    We were surprised to see that the restaurant was redone and it looks great. The lobster was delicious. The service was great. It was a little pricey but when you’re going for lobster that is expected. We will definitely be back. We had a great night.

    The Station House never disappoints! Highly recommend the 2lb Lobster (your server will crack it open for you) and for a lighter appetite, the Lobster Roll is fantastic! Our server Isaiah was fantastic and the bartender was also very friendly. Piano player was a nice bonus.

    Always a special meal. C’mon if you like lobster. Pick the size , 2-3-4-5-6 lb. Indulge in lobster heaven. Miss the rolls and bruschetta.

    We have been to the Station House many times. We had a server who did not take very good care of us. The steamed lobster was tough. The only highlight was the mashed potatoes. We were very disappointed with our experience and will not be returning any time soon.

    Our first time back in a while. Looks like they nicely cleaned up the inside of the restaurant a bit, but what’s going on in the kitchen?? Our drinks were fine, (bartender knows what he/she is doing.) Appetizers were awful. Do not order the fried calamari unless you want a full plate of tentacles and only a few rings… Clams Casino were subpar. Main Courses were passable. Too disappointed to return anytime soon.

    Crab cakes were great, lobster pasta too, steak was severely overcooked and lobster very chewy. For that price point they need to do better. Wouldn’t go back or recommend for more than drinks and an appetizer.

    I’ve been there before. When you go with 6 people the service is much better than it is when, like last evening when it was only two of us. Took forever to get waited on and I had to send my main course back because it was overcooked. So we ate at different times as they delivered her’s and I had to wait for the redo. Nobody, as in management even bothered to come over to our table. We weren’t the only ones that were complaining. Not a good experience

    Station House has changed once again, now no salad with dinner. I am not pleased that they are attempting to be like Ruth Criss of Meat Market. I mean a salad with the house strawberry vinaigrette was a staple of the meal. After they took away the rolls and tomatoes at least you still had salad . Now you have to buy that too. I think for an $85 lobster dinner a salad should be included. You don't need to make it huge a handful , a small side salad but to have to pay for that and now they have special sides at $10 each also I find it kind of upsetting. We have been loyal Station House customers since they opened many many years ago, through several owners and closures. We have always had a good meal, and don't get me wrong the food was good but you can only cut so many costs and expect good results to follow. This is Lantana not Boca and although we did have good food almost $200 for 2 meals an app one side dish and no alcoholic beverages was a stretch . I understand they ha remodeled the place and probably needed to increase the prices and inflation etc but a small salad goes a long way in making the dining experience complete. To charge $14 for a salad that used to be part of a meal seems really Boca to me and not in a good way. Station House has always been a favorite for us , birthday, anniversary , get out of the doghouse meal, but you may be losing some of your charm by trying to be TOO Swanky .

    First timers, lived in the areas entire life. This place is very nice seated right on time. Valet parked, on a rainy night avoided the rain. Waitress was very knowledgeable, gave good advice on food and dessert choices. Must try the snapper Hemingway 10/10! Highly recommend.

    They are not accommodating to patrons who have food restrictions. We wanted wither plain rice (no butter or additions) or a plain baked potato or even something simple like apple sauce. They could not accommodate us here. Also, our waiter was "absent" most of the time and took too long to ask for our order and then bring us our drinks. Perhaps it was because we did not order cocktails. Lastly, the prices for lobster were too high - $85 for a 2-pound lobster. And, I think all the desserts had butter or cream in the. We are very allergic to butter and cream. Why not a non-dairy sherbet? And, no prices here.

    Dinner at The Station House is always a treat! Have a tendency to order the same thing over and over, it never disappoints. The Station House is a really nice place to have a delicious dinner either or a special occasion or just a night out. Of course I've yet to have a whole lobster, their speciality, it is on my list!! The bar staff & servers are top notch!

    We’ve been eating at the station house for 15 years and the last visit they took away the complementary salad, bruschetta and bread. The prices are now much higher for the entrées and a 2 pound lobster is now up to the market price of $85. We came for lobster excited but it turned out it was dry. Unfortunately we will not be returning to our beloved Station house for dinner again

    I read about the Station House and the parking lot was always jamming, so I had to check it out. Very New England feel in the restaurant(except for the giant plastic tree in the bar). Very good, traditional menu. Very fairly priced in these wild times. Good wine by the glass. Lovely bartender. I most certainly will be back!
