Fresh Maine Lobster In Burlingame

New England Lobster

When you’re craving great lobster, you don’t have to go all the way to New England. Just go to New England Lobster Market & Eatery in Burlingame, where you can feast on fresh Maine lobster and Dungeness crab.

Right now they’re celebrating the holiday season with Ugly Sweater Tuesdays. Just come in on a Tuesday wearing your ugliest sweater (you know which one we’re talking about) and get a free cup of soup!

Of course, whether you want a classic lobster roll or a lobster platter, lobster corn chowder or the lobster tacos, you can get your crustaceans any way you want. One of the most popular plates is the 1.25-pound lobster platter with chips, coleslaw, bread and butter.

But if you want a bigger lobster, you can get that, too. If you want a three-pounder, they can do that. Or five, or even 10? Whatever size lobster you want to eat, they’ll grab it fresh out of the tank and cook it up for you.

“Nobody else can do that,” said Danny Rosa, manager and director of marketing for the restaurant.

In addition to lobster, the restaurant has a host of other seafood offerings, including crab sandwiches, crab nachos, shrimp or fish tacos, and both oysters and clams on the half shell.

But just because it serves up delicious seafood doesn’t mean it’s all fancy. Hearkening to classic New England lobster shacks, New England Lobster Market & Eatery is a casual spot where diners order at the counter and enjoy their meals at picnic tables. Grab a craft beer or soda or a glass of wine to enjoy with your food, then top off the East Coast experience 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 enjoy $1 off beers and glasses of wine along with great deals on lobster claws, lobster corn chowder and other items.

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