Had the best lobster roll ever here. Ordered the seasonal and it did not disappoint with the chunky tasty pieces of lobster, avocado and bacon bits. More surprisingly was the crab manhattan soup which was delicious but even mores as a dip for the fresh potato chips that accompanied the lobster roll. My kids had the grilled cheese which was decent for $5; the bread was fresh and it came with a side of fresh potato chips. That being said, it was quite pricey coming in at $25 per roll. Definitely not a regular lunch stop but definitely worth going to every so often when you need a fix.

Went here on Saturday evening. Line out the door and took a few minutes to find parking but got lucky as someone pulled out. Stood in like for about 20 minutes. Order at counter , pay then find seat with number. If you have big group should have most go to open table to hold while ordering. Service was quick after order maybe 7 minutes. The food was very good I had lobster and the soup as it was a special that day. Actually liked the soup better as I am not overly a lobster person. But it was good, they should give a little more butter.

Came here on the advice of a colleague. It's a restaurant close to the airport in an industrial area. But this place gets busy. I had to queue a good 5 minutes before I was served. There are both indoor and outdoor seating areas on benches.

The lobsters are kept in a tank inside the restaurant.

I ordered a lobster roll with avocado and lobster chowder. The chowder was creamy and tasted great. The lobster roll came with thick crisps and coleslaw

Thoroughly recommend. Would come more often it wasn't so expensive

The market and eater is an informal place to duke it out with your favorite crustacean (and/or mollusk!), mano-a-mano, as it should rightfully be, to do justice to the food. We have been going for years! The staff are lively and efficient. My only lament is their very limited selection of obscure drinks. I suppose it may be their way of supporting some start-up beverage companies. But, I'd really love for them to have a better selection. It enhances the meal.
