Burger & Lobster serves up the best fare from land and sea in its high-ceilinged, wood-furnished establishment. The menu is very simple and is composed of two items - the burger and the lobster, both of which are served with fries and a salad. The burger is a juicy, 10 ounce beef burger topped with bacon and cheese. The lobster comes in two variations - a whole lobster that has been steamed and can also be grilled should you choose, served plain or with luscious lemon garlic butter. You can also order a tender lobster roll with a touch of Japanese mayo, served on a toasted roll. There are plenty of choices for drinks, with an extensive menu devoted to wine, beer and cocktails to pair with your entree.

At Burger & Lobster, quality is key and it has guests returning time and again.

Overall experience at Burger and Lobster was great! We weren’t too happy about having to wait 15 minutes past our 8:15pm reservation time despite getting a text message at 8:04 stating our table was ready but the food and great service from Jacob made up for it! I will definitely return (hopefully with no wait)

I had the Lobster Roll which was ok. My kids had burgers which they said were good. The truffle fries tasted as if they were warmed up. The server & the ambiance was nice

The only reason I cannot give 5star is the receptionists were not friendly, had attitude. But waiter was super nice and had all service! Foods are good as usual and big enough portion.

The food was good, but the service wasn’t to standard. Our server was a bit disorganized; we were seated for about 15 mins before he came over to take our order. He took our food order and forgot to put our drinks order. Also, the server didn’t wear his mask properly; it didn’t cover his nose. I’ve been to Burger and Lobster before and the service was better.

We came out to celebrate my mother’s birthday and it being all of us except one person first time. We truly enjoyed ourselves. It was a little to warm indoors but we made the best of it. Kenneth the mgr was very pleasant. Thank you all for making the luncheon a very special moment.

I had reservations for a weekday mid afternoon with my husband. We waited 15 mins for someone to take our order. The food came Rather quickly and was tasty. But the waiter never returned to check on us, we had to ask another waiter for my drink order that never came and another waiter for the bill. I don’t think i will return.

Not sure what happened with the truffle fries. They were tough, cold, and not good. I should have sent them back. Burger bites didn’t have pickle. Not sure what happened there. Service was very friendly, but forgot many items. Grace was given as they were training someone. Just not the typical burger and lobster experience. Disappointed since I was giving a friend a tour of NYC and this place is a typical stop!!

I’ve been to burger and lobster countless times, but this was the 1st time my lobster was hard to chew.. It was clearly over cook and so was the calamari which also lacked flavor, the lobster bites were delicious and so was my drink (strawberry something off the summer special menu) my friend had the Madison park and loved it as well. Our waiter was very nice and accommodating, we just wish he told us his shift was over and we were being passed on to someone else.

I love burger and lobster. But I was shocked to learn about the changes the made. First if you purchase a big boy there’s no more unlimited fries and salad. Secondly I was charged 40 a pound for a big boy when I clearly saw it was 33 a pound. B&L needs to do a better job at letting the customers know about the fluctuating lobster prices. But I still do love this place

Lobster n Burger has changed since we all were here in 2019.
We were given hot water had to ask for ice?? Had a few different waiters,my lobster roll was cold and lobster pieces were few? For 29.00.

My friend had a whole lobster no utensils had to ask for nut cracker and forks to eat lobster.

Salad was just ok sweet potato fries were good. Coffee was luke warm and had to ask waiter to fill up the cup.

Maybe because of the pandemic this all happen but for sure for all that money 175.00 we won't be back.

This was my first time back to B&L, the host/hostess team were amazing. Our waiter, Luis, was sweet. Sadly, the bar was short staffed and it took 30 minutes for our drinks to come, they were also out of the ingredients to make the passionfruit margarita. The fries were not fresh, golden crisp, and the mixed greens were a bit soggy. Calamari was great. Was a bit disappointed as I was excited to be back. Will try again, later this summer.

Showed up at 5:15PM with a 5:30 reservation. Hostess said “so i don’t have a table for you and i can’t tell you when I’ll have one” (absolute Seinfeld). Seated outside instead in 90 degree heat under the outdoor speaker to the point where we couldn’t hear each other talk. 10 minutes later, waiter comes by, takes order. 10 minutes later again, he comes back with the one beer we ordered, glass already sweating because it had sat there. 10 minutes later, food comes out, one order was wrong. They take it away, and then 15 minutes later after everyone has eaten, the “fixed” order came out. In between then, we had to get our own water twice and ask for cracker utensils- in a lobster joint. And lastly, after all that, they didn’t take the order they screwed up off the bill. STAY AWAY IT WAS TERRIBLE.

Things at "Burger and Lobster" were fine--this is not an exceptional restaurant, but the food was good (it was a chance to have a lobster without much fuss), the service was sprightly, it was noisy but we could hear each other (why have music at a restaurant like this?--only increases the noise level...), and we had a very good time.
