The lobster rolls are really good. Perfect balance of seasoning and good amount of lobster in them. However be mindful you could eat 3 or 4 for them if your hungry and they are $15 each! Went a couple of times and couldn’t bring myself...More

Ordered the lobster picnic box which had a nice size lobster roll, chips, drink, and cookie. The lobster roll was absolutely delicious. Lemonade included was very good. This is a very busy place. You can stand and eat your food there. Staff were friendly.

situated in the lively Chelsea Market, this fish market offers very fresh seafood. We had a sampler of lobster, crab and fish burgers: all of them very tasteful. But you can also go for a whole lobster, king crab, ....A must.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
