The Lobster House: Something For Any Seafood Lover

Eat well without traveling far.

One of the best things about going to the Jersey Shore is enjoying the fine seafood prepared and served there. Now that the shore has closed up for the season there's even more reason to stop into the brand spanking new Lobster House right here in Freehold. Only open for a few weeks, they also have a thriving location in Staten Island.

When in Rome, do as the Romans and when in the Lobster House it's only logical to eat lobster. Or crab legs. Or scallops. They've got it all, fresh and ready to be eaten. Don't feel left out if you're not a fan of lobsters; they cater to all types of seafood eaters.

The lobster dinner is $15.99 every night but if you come early (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) you can get it for $9.99. At either time, it's a pretty good deal and comes with a healthy helping of side dish.

They have pick-up and catering options or you can eat in their restaurant with warm wood walls and lots of space to sink your hands into some shellfish.

Favorites include Big Franky's crab, raw clams on the half shell, seafood antipasto, Al and Bob's garlic shrimp, crabs with garlic and oil, and tilapia oreganato. Try a dozen raw clams for $6.99 on Monday and Tuesdays (eat in only).

If you want to really take in all the Lobster House has to offer in one visit, try Joe's Special, a big pot of clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp and lobster in white wine garlic sauce.

They're located at 300 Mount's Corner Road in Freehold. Park in front of the and look for the sign. For more information check out the restaurant's Web site.

My wife and I just returned home from the Lobster House in Freehold and it sucked! The Lobster Bisque and New England Clam Chower were anything but. They were apparently from a can. My Fisherman's Feast was not a feast at all, was over fried, and too salty. Then after the meal we waited about 15 minutes for someone to bring our check. Unlike the review I read earlier today Freehold is still lacking a seafood restaurant. The owners need to spend some time in a real sea food restaurant and re-think their goals.

You sure you weren't at the The Lobster House in Cape May? You need to check out Spikes in Point Pleasant or Gregorys on Route 37 in Manchester. I am sure you will be much happier.....

Horrible, if I can save you at least $50.00 for a meal that is not worth it. Canned soup, small portions, lousy food. Service was good at first, but counld not get check for 15 minutes at least and after a bad meal, we wanted to get out of their.

Where do I begin, Ok, we placed our order and got our drinks. When food started coming out it came out in waves. SOme people were eating whiles others were still waiting. Some food was even forgotten. When we asked where it was the waitperson asked if we ordered it.. Umm, we did or we would not be inquiring about it. With a table of 9, more then half of us had greasy food. Some was over done. Shrimp cocktail.. someone got an order of 4 shrimp and it was brought out on a huge dish and the shrimp were small. Someone got a sandwich and it did not taste all that great. Also it should have been made with garlic bread and it was not. No one was given a bib with their lobster order. Fries were good however. Would I go back, no, not at all.

Tried the Lobster House twice, since the first time was a disappointment. The first meal was broiled scallops which I had to send back because they weren't done. The second time was with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. They had no children's menu, so I had to order something she could eat to give her some of my meal. She likes fried fish so I ordered the fish & chips. The fish had a thick batter on it and had no taste at all. My daughter ordered broiled flounder and had to send it back because it had so much garlic (from a jar) on it, she couldn't even eat it. Who puts garlic on broiled flounder? We were so disappointed because we thought there was finally a seafood restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, we'll have to hope that another "good" place will come around.
