Great food and service! Went for a date night and we ate inside. We both travel to Maine regularly and were impressed to find a restaurant that makes lobster rolls that are as fresh as Maine. Highly recommend this restaurant to a friend.

The food is so good that I don't care anything about the rest of the place. Nonetheless, the service is sharp. The waitstaff knows how each beer selection tastes. The casualness of the restaurant makes one relax completely after a day of work or school. Honestly, there is nothing I would change.

I'll start off my saying I'm totally baffled by the 3 and under reviews about this place. Great location, quality, delish food, and good (enough) service.

Many of the reviews say the portions are small for the money... I say, we are all spoiled Americans who don't understand portion sizing and price-per-portion up-charging.

First of all, people... it's LOBSTER. Lobster is expensive no matter where you are/go. So, $18-29 for lobster meals is pretty standard in CT. I got the brunch lobster Benedict special ($24). It was enough food (with no appetizers) that I took half home for another meal... and it was delicious: fresh, perfectly cooked lobster (on corn bread - unique and different!) with a poached egg and a very interesting aioli, plus a side salad.

2 people in our party did the "mini sampler" one with the lobster roll and one with the carpet bagger slider... so good! We also had someone try the standard cold lobster roll, which is probably the ONLY meal that could be considered a small-ish portion. Even so, it was fresh and delicious.

All in all, this is a local lobster place I would definitely return to!

I ordered the lobster burger off the specials menu. It was packed full of delicious lobster meat and very flavorful.

Great service with a welcome attitude. The lobster burger was great and of course the French fries and onion ring combo is always great.

Match Burger Lobster was packed and noisy, but we ate inside and it was fine. I ordered a beer, but you don't serve cold beer in a warm plastic "glass". It absorbs your body heat quickly and doesn't stay cold. Had the caesar salad which, at $10, is barely acceptable for 6 slices of romaine, cut up, served with croutons, and a dressing that was dry, not creamy and tasty. The seafood chowder was okay, that's all. Should be memorable. Wasn't. The "shishito" (Japanese) peppers were lightly breaded and deep fried, and way too oily. Not the way it should be prepared to get the best flavor out of these delicious peppers. Thin deep fried onion rings were okay. That's about it. The lobster in the brioche bun was cooked nicely and tasty, but truly in a bun. Not a roll. A small bun that held at most, an ice cream scoop of lobster for $24. Are you kidding me? The foot long hot dog was way too salty. Unfortunately, Match Burger Lobster is overrated and overpriced. I can't imagine why it's so popular, but that's Westport. When people overpay, they like to believe they had great food and, well ... that's why restaurants are lucky if they last two years.

A friend mentioned this place to me and with no dinner plans this past Saturday we decided to give it a try. That it was on OpenTable was a plus. We found parking on the street a block away. This is a small place with dining outside on a patio. My husband said his seafood chowder--a very large cup portion--was excellent. Lobster roll can be order hot or cold and our server recommended the hot version which was excellent. Full of lobster served on a brioche roll with homemade chips. Side orders of fries and onion rings at $3 each were a bargain and really good. I noticed that most people seated near us had ordered burgers which also looked very good. Prices are reasonable; wine & beer are available. We liked this place very much and will return.

The hostess was wonderful. It was super busy and an unusually hot evening. She was friendly, welcoming and took great care of us. The food was wonderful as usual. We had the soft shell crab and lobster burger - so delish. And the frozen Rose, amazing! We will definitely be back.

Food was good. Waiter was polite and very apologetic for an order being talked over by staff and patrons for about 30 minutes before being brought to our table. They made a new burger and compensated us with complimentary dessert. It gets very busy there. Had 8pm reservations and was told it would be a 45 minute wait for a table outside, lucky we got there at a time when a table by the entrance was open and we got to have it. Not sure what the point of reservations are if you won’t be accommodated upon arrival.

Steamers and Soft Shell crab special were awesome. Lobster roll was pretty great, but they seem to have reduced the amount of lobster in the last year. Overall, I love it here, but REALLY wish they would use glasses as opposed to single use plastic cups. We need all need to be adding less to the landfill. I hope they change this VERY soon.

Match Burger Lobster is a super casual spot in Westport with really good, again casual, food. We had caesar salad with lobster which was fantastic, a fish special= also outstanding. The only less than fantastic offering was the spinach salad with a burger atop. The dressing was too oily and the burger overspiced. Do try the fried mozzarella and truffle fries!

First visit to the restaurant was good -- got a 7:30 reservation one hour before and we were seated deep inside the dining room. Michelle, our server, was really helpful, but she recommended the $25 lobster burger and it was awful. Super dry and flavorless. Fortunately, the regular burger with caramelized onions was spectacular, and the fries were hot and crispy. When we left, two adult women were screaming at each other right outside the main entrance, which made the latest "Real Housewives" episode look really tame. Parking is a nightmare since the lot is super small, but it was overall a nice night. Not sure we will go back, however.

This is really overpriced and not a good value. The lobster roll is tiny for the price. There were three small pieces of fish in the fish and chips. The steamers portion was so bad I thought it was a joke. The prices of beers was astronomical - 12 dollars for a can of beer that most places would charge half or at the most 8 dollars for was the order of the day. You look into a parking lot with the interstate just above the restaurant. There is a view of the river however. I won't be back. Very disappointing.
