    Any of the lobster rolls, or the crispy oyster roll with a side of fried clam strips. Be sure to wash it all down with a Lobster Bloody Mary (or several), which comes with a whole lobster claw in it. Read more

    Amazing HH with $1 oysters and $4 sliders. If you are dining with the right person I recco an order of fried clam strips and go halvsies on the NE and CT Lob rolls so you get to enjoy each.

    New England or Connecticut Lobster roll, you can't go wrong. Then work your way south to Kent street, follow it all the way to the East River, enter Transmitter Park and enjoy the beautiful view!

    I’ve been there only once for quick lunch. I tried a lobster roll which was very delicious. In general, food was fresh and tasty. Interior was really nice and service was quick and good.

    New England lobster rolls (cold) w/ fries are bomb. Lemon root cocktail tastes like root beer = delicious. Good for groups, day or night. Little far from greenpoint ave G stop, but usually worth it.

    Food is fresh. Everything on the menu is good. Lobster rolls are good. Anything with lobster in it has a ton of lobster. The lobster chowder was oozing with yummy lobster too.

    The lobster roll is on par with the best in the city but being that this is Brooklyn, you get more for your money, with a choice of fries, salad, or chips. And if you ask nicely, watermelon

    Lobster roll and clam chowder for sure. Nice staff. Ask to be seated at their heated patio. Nice view and good food.

    Quality lobster rolls, oyster shooters, fried fish, and more New England classics with a large outdoor space. Happy hour cocktails are a steal.

    Vegans don't fear. Delicious asparagus and boiled potatoes. They have lots of vegan sides. Get the tequila cocktail!

    Happy hour 4-7, get in line and order everything. Their house cocktails are $4, beer $4, sliders (choice of crabcake fried oyster, or lobster), you guessed it $4. Not to mention $1 oysters. Heaven.

    Lobster. Claw. Bloody. Mary. There's not much else to say about this decadent cocktail, which is served in a pint glass with enough accoutrements to sub as a meal. Read more

    The happy hour oysters are great! $1/oyster as of this post date... The Lonely Sailor cocktail was also tasty. Only one piece of lobster in my lobster corn chowder, though.

    Mixed experiences here. Better to dine in. Lobster Mac & cheese is underwhelming. Chicken is surprisingly solid. Lobster Rolls are good but small. Sides are all solid.

    I come here for the not-lobster entrees and they are always on point. The salmon and mahi mahi sandwiches are always fresh and worth every penny.

    Pretty cool place. I wasn't too impressed with the crab cakes. They were a little on the salty side. Popcorn shrimp and drinks were good. My friend enjoyed the lobster dinner.

    Forget lobster. On these chilly nights you need the half roast chicken with mash and gravy. Order a second side of mash if you're hungry. So. Good.

    Lobster salad and my favorite French fries on earth. They're consistently stupid-perfect. Also, oysters and $8 cocktails on a backyard patio.

    Try the New England-style lobster roll, filled with hearty pieces of fresh, tender lobster claw and knuckle meat. A delicious contender in our 2012 Lobster Roll Rumble: Read more

    Came at 3:30 - got to take advantage of the lunch specials AND stuck around for happy hour! Lobster sliders were rad and $1 oysters were delightful.

    Go for the lobster roll unless you feel like having soup and siders, then, go for the clam chowder. Enjoy the backyard!

    Get a lobster roll (duh) but also, pitchers of Lobster Ale and the backyard area. What summers in Greenpoint are for.

    Gotta speak up for both the $1 happy hour oysters and the fried oysters that had a magically juicy center. Lobster roll was great but pricey.

    The fried oysters are great, the marinara sauce for the calamari is actually spicy, and the fish and chips is amazing.

    Bomb lobster roll with bacon and avocado. Those things can't come cheap sadly, but it's worth a visit for a quick meal that doesn't taste like one.

    I've got mixed feelings about this place. Food is AMAZING (just a bit expensive though) but there's always a ton of babies and kids for some reason.

    You are so infinitely stupid if you don't get the lobster roll with the lobster bisque. Seriously, get it and eat it, jerks. So delicious.

    When placing your order, and the kitchen is slammed, tell them you want your appetizers first. Otherwise, you may get your mains before your apps.

    Best lobster rolls in NYC (includes Luke's Lobster). Get the Sweet Tea cocktail, and leave room for thr ice cream sandwich. Holycrap.
