We were staying in the Westin SFO the night before our flight, wanted close-by food (Westin grill was closed, take-out/pick-up only). Quick walk and boom, this welcoming and sort of “warehouse-y” shellfish place is right there. You order&pay entirely via app, they bring the food...- I had the lobster tails w/ drawn butter, Cole Slaw, chips; would have preferred the lobster hotter but overall good. My partner had lobster nachos, also not very warm, but tasty. $80 total for dinner (included a beer&sparkling wine&18% tip). We left satisfied and glad for decent food in what is probably something of a “food desert” right by the airport.More

If you can't make it to Maine, this is a terrific option for an authentic lobster roll. Easy to go service during Covid.

You must eat lunch or dinner at the New England lobster House in Brisbane. This is the most covid-19 safety conscious restaurant I've seen in the Western United States. And of course the crab and lobster is the best in the world. They've done away...with the counter ordering and waiting. They seat you at a table, you scan the barcode to pull up the menu on your phone, and you place your order and pay online. 1 minute 30 seconds later, crab and lobster rolls show up at your table. If you are one of the 13 people left on the planet with a flip phone, they will provide you a tablet to order. This place is walking distance from the San Francisco International Airport. if you're traveling through San Francisco, and you've got a flight connection that's four hours or more, I recommend grabbing an Uber in coming to this place. Warning: It's expensive.More

This place is off the beaten path with parking off the side of the restaurant available. There is nice outdoor seating. They come out to take the orders if you don't have a smartphone. Lobster roll with butter had perfectly, plentiful picked lobster meat in...it. A nice portion of drawn butter, coleslaw, and chips as accompaniments. The only thing odd was that the lobster was cold so the drawn butter congeals. The lobster corn chowder was a bit weird for me, a bit more like a bisque than a chowder.More

This place is so great! We had to visit the airport and looked for a casual place. This is a really cool trip to New England. There was plenty of parking and lots of outside seating that was COVID compliant. It was very casual, tables...were spaced well and you ordered through the QR Code on the table. First time that I have done the code ordering and it was amazingly efficient. I just punched in my order, paid by Credit card and the food appeared without delay! We had the Side Salad $10.95 - large portion and had to take some of it home - Twin tails with chips, slaw and sides of butter and lemon $24.95 for the tails and .25 for each of the sides of butter and lemon. The lobster was perfectly cooked, the chips were great everything was really good. If you have a long layover in SFO this is a treat to come and spend a meal in the area. Highly recommend and will definitely return - it was a really fun afternoon!More

Tried the sampler and the twin lobster tails along with a bowl of lobster corn chowder. Melted butter and spicy mayo to dip. Easy order, fast service, good food!

Food was outstanding and came out within 5 minutes of our order. Had to figure out how to order with no help and after eating, when we decided to check out the market, we were shooed away and told, "the entrance to the restaurant is...over there" by some rude little man. Forgot about ordering anything and left.More

Bought the $19.96 special via Uber eats. Cost was then $25.00 each plus tip & delivery. A surprise. And there was no coleslaw or bread. Total was over $60.00. Have dined there over a hundred times & always good...
