Lobsterfest in San Pedro???

  • b

Anyone ever been? Since I just had "fried Lobster" in Baja, (in Beef lard??!) See more on this topic onthe California Board...I figured some "healthier" steamed Lobster might get me through my craving- sans butter...

Anything for kids to do at Lobsterfest,one of my twin girls is a vegetarian, and is not too keen on eating most animal protein. (And she's only 7! ) What a healthy chowhound she'll be when she gets older! I didn't start staying away from all red meat until I was 35!

  1. I went two years ago. I wasn't really impressed and there was a long line for the lobsters. They did have a bunch of other food vendors there too, which was pretty good. The lobsters were pretty good though, as was the other food. I believe there was a bunch of activities and little craft shops that I think kids would enjoy, there were a lot of families there.

      What's the address of Lobsterfest?

          I gotta put in a good word for lobsterfest. Long lines? Yeah, sure. Lobster's good, though, and relatively cheap, as I recall. And its fun. By the book street fair booths and entertainment, but fun. Its located at Ports O Call at the end of 7th St. in San Pedro. Ports O Call is a down-at-the-heels shopping place, that I used to go to as a kid. Hounds should frequent the place any weekend because of the fish market, and their semi-famous Mountain O'Shrimp, but I'm rambling. Lobsterfest is o.k. by me, and o.k. by my girlfriend - she's from Maine.

      Just for future, when we've gone to Lobster Village down in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, you can request to have the lobster steamed. We've had it both ways. I still like to have it deep fried sometimes though. I can't remember the name of the place we go to, but there are paper lobsters stapled to the ceiling and walls that have been signed by patrons of the restaurant. You get about 5 or 6 halves of lobster, tortillas, rice, beans, guacamole and a shot of tequila for $13. Oh the life.
