New England Rolls at Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City

I've been meaning to come to Old Port Lobster House for awhile since they have "lobster" in their title it should be mouth-watering good. They are located in a strip mall with a few outdoor tables. The theme of the restaurant is cheesy with lifesavers, wooden stands with boat ropes, get the point, a five year old would be very happy here.

Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City - Dressed lobster roll

They serve the lobster roll dressed or naked (with butter). The sandwich is $19, served with fries and coleslaw. The lobster was abundant and on a thinly toasted butter egg roll. I enjoyed it a lot since the bread to meat ratio was perfect. The lobster was slightly overdressed so I'll make sure to tell them next time. According to a CHOW post, the roll is an authentic New England style roll by Le Boulange baked especially for Old Port Lobster.

Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City - Clam chowder

At lunch, you can "combo" any dish for an extra $4 it includes a drink and your choice of clam chowder. This is a good deal since the soup is $5.75. This is one of the best clam chowder I've had so far, very smooth and the flavors were sweet and creamy. The soup chunks were still distinguishable and plenty.

Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City - Full belly clams

The $19.95 ipswich (full belly) clams were not fat, it was like eating fried clam strips but the basket was filled. I want to come back for the naked lobster, if you get two lobster rolls (called the Double Play) it is $35 so saving a few bucks.
