Our Story The Lobster Roll originated in Connecticut and quickly spread in popularity throughout New England. The much debated topic is the “proper” way in which to eat a lobster roll… the original was served with warm butter and lemon juice, while many now serve it cold tossed in mayo and other secret ingredients. How ever you love it, there truly is no wrong way to enjoy a lobster roll! Having grown up in Connecticut and spending summers along the shores of Nantucket we wanted to bring our love for Lobster Rolls and Fresh Seafood to the Low Country. There’s no better way to spend an evening than relaxing on our patio with friends, opening a crisp bottle of white wine, sharing peel & shrimp, and ordering a lobster roll. While we may not be in Nantucket, visiting The Jetty, will transport you there… if only for an hour!

The place is cute and food was good also.
But nobody care about Covid. The place was packed a most people didn’t have masks.
Also it was a Saturday night and some courses were not available.

Very loud and hard to social distance in the small space. Food was really good but super small portion for the price- not a place to get a meal but perhaps ok for just a small appetizer. They did not have any oysters due to delays in shipments.

Cozy spot with lovely, attentive owners. We had the oysters, crab and avocado salad, and tried 2 of the lobster roll styles - quality ingredients prepared deliciously. Can't wait to go back!

Great little off the beaten path restaurant that's run by a great proprietor. Very customer service driven. Has a limited menu but a really good product at a reasonable price.

Amazing little find right next door to our AirBnB at 71 Spring Street. The Connecticut style Lobster Roll was just what the doctor ordered. I loved the oysters and they sent out an ice cream cookie sandwich at the end for our anniversary. Super sweet - loved the patio outside. Will def visit again!

Enjoyed our first visit to this off the beaten path locals spot. Maybe not the best or biggest lobster roll you’ve ever had, but the bun was fresh and the lobster tasty. We’ll definitely go back.

Delicious & plentiful lobster rolls. Our crab salad was way overpriced for the measly portion of crab in it. Neither of us drink & there was not a single non alcoholic option for us. We drank warmish tap water. There should be ice tea or soda or bottled water for this price point menu. Service was great though & atmosphere outside was nice.

The crab, avocado, and grapefruit salad was very good - dressed nicely with a vinaigrette, and sweet, flavorful sections of grapefruit. The truffle lobster roll wasn't very impressive, I had to ask if it WAS the truffle one since I couldn't smell any scent of truffles at all. They brought me some more truffle oil in a ramekin, which helped, and also gave me a use for the roll that was twice the size and amount of lobster. I'd guess it might be a 4 oz serving, on a huge steamed, not grilled or griddled with butter, roll. With kettle chips on the plate, it's a lot of starch with a tiny bit of protein.
The staff is nice, if slightly clueless like asking if I wanted to sit outside, but as a party of 1 I was limited to indoors - which I already knew when I made my reservation online. Then I heard them offer that same table outside, which I already knew was "reserved for a party of 4" and then tell those people they had to eat inside too. I could have told them that in the first place. Not cheap for not the greatest food or atmosphere - the music was way too loud for me, and even though they turned it down without a problem once it got busier it was turned back up. The place needed to be dusted, I could see it accumulated on the windowsills, and the mirror, in the dining room.

Awesome food and service. Tuna tartare, lobster roll, and NC oysters were all excellent.

Love the Decour and atmosphere. Very Nantucket vibe. I have been previously and the food was 100% stellar! This time, they were out of the mignonette vinegar for the raw oysters but regardless it’s hard to beat such a good happy hour deal ($1.50/oyster). Connecticut lobster roll was delicious as usual!
