The real deal! Fresh yummy seafood delivered on a red plastic tray, sofa and water in the cooler. Sit inside on picnic tables or outside some have umbrellas. Not cheap but fast and yummy.

Bob has the best Lobster Chowder! If you have never tried Lobster chowder, try it here! It is delicious.

Fishermen's Platter one of the best I have ever had. Fish and Chips was also good, more than enough. Lobster roll was good. Friendly staff, and rather quick order to delivery time frame.

Whole belly fried clams are Massachusetts' contribution to the world's finest dishes. You aren't a New England if you don't love fried clams, and you haven't visited New England--no matter how many times you've been here--until you've downed a box or two. Bob Lobster has great fried clams. The fried shrimp and onions rings are superb, too. The batter is light and crunchy, and the onions are the "string" variety. You have your choice of "regular" or dill pickle tartar sauce. My choice is one of each. There are shaded and full sun picnic tables outside (your view is the parking lot or the estuary), and inside there is a small room with tables and chairs. Place your order at the counter and a cheerful staff member brings you your food the minute it's ready. They serve Richardson's ice cream--beloved in the Merrimack Valley--for dessert. Bob Lobster is the real thing, a true New England clam shack.

Stumbled upon this place on the way back from Newburyport beach, what's better then fried food after a day at the beach!?? The staff were great and the food was exactly what I expected BUT after a day lying in the heat the last thing anyone wants is to use a hot sweltering porta potty when they need the bathroom. Bob lobster you need to build a real bathroom because after using a porta potty last thing I want to do is eat.
