Ed's Lobster Bar
Posted by Mr. Picky on 04/22/2007
We ate here, had fried clams and two lobster rolls. The fried clams weren't that good; the best part of a fried clam is the belly, where you actually taste the clam, but at Ed's the bellies were in short supply. It was just a lot of fried breading. The lobster rolls were pretty good but...they were $25 each! That is twice as much as in New England and they weren't twice as good, not even close. Ed's is the type of place where I wouldn't ever go out of my to get to, but if I were in the neighborhood I'd give it another shot.

Looked forward to lunch with my sister at Ed's on a recent trip to nyc. Arrived about 1:15 and the place was hopping including the counter. Ordered from the blackboard including a fresh cod sandwich. Was told they were out of it - at 1:15? Meanwhile they left the item on the board for the duration of our lunch even though other customers ordered it as well only to be disappointed. Wait staff seemed to be in a daze - pleasant when you could get their attention. As for the food - excellent salad; a bowl of new england clam chowder which had a wonderful taste and texture but the clams were out for lunch I guess since not a one made an appearance in our bowl; lobster roll was plentiful, fresh, fresh but would have benefitted from just a bit of finely chopped celery, scallions or whatever to give it a little bit of pop. All in all a satisfying lunch but cannot compete with the Pearl Oyster.

My husband and I are from Pittsburgh and Ed's was recommended - we enjoyed ourselves very much. Lobster was excellent so were fresh cut fries and Ed's pickles! Wine was a good pour. We didn't wait at all but we were there at 5 pm to get a jump on the crowd and we no sooner sat down then there was a line out the door! Value was great too. Sat at the bar and service was excellent! We'd definitely go back here!

Just go to Ed's Lobstser Bar and your save yourself a long drive to Maine. I so enjoyed the raw sampler, fried oysters. and lobster rolls! The service was terrific. The desserts were fabulous, too. I can't wait to go back! Kudos to Chef Ed for bringing Maine to NYC and just in time for spring.

I drag my husband to every new restaurant bragging about it's lobster roll in NYC. He can't quite understand the lengths to which my brother and I will go to for a good lobster roll. Ed's currently has my vote as the Best Lobster Roll in NYC. I've tried them all and for years swore by the Pearl Oyster Bar. Ed's was just as good if not better and the fries and price sealed the deal. The shoestring fries at Pearly are too messy and difficult to eat. Everything about Ed's was great, especially the very short wait for a table. They even accomodated my 5 week old daughter without any attitude.

I ate here last night and the food was EXCELLENT. I lived in New England for a few years and I must say, the lobster roll was the best I've had in years - it might be the best I've ever had! The friend oysters were yummy as well. I would definitely recommend this place to all who love seafood! (-:
