    Ok, this is one of the best lobster rolls I have had so far. Great but not cheap for 33 USD.

    Lobster roll only
  • Rebecca M.
    The lobster roll is one of the meatiest I've ever had. Strawberry rhubarb pie is also heavenly! However Ed's is still my favorite lobster roll spot in the city. No liquor at Peal's which is a minus.

    This cozy, homey place in West Village makes the best seafood that I've had in years. Oysters are plump and juicy, and the lobster rolls are perfect. The lobster meat is really tender. No happy hour.

    I had the oysters. Fried to perfection and laid in a tarter sauce filled shell. And the lobster roll...I was sad to get was THAT GOOD.

    Lobster roll is one of the best in the city, fresh blue point oysters. Sit at the bar if you can - you won't feel like you're in NYC

    The famous lobster roll at this West Village oyster bar is heavy on the lemony mayonnaise (and the price tag). But it's made with huge chunks of fresh lobster meat and paired with shoestring fries. Read more

    A great spot to dine solo at the bar. The fried oysters pair excellently with an allagash white.

    Lobster roll is mediocre, clam shoulder is too salty because the chef didn't compensate for the bacon. Fried oysters sauce lacks refinement. Deserts are uninspiring.

    Luke's, Chelsea Market and Mermaid Inn cannot compete in the lobster roll game with Pearl. Served with the most amazing shoestring fries, this is the best lobster roll dish in NYC.

    On a recent visit, the oyster roll was the best item, a mayo-smeared bun piled with 10 oysters so light they threatened to float up to the tin ceiling. Read more

    My ideal Pearl meal: large bucket of steamers, lobster roll w salad (bc shoestring fries are a pain to eat), and a butterscotch praline sundae.

    We love the oysters, but the Lobster Roll is mind-blowing. The simple bun holds a grand portion of creamy lobster cooked to a perfect texture accompanied by salty, delicious shoestring fries.

    The lobster roll is chock full of meaty lobster but has a TON of mayonnaise. I'd go for the oysters and boiled lobster (served with a cute ramekin of corn pudding).

    Great selection of oysters and the boulibasse was good. Skip the lobster roll, it relies to heavily on mayo and seasoning. But get a side of the fries.

    Sit at the bar if there is room and don't go anywhere. Since you're there you might as well go ahead and order the lobster roll. Enjoy!

    Lobster roll: Shock for Europeans. Not only that you get oysters at the bar, the lobster is served in bread hot-dog style...and there is more: as side are fancy shoestring french fries.
