it's so delicious - and it doesn't matter how nasty the place looks! no servers but the cashiers could crack a smile and make you feel as though they care!

The rolls are much more consistently tasty here than other places I've tried in the neighborhood and they are a generous size that is chock full of seafood -- the lobster being my personal favorite. The clam chowder is not so consistent and can be too salty for my taste sometimes but it too is full of seafood. The simple menu with the kettle chips and root sodas makes for perfect summer fare memories of my childhood... only better.

Okay, I came here for lunch and ordered the Taste of Maine. While it tasted good, each half-roll was about the size of an underfed 2-year-old's fist. And we're talking about a severely scrawny kid suffering from malnutrition here. All three half-rolls fit in a paper dish that just about fits a single lobster roll at other establishments. Lasted two-bites. Max. Seriously underwhelming here for the cost. I've had better at The Lobster Place for about the same price.

This is the real deal, and it's phenomenal. I've been waiting a couple of decades for a place in Manhattan that could match my childhood memories of summers in New England. This is it. Superb food served by warm, gracious staff. Excellent in every way.

$20 min Are you kidding? The lobster roll special,which everyone goes there for comes to $17.1). I might be extreme but little things like this are a major turn off (basic restaurant management)and I will not be going there anymore

Delicious rolls and really friendly & easygoing staff. Place is tiny, so don't expect great comfort, but totally worth it for a quick bite on your way somewhere.

okay they are good lobster rolls, meaning filled with big chunks of lobster claw meat, excellent presentation, and simple. But the lobster is clearly thawed and not as flavorful as fresh cooked lobster... its kind of pricy but gotta realize we are in NYC and not roadside Maine. Delivery is slower but reliable and it arrives well packaged and cared for.
