It's nostaligia driven for sure...but stays in the game due to it's penchant to attract the older crowd. Its old school fried food...sticky menus with condiments left on the table all day long [kind of gross and possibly, unsafe?] Unseasoned. Aftertaste from either oil or...More

Just spent the summer in Maine, had a lot of seafood. On our way back to Fla had to stop at the BEST seafood restaurant in NE. Delicious shrimp, scallops & lobster bake dish. Wait staff excellent too.

We are pretty picky when it comes to seafood restaurants, having grown up on the shore in New England and spending time on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and in San Francisco. In that context, the Lobster Boat is good, if not spectacular. The seafood melody -...More

No. There have been times where we've had to wait a little bit, but it has never been a problem being seated in a reasonable amount of time. Larger groups might need to wait a bit more if it's busy.
