Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went there for a meal and most of us ordered the fish and chips except for my grandson who wanted to try lobster in the worst way. We had to place our order at a counter and seat ourselves. They then called your receipt...# and we had to go back and pick up our food. It seemed like we barely sat down We didn’t care for the batter they put on the fish.....it was like fish sticks My grandson took one bite of the lobster and gagged (end of his lobster wish ) The rest of us got a taste of the lobster but nobody really cared for itMore

Every summer we go to Lobster Deck, our go-to restaurant, especially with guests. I particularly love the lasagna filled with lobster, scallops & shrimp. We are both immuno compromised, so the well ventilated covered street side deck provided us with peace of mind. Parking lot...behind restaurant.More

There was a lineup the whole time we were there and we had to Wait quite awhile for our order. We ordered the onion rings (which were good) and the lobster club. It was lacking lobster. So very disappointed.

Good food in a nice setting and parking is easy. I especially liked that no pets are allowed indoors or out on the patio (how refreshing!).

Group of 13 for a post beach dinner. It is a bit slow service wise but the food is good and it is good value for the money. If you want good value and a relaxed setting this is a great option.

Dropped in for lunch on our way through town. Had many places to choose from and not disappointed at our choice. Service was fast and friendly. Ordered at counter and then brought to our table. We shared the soup. Loved the taste. I had shrimp....They were very good, perfectly cooked. Hubby had lobster roll. He really like the taste of it, not to much mayo. Would drop in again.More

First and last time at this restaurant. If you want good Seafood Chowder, don't go here unless you like 96% potatoes and 4% shrimp. All I could find in the 4% seafood was shrimp. Terrible when you can't get some lobster, clams, mussels, haddock and..._________.More

We'd been here once before years ago, didn't have the opportunity to return until recently. Still just as good as it was and so were the portions . .We had the clam and scallops, fish and chip had a nice crispy coating and captains platter,...all was good and only a short wait for the food. Service was good and friendly, . If You don't like seafood The menu also includes a variety of options , burgers, salads etc... You can eat in or outside tables . We will definitely make an effort to go more often when in the area. Prices are the same as other similar establishments in the surrounding areaMore

My first time here was two weeks ago, my second was yesterday. I will go nowhere else for fried clams/shrimp/scallops. Oh, and I heard the fish is out of this world too....that will be my next trip, that and perhaps the chowder. I give this...restaurant a 10 star rating. Oh, I know the stars only go to 5 but this is the place to go for amazing staff, comfort and exceptional meals and reasonable prices. I can't praise this business high enough! Go experience it for yourselves. I promise you will not be disappointed....nor will you walk away hungry.More

Food was good, but pricey. I think $21.50 for a lobster roll and fries is a bit much, but it is a tourist trap so to be expected. That said the food was fresh and tasty and the fries were fresh cut and perfectly done....The deck is a good spot to people watch while dining. I'd visit a few other places before returning.More

It took them like 2 minutes to bring out my food - assuming they just reheated it? The taste was very average - think fast food. For the amount I paid, I was expecting way more. Later that night (and through the night) I had...a very upset stomach, and that was the only food I had.More

Sorry for your experience. Service was fast as it wasn’t busy. Food was cooked and not reheated. Not sure what you had but our prices are competitive in the area.

Had lunch here while travelling around NB. I really didn't care for the "place your order" then once your number is called you go back and get it. Regardless, that's a small inconvenience. The staff were very friendly. We had the clam platters and thought...they were pretty tasty! There is a lack of seasoning in the batter but a shake of salt fixed that. Liked their Tatar sauce and coleslaw too 😋More

If you’re in search for authentic lobster meals, look no further. Lobster Deck is where it’s at. I’ve taken several family members and friends here during their visit(s) to the East Coast. Friendly staff, quaint restaurant and outstanding food! Prices are respectable and worth the...25 minute drive. Be sure to get the Lobster Poutine.More
