    I have been to both Luke's Lobster and Da Lobsta. While I do like Luke's Lobsters, I prefer Da Lobsta. The lobster rolls here are bigger and less expensive, while they also have regular sodas.

    Pretty darned good lobster roll. Just like they make in Maine. Interestingly, the chef that started this place used to be a very high end gourmet chef-and started this to have fun.

    Perfectly flavored lobster roll on a buttery bun. Decent amount of lobster and not too expensive. Spicy pickles are a nice addition for only $1

    Good God they make a delicious lobster roll. Toasted buttered bun, lots of lobster (chilled) and a delicious sauce to top it off.

    Tasty but couldn't stop thinking about all the butter, fat, sodium and cholesterol in every bite

    I highly recommend avoiding this location--horrendous wait for food & rude servers. Go to the French Market location--never had any service issues there.

    Lobster roll is delish, not necessarily "authentic" New England but really tasty none the less

    If you have a hearty appetite definitely go for 2 rolls. Pretty tasty though.

    Lobsta purist -- get the traditional! Generous chunks of lobster meat with garlic butter, celery salt and a slick of mayo!

    It was amazing. I got the grilled cheese lobster and my sister got the classic lobster roll. Both were good, just know that the lobster roll is not served hot!

    What a great treat! Ever since visiting my uncle in Maine I've been craving a really good lobster roll. W/a GiltCity in hand I tried it out. Incredibly fresh and delicious roll. Da Lobsta is delicious

    Despite their ridiculous name, the shrimp salad isn't bad.

    None of the trendy flavours intrigued me enough. I went Traditional and it was great! Could have used more drizzled butter, but da lobsta was piled high!!!

    The bread on the grilled cheese could be nicer and crispier, especially for $14... Not exactly gourmet
