    Match Burger Lobster was my choice to celebrate my mid-week birthday (and overheard someone else in the quiet space doing the same!). This is always a great meal in a casual space that feels like a New England lobster shack. Even on this frigid night, we ate in the perfectly heated "outdoor" space which is actually open when the weather permits. The three of us each had our favorites: the cracked lobster with chips, the cold lobster roll with Yuzu mayo and the slider combo (a rare burger on a pretzel roll and a mini lobster roll). We started with their delicious sweet and vinegary brussels and ended with a very generous slice of mouth-watering key lime pie. The pinot grigio, cava and coffees rounded out the meal. Great service and relaxed atmosphere make us feel at home. We've been here dozens of times and will continue to return as often as we can!

    Casual but well appointed small space. Food is great! I have a hard time deciding what to order because there are so many great choices. Nice staff. The painting of the cow they display is the most beautiful I have ever seen however I still ordered the burger. Highly recomended!

    Just a disappointing lunch! I hope it was just an off lunch time and not the new norm for the New Year. Restaurant was empty; service was a l o w and the food took forever to come out, so much so that we had to inquire twice.

    A casual but thoughtfully appointed place. The menu had many things I wanted to try. My Husband had the burger lobster roll mini combo...a great way to try both & both were great. Homemade chips were a plus. I had the delicious seafood chowder & a flat Iron steak salad. The staff were welcoming. All in all we felt very comfortable & left with the desire to come back to try many of the other items on the menu. Recomended.

    Food and service were EXCELLENT but be prepared for an expensive lunch. Split steamers, each had bowl of seafood chowder, 1 mini hot lobster roll and 1 combo mini ( 1 burger, 1 lobster and fries), 2 bottles fat tire beer $5 each (very reasonable) and 2 draft IPAs 16 oz ($11 each unaware til got bill so probably our fault)-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------$124 plus tip Despite expense would recommend.

    Delicious food and ambiance was pleasant. Great night to sit outside with family and have a casual weeknight dinner where everyone could get what they want, whether it be great fresh lobster, a burger or even a hot dog! I particularly enjoy the high quality of all the food here, and that you can get a healthy green salad with farm fresh local produce even if you also want a burger and french fries.

    Definitely worth going! One of the few places in the Westport area to sit outdoors & eat fresh seafood and really get value for your money. Really recommend the whole fried clams and the steamer clams, we went back a second time to have them again - also tried the softshell crab sandwich special, it was OK but although I love softshell crabs it really doesn't work as a sandwich! Next time I will get their fried oysters. I've also had their burgers in the past, they are thick and juicy. And our server was excellent, warm and kind.

    Atmosphere is super chill and fun. The tuna crudo was delicious. The lamb burger was so good. The hot lobster was really good, but was very expensive for the amount of lobster. The herb fries were good. The bread pudding was meh. The key lime pie was delicious. My favorite part of the meal. Prices were high, but it is Westport.

    I love a number of the dishes at Match Burger, but I believe they have raised prices more than necessary and their practice of charging for water by serving only bottled water is rediculous.
    Match Burger LobsterResponded on June 30, 2023
    Hi Sandy! Thank you for the note! Due to our shared ware washing space with the butcher shop next door we are unable to have glass or breakable plates at the restaurant. In lew of using plastic or paper cups for water we have decided to charge a very reasonable $1.25 for a CAN of water or more if you want to spring for "the good stuff" My apologies if you cant get passed what we are restricted to do. As for my prices, ask my landlord to lower my rent! My number is 203-820-3211 Matt Storch

    Love the food and service and happy to pay for it. However it’s the only restaurant I’ve been to in Westport or elsewhere that does not provide “complimentary” tap water. They force you to buy bottles of tap or still water. I won’t go back for that reason alone. Besides the addition price gouging, how about the amount of unnecessary single use containers they are sending to landfills? This is a short sighted business practice on many levels.

    The seafood stew was full of sea food, a plus. But the liquid was insipid and not worth eating. Probably the worst I have ever encountered. They should get a new recipe or a better cook. The fried oysters were generous, but heavy on the batter. Less coating would have improved the ability of the oysters to shine. The lamb burger was fine. Ordered well done, but underdone given the order.

    Fresh, fresh fish! You can't beat the value and quality of the whole cracked lobster! It's not huge, but it's tender, sweet and steamed just right. The Ahi tuna burger is delicious with its ginger-raisin jam and yuzu Sriacha aioli. Of course the fried onion rings are a fabulous addition to any of the seafood options. Steamers, tuna crudo, fried oysters...If you love seafood, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Most of the tables are outside and the vibe is beachy. Excellent service!
