I've been visiting the Lobster Claw since I was a little girl and I still love it. Great fried seafood and onion rings and fries. Not many light options so plan to enjoy the fried deliciousness of clams and scallops and shrimp and oysters. Looks like they recently renovated the dining area since it was much brighter and newer since... More

I absolutely love fried lobster with real drawn butter and just a tad of ketchup on it and the Lobster Claw fulfilled my craving to perfection. The portion of lobster was generous, hot and crispy -- not greasy with plenty of fries and onion rings and a goodly portion of coleslaw. It is not listed on the menu that I... More

We don't often indulge in fried seafood, but when we do, this is where we come. Best clams and scallops in the region!

Their fried seafood is the best, and it is reasonably priced. Their coleslaw, fries and onion rings are good as well. We like the various combo plates that are offered and they have specials as well.

Great fresh seafood. Haddock plate worth the price, chowder was very good could be a little more thicker, prices are reasonable for what you get,

Tonight went to the Lobster Claw in North Reading for dinner. Can't say enough good things about this place, consistently good fried seafood without having to travel to the shore.

Traveling between Boston and VT we had a hankering for a last lobster roll before leaving the Bay State. Checked TA and this looked like a good find. Was not disappointed. Both agreed the toll was excellent. Not too much mayo. Loaded with lobster. The Captain's Platter had 2 rolls and was big enough for the two of us. Place... More

If you want great fried seafood and chowder this is it. They make everything simple. It's on paper plates so you see they spend money on the food and not atmosphere. There is always a line at lunchtime.

Today we were dying for seafood and did not want to battle the maine- New Hampshire traffic so we went to Lobster Claw for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost (reasonable), taste ( very good) and portions ( large) We will definately return
