Old Port Lobster Shack adds downtown Redwood City location

Uploaded: Jul 22, 2019
Downtown Redwood City is now home to a new outpost of Old Port Lobster Shack.

The locally born, New England-style seafood restaurant opened recently in the ground floor of the Box building at 900 Middlefield Road, Suite A.

The restaurant serves lobster rolls, fish and chips, chowders, fried oysters and other ocean-born fare, plus burgers and barbecued meats.

Old Port Lobster Shack got its start in Redwood City in 2006. With several additional openings over the years -- and then closures, as well as the former owner being charged with sales tax evasion -- two other locations remain at 20 Woodside Plaza in Redwood City and at the Ladera Country Shopper on Alpine Road in Portola Valley.

Per Yelp, the new restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

I hope the quality of the lobster in the rolls has been improved since they were on Veterans Blvd in Redwood City. That place was such a disappointment & many friends went there once or twice, never to return. (Lobster roll fans are strongly advised to follow Sam's Chowder House mobile truck!)
