My wife and I met some relatives of ours who were visiting in the area at S S Lobster for a bite to eat. Service is taken and paid for at the counter when you walk in. Then they bring it to you at the table were you seat yourself. Nothing fancy here, but need not necessarily be fancy. Fairly... More

The food is good, and often the market has great deals. However, this is extremely ...rustic...setting.

S S Lobster's food is good but its expensive and the service is very slow. Last time I went I waited 15 minutes just to get in the door and I was going to put in an order to go. . Luckily I called in my order while I was standing in line

When you want good sea food you go to SS lobster, when you go to a restaurant, they most likely got it from SS lobster. So why are you paying that extra price??? The fish is heavenly...the lobster divine, the steamers ohhh la la, the clams.. well enough try it yourself.

I have been coming to SS Lobster for many years and as my review says I have never been disappointed. When my Florida family members come to visit this is where I take them to eat. If you are looking for ambiance this is not the place to come. This is just delicious food.

I love to go here to grab some lobster bisque & a shrimp cocktail. They're busy however the line moves quickly. I find it a quirky typically New England kind of place. I've heard others give positive reviews of the food here & I think the lines speak to the quality. You can get food to go, a sit down... More

This place is truly a hidden gem! The lobster was great and price was even better 2 lobsters for $15.99! Very friendly staff, clean, small town atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling that area.

My mom and I had two sub-par meals close together, but I'm a firm believer that every restaurant can have an off-day. So just prior to Thanksgiving, we decided to splurge and have a lobster dinner that would replace our Thanksgiving dinner as we wouldn't be together on the holiday. I ordered the shore dinner and my mom ordered the... More
