The Lobster Bar is a special treat. Everything on the menu is great. My fam of four shared the bisque and chowder, fries, and MacnCheese. All were fresh and hot and delicious. The slaw is bonus, but the main event - the lobster rolls - divine.

Restaurants had just opened a week ago and it was our anniversary. We hadn't been to the Lobster Bar in a while and we both love it. I was happy to see that they were taking reservations. My husband was surprised and delighted. The food was great as always. The service was excellent.
We had the bisque, Maine lobster roll and BLT lobster roll.
Can't wait to go back.

The food was terrific - and FRESH! The inside is decorated so cute and appropriately. Between both of those things, we definitely felt like we were in New England having a seafood lunch. The only negative was the hostess, who was also our server. She was friendly enough, but she seemed to have an edge to her, which didn’t scream that we were welcome and appreciated.

Lobster is their specialty and they didn't disappoint. Lobster tail pops were greta appetizer. The Maine Lobster Roll as main course, especially with extra lobster, hot the spot. The beer selections were very good as well.

I'd never had the Connecticut style lobster role, but it was delicious! Hope to make it back there soon after the whole virus mess clears up.

We had a party of 6 for a week night dinner at 7 pm. We ordered 3 appetizers, the lobster pops were the best, shrimp cocktail was run of the mill, and the crab dip had good flavor but not enough to use up all of the chips that came with it. The Lobster rolls were very good with fresh large chunks of meat. The fish sandwich was excellent but the slaw made the bun soggy very quickly. Lobster Mac is big enough to share and was very good. Lobster bisque was excellent, tasted homemade.
The negative was the crab cakes. These seem to be made from the crab dip. No lump crab meat and a weird pudding like consistency.
The other issue was we did get our fries until we were almost finished eating despite a very small crowd on hand.

Our 1st time The Lobster Bar. The spicy crab dip is phenomenal. Our party of 4 ordered Lobster Pot Pie, Seafood Stew, Maine Lobster Roll, Lobster Mac & Cheese, and Fries. Each was excellent. Fries had a nice crunch to them. Bright inside. Minimal decor. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The whole ambience was casual and comfortable. A great value for the quality of the food.

The food was just ok...maybe my expectations were too high. The cost was expensive for what you received and I just was meh over the taste.

Parking was OK. We had to walk a block. If you expect the taste of Maine, this isn't it. The restaurant is very different and was busy. We like our slaw a bit sweeter. Good beer selection. Servers were fast and very pleasant. We ate all of our mac-cheese.

Loved the Maine lobster roll and wow those fries were perfect. The lobster bisque however, had a few shells I had to discard but taste was right on point. Service was great.
