The Lobster Shop Restaurant Review

: Enjoy some of the South Bay’s most striking western views across Puget Sound and Commencement Bay at The Lobster Shop. The name might call to mind a funky, eclectic joint, but the intimate dining room will quickly change that image. Head here when there's something to celebrate, when you crave straightforward seafood or simply want to partake in the sumptuous Sunday brunch. The house specialty is piping hot lobster bisque. For entrées, choose among wild Alaskan king salmon, Australian lobster tail, whole Maine lobster, jumbo garlic prawns, Dungeness crab cakes and Alaska weathervane scallops, or opt for a chicken or steak dish. The hearty lunch menu includes seafood, steak sandwiches and salads. A full bar offers everything from cocktails to after-dinner drinks, and there’s a pleasing, affordable wine list too.
