    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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    New England lobster rolls (cold) w/ fries are bomb. Lemon root cocktail tastes like root beer = delicious. Good for groups, day or night. Little far from greenpoint ave G stop, but usually worth it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
