The Lobster Claw is killing it. The seafood was so fresh and tasty. We have always loved the LC but recently the quality has really improved.

Lobster Claw Inc. did not disappoint! My wife and I shared the captain sized lobster roll and each had a cup of soup. The captain sized roll is actually two good sized rolls. Great food!

If you are celiacs or gluten-free forget eating here as all your he seafood is is breaded and fried. They also have lobster rolls and fish and clam chowders. The dinners were huge portions, plenty large enough to share! Not cheap but not expensive either....More
