Author 12-30-2015

Best lobster in San Diego

Whether you prefer your lobster Boston-style or Baja-style–or both!–we’ve got the restaurants you’ve been craving. If delicious shellfish is what you’re looking for, look no further than these restaurants for the best lobster in San Diego.

Island Prime & C Level

Resting on stilts above San Diego Bay, Island Prime & C Level are a two-restaurant, one-location combo that offers some of the best lobster in San Diego–and some of the best views too!

Island Prime’s celebrated Lobster Bisque is available at both restaurants. But only at Island Prime will you find the tantalizing “A Study In Lobster” dish, featuring sherry bisque, lobster lollipops and lobster ceviche.

C Level’s claim to lobster fame is the Lobster Truffle Mac ‘n Cheese, served with local organic greens, candied walnuts and fresh herb vinaigrette.

Rockin Baja (Gaslamp Quarter)

About an hour south of San Diego, tourists have flocked to Puerto Nuevo along the Baja Mexico coast for fresh Pacific lobsters. Instead of being served with butter, these lobsters were wrapped in warm flour tortillas along with ranchero beans, Mexican rice and a hot red chili sauce. Puerto Nuevo is still famous for its lobsters, but now you can find Baja’s best lobster in San Diego at Rockin Baja in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Choose from the Puerto Nuevo Lobster Feast For Two, or the Lobster Lover’s Combo: a San Felipe style Lobster Taco, an Enchilada stuffed with Lobster, Shrimp & Cheese and a cup of creamy Lobster Corn Chowder, Ranchero Beans and Mexican Rice.

Cody’s La Jolla

The best lobster in San Diego just might be found in a lobster roll at Cody’s La Jolla. Although the menu isn’t populated with numerous lobster dishes, the lobster roll is enough to have landed Cody’s an extremely high Trip Advisor rating for this delicious dish.

Bite of Boston

You can experience a Bite of Boston at either of two family-owned and -operated fast-casual restaurants in San Diego. The menu is purposefull simple, straightforward and straight out of New England. A fan favorite for the best lobster in San Diego is the BoB Lobster Roll, featuring fresh chunks of Maine lobster meat mixed with diced celery & minimal mayo—all stuffed into an authentic, butter-grilled, New England-style frankfurt roll
