Lobster Joint

Situated a few blocks from the water's edge in Greenpoint, this New England–style seafood shack recalls its waterfront inspiration with nautical touches, like a ship wheel and a 150-pound anchor. Chef Justin Ernsberger (the Mermaid Inn, Lure Fishbar) dispatches familiar seaside classics, like lobster rolls, clam chowder and fish-and-chips, plus a selection of raw-bar plates. To drink, choose from four drafts, such as Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner and Belfast Bay Lobster Ale.

I don't get the fuss over this place. Super average food. kind of dingy smelling inside, usually pretty loud. The lobster rolls never taste that fresh to me and might even have crayfish meat in them. High ish prices for what it is. You order at the register and then get a number for your food to be brought to you, so it isn't even real sit down wait service. The outdoor eating area is nice.
