As good as New England. Raw bar, lobster rolls and chowder just minutes from San Francisco Hyatt Regency in Burlingame. Picnic tables and cold beer too. Need I say more.

Love this place we always plan our flights out of SFO so we can have our fill of lobster! The lobster chowder is delicious and so are the lobster rolls.

Saw the other TA reviews and was staying nearby so decided to try it. Am very familiar with Maine lobster and this place is good. Got a Lobster Roll and it was great! Place is popular so be prepared to wait...

Do yourself a favour and have lunch at The New England Lobster Market Eatery. Tried quite a few different dishes but think The Sampler is the best value. Truly delicious. Very good service. Look forward to our next visit.

Description
New England Lobster Market & Eatery is an authentic east coast seafood experience in the San Francisco area. We started in the wholesale business delivering quality seafood at a great value and took that experience to serve customers at our restaurant. Whether you're shopping at the market or grabbing a meal at the eatery, when you visit you'll discover live Maine lobsters, Dungeness crabs, mussels and more. Diners at our restaurant love the dressed lobster rolls, lobster corn chowder and crab nachos. We welcome families and can accommodate business group and parties in our space. We also serve beer, wine and champagne to complement your meal. As long-time merchants in the wholesale shellfish business, we are able to consistently delight our customers with great prices and superb products. We promise you won't find an experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area! Eatery Hours: 11am-9pm daily
