THE NEW ENGLAND LOBSTER COMPANY began as a wholesale distributor of live Maine lobster in 1987, delivering to restaurants from Napa to Monterey Bay. After fifteen years serving a growing list of customers that included many of the Bay Area’s leading restaurants and retailers, we opened our doors to the general public in 2002 offering live, cooked, and frozen seafood out of our location in South San Francisco.
In October of 2011 we added our “We’re On A Roll” food truck and began serving our homemade lobster corn chowder, lobster, and crab rolls. The reception was astounding ̶ so much so that just a year later we moved to our present location on Cowan Road in Burlingame. We opened a retail seafood market and a casual New England-style eatery. Our menu also grew to include lobster and Dungeness crab plates, rolls, salads, and a variety of creative seafood fare.
After 33 years, New England Lobster continues to have live lobsters flown in daily and served in almost all of our dishes. We also provide catering for local events such as lobster and crab feeds. We take great pride in making all of our dishes from scratch. We promise you won't find a dining experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area; you may even think you’re in Maine.
