    I love seafood, and the seafood here was great! My family ordered calamari, a large lobster, and a shrimp dish to share. The shrimp and calamari were well seasoned, and the lobster was fresh. We had to wait quite a while to receive everything we ordered, however, since they had run out of what we had ordered and had to make more. It was a little bit on the expensive side, but lobster usually is.

    By far the best fish market in the city. Fantastic selection of fresh fish whole or fillet and sashimi grade as well. They also have live lobsters, fresh shellfish and caviar. You can also dine in as they have steamed lobster with drawn butter served in store as well as a sushi bar and oyster bar/raw bar. It’s your one stop for all things from the sea.

    It’s my favorite place in Manhattan. Their lobster is tasty, fresh, and affordable. Also, you don’t need to wait for lobster. Their staffs are quick and helpful. Since they give me gloves and picking tool for lobster, you can eat them without dirty hands. Their lobster fried rice is awesome too!

    No adventure to Chelsea market is complete without a visit to the lobster place. I love the sushi, the oysters, the fish, and the soups in the back. When it’s cool, I get some fresh sourdough from a bakery in the market and the lobster bisque or the bacon scallop soup. Tips - Ask the employees for sample cups find your favorite soup.

    Great boiled lobster, but also very good freshly prepared a la carte sushi bar. Nice soup corner. Vast selection of fresh raw and cooked seafood for takeaway or dine in. Not much seating space. Has gotten a bit pricey over the years and very busy at lunch time, but worth a visit for seafood lovers.

    牡蠣とエリアは、カウンターの紙に欲しい商品の数を記入して店員さんに渡す形式。 右奥にあるロブスタードックやスープは、まずレジで注文して、出来たものを順番に受け取るスタイル。ただしスープはセルフサービスで自分で取る。 お寿司はカウンターだけでなくパックでも売っています。ちゃんと小分けの醤油が付きます。 お寿司は、まぁこんなもんか…という印象。なによりコメが硬すぎる。 ロブスタードックは超美味い、少し塩を振ると旨味が引き立ってきます。 チェルシーマーケットの中でもかなりの人気店。週末はなかなか並んでしまいますが、海鮮を見てテンション上がってビールとロブスター!とか最高です。

    Excellent place to get seafood just like the middle East. They carry all kinds of Mediterranean food including the harder to find red mullet. The folks who work there are super nice & helpful! You won't be disappointed!

    Was easy to pick something to each and order. The food was very very well prepared. A bit pricy if you're conscious about food amount per dollar, but quality is there. Spending 25 here won't make you feel bad. Salmon burger was great, wouldn't recommend the Caesar salad.

    This place has loads of different seafood, that they serve on paper plates and you eat at communal standing tables. They have three different sizes of lobsters, the cheapest starting from around $30 for 2.5 pounds. Since I was by myself, I didn't want a whole lobster, so went for shrimp instead. The portion is $9.95, and it was quite a big portion - around 10+ shrimps! They're still with shell, so messy to eat, but headless. The shrimp were fresh - there were a few where the meat was a bit soft, so not 10/10 fresh. The seasoning was light, so if you like yours very well seasoned you will be disappointed. But for the price, I think it was great value.

    The seafood is so fresh! It makes you feel like you're right on the pier. The lobster roll is so good, get the picnic box and you can get chips, drink, and a cookie. It was a great bite to eat. There is also sushi, sides, and soups.
