Went with a Groupon. Food was very good. Husband had fisherman's platter which was not all french fries which is sometimes the case. I had lobster pie which was very good. Drinks were expensive and not that strong. Did not buy a drink there on a return visit.

The food and service are very good here. The portions are a little small for the price but you do get enough to eat. You will not have a doggie bag though. the place is very clean and is in a great location.

I went to Massachusetts to see family. We decided to all meet in Salem. Salem was maddening because it was Saturday before Halloween. I chose Black Lobster to have dinner from the fairly good reviews. The restaurant had 5 or 6 cars in the parking lot which worried me. Shame on the Black Lobster! Go to the 99 restaurant across...

Wish I came in the summer to sit outside, but the view was nice from inside too. The food was wonderful. I couldn't believe we got 2 whole lobsters for 19.95.. almost criminal! The mussels were beautiful and tasty. I was too full to get dessert.

Went with my husband for dinner around 7:00pm on a Saturday. First, we were greeted by the hostess and told it would be a 45 minute wait to be seated because the kitchen was backed up. We sat ourselves at a high top table in the bar while we were waiting. In the forty minutes we were waiting, we were... More

Great fresh Seafood. Not sure if restaurant was "short-staffed" as mentioned by other diners. Our waiter disappeared and we were told he had to help in Kitchen, so We go our own silverware, extra napkins, wipes etc and even went to bar several times.Double Lobsters for $19.95 saved the night but we wanted to get our of here quickly !

We were looking for a place to eat in Salem and my girlfriend's grandson suggested The Black Lobster. He and his fiance joined us for dinner. We arrived a little earlier than they and had a drink in the bar area over looking the water. If the night was warmer, we would have sat outside. The four of us were... More
