Really the best place that we can think of in recent memory that prepare fresh lobster meals anyway you want, even in ways that you've never even though of. Try the Lobster Martini, Lobster Mac 'n' Cheese or Lobster Risotto to sample the culinary magic found here. Maybe even the Stout Marinated Steak Tips which have most recently became our go-to. Eatery and part bar, it's the best of both worlds where you can enjoy high end seafood with a great assortment of drinks too. We love the outdoor tables, so be sure to take advantage of the Salem weather when you can and eat on the patio. We must also mention that when you come on the weekends, you will be treated with some great live music. No extra charge, but all the entertaining benefits for free. There is a reason they are usually booked solid on the weekends, so be sure to arrive early or book ahead to ensure you get the best seat for seafood in the state. Self described as the local dive bar, we'd argue that it's actually a dive bar with a hidden high end class! The casual atmosphere here is second to none and will always greet you with a smile when you arrive. For over 3 decades of service, they have stay true to their original course of highest freshest quality of seafood paired with memorable service and satisfaction. For beer lovers, we highly recommend you sample their long list of locally brewed craft options that we can't get enough of! But again, as the title of the spot makes it clear - it really is all about Lobster here and truly, they prepare it in more ways we ever though was humanly imaginable. Five star service with five star quality.
