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.

I never post reviews but the service was awful. From the get go, the waiter was a bit rude and unfriendly. Asking for our food orders before half our party was asked for a drink order and acting sort of insulted when we said we hadnt looked at the menu yet. Once drinks arrived, he never asked if we wanted more drinks; told us they werent serving one of the drink specials (even though one of the early arriving guests had one at the bar) and snarkily advised us that the apps "come out when they are ready" in response to the one person who ordered a salad and didnt get it until the rest of us were well into our hot appetizers. The main course was brought out before we had all finished the appetizers and no table is big enough for both courses at once. Then, no chance to order dessert or coffee, just a check (with the tip already added) dropped off at the side of the table away from the person who clearly was picking up the tab. Insult to injury was the tip was added because were a party of 6. I do have to say that the burger and lobster roll was really good. I would consider trying it again with the hope that the waiter was just having a bad night and his attitude was not indicative of the rest of the staff.

The music was too loud to hear one another. There were other patrons speaking over the music. I don’t know if was too loud so patrons can adhere to the 1 hr 30 min rule. It did impact the waiter getting our drink order correct and too many times I had to order the same thing. The food was delicious. Portions were good.

I’ve eaten at B&L many times in the past, the food was always good, the service OK.

This time, showed up for a 2:00 PM reservation, sat us and forgot us. 15 minutes after being seated a food server shagged a couple of beers for us. The waitperson never came to the table, She, in fact ignored us. The least the server could have done was to come to our table and say she’s in the weeds, but she didn’t even acknowledge our presence. After 40 minutes, no waitress I left $20 on the table for two “The Beers”. I told the hostess what happened but she and the person doing the seating were apathetic. Too bad because the kitchen knows what it’s doing or did before the pandemic. Ended up going to a local pub for a couple of cold beers, great burgers and attentive service.

The dining room needs a better manager and better trained waitstaff.

Been wanting to try B&L for years and was so happy to FINALLY be able to eat in - tables very well spaced and protected, very, very efficient server and also the bus staff were quick to help to give us a spoon to share the exquisite lobster bisque without having to wait for our waiter. Wonderful overall experience and will return many times - they should bottle their lemon balsamic salad dressing (I dipped my lobster roll in it and it was delicious). A very happy, filling experience.

Great Service, Delicious Food only issue was that we were a party of 12 and they had us seated at 2 round tables. It was a little uncomfortable but we managed to make it work.

The food is consistently good. I had the lobster roll with B&L fries which was tasty. The lobster bisque was also flavorful with a good amount of lobster meat in it. My fellow diner had the London Burger and truffle fries and enjoyed every bite.

Went for lunch/dinner had a 3:30 reservation got there about 15 minutes early abs they took us right in. When ordering they only have a handful of appetizers and entrees when I went to order the lobster snd steak skewer they told me they were out already, out at 3:30 on a Saturday not very good planning. Got the lobster bisque instead it was good not my favorite but not terrible had nice chunks of lobster. Got the beast burger which was lobster on a burger. I know I am picky but was not a fan of the combination. Also burger fell apart had to eat it with knife and fork. I know the city is expensive but for $140 for 2 people I expected more. Menu very small.

Great experience, however since we got the 10’ clock booking they were setting up to close by time we got there. At the ending we kinda felt like we was being rushed out but then again as a employee I’d hate if customers were there and it’s time for me to go, so no problem there.

Took my mom here for a casual Mother’s Day brunch. We both enjoyed the food and cocktails! All of the food was freshly prepared and quite delicious. I enjoyed the “Beast Burger” perfectly cooked burger with lots of tender lobster claw meat on top. They have a nice outdoor street side eating area and the inside dining is pretty well spaced out. Service is a bit uneven (weird waits…got my cocktail after appetizer came out) but all the staff were friendly and pretty attentive. I would definitely come back!
