Went here for dinner and the place was buzzing. Fun and friendly atmosphere. The lobster rolls were okay but what we really loved were the naked lobster tails. Will definitely go back!

First time visitor to this establishment. Stayed at the Marriott nearby and wanted to find a place that served seafood that wasn't too close. This place was a short walk away so I tried it out. Good selection of seafood choices, but the lobster is king. I tried the Dressed Lobster roll with a side appetizer of the Mexi Shrimp... More

Recently had lunch on a warm day where we could sit outside on the picnic tables. The naked lobster roll was a bit pricey but very good. My wife had the lobster bisque which was rich but equally great. I had the feeling I could have been in a neighborhood, funky Boston restaurant. It's nestled in an industrial area but... More

In an industrial area, so you need exact street address or GPS to find. Parking on street and around the market (side and back). You can buy fresh (they have a tank) or frozen seafood by the pound. Maine lobsters (fresh, cooked, or tails). Lobster meat, crab meat, scallops, oysters, mussels, clams, and sauces. There's a soup, salad, taco, and... More

Lots of dressed lobster in a very soft warm and fresh roll. The Coleslaw was delicious and the chips were crispy and seasoned well. Will definitely... More

Enjoyed the meal. They make their own chips, which is great. Got it to go. Would have been better to eat there instead.

Description
New England Lobster Market & Eatery is an authentic east coast seafood experience in the San Francisco area. We started in the wholesale business delivering quality seafood at a great value and took that experience to serve customers at our restaurant. Whether you're shopping at the market or grabbing a meal at the eatery, when you visit you'll discover live Maine lobsters, Dungeness crabs, mussels and more. Diners at our restaurant love the dressed lobster rolls, lobster corn chowder and crab nachos. We welcome families and can accommodate business group and parties in our space. We also serve beer, wine and champagne to complement your meal. As long-time merchants in the wholesale shellfish business, we are able to consistently delight our customers with great prices and superb products. We promise you won't find an experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area! Eatery Hours: 11am-9pm daily
