We went to visit my sister and brother in-law in WA and they took us here for a really nice dinner. The food was amazing, the atmosphere is beyond wonderful, especially when you sit out on the deck patio and watch the sunset while you enjoy a great meal. We had a delicious bottle of spanish wine with our meal, it was perfect. The fact that it started to rain towards the end of our dinner just added to the experience! We all just laughed and continued to enjoy our wine as everyone frantically ran inside! I hope the next time we visit we can go back! Delicious!

Lobster is so good. So of course I go to the Lobster shop! I love the lighting and atmosphere there, Their cheese biscuits are the best and they are reasonably priced.

The Lobster shop is a very nice restuarant with amazing food. The couple of times I have been there I have not been disappointed. I like to sit out on the deck when it is nice out. They have a really good view of the sound. If you want a good dinner save up and go to the Lobster shop.

This is the best restaurant I have ever been to. The service is great, and everyone is alwyas on top of things. The food selection is excellent. I would especially reccomend the appetizer crab dip. The view is gorgeous and nothing beats it. The food is also reasonably price considering everything is so perfect here. If youre looking for a great place to spend a romantic evening, or for a celebration, the Lobster Shop is the place to go. Also check out the Lobster Shop at Dash Point, Tanglewood Grill in Gig Harbor, and Rudy's in Tacoma.

Cons: NONE. this is the best restaurant ever

Wait staff is very friendly, the tables spaced for conversation and the views are lovely. Food is overpriced (we know views cost money) and not all dishes were equally prepared. Halibut was wonderful, wild Alaskan salmon was mild like it was farm-raised and the yearling oysters panfried in panko (?) crumbs were way overdone altho the oysters had a nice flavor. Potato wedges were soggy and old. Garlic mashed potatoes were fine. Broccoli was done nicely. Lobster bisque was a tad overspiced with a final shot of cayenne. Clam chowder had great flavor but too thick.

Service seemed friendly and perfunctory.

Consistently amazing seafood! There is no substitute for the shop when you're in the mood for a fine dining and seafood experience. Appetizers here are great, you can't go wrong with any of them. The lobster here is perfect as are the drinks at the bar. Check out Tacoma's old town before or after dinner if you're looking to kill time or have a great time.

PROS: Food, atmosphere, consistently great.

The food is excellent....definitely make sure you saved for this place. It is very spendy but well worth it. And if you are lucky enough to be sitting upstairs at sunset, you are going to see the most spectacular view overlooking the water.

PROS: Food, view, staff.

We always love to the Loberster shop for a special night out. When you walk in you feel like you are at a really nice restaurant (and you are), you are greated professionaly and the wait staff knows how to provide top notch service. The food is always very fresh and actually a good value for a top notch seafood place.

PROS: Great staff, food and location
CONS: none

While the Lobster Shack's name might make it sound like a funky seafood joint, check again. Presenting some of the South Bay's most striking western views across Puget Sound and Commencement Bay, the intimate dining room is a refreshing…
