the neighborhood.

Food tasty, reasonable prices, good range of local beers. Quiet during the day, which makes for easy conversation. Easy to miss if you are driving past.

We went back to the Lobster Joint the day of the NYC Marathon (Sunday November 6, 2016), and had to maneuver along the neighborhood streets (some had not been reopened). There isn't an obvious sign, unless one is looking directly at the Joint. Inside, loud...More
