the Lobster's rolls

  • k

Has anyone tried the lobster rolls at the Lobster at the Santa Monica Pier? If so how are they and how much does one of them cost? thanks.

  1. They are pretty basic but oh so expensive -- about $18, as I recall, for a simple lobster roll that would cost about $4 in Maine. The lobster was fresh but hardly extraordinary, and the bun was your basic hot dog bun, nothing fancy. But the accompanying shoestring fries with parsley were decent.

    1. I had lunch at The Lobster yesterday and they don't have lobster rolls on the menu. I had a great meal though; my friend and I both started with the spicy crab bisque which satisfied my craving for lobster bisque which is also not on the menu. Then I had the lobster avocado salad which is a generous portion of lobster salad (much like the kind you'd find in a lobster roll) piled atop a half of avocado served on baby lettuces in a champagne vinaigrette. Delicious! My friend had his usual - crab enchiladas, also very good! I love this place and hit it when in town on business, but I too wish they had lobster rolls on the menu.
