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.
