From the outside this place looks more like a lobster trap than a lobster boat. This place is not known for, or concerned with, fancy landscaping outside or upgraded furniture inside. Good food and good prices is what this place is about. Seniors: Go for...More

This local restaurant has excellent food and fabulous service in a small informal family "diner" style setting. The Wait staff is friendly and informative to a Midwesterner visiting New England. Affordable fare from the chowder appetizers to the apple crisp ala mode dessert,

This is where i go when I have a craving for fried clams. Their coating is crispy and not too thick. The restaurant is an old shack and a lot of people like it but I would rather take it out and eat elsewhere

We enjoy the broad menu choices at Lobster Boat. They've been around for years, and they remain a consistent quality and value. We certainly come for the seafood, but you will find other options, too! Great family option.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside; you could easily drive by it if you weren't careful. The interior isn't fancy either, but it is clean and inviting. The staff are wicked friendly (as they might say up in that neck of the...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.
