Came across this place since we spent the late afternoon on the beach. Great find. Surprisingly better than we expected. We had the 1 kg worth of lobsters, bbq, fries, ragu pasta, clam chowder, and spicy noodle with lobster and abalone. All delicious. Highly recommend.

We traveled her for the weekend and wanted some good seafood. The lobster came out uncleaned no seasoning or butter had a weird taste and had me questioning whether or not I even like lobster.. I do in fact love lobster but I’m not sure...what kind of lobster this was. One of our members got the pasta with “Italian Sausage” but it was literally a hot dog and noodles. Worst food experience I’ve had in Korea after 2 years of living here. Would not recommend. 0/10More

This is a small kind of lobster bar in a larger complex near the seafront. The interior is very simple but with comfortable seating. The main attraction are the lobster dishes which are freshly prepared and offer real value for money. There are several other...dishes for very low prices too. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly with the lady who owns the restaurant doing all herself. I was more than happy for what I got for my money and will surely return.More

This small restaurant is located near the beach but not in the center of Huaendae. The boss is doing everything by herself. Welcoming guests, serving and cooking. With a group of 12 we were quite Impressed by the quality of food and the fast delivery...of meals. She first showed us the lobster alive before cooking and asked us to confirm our order. Everything was perfect and not so expensive for lobsters. For 3 people : 1kg of lobsters, +ribs+chicken wings and French fries, we paies 89'000 WonMore

We had the lobster grill (fresh lobster, chicken wings, ribs, fries and garlic bread) and garlic shrimp. The whole lot cost about 80,000W (£60) including two beers. It is the single best seafood I’ve ever eaten. End of. Period. The owner (greeter and chef) is...a friendly delight. The beer is draught. Go here now and snarf yourself some of the best surf-n-turf. My partner is mildly allergic to shellfish and I’m pescatarian so between us we licked the platter clean!More

Tasty food, though at the higher price end. There was only one staff member working- very friendly and polite.

The food is really good. My family ordered the Combo set which had everthing you can ask for; good bbq briskets, bbq chicken, and the lobster. Oh. My. God. The lobsters are FANTASTIC. They're caught and cooked live. The seasoning is just right and goes...really well both by itself and with the garlic butter dip. 10/10 if I come back to Busan, I'm coming back to this restaurant. Definitely.More

Delicious!!! Menu seems to change fairly regularly but the food was great! We ate the Mac n cheese, and the lobster combo platter (lobster, bbq, wings, & French fries). That was more than enough food for my husband, son, and I. So good!

My friends and I were planning on visiting Lobster Lab for months. We finally got the opportunity to go this weekend. In the end it was a huge disappointment. After we gave our food and drink order we waited 30 minutes before the staff decided...to let us know that they were sold out of lobster rolls. They did not offer any type of discount to accommodate for wasting our time so we left. Would not recommend.More

Nice cozy restaurant along Haeundae beach with a welcoming atmosphere. Considering it was a 1 kg lobster and freshly scooped from the tank, the price was reasonable. We got the set with fries, ribs, buns, and barbecued pork. Delicious!

There are great restaurants in Busan. I enjoyed the casual atmosphere of Lobster Lab but the food was a bit uninspired. It was good and is nicely priced for Lobster. Service was attentive and friendly.

Small place by Hun-dae beach. Not fancy place. But service was very good, waiter can speak quite ok English. Lobster was very fresh(you choose an alive one) and good. Price vs quality it was a very good experience!

Tried out the sets and individual lobster rolls. Every well prepared and really value for money, compared to what we pay in Singapore. It's a small place but great. On weekends it can get quite crowded so get there early. Kudos to owner Yeom Soo...Kyung. Keep it up🤗More
