We found this restaurant accidentally on trip advisor. Got there for lunch and immediately noticed how clean it appeared and friendly the staff was. Quite a large and varied menu so it took us a few minutes to settle on choices . My wife had fried shrimp and I chose the small seafood combo. Food was fried perfectly and plentiful... More

It's good for what it is. Very popular among the elderly. The menu never changes and they love it that way. It's very convenient to the Exeter Hospital and a very popular spot! The wine was Woodbridge

I had buffalo shrimp appetizer & Jumbo Lobster Roll - both of which were excellent. Service was also excellent and decor was good. Easy parking in strip mall. Has 24 hour Rite Aid next door.

Ate here with my son and some friends after a soccer tournament. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. My son had a full lobster with side for $20. The seafood medley was delicious at $29. The food was very fresh and cooked very well. This is not a fancy place. If you are looking for a great deal... More

Since it is close by and received a lot of reviews, we were really looking forward to getting some nice seafood. We arrived about 5:30 so it wasn't busy. I ordered the "Medley" from the baked seafood menu which was a combo of lobster tails, shrimp and scallops--all my favorites. When the waitress served it, she said the cook put... More

Good portions of very well prepared seafood, polite servers offer good choices, they know the menu very well and offer good advice on menu options. Fried seafood is probably the tastiest, maybe not the healthiest but good flavors await you at the Lobsterboat and if you are health conscience there are many broiled options as well enjoy the food
