Having never been to Chelsea Market I didn't know what I was getting into. It's very busy, but I was going especially for Lobster Place. It was crazy busy but a huge selection of seafood! My mom & I split the lobster roll, lobster bisque & lobster mac & cheese. All great, check this place out!

Great place, lots of seafood choice. The only problem you have to stand to eat the oysters. Lots and lots of different oysters which can be served with wine.

After recently visiting Maine, it's hard to compete with their lobster rolls. But, I decided to try one and it was actually good, The staff was friendly. Overall, a great experience.

A must visit for food lovers. You will not be able to get enough lobster, crabs legs, oysters and anything seafood. The different areas inside this unassuming market place provide some of the freshest seafood that you can get anywhere. Even better sahsimi/sushi than Tokyo or Kyoto. Quite stunningly fresh sea urchin and toro. Just save space for the king... More

Visited Chelsea Market today and had lunch at the Lobster Place. Oysters were so fresh and Shrimp tempura sushi was delicious. Very lively spot, sitting at window bar and enjoying the sights. Highly recommend a visit there if your in the city.

If you like raw oysters, this is the place to sample a large variety. You can pick one or as many as you like. Each variety of oysters came with a different price point. I had already eaten lunch but couldn’t resist trying a couple of oysters. I tried 2 oysters from the following East Coast regions: • Oyster Pond... More

Amazing fresh sushi. Came here for lunch with my partner and we sat at the sushi bar. Watching the chefs prepare the food was truly an experience. A bit pricey, but definitely worth the spend as we both had sushi that was out of this world.

We felt like we'd walked into the ocean without getting wet. If you love seafood like we do, this was heavenly. The bright lights illuminate the beauty of the edible marine life. Clean, clean floors. Slick signage. We sat at the sushi bar for a single round of king crab. Wow. Melted in our mouths. It was a good-sized portion... More

The Lobster Place is an excellent seafood retail store with a small take-out area in terms of physical size but with a very active operation which more than fills the adjacent stand up tables offered to clientele. My lobster roll was presented in a freshly toasted frankfurter bun. A piece of lettuce nestled plentiful lobster pieces which were beautifully fresh... More
