Lobster West offers lobster… plain and simple. If you are not a seafood fan, this probably isn’t your spot. We enjoyed a Lobster Salad and Clam Chowder. I LOVED that the salad was more than just the knuckles and claws! Not fancy, not pretentious… just...seafood done right.More

We stop here for lunch every time we visit. The lobster rolls, lobster grilled cheese, lobster bisque soup - all so delicious. Definitely 'boss it up' with extra sauce and get the 'boss sauce'. It is fantastic!

This was the best lobster roll we ever had! The service was very fast, the lobster bun was perfectly toasted on three sides, the coleslaw was just terrific perfectly seasoned and not too much sauce. This was a lovely lunch experience!

Stopped for a quick dinner. The lobster rolls were good. A good portion of lobster on a great buttered roll. Sauce on the side so you could skip it if you want. Shared a crab cake. It was very good. Kind of expensive overall but...it is CaliforniaMore

We sampled their three rolls; lobster, shrimp and crab. All were delicious and well prepared. We felt that for the price, the portions were good sized. Eat outside and enjoy the ambiance.

During our San Diego trip, we stopped by Lobster West and enjoyed a Shrimp and Lobster Roll. Its delicious! Staff are friendly and food comes out quickly. They also had some outdoor tables, so we enjoyed that while watching the July 4th parade in Coronado.

If you order a Lobster roll and sit down and look at the sign on the sidewalk you will notice your roll looks nothing like the one in the picture. Pretty pathetic to close the bun and stick all the pieces if lobster on the...top insert. its basically a massive bread roll with some lobster carefully placed so it looks real full but its not.More

Excellent food and service the shrimp roll was fabulous and it is just a couple of blocks from the beach. They have outdoor seating and the food is fresh and delicious.

Lobster West only has a very small eat-in area but they do have some tables outside. A group of 6 - 7 people will be a tight fit inside
