Nice birthday celebration for my wife. Great service and good food.
Excellent dining spot. The ambiance was perfect. This was an amazing evening.
Disappointed with halibut. Waitress was amazing.
Wonderful food and great service, all with the spectacular view of the Waterfront.
We had lunch at the Lobster Shop on a Thursday afternoon. The table selection was excellent (other than I am currently hanicapped and it was a long walk). The service was great - not to stuffy for lunch but very competent and friendly and knowledgeable. The food was more than a bit disappointing. I was really looking forward to the Lobster Bisque and it failed badly. The flavor was off and the texture was completely pureed with no hint of Lobster meat or any other ingrediaent. I was looking forward to getting a bowl to go for a late night sanack but passed as I was so disappointed. The crab cake was under cooked and under seasoned. Very bland. The calimari was good but nothing special. The best was the Sweet Chili Prawns. The Prawns rated a 8-9 with flavor and presentation. I will go back but I won't expect a lot anymore. This is not the Lobster Shop of Days gone by.
As usual we had a wonderful dining experience. Great food, great service and wonderful ambience. One of our three favorite restaurants in the world.
Steak, lobster & seafood were just right, Diane was great as our server
I did not receive the award compensation from the restaurant. Does it come later?
The restaurant wasn't crowded, and we were seated right away when we arrived. The table was next to the window, so we could watch the boats and such on the water. Food was great, and the waiter was excellent. He made the experience more enjoyable.
The overall experience was excellent. The food was delicious, service was great. The view was relaxing. We’ll be back!!
We went to the Lobster Shop for our anniversary dinner. Everything was wonderful, we were even entertained by a pod of Orcas going by. Morgan was our server and she was very helpful with the menu and attentive throughout the evening. She even brought us a free fudge sundae for our anniversary celebration. All in all it was a great evening and we will be back.
Most amazing crab cake ever! I highly recommend the peanut butter pie!!!!!
Kyle W was an awesome server really highlighting this dinner. Thanks for the blue cheese olive dirty martini. Food was good and pitched right down the middle. An enjoyable anniversary dinner. Thanks!
Amazing service! Food was uninspiring. Wife and I both agreed the potatoes were instant.
Fabulous food, excellent service. We always enjoy the Lobster Shop and will definitely be back.
Always a pleasure to have dinner here. The view from our window seat was beautiful, we had a corner window. The food was very tasty! We had the Halibut with a side of lobster tails. Our server was very personable and just the right Ab mount of attentiveness. Can’t wait until we go back!
Server was quick, friendly, attentive. Food was delicious (bread, dipping sauce, crab cake, warm seafood salad and lobster melt, cinnamon apricot rum ice cream - all excellent). Views were gorgeous (even saw two porpoises passing by). Atmosphere was peaceful. It was a treat to be there, absolutely delightful.
Great food, great service, and perfect view of the marina. Always enjoyable!
My server Joanna was exceptionally fantastic. Very professional and patient. Joanna knew how to customize my experience and it was effortless
My husband and I had never ate here before. It was well worth the money. Great food and drinks. We enjoyed everything.
The Lobster Shop never disappoints! The food is always good, the service friendly, but not intrusive. The prices are on the high end, but when you can sit down to dinner with a friend or family and be face-to-face with Mr. Rainier, it is worth a bit extra.
If you have a chance to eat here make sure you do it when it’s warm if you are getting a window placement.
EXCELLENT food and service. A little pricey but well worth it.
The food, the service and the view were exceptional.
Great food, excellent service and a view that can’t be beat.
The views were gorgeous. Food was very good. Jodi, our server, was personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. All of her recommendations were on point. The wine menu seems to be WA focused and good. We had a great time.
Alaskan Halibut is amazing. Also got the side crab cake which was melt in your mouth delicious.
Here's my explanation:
My wife and I booked an anniversary dinner, and it was a wonderful experience, all told, but...
I must confess sticker-shock when I saw the menu: 1) Lobster Shop no longer offers "sunset dinner" specials we'd enjoyed in the past, though many waterfront places have continued these, 2) the menu was much more limited than I remember, and 3) items that were offered were much more expensive than I'd seen here– the steak and lobster combo was $80, at least 30% more than I recall.
To be fair, our previous dinners here were pre-COVID, and I am sure that accounts for the change. I know most restaurants have made similar changes, but these seemed somewhat more than others we've experienced.
Having said all that, we ordered anyway, and the food was absolutely excellent, as was the service. We had a lovely anniversary dinner. Sadly, at these prices, it may be another year before we can afford such a splurge. That's the sad part of post-COVID, for restaurants and customers– those of us who used to dine out more regularly have multiple reasons for thinking twice about doing so.
The Lobster Shop has a very nice atmosphere and overall good food. At the same time one needs to take into consideration the menu featured on the website is not up to date. I was disappointed to see a more limited menu in person after being seated for a lunch reservation. It would be nice to know in advance what menu selections really exist.
Service was very attentive although I asked for a cup of the lobster bisque as opposed to a whole bowl. The server said she could accommodate with a cup. I failed to pay attention (my BAD) to the fact I was charged for the bowl and not a cup. Shame on the server too!
Our visit to the Lobster Shop was nice and the view is lovely there. Our service was really exceptional and the food was very good.
The LOBSTER SHOP is FABULOUS!! I used to go to their Dash Point restaurant, which we've been told has now closed. I started going there in the early 80's with my ex and we'd go every yr for our anniversary. Now, with husband #2 we just tried the Tacoma site last night, and it's as good as I remember all those years ago... 5 star. Our server named HONOR was so wonderful as well! It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Took our visiting parents from Ohio there for their 51st Anniversary (was also our 1st time) and everything was phenomenal.
Requested a table on the outside, but was told it was to damp out there so we'd have to dine inside (which is not really safe yet). Five minutes later we watched a couple of women get seated out there: very disappointed since it is the end of Summer and dining outside will be difficult in the next couple of seasons.
Best crab cake I've ever had; unfortunately, the served one crab cake for two people (very strange, never have seen that).
Wonderful table service. I've never left a $40 tip before but she was worth it.
Lobster was very good. Lobster Carbonara was very good too. Combo Louie Salad was very good (blue cheese dressing was wonderful)
Peanut Butter Pie was carried out for desert later in the evening: we would never order that a second time. It tasted like someone tried to make pudding pie: very squishy and was semi melted by the time we got home. Suggest they replace it with Mud Pie (which cannot be carried out) or cheesecake.
The food was great, the waitress was amazing. Will forsure be back again.
Our servers Ashley was great! Knowledgeable of the menu and beverage options. Very friendly and attentive.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Food and drinks are very good, it is pricey, so it’s not a weekly date restaurant but maybe once a month for us. We’ve been here a few times and will return in the future. The only con is they run out of something every time we’ve gone, they come back and let us know and we have to pick something else. So have a first choice, and a back up choice.
Great food and great service. Beautiful view.
Sat in a booth on the deck to enjoy perfect weather. Our server was a joy. Personality plus. The 10 oz lobster tail was done perfectly. The strawberry rhubarb crumble was a delight.
Josh was an excellent server and took great care in making sure our dining experience exceeded expectations.
