North River Lobster Company is the city's first casual, fresh, three-floor floating lobster shack located at Pier 81 on W41st Street and the Hudson River, convenient to Times Square and the High Line. Be our guest and enjoy all things lobster, amidst breathtaking views of New York City’s skyline.
We take diners on short cruises out onto the Hudson up to seven times per day. Dine and unwind at your leisure, with a sailing schedule designed for quick lobster lunches, happy hour drinks, sunset dinners and incredible views of the Empire State Building and the Midtown skyline. We offer fresh seafood, light fare, signature Mason jar cocktails, buckets of beer and a raw bar boat. North River provides a laid back, casual atmosphere and even more casual ordering - we don't offer reservations. Simply come in, pick from a wide variety of seafood staples, order with the bartender and grab a seat - then sip on your favorite cocktail and let New York become New England! Meet your new favorite happy hour in Hell's Kitchen and finally treat NYC like an island. Welcome aboard!
We take our social and environmental responsibility very seriously and are always working with our purveyors on employing the very best in sustainable sourcing practices.
