Kind of off the beaten path but well worth it. Fresh seafood family style seating in and outside. Lobster roll was worthy of the trip alone. I would go again in a heartbeat if in the area.

The location is near the airport and very industrial. You'd expect to find an auto body shop instead this place offers great choices. Lobster rolls, crab soup, clams , etc.

Description
New England Lobster Market & Eatery is an authentic east coast seafood experience in the San Francisco area. We started in the wholesale business delivering quality seafood at a great value and took that experience to serve customers at our restaurant. Whether you're shopping at the market or grabbing a meal at the eatery, when you visit you'll discover live Maine lobsters, Dungeness crabs, mussels and more. Diners at our restaurant love the dressed lobster rolls, lobster corn chowder and crab nachos. We welcome families and can accommodate business group and parties in our space. We also serve beer, wine and champagne to complement your meal. As long-time merchants in the wholesale shellfish business, we are able to consistently delight our customers with great prices and superb products. We promise you won't find an experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area! Eatery Hours: 11am-9pm daily
