    New England or Connecticut Lobster roll, you can't go wrong. Then work your way south to Kent street, follow it all the way to the East River, enter Transmitter Park and enjoy the beautiful view!

    We've said it before and we'll say it again and again—the Lobster Joint has a dope happy hour. Enjoy $1 oysters and $4 lobster, crab cake, and fried oyster sliders from 4pm to 7pm on weekdays. Read more

    Any of the lobster rolls, or the crispy oyster roll with a side of fried clam strips. Be sure to wash it all down with a Lobster Bloody Mary (or several), which comes with a whole lobster claw in it. Read more

    The lobster roll is on par with the best in the city but being that this is Brooklyn, you get more for your money, with a choice of fries, salad, or chips. And if you ask nicely, watermelon

    Amazing HH with $1 oysters and $4 sliders. If you are dining with the right person I recco an order of fried clam strips and go halvsies on the NE and CT Lob rolls so you get to enjoy each.

    Happy hour 4-7, get in line and order everything. Their house cocktails are $4, beer $4, sliders (choice of crabcake fried oyster, or lobster), you guessed it $4. Not to mention $1 oysters. Heaven.

    Quality lobster rolls, oyster shooters, fried fish, and more New England classics with a large outdoor space. Happy hour cocktails are a steal.

    Food is fresh. Everything on the menu is good. Lobster rolls are good. Anything with lobster in it has a ton of lobster. The lobster chowder was oozing with yummy lobster too.

    Summertime trips to the Rockaways are behind us now, but luckily the Lobster Joint concession stand has a permanent restaurant in Greenpoint. Grab a pitcher of Lobster Ale during their happy hour. Read more

    The happy hour oysters are great! $1/oyster as of this post date... The Lonely Sailor cocktail was also tasty. Only one piece of lobster in my lobster corn chowder, though.

    Huge portions of fresh, tasty seafood at a lightening quick pace. From 4-7 p.m. on weekdays you can get $1 oysters, $4 sliders, $4 drafts and $16 pitchers, and $4 oyster shooters.

    Pretty cool place. I wasn't too impressed with the crab cakes. They were a little on the salty side. Popcorn shrimp and drinks were good. My friend enjoyed the lobster dinner.

    Lobster. Claw. Bloody. Mary. There's not much else to say about this decadent cocktail, which is served in a pint glass with enough accoutrements to sub as a meal. Read more

    The Lobster Corn Chowder. There are chunks of lobster in every bite. The New England Lobster roll with a side salad

    Came at 3:30 - got to take advantage of the lunch specials AND stuck around for happy hour! Lobster sliders were rad and $1 oysters were delightful.

    Vegans don't fear. Delicious asparagus and boiled potatoes. They have lots of vegan sides. Get the tequila cocktail!

    I come here for the not-lobster entrees and they are always on point. The salmon and mahi mahi sandwiches are always fresh and worth every penny.

    Amazing seafood and a great outdoor space make this an obvious summer favorite. The lobster rolls here are delectable though very expensive.

    Forget lobster. On these chilly nights you need the half roast chicken with mash and gravy. Order a second side of mash if you're hungry. So. Good.

    Gotta speak up for both the $1 happy hour oysters and the fried oysters that had a magically juicy center. Lobster roll was great but pricey.

    Lobster salad and my favorite French fries on earth. They're consistently stupid-perfect. Also, oysters and $8 cocktails on a backyard patio.

    Go for the lobster roll unless you feel like having soup and siders, then, go for the clam chowder. Enjoy the backyard!

    Delicious lobster roll. Mayo-based (lightly). Served w a great pickle and Cape Cod chips too. The people who work there really care if you're enjoying your food :)

    The fried oysters are great, the marinara sauce for the calamari is actually spicy, and the fish and chips is amazing.

    Amazeballs lobster salad with avocado and grapefruit slices. Lobster bisque is perfect with pieces of lobster and corn. Hmmm mom good! :)

    Bomb lobster roll with bacon and avocado. Those things can't come cheap sadly, but it's worth a visit for a quick meal that doesn't taste like one.

    When placing your order, and the kitchen is slammed, tell them you want your appetizers first. Otherwise, you may get your mains before your apps.

    You are so infinitely stupid if you don't get the lobster roll with the lobster bisque. Seriously, get it and eat it, jerks. So delicious.

    Don't waste your time (or $$$) on the salads or sandwich. Stick with the lobster roll and lobster mac & cheese and you won't be disappointed. Watch out for overuse of tarragon though....shudder.
