General Info:
The origins of the Old Port Lobster Shack actually arose serendipitously through a fated meeting resulting from a bumped plane ride. Paul Blatt, a friend of the Old Port Lobster Shack's owner, Russell Deutsch, sat next to a woman named Lynn Brown on a plane ride to Washington D.C. The two hit it off and exchanged numbers. That night, when Paul got home, he called Russell and told him "I just met your future wife." Russell grew up in the Boston area and was in the lobster exporting business. Lynn was born and raised in the Bay Area. Russell called Lynn several times and she eventually flew to Boston to meet him in person. Thirteen weeks later, at a surprise birthday party for Lynn, Russell gave her the ultimate birthday gift: a proposal for marriage. Delightfully, she accepted and Russell relocated to Redwood City. With his extensive experience in the lobster business, Deutsch came up with the idea of opening a New England-style lobster shack, which would fill a void in the San Francisco area. In January 2006, the Old Port Lobster Shack opened its doors and business has been great ever since. Deutsch imported many items from Maine and Boston to create a very unique New England port/harbor-style atmosphere, including the tables and benches, bouys hanging on the walls, fishing nets, a mini lighthouse and more. Great-tasting authentic New England-style seafood, a fun casual atmosphere and great customer service have made this restaurant a favorite destination for many people on the Peninsula. Besides lobster, the Old Port Lobster Shack provides an assortment of other wonderfully fresh seafood, such as shrimp, clams, mussels, oysters, sandwiches, seafood salads and clam chowder. But here, lobster is king. To really enjoy lobster at its peak, it must be eaten fresh. Freezing the lobster toughens the meat. Old Port Lobster Shack flies in fresh lobsters several times a week. Be prepared to eat the freshest lobster on the West Coast!

Awesome Hearty Lobster Rolls

I *heart* their lobster rolls. If this place is not that far from my work I would come here for a quick lunch at least once a week. The hearty lobster roll was so delicious. There were not much seasoning or sauce so you could really taste the lobster meat in every bite. As far as I could tell the ingredients were all pretty fresh. I also tried the clam chowder but it didn't leave much of an impression.
