    Off course, I always order Maine Lobster Roll. It's yummy (but a little bit small and pricy, though.) Lobster Bisque and Fried calamari are also good.

    About as good as it gets in the Bay Area for a little New England'y lobster (and crab) rolls

    The lobster rolls were great! The only thing is it is pretty pricey - we paid almost $50 for two for the amount of food that can't be considered as a full meal. It should be $$$$ in the description.

    The Double Play (2 lobster rolls, fries, slaw) is good for big appetites or for sharing.

    The lobster dinner is the only hot lobster menu item that just happens to be gluten free.

    The naked lobster roll (lobstah roll) is simply delicious. It's nice to have the mayo and butter on the side.

    Oyster po' boys! Ipswich clams! Pretty darn authentic lobster rolls! Redwood City doesn't exactly have the Maine coastal climate going on... but it's otherwise spot-on in a LOT of fashions. I love it.

    The naked roll is the best one and if you're going with two people get the double roll to save a few bucks. The only negative was the blueberry desserts-not very good.

    The food is pretty good but if you're here at lunch prepare to wait in a deceptively short line. It looks benign but the cashier takes forever with each customer.

    If it's your first time, your kinda hafta get the Lobster Roll, but plenty of variety to try out on future visits. Try the Carolina BBQ sauce on your fries! Save room for fresh blueberry cobbler.

    Being from Maine, I had to try it. The lam chowdah is pretty close to home but they use strips and not the bellies. The Haddock was spot on. They had Shipyard and Old Thumper, my favorite beers.

    Rhode Island chowder had a lot of clams in it. Naked lobster roll is the way to go with a little butter over the top. Pricey but good. Lobster shack atmosphere.
