Lobster dinner in Waltham or close by?

A Japanese colleague of mine is in town and staying in Waltham. He really enjoyed a lobster dinner when he was here a couple of years ago. Is there any place in Waltham or nearby that would be good?

    Does he have a car? Naked Fish has steamed lobster on the menu, although I've personally never had it there. That would be the closest seafood restaurant. Captain Marden's in Wellesley does a great version, but a longer distance away.

      Yes, we both have cars. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Anyone know if Ritceys, on Moody St., still exists?

        I know it doesn't get a lot of love here, but I'd consider Summer Shack at Alewife. The steamed lobster is a good as anywhere (IMO) and the pan roasted lobster is very good. Your colleague might have an enjoyable experience.

            I would respectfully disagree with Summer Shack. I have even had poorly prepared (overcooked) lobster there....you'd think they could at least get lobster right!
