Our first date was dinner at the Lobster Shop. We return every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We always order the lobster and never order it anywhere else because it is far and away the best we have ever had. As a bonus, the service and staff are always excelent.

“Nice place to eat, great view and Twilight Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Lobster Shop is on the Tacoma waterfront. We go for the "Twilight Menu" many times as it is such a good value. The burch is fantastic if you are really hungry...on special days make sure you have a reservation.

The restaurant is right over the water and is fun to go to when there is a storm out of the north. On clear days the views are from east to west, Port and Commencement Bay with Mt, Rainier sweeping west you see Brown's Point and the passage north on the east side of Vashon Island. You can watch the ferry crossing to the west with the distant view of the Olympic Mountains.

The food is delighful, tastey, cook correctly and presented well. Every item I have ordered, I enjoyed. Service is very good and your meal arrives as quickly as can be depending on what you ordered. The place has a comfortable elegant feel with rich woods and stone.

So for a pleasant experience and a good value at "Twilight" menu time, I'd go. Enjoy.

“Beautiful Deck and Water Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

My friend and I love coming here for the Twilight Menu. The timing just fits perfectly with my work schedule. The entree choices are varied enough that it doesn't get boring. They have a different happy hour/deck menu featuring some specialties. We particularly enjoyed the calamari! The hand-shaken margarita was also very good. We will continue to return here often!

“Twilight Menu: A Great Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Prior to 6pm they offer what they call their Twilight Menu which includes a selection of appetizers, main courses and desserts from their main menu for $20. If you order the same items after 6pm it would cost you approx. $35. So throw in the great view, great service and really good food you can't go wrong.

“Brunch was great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Went for Mother's Day brunch. I thought it would be over crowded but it wasn't. There was a pretty good brunch spread! Lots of variety. Wish I could have eaten more.
