The lobster bisque is absolutely amazing! Great for dinner or lunch. A little pricy but the quality of the food was well worth it

Our visit to Lobster Cooker was a fantastic experience. We were a group of 10. The service was friendly and courteous, and the food was scrumptious! It is my idea of a quaint New England establishment.

The lobster was delicious. I had the lobster roll. Perfectly cooked. I didn't even need butter. The prices are reasonable for the lobster and my kids burgers were great also. Plenty of seating inside and out. And they have Moxie soda! Love it!

It's actually neither, we bread our seafood. We egg wash our seafood and lightly coat it in Drumrock which is a breader.
