Reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was craving some crab cakes and lobster rolls. When we got there, we were hoping to buy and eat there. No such luck. The place is take out only, despite the patio seats outside. We ordered some cioppino and clam chowder to go to eat in our hotel. The clam chowder was the creamiest... More

We don't eat seafood or fish at home too often, as I'm just not talented cooking it, but when we do we buy only from Lobsta Bakes. I dislike using frozen anything, and the smell of fish depts. at regular grocery stores is usually pretty fishy, which is NOT good. This place will cook for you, (& if I ever... More

I went there hoping to get a lobster roll. I drove over 50 miles to get there and it turned out that they only had lobster rolls on Friday & Saturday and we were there on Thursday. They did offer to boil up a couple of lobsters to go. After only a 15 minute wait we were on our way... More

No question in my mind: Lobsta Bakes of Maine is the best fish store in Cincinnati. They have a good selection of very fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, crab and mussels. They also sell prepared seafood including New England clam chowder, shrimp salad, crab cakes, cole slaw and the to-die-for Maine blueberry pie. During the summer months they will prepare lobster...

This is a wonderful fish/seafood shop. The fish is always fresh, many different varieties and the service is always friendly and professional. They also have tasty already prepared dishes, i.e. smoked trout spread, cioppino, lobster pie and always delicious individual Maine blueberry pies. In the summer they have lobster picnics for the public to attend. If you are looking for... More

Not only all the amazing products they sell, they are also amazing people. My husband and i went for the first time this past Friday and the service they gave us was outstanding. Their lobster is really good, also bought a blueberry pie that was delish!. Came home with 4 crabs cakes that are gone already. Must try!

We buy fish from lobster bake only. Their scallops are the best,as is the swordfish,walleye and salmon. Take a look thru their recipe folder ( you are welcome to take some from it) the mango salsa recipe is great for the swordfish( actually any white) if you need shrimp for a get together..don't go to a big box store for...
