New England Lobster

Fresh Maine Lobster Right Here

If you love lobster, head down to New England Lobster Market & Eatery in Burlingame, where they can get you the freshest Maine lobster — any way you like it.

Get a classic lobster roll with a quarter-pound of meat and served with housemade chips and coleslaw, or the 1.25-pound lobster platter with chips, coleslaw, bread and butter.

And if you want more lobster than that, they’ve got you covered. You can dream big. Do you want a three-pounder? Or five, or even 10? Whatever size lobster you desire, they’ll grab it out of the tank and cook it up for you.

“No one else can do that,” says restaurant manager Danny Rosa.

A premier supplier of Maine lobsters, Dungeness crab and shellfish locally since 1986, New England Lobster Market does the biggest lobster wholesale and distribution business west of Boston — their facility holds up to 75,000 pounds of the crustaceans. Live lobsters are delivered by air mail from New England on a daily basis, year-round, and they’re never frozen.

New England Lobster Market also offers a host of other seafood dishes, from shrimp Louie and oysters on the half shell to crab nachos, shrimp tacos and crab cake sliders. Yum! You also have to try a bowl of their famous lobster corn chowder.

Reminiscent of traditional New England lobster shacks, New England Lobster is a casual eatery where diners order at the counter and sit at picnic tables to enjoy their crustaceans. Grab a craft beer or soda or a glass of wine to enjoy with your meal, then round out your East Coast experience in Burlingame with a house-made whoopie pie for dessert.

If you like what’s on your plate you should also check out the company’s market, which carries fresh-picked lobster meat, whole cooked lobsters, steamed clams and unique items like lobster-infused olive oil among its many offerings.

Drop by for lunch or dinner, or, better yet, during their happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. when you can take $1 off all wines and beers and enjoy them along with some great little bites like fish tacos and shrimp cocktail.

If you’re looking for a great spot for your next business lunch or private celebration, the restaurant also offers a private room that can seat up to 40 people. Or get your lunch catered to your office. They specialize in individually boxed lunches and they can customize orders to fit your needs.
