Review №4

We needed one more lobster roll before leaving and this was closest place ..comparing to one I had this was not same.. but dry n lacking the butter flavor..also ordered dinner special shrimp scampi which could of used some flavor like maybe more garlic n salt. Very friendly service and other fresh seafood u can buy as well .

Crowded for father's day. Definitely order ahead of time if you can. I arrived and was met with a long line that stood outside social distancing waiting for their name to be called. Food was delicious. We got steamers, lobsters, fries, clam chowder, a little broth and shrimp. It was delicious. Lobsters are excellent quality. Steamers were great, I probably had 2 pounds of steamers. Probably the go to for take out seafood on the south shore.

Review №6

It was exactly what one would imagine buying lobster from a barn would entail. It wasn't THAT bad, the food tasted alright (nothing special), but the $20 lobster roll was anemic. They used the smallest hotdog bun they could find and then couldn't be bothered to even make that tiny piece of bread look abundantly filled.

Review №7

Fantastic food, kind staff members, regularly good mood. They charge fair pricing and the food quality is good. Keep it up.

Review №8

Great food, great price. Portions are good. The best tartar sauce I've had at any seafood place in the area.

Review №9

Had the lobster bisque a few times and was great. This third time I had it I noticed the lobster bisque was not fresh, as if it was made the day before or was sitting outside all day. Tasted very stale. I decided to wait until the next time I order to explain the situation to the manager. I thought as a courtesy they can replace it with a new one but they couldn't do anything for me. I guess it's my fault that I drove all the way there for lobster bisque only to discover it was a bad batch. Will not be going there again unfortunately

Review №10

Lovely Fish n chips, both were very crispy and well done. Fish was soft, juicy and we'll seasoned. I just missed spicy, with fish n chips some spicy elements will bring extra dimensions to the dish. Overall fresh and good food

Review №11

First time in, but my wife has been eating here since she was a kid. Easy to see why it's a family favorite. Got clam plates, a quahog and some haddock nuggets. Everything was *incredible* and the service was excellent. 10/10 will absolutley be back. I want to say this is my new hands down favorite but I still have to try the scallops!

Review №12

Take ordered baked swordfish diner to go was very good fresh food.

Review №13

I used to love this place. I don't know it's because of this fake pandemic or not but it has gone downhill a little. Portions have gotten smaller and prices have gone up.

Review №14

Nice hidden gem. love coming here. seafood the best.

Review №15

I was very disappointed with the lobster roll. Wasn't much meat for $18 and the meat had a weird texture to it. I believe that they use frozen lobster meat. That would explain it. Fries were decent. I'll go back for their fried seafood.

Review №16

I have NEVER had better seafood than Lobster Barn! The tartar sauce is to die for! The staff are super friendly. I love this place!

Review №17

I have loved their seafood for years now ... Like 20 years ... Always amazing n kind

Review №18

Fish n chips good, lobster bisque not so good

Review №19

Love this place for seafood ! Glad back open & haddock plate + bacon wrapped scallops were fantastic :)

Review №20

This place is my number one site. Of all restaurants I know I prefere it most. I always suggests to my friends to go to that place. when I want to go to a good meal, this is the place that comes right away to my mind. extremely good and varied food and a rich cuisine.trained team, and good vibes. In addition to that, the charge is affordable. I suggest this place with no hesitation.

Review №21

We ordered 3 fried clam plates that were delicious. The steam lobster was not worth $22.99. It was extremely dry and no water at all. I contacted them to let them know and was told that this time of year they are dry and no water, but more meat. Very disappointed!!

Review №22

Food here is delicious. It's real food.

Review №23

Good quality mom and pop op...full belly clams were very tasty and very little grit...fresh homemade blueberry bread was not only delicious but also well priced... only draw back is the is a little hard to get in and out especially when they are busy but I guess it could be worse...otherwise would prob be 5 star

Best seafood in the area. Super personal (it's located on the property of the owners) and delicious. They have food prepared to eat and to sell if you want to make it yourself! They definitely know their seafood- I recommend the Haddock Dinner

Scrumptious lobster roll & fixin's. Worth the drive to enjoy great food served in a casual relaxed setting with down-home superb service.

Review №76

My 35$ medium clams were undercooked :(

Review №77

Easy and delicious! This place is definitely a favorite. Looking for classic New England seafood but don't feel like cooking it yourself or head to a crowded restaurant? The Lobster Barn is for you!! Place your order in advance and pick up fresh, steamed lobsters and fried seafood an hour later.

Review №87

Very fresh seafood. Prices are not bad very reasonable. The fish and batter was just right and the desserts they sell are so good. This is a must stop restaurant in Abingdon

Review №88

Lobster roll good but small. Lobster and slaw very heavy on mayonnaise. Take out only.

Review №89

Great folks who provided friendly service. For a seafood place in New England, the prices were surprisingly reasonable. Our group had multiple dishes. The quahog was awesome. Hard to find decent ones. Swing in for a legit roadside seafood shack.

Review №90

Never been crazy about buffet style eating, but my dad with dementia loves it and wanted to go. Food wasn't bad. I just can't get used to people reaching over my food.

Review №91

Great little place to stop by and grab a bite. I was craving fish and chips and found this place. Was not disappointed. Fish was light and flaky, the fries were crispy and hot. I'll definitely stop by here again if I'm ever in the area.

Review №92

Food and prices are good

Review №93

Take out only. Very good food. Lobster rolls were supurb

Review №94

The food was really good and the staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating. Would go back again and would recommend to others that would be comfortable with a picnic style dining experience.

Review №95

Ordered the lazy man lobster and it was just a few crumbs and 2 bits of lobster, I thought it must have fallen out of the container. The girls said no it weighs 1/4lb. What a waste of money.

Review №96

Been getting my lobster here for more that 14 years
