    Hands down the best lobster roll in the Bay Area. Of the three types of lobster rolls, stick with the wildly fresh and tender naked version, which comes with butter and lemon on the side. Read more

    The lobster rolls here are delicious. This might be sacrilege but even bigger and better than most in New England. Chowder is good too but very heavy! The outdoor tables are great on a nice day.

    Delicious! Get the lobster roll - we preferred them dressed - and sit at a table outside in the sun. The homemade chips were also really good. We'll be back for fresh crab and lobster by the pound!

    Hidden gem 5 minutes from SFO. Grab a lobster roll and a seat on the picnic tables outside. Delicious and chill, can’t believe just found out about this place!

    The seasonal roll right now is amazing. Sweet lobster meat topped with creamy avocado and finely chopped bacon. All on top of that beautifully toasted roll

    Everything is amazing! Lobster soup is creamy and flavorful. Crab nachos and the homemade potato chips were to die for (esp with a little of that seasoning salt that's kept on the table)

    Best for your buck in order-1lb lobster, lobster roll, lobster tacos (not worth it even during "hh", best to go w $3 shrimp tacos). Tbh, I preferred the crab nachos over the lobster :x

    A lot of lobster, little mayonnaise, crispy, thick-cut chips and fresh coleslaw with cranberries.

    COVID precautions are an A+ here! Sit at a table, scan the QR code, and the food comes right to your table! There are even heat lamps to keep you warm in the Peninsula fog!

    Sooo. The lobster rolls are good. The steamed lobsters are too much work. The lobster Mac n cheese is good but has bacon in it. The corn lobster chowder is delicious. More like a bisque really.

    Best lobster rolls on the peninsula, I like them dressed, a cup of the lobster chowder, and ya jus gotta have half a dozen oysters on the half shell to start it all off.

    Came back for the lobster claws (4) and a bottle of Ballast Point Grapefruit sculpin. Just as good as the first time and only $10 during happy hour (3-6)

    Great lobster rolls with big chunks of lobster! I had the seasonal, with avocado & bacon bits. Yum! Seafood gumbo is tasty, too.

    Try their lobster roll here--it's amazing! They also sell live lobsters and other seafood here too if you'd prefer a night in at home.

    The whole crab is good but cold. Lobster rolls don’t compare to east coast. Raw foods are the best. Overall food is just okay but the outside tables and ambience are great

    Go for the 1.5 lb lobster instead of the 1 lb. You won't regret it!

    The lobster corn chowder is very memorable. Small salad is not really small, and the lobster platter is nicely price. Fresh food great prices

    Agreed with others, portion is small, maybe it shrank over the years. Avocado as a topping is very Californian but it drowns out the lobster taste.

    I enjoyed the lobster but it was smaller than advertised and I had to keep asking for the bib and the nut cracker. Also, it was not a good deal for the price.
