Take a Cruise on New York’s Only Floating Lobster Shack

Welcome aboard!

Bites & Booze

We’ve got lobster rolls for days from our classic signature roll to our specialty rolls like the Lower East Side everything bagel roll, and our monstrous 28 inch Shelly roll! Don’t stop there, go all in on our full raw bar, or cozy up with some classic clam chowder. Now pair that with a pitcher of sangria, a delicious frozé, a bucket of cold beer, or some of our new fishbowl cocktails! Whatever you are in the mood for, we’ve got you covered.
