One of my favorite meals is lobster. And when you throw it in a super soft roll,.. well what else needs to be said! They're great! And even though there's a closer one in Coronado, I prefer this one. The shop is small with only a few tables. But you get to walk around all the cute shops afterwards. I usually get the lobster roll with extra meat, and warm it up. It's delicious this way. The bisque is pretty good. And they do have specials every once in a while, so sign up for their emails.

Have had great lobster rolls all over Maine, Rhode Island and in Boston. Lobster West is right there..and there's MORE; crab, shrimp and scallop rolls. Last time ordered the crab rolls with green onion and avocado. Warm, crisp, buttery split bun PACKED with crab. And it's crab, all crab...NOT full of mayo and fillers. We also split the lobster grilled cheese with havarti and bits of red bell pepper...absolutely AMAZING!. And did we talk about the soups? Clam chowder, lobster bisque and Maryland crab. Check out the menu...all good. Take out and Grubhub available.

When you do things right, you succeed! Lobster West does it right. It’s not easy to bring in fresh lobster from 3,000 miles away. Their fresh New England lobster roll is as good as anything you will get on the Maine coast. They go out of their way to bake a special roll, when most places don’t. It’s these little things that matter and that’s why Lobster West is still successful, when other food places have gone out.

Lobster rolls are unique and full of fresh lobster. Unique local crafted sodas. Clam chowder very good. Staff friendly.
