Lobster Joint – Brooklyn, NY

Lobster Joint (1)As you all probably know, I love lobster.  If I had to choose one food to eat every day for the rest of my life, lobster would be it.  So, you can imagine how elated I was when I was told about the Lobster Joint in Greenpoint…who deliver…until midnight…every day except Monday.  Of course, the very next day I ordered my first lobster dinner delivery.

My personal preference for lobster is steamed, with melted butter and lemon – with corn and potatoes.  Lobster Joint covered all of those preferences in their lobster dinner, except the butter and lemon (which I conveniently had at the house already).  The lobster was cooked perfectly, the potatoes were seasoned well, and the corn was okay.  What you get is a lot of food, it’s a 1¾  lb lobster with 2 full ears of corn and enough potatoes for 2 people.  All in all, it’s a win, though I don’t think as much side as Lobster Joint (2)they send is necessary…I mean, there’s no way I’m sharing a 1¾ lb lobster with a second person, and theres no way I’m eating all of the sides myself.

My second delivery from them was a lobster roll order.  I was not as pleased with this and will certainly stick to just lobster dinner with them.  The roll itself was fine, though I prefer Connecticut style (warm with herb butter) than New England style.  The sides it comes with are a pickle, cole slaw, and your choice of fries, chips, or salad.  The side choices are where my sadness enters here.  All of the sides that they offer are the same price on the menu, however, they will not let you replace the fries (or chips/salad) with onion rings or any other side…even if you request to just pay more.  When I said, that’s fine, just charge me for the onion rings and don’t send the fries, they still wouldn’t do that.

I don’t see the point in not allowing people who want to pay more for an item change to do so when the sides are all priced the same.  For that reason, I will stick to the lobster dinner only from them, as I’m bound to get cravings for that with the sides it comes with as is.
