Match Burger Lobster
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.
Match never fails to please!!
Super accommodating, always the freshest lobsters!
Lamb burgers were absolutely delicious!!!
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.
fresh Bloom fried oysters and a great burger and crispy hand-cut fries, can't beat Match, especially with outdoor seating, most reasonable prices
Great fresh food, very tasty, prices are reasonable
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.
Love the food and relaxed atmosphere! We have eaten there a few times now and always pleased with food and service! Great fun restaurant!
Our server was lovely and made up for a very odd 90 minute wait. Food was good but a bit off due to the wait.
Amazing ! Best lobster roll I’ve ever had . All meat none of the yucky cartilage. Brioche bun was incredible: will be back soon !
Very fun and surprisingly good food with a staff that cares.
Very good, but way too pricey for such a small lobster roll
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.
Decent food. Burgers are the best choice. Skip the soggy fries. Nothing special about the onion rings either.
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.
Never had a bad meal at Match Burger Lobster. The match burger is phenomenal, the shrimp cocktail is outstanding, and the view is lovely.
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.
Lobster for eight, no problem!
Onion rings! Please just keep them coming!
Nice spot, especially on the patio. Food is good, especially if you like oysters and lobster and burgers.
Love this place. My first time with the patio open. The Saugatuck area is getting busier and attracting more people all the time. It is fun to dine here and the food is delicious.
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!
Went for Father’s Day with family of 6 and had an amazing time! Great service, delicious brunch and lunch options, and overall happy and satisfied crowd!
Enjoyed the food and the service was great. Price was ridiculously high.
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.
Love the place! Great food, broad menu and reasonable prices.
Great food. Loved the atmosphere, if not a little chaotic. Sitting outside would be ideal.
Food was excellent. Service not so much, however, manager took care of our apps and brought us shrimp cocktail on the house until our food finally came out.
Very cute concept from owners of Match
Awesome lobster rolls. Service was terrific. Love the versatility of the menu.
Delicious food, nice people
If delicious perfectly prepared food is what you are looking for, in a casual but attractive location...this is your place. Great salads and desserts as well. Never disappoints.
Cute place, great menu, nice service. Chairs are tiny and uncomfortable. Other than that it was a fun little spot for dinner.
Great concept. Very good service. Everyone in family, young and old, ordered their favorite foods.
Food was okay- served cold (burgers and fries both), and taste wise, just normal. Won't probably come back.
A great casual place. Amazing burgers, lobster rolls, salads. You can't go wrong. Especially nice on a warm day/night to eat outside. Have a drink prior at the Whelk across the street.
