Lobster Shop South
Great LunchWe recently moved to Lacey from Seattle and have many friends still in Seattle. We are retired and this is about half way between the 2 cities. Great place to meet up and each does not have to drive as far. It was a lovely lunch, everyone was quite pleased with their lunch choice. Will come again.

This has long been a favorite place for us and it did not fail to please. Great for dinner as well as lunch. The deck is a wonderful place for cocktails or dinner when the weather is warm.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers day brunchThe hostesses were not the brightest about their job. They were not able to handle the reservation system. They told us they did not have our reservation and then they figured it out. The food was so so. Our waiter was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a late Mother's Day dinnerHad a late Mother's Day dinner with the family.

Attentive, friendly service without being pushy. Four meals prepared very well resulted in high praise from all. House wines were quite good. Pricing somewhat on the high side, but to be expected.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDine with a Great viewThe food at the lobster Shop is always very good to excellent. The staff is very professional and accommodating. At 7:30 on Mother's Day they were out of jumbo prawns. A bit pricey. In any weather the view is a treat!!

The choices they offer are awesome and so much better than any other place with a early dinner special menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Day, Good FoodThe Lobster Shop was wonderful as usual - beautiful weather, good service, good food - wonderful view! Loved the shrimp specials that the chef whipped up. Thank you for a great experience as usual! The whale watching was an unexpected added treat!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Class TreatmentStunning views and friendly, professional service combined with top notch food make this a dining experience surpassed by few other establishments. The Twilight menu is superb, yet frugal. And the evenings on the water are romantic and perfect for that special celebration.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the Twilight dinerThe food was divine. The vinegar and oil had fresh mint in it and was lovely and refreshing. Our server was outstanding. Made good suggestions about the wine and especially the dessert. Next time I would choose the lemon cake with fresh blueberries. The view is always a joy, the flour less chocolate cake was good, but like fudge, too many calories! Loved, loved the salad with pecans and the entree mixed seafood with noodles and a green curry sauce was wonderful. We will go again soon, can't beat the food, view and price!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFor the first time, I madeFor the first time, I made my reservation for 9 people by computer and there was a follow up a few days later to confirm that we were committed to the time....from there on it was a thorougly enjoyable experience, I was the perfect hostess and you did all the work.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was amazing. Great food.It was amazing. Great food. Never a disappointment. My mother said the crab cakes were all crab and hardly any filler. The calamari was tender and the mussles were great. The twilight meals are healthy portions and a great value. Can't wait to go when the weather warms up to sit out on the deck. We went there to celebrate my father's birthday (which was that day), but he had passed 10 days before...so it was a great memory and a place that he enjoyed when ever he went.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service.

I'll be going back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLounging Lunch by the Water!My husband and I both love the Lobster Shop. Friends are always impressed when I take them there. I was enjoying a lunch with a friend when last there and it was the perfect environment for a long relaxing lunch built for catching up. I was able to use Open Table for making our reservation and when I arrived my reservation was everything I expected. I had requested a booth by the window, for the water view, and that's exactly what I received. We had multiple courses of fabulous food and the tab was still respectable. Chowder was great as always, and my mixed Seafood Louie was so yummy and fresh! My friend had the seafood melt and really enjoyed it. Thanks Lobster Shop for another great dining experience!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCan you say amazing?OMG! I can't believe I haven't been here before! The food was wonderful and fresh!

What more can one ask for when dining out?3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI was in the area for an all-dayI was in the area for an all-day workshop and found that Lobster Shop South was conveniently located on the route back to my hotel. I read some of the reviews prior to my visit, which helped me narrow down my choices of where to have dinner. The food and service were both excellent. My server was attentive, engaged, and friendly, but not overly intrusive. He helped me narrow down my choices for dinner, and his recommendation was excellent! I enjoyed my meal immensely, and if I'm back in the area again, I will definitely plan another meal there.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
