Okay, so first off this place is definitely not in the "$30 and under" category unless you're limiting yourself to water and an appetizer. Even the cheapest entree that includes some protein clocks in at close to $30. If you're eating dinner and planning to leave a tip, your meal for one is not going to be less than $30.
A more realistic representation of pricing: dishes are a-la-carte and portion sizes are not especially large, so you're likely to want to get one or two items from the secondary menu categories in addition to your entree. It's fancy, so you're probably going to get a drink, too. Most entrees were like $35 to $50. Getting chicken? Expect $25-$30. I'd venture to guess that the average person drops $45 on their entree, with pricier combos pushing $100. Add in a drink (~$12), a starter (~$17), a soup, salad, or dessert (~$10), and you're probably going to spend $75+ per person. It's good food, and I'm not saying it's not worth the price, but it's a $30 meal the way that McDonald's is $1 meal if you order off the dollar menu.
That said, the atmosphere was nice and the food was consistently quite good. This is a great venue for special occasions. Mixed drinks were so-so -- I'd recommend well drinks or wine. I arrived too late to take advantage of the view (the windows reflect the interior when it's dark out), so keep that in mind if you're planning dinner here, especially in the drearier parts of the year. Service was serviceable, but not amazing.
In summary, this is a great choice for fresh seafood and a solid one for dinner along most dimensions, provided you're happy to splurge on it.
food was excellent, service was flawless and of course you can't beat the view
Our dinner was very good but it was so very cold in the restaurant that we couldn’t enjoy ourselves. We normally
Linger and have several drinks but we were so miserable that we just scarfed down our food and left.
Nice work by the entire staff. The restaurant was clean, food was very good and the service was amazing. Diane was our server and she made our night memorable.
We will be back for sure!
The food tasted ok, not great. Got grilled Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab. The fish was cooked perfectly but tasted no crab, only too much cream cheese. The broccolini was delicious. The lobster bisque was good but it would have been nice to have a little whole lobster in/on top of the bowl to round it out. The clam chowder was also good but a tad salty. The caesar salad was so overdressed that the lettuce seemed wilted.
We arrived at 7:45 and were told that the kitchen closed at 8:00 so we had to order quickly. Service was fast but felt rushed.
From gentleman who sat us was so delightful, he had us laughing from the moment we walked in.The service was amazing, he was very attentive, he’s timing on serving our appetizer to the lobster bisque and our entree was on point. The food is amazing, the lobster bisque we highly recommend, lobster carbonara was perfection and the Maine lobster was 100!
Amazing experience as always!
Our waiter was superb. The whole restaurant was very clean and very well arranged according to Covid19 standards. My only suggestion would be to wipe down door handles and stair rails very frequently. We had such an enjoyable time which we needed in this difficult time. Thank You!
First real outing with clients and this was an amazing place! Staff and quality were fantastic and we all felt very safe.
Food and service was outstanding!
Would recommend updating your web site which still lists the twilight menu. We chose the restaurant based on that availability given it was a group meeting after work. We understand that it is challenging with Covid and understand the decision to not offer a twilight menu; it just would have been better to be knowledgeable about that prior to arrival.
Food was amazing. Service was also amazing. The lobster dip itself is worth going back for. Thank You!
Beautiful view of the water and the city lights. The atmosphere is relaxing and sophisticated. The food is absolutely outstanding! Every dish we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was fabulous as well!
Will be back very soon and highly recommend it!
Always great food and customer service at the Lobster Shop. Our families favorite
We sat on the patio with a breathtaking view of Mt Ranier. The device was well and the food yummy. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
We've been coming to Lobster shop for years. Quality has always been good. Service always good. View outstanding. That's why we keep coming back.
I was nervous with covid Lobster shop might close. I'm glad they're still open.
Had the best service and we were running late, and they were able to work us right in. The food was amazing we had 4 different dinners and everyone was impressed with the food. We will start going here more, can not find better service and food.
The food and service were outstanding as usual.
Love this place for a hungry foodie. The Prawn Aglio is a must try....sauce to die for!
Did not disappoint. Excellent food combined with superior service!
Great food, great service, great view. They did a great job with the COVID restrictions too.
Loved it! Had such a great experience all around!
Everyone enjoyed their meal- service was great, beautiful restaurant!
Wonderful in every regard
The service was incredible. I had family visiting from out of state and they claimed it was perhaps one of the best meals they ever had. Everything regarding COVID precautions was clearly explained. The meal was great and we had a wonderful time.
We were seated at a window right by the water. Our waitress was very attentive. Food was fresh and cooked to order. Hostesses were pleasant and friendly. Great date night!!
Great place for a romantic dinner. The food is always fresh, hot, and delicious.
We had a great experience for my wife’s birthday dinner.
Wonderful lunch great selection. Very impressed with the portions and sometimes when you order something with lobster you maybe see a tad but we got a lovely selection. We didn’t have a great of service as last time. We went about 3 weeks ago and had such wonderful service it made us want to return. This time was rather aloof never got checked on etc. like the soup was quite cold but no one ever came back to check on us. I know it’s hard right now.
The staff was fantastic and the food was delicious! Thank you so much for making our 22nd Wedding Anniversary that much more memorable!
The restaurant was beautiful. The service was great. The food and drinks were delicious. Would definitely recommend the lavender lemon drop. Can’t wait to go again!
I had the Carbonara. It had definitely set a bit and was way overcooked. The lobster on top was very dry and chewy. My wife had the salmon which was fattier than normal but otherwise okay. The quinoa mixture wasn’t bad, just wasn’t very good and did not pair well with the salmon. The chowder and lobster bisque we had were very good. The blackberry cobbler was quite good as well. Service and ambiance was very nice as usual but for $171 I would have expected better quality food. The food quality and presentation just seemed rushed. We have been there several times and have always raved about the quality. Unfortunately this time was a misstep.
I just want to thank you for such a lovely evening while taking our Mother (84) and our Son (37) out for Birthday dinner. They have celebrated there Birthday, 9/13, together every year and you made it so special this year. The crab, prawns, salmon was cooked to perfection. And the desserts were amazing. Thanks again for helping us create this memory, especially during these difficult times with COVID. Linda Buetow
Great food and creative cocktails. I would recommend the seafood sampler platter as starter.
Great food and service! We were greeted and seated right away. Scallops and Halibut were excellent.
Very slow service, wasn’t happy with the staff, the food was ok but not for the price. I excepted way more for what I was paying..
The food was delicious and the server was very friendly and efficient. I go there every year for my birthday and I think they are getting better every year!
Lobster Shop did an exceptional job maintaining safety and health code regulations due to Covid. Will absolutely go back!! Service was top-notch! The food as always is first-rate as was the wine selection and cocktails!
First time out since, well...everything was very good, with exception of the potato dish served with our filets. Very bland, and unremarkable. Our server (Justin) was very attentive, and left us with a very favorable impression. We love the Lobster Shop, and we’ll be back again soon!
We had a great lunch for our granddaughters birthday. The appetizer platter was perfect for sharing. The Cedar Planked Salmon was beyond delicious and my husband inhaled the scallop special. Our server was very good and the seating was spacious.
Tried outdoor dinning. Muse and quiet. Great to show off to our out of town guests.
