A Far cry from my last visit 5yrs ago. It moved here from 17/92 OBT location and its been Franchise? WTF happened? I was appalled. Food was pre frozen on a single small buffet, cold square fish? Com on man! Crab legs were in pieces soggy typical buffet style but not very good. The Lobster was soggy not bad, not worth it. Scallops on the bar next to the Crab, were in a thick pasty already sauce cooked to high heaven. The dessert bar had 5 pre made items like small 1 inch square each pieces of pecan pie, Brownie Co mon man I spent $140 bucks for 3 we bi!tched at the manager he knocked one price off so I ended up paying in a not so happy way $95 bucks plus tip. Tip? my Tip don't go. The special order French fries were even cold. Save your money and go to golden corral or a Chinese buffet for 12 bucks the food will be better trust me. So in a nutshell it’s worse than a Duffs and an unfortunate casualty of a Greed tourist trap with no regard for the tourists. If you see the sign RUN!

My wife and I are retired and live to visit various restaurants in the Orlando area. We have been to Boston Lobster Feast a number of times over the past 4 years and have never had a bad experience. We take the grandchildren, who love breaking open the lobster and wearing the lobster bibs. I was surprised to see the negative reviews on this site. We have found the food to be fresh and were pleased by the variety. I like the baked fish and the shell fish so much, I run out of room for the lobster (not completely, since this is a lobster feast). I do recomment the restaurant. It is much superior to the other lobster buffets in town that we have tried. The variety and quality of the food is superior. Go before 6 p.m. to get the early price and get your waiter to show you how to break open the lobster easily.

We went to the Boston Lobster Feast by the Florida Mall. I should have listened to all the negative reviews I had read. It was the worst food EVER. We had a coupon for free drinks (we just had iced tea) and our bill was still $184.00 for 4 people. I haven't figured that one out yet. The food was cold, hard, dry and overcooked and in general tasteless. I tried a little of almost everything on the buffet and found nothing that was good. The only good thing I had was the french fries they cook fresh and bring to your table. What a deal! $45.00 for a 5"" plate of french fries. Don't make the same mistake. There are many other places to eat wonderful seafood...Boston Lobster Feast is the biggest rip off of them all.

The ad said: prime rib, lobster, crab legs, sushi. I called ahead to find out that dinner was $35 per person; $15 for child. Expensive so it must be good, right? WRONG! The food was all of INFERIOR quality. The prime rib was poor quality, the lobster was overcooked, the crab legs were pieces, and the sushi was mostly missing. I cannot believe how disappointing an experience eating at this place on a Friday night could be. It actually made me want to stop eating out. And don't think they made up for the poor ""leader"" foods with either a salad bar or dessert bar, both of which were tiny, sad and unmemorable. I don't think I have ever been more disappointed. (BTW, we out to a neighboring steak house the next night: had three great meals, appetizer, drinks, bottle of wine, tipped generously and still cheaper than two adults and one child at Boston Lobster Feast where we all left disappointed.) Only positive quality at Boston Lobster Feast was Sveltanna, our server, who was very nice; she should go get a job serving a better restaurant.

This was my first time to Boston Lobster Feast and I will NEVER go there again, especially the one on International Drive. Reasons to go somewhere else:
-This place is way too expensive (34.99 early bird, 39.99 dinner)
-Food was barely edible; shrimp, lobster, mussels, clams, all overcooked. I was gagging on the shrimp pasta.
-Service was horrible. I could barely understand my waiter. I got there late so he didn't come around with a menu so I didn't get a chance to see that they offered kids meals. My 4 year old daughter ate from the buffet and she ws charged 14.95 even though she barely ate: two bites of mashed potatoes, a bite of broccoli, a bite of fried fishball.
-Management is horrible. I asked the manager why my daughter was charged 14.95 for her meal and he said she ate the seafood buffet (look at her food list). I told him I called in earlier asking for the prices and was told that kids could eat the non-seafood buffet which would be 8.95. The manager said, they only have the kids meal or the childs buffet. He did not care that my child barely ate anything and that i was not given a menu to choose the kids meal.
-Restaurant was dirty
In short, this Boston Lobster Feast is horrible and I will NEVER go there again. I am going to tell anyone and everyone to avoid this place.
