Lobster Roll?

anon646 Jun 30, 2006 01:14 PM

Hello fellow hounds,

I'm here in NYC, and I'm kind of on a quest to try all of the best lobster rolls in the country. I'm going to be in the San Francisco area in the coming weeks, and was thinking if I could get some help with this.

    Thanks again to all the responses! I'm going to carefully plot out these places vs. where I'm staying (which unfortunately I don't know yet...)

      Checkout the Yankee Pier in Larkspur (Marin County). They have a wonderful lobster roll. Every time my East Coast-based mother comes to visit, she insists on eating the lobster roll there, even though lobster is not native to the West Coast!

        Thanks all for your support...I'm hoping I can swing by these places on my trip. Happy hounding!

          I have it on good authority that Woodhouse is adding a lobster roll, if they haven't done so already.

            Woodhouse also is now open for lunch, Monday - Friday. I have no idea why they aren't doing that on weekends. Apologies if this has already been posted.

              Hmm, I was just there last night and the menu read only crab or fried clam. Maybe they will be adding soon?

                When I went the first night they opened, I asked and they said they planned to add it at some point in the future. Guess not yet.

              You will need a car as it is south of SF but Old Port Lobster Shack (http://chowhound.com/topics/show/4450... ) This post contains the address, etc. If you do a search, you'll find even more reports.

              Sea Salt is in Berkeley. I don't know how accessible by public transportation so maybe a car is required here, too.
              2512 San Pablo Ave
              Berkeley CA

              Woodhouse Fish Company, actually IN SF, does crab or fried clam rolls, not lobster, sorry! I wish I could be more help...

                Ah, it appears one can get to OPLS by public transportation: http://chowhound.com/topics/show/305862

                  The 72 or 72R on San Pable on AC Transit will take you right to Sea Salt. yummy Lobster roll!
