    I don’t know Luke, but he manages to make what is likely the best lobster roll in the city. The Connecticut style rolls (warm with butter) aren’t huge, but are packed with delicious and tender lobster

    Amazing! The lobster is my favorite.. The shrimp is good too.. Keep in mind these are small.. I took half shrimp and half lobster and they weren't enough 😱 very small

    the lobster roll here is perfect. that's all you need. Riesling is decent; didn't like the honey blueberry lemonade.

    The lobster roll is super! It's to die for. If you're with some company try ordering the smorgasbord Noah's Ark! The price is truly worth the value and the staff are as good as hospitable.

    Buttery sweet lobster rolls and a beer. Perfect salve for a summer day.

    Great UES outpost of the LES version for awesome Lobster Rolls

  • Leisha M.

    Lobster rolls are delicious. I always get the crab roll too. Don't forget to try their mexicane soda. I think I like this more than coca cola!

    Lobster rolls are amazing but a bit small. If you're really hungry get a shrimp roll and a clam chowder for about the same price.

    Tried the crab roll and it was awesome with sriracha. The rolls are on the small side, so I'd go for the taste of Maine if you're hungry.

    Not sure where their pickles are from, prob just a supermarket jar brand, but I like them. I don't think they charge extra for it so just ask for one.

    A lobster roll is magnificent.

  • Clayton D.

    Had the Noah's ark with all three kinds of rolls for two people. Lobster roll was the best. Next time would just order full size for that one.

    Friendly staff, make sure to stamp your loyalty card. Order the Noah's Arc for two or more people.

    Don't let the name fool you. The crab and shrimp rolls are best in class.

    My fav place so far! Try the shrimp & crab! I'm sure the lobster is better somewhere else.

    Order the Noah's Arc! Its perfect for two people. Lobster, crab & shrimp rolls with a pickle on the side. Plus your choice of chips & soda. The Mexican cola is must!

    Very tasty sampling menu - though pretty pricey. Sat on the bench outside & people watched. Artisan root beer was gorgeous - alongside the crab claw, pickle, lobster, crab & shrimp rolls w/ CC chips

    Just order the damn lobster roll....dont bother with anything else. the hot sauce is a nice option, but it's not for purists.

    Overpriced, but worth to try at least once. The orange soda tastes great.

    There is never anyone at the register. At least they will double stamp your card for the wait. Don't forget to ask.
