The Lobster House was a must for dinner at least a few times each summer. The last 2 visits did not own up to the 5 stars I would have given in the past. Food is good, not great. The better option is getting your food on the outside deck (different, more casual menu).

My family are avid seafood eaters and were not impressed by the flavor of their meals. Especially my Father . Basic flavours and the interior could use a little sprucing up. Nothing was awful, the meals were average. Now, if you wanted something frozen to drink, you had to get up and go outside and order it from their outside bar? I found that odd and inconvenient. On the flip side, thet were generous with butter, lol. Does that interest anyone? ‍♀️

The atmosphere was very nautical, as expected. The wait staff was great, the food each of us had was terrific. If I am ever in the area I will definitely go back.

We normally eat in the restaurant, this was the first time we tried their outdoor Raw Bar. It is self serve, but a great atmosphere and great food. A different menu than the restaurant, but you can also get the restaurant's take out and eat it on the deck.
