    Former Cape Codder Approves!

    The food here is great especially for the lobsters-duh! my favorite side dish which is really a main course is the linguini w clams sauce-not your mediocre meal but nice with clams in shell. The people here are very nice and accomodating which in itself makes the whole evening pleasant-will definitely keep this as a keeper!!

    fairly decent place, food only OK

    The atmosphere and service were all fine, but the food just wasn't outstanding. It is pretty overpriced considering what you're getting.

    Went on sunday for lunch, eh, not sure I would rush to go back. Caesar salad had very little in the way of taste, a caesar should be zesty, and a few of the lettuce pieces had brown edges, a big no no. After much explanation for how they make the lobster fennel broth for the mussels, it tasted like neither, it just tasted like mussel broth and it needed salt or something, it also didn't come with the promised bread. A clam roll featured 4 fried steamers perched on a greasy flattened hot dog roll which made them look like they were riding a skate board. It was impossible to eat like a sandwich. The fries were soggy. On the plus side, the beer was ice cold and the staff nice. I saw the lobster rolls coming out of the kitchen, they didn't look very packed to me.

    Very Good

    My friend heard about this place, the owner being a former employee of Pearl Oyster Bar, so decided to give it a try. The place is nicely decorated but small and a bit cramped but not horribly so. We started off with mussels which were very good. My friend had the lobster roll and said it was the best she has eaten, I had the very tasty bouillabaisse, which I thought was decently priced at $20.00. All in all I enjoyed it but would not call it fine dining if you are looking for a nice night out, great for lunch or an early dinner. Service was decent, not great, but not bad either.

    Best Lobster Roll in NYC!

    I have been to all the lobster roll places in the city and Ed's wins by a mile! It beats BLT Fish Shack, Pearl and Mary's. I was also happy with the salad and shrimp cocktail The food was outstanding. If Ed's can improve anywhere, it's the service and atmosphere (although I loved the hanging lamps above the bar). I will be back and will bring more friends!

    Better than so-so

    Went here on a Friday night...wait was not bad but service was very hurried and annoyingly inattentive. Fried oysters were good, caesar salad too -- although it lacked a punch (hardly any garlic or anchovies). Linguine with clams was disappointing -- lots of breadcrumbs, not much flavor. In general we were satifisfied but won't be rushing back. Smoked almond sundae should be avoided at all costs. Bring a down jacket in case you get seated in front of the AC vents at the counter.

    I just came back from eating lunch at Ed's. The place is excellent. I split the ceaser's salad with my mother and we each had the lobster roll. I also had a great cider. The price was very fair. Lobster roll was perfect. There waas hardly any mayo and tons of lobster, especially huge lobster knuckle chuncks. The french fries were very good. The seaser was absolutely fantastic. I had not one complaint. The waitress even let me try a beer because I was on the fense about it. They had great choices of wines and beers and it was very crisp and clean. I would not hesitate to go back again. It was on par, if not better, than Mermaid Inn (my former favorite) and Pearl's.
