    My wife and I loved the mocktail she had and I absolutely enjoyed my lobster roll, especially knowing it was WA caught western rock lobster. Sustainable seafood and so tasty. Loved it.

    This is a lovely little space with limited tables, perfect for those that don't like big noisy restaurants. The food was lovely (Lobster, what's not to like?) and the waiter funny and attentive. Will definitely go back.

    Lobster was over cooked and rubbery - very difficult to get out of the shell and garlic butter was nonexistent. Pumpkin salad was nice but too much sauce on pasta salad and corn salsa very watery. Host was pleasant Disappointing experience- unfortunately would not return

    Sadly, this was not the experience we had hoped for. The service was good with Staff being attentive and polite and accepted constructive criticism. Unfortunately, the lobster was mushy and had no taste. Sadly, I will not be able to recommend this place to anyone and we love lobster!

    Although i booked for 4 people they did not have my reservation. So they had to ask somebody to move so they could rearrange the table. The briosch roll was burnt and it was soggy in the middle.

    This was our second visit to the Lobster Pier, however this time was a bit of a disappointment - I made a booking through a voucher and upon arrival we asked to get the Roll first but received our whole meal within minutes of arriving.- I am not sure if it was because we had a voucher but unfortunately the lobster was very dry and we could not taste any butter sauce on it. As for the lobster roll - I am not sure what seafood was meant to be in it but my husband and I were both disappointed as there was literally hardly anything in it and it was also so dry that my husband left some of his roll which was unusual for him to say the least. It almost felt that because we had a voucher with a discount it was as though our meal was ready and waiting for us.

    this is a small restaurant with a compact menu based on lobster and seafood. Serves are generous, there are tasty seafood rolls served in a tastier than usual brioche bun, and affordable lobster which was delicious but slightly overcooked. Service was friendly and efficient, as there were 2 front staff for only 4 tables while we were there.

    Very attentive and efficient service. The lobster could have had more butter sauce - perhaps provide an extra pot on the side. A sharper knife is required to cut the lobster out of its shell.

    Our Calamari stack was tender but needed to be hotter it was only Luke warm and the seafood roll was very disappointing with minimal Seafood this was very obvious as 2 other customers had them and theirs was brimming , we were using a Voucher they were not. The service was very good.

    Staff very attentive and prompt. Enjoyed the mocktail. Sides were enjoyable but the Star of the meal The Lobster was over cooked and dry. had to use both hands to remove the meat from the shell as it was that dry. Staff did offer a 10% discount on next visit!

    Very difficult to find this very small venue. No license and no BYO

    The Lobster PierResponded on May 17, 2021Hi ChrisN, We're really sorry about the lack of visibility but rest assured that we are in midst of setting up an alfresco dining area by the end of the year. With that, we would have much better visibility from the main road. With regard to BYO, our application for a liquor license is still pending and we seek your kind understanding on that. For restaurant license, rest assured that we have one that is on display at the counter. Thank you for your kind understanding. The Lobster Pier

    A cosy, comfortable restaurant. I was surprised at how few people it seats but this meant the service was good. We enjoyed the food we ordered on a voucher, it was tasty and promptly served. Access to toilets was a problem with access through another business next door.

    Wonderful, friendly, experienced wait staff. Truffle and Cajun fries were lovely. Unfortunately, the lobsters are frozen and my lobster was overcooked and my partner's was not fresh. The staff took my partner's off the bill and even gave me a cheesecake to celebrate my birthday. A lovely place if you are not particular about fresh lobster.
