Small venue with big flavor. I tried the crab roll first only because I was in Maryland. It was small but quite tasty. Well I was not full and could not wait for the next adventure so the Lobster Roll it had to be. Scrumptious!...More

We had the seafood trio (lobster, crab meat and shrimp) all served on half of a hot dog bun. All we fresh and tasty. For the portion served believe it was too expensive.

I had heard this was the place to go when in Bethesda. What I did not know that eating here would break the bank. We ordered three rolls, three drinks, two bags of chips and the total was $72.00. Yikes! We expected the rolls to...More

We come here several times per year and always have a very good experience. Very good food, service and the location is great for us-walkable distance from our home. Seating is ample, comfortable and offer inside and outside choices. Recommend it highly for lobster rolls.More

This is a restaurant with great food. They serve three sandwiches lobster, crab and shrimp, all fresh! We had the lobster roll which was outstanding. There is minimal seating inside, but we opted to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening. We thoroughly enjoyed this...More

The lobster roll was good but should be called a mini lobster roll. Way over priced for the size. The coleslaw wasn't great either. Pretty standard, nothing special. Staff wasn't very friendly. Won't return. Cute area though.More

Thank you for your feedback on the meal and service. We are definitely cognizant of the price of lobster (there was actually an article in the Washington Post about it recently) and understand that our price point is a little higher than the average lunch...More

The menu is very basic. The soup was very salty. There were plenty of lobster pieces, but you not tell wha is was as it has no taste. Then the salad was small and again the lobster has no taste at all

Good lobster. Bread is too chilly sometime, my only complaint. Selection of sides, sodas, sufficient.

There are tables with benches outside. There is no area to eat inside. Excellent lobster rolls!

It''s outside seating only. They could accommodate up to 20 people I think. Keep in mind the portions are very small and it's quite expensive. More like an appetizer or snack, than a meal.
