Boston Lobster Feast is located next to Don Pablos on International Drive. This isn’t a restaurant in Orlando Florida that I’ve had an opportunity to visit before.
Since I’ve seen an overwhelming demand to know more about it my husband Chris and I decide to give it a try!
I’ve always seen the lobster mobile driving around town and wondered what it was for. So I checked out the website and signed up for their free e-mail club.
About a week later I got a coupon in my inbox. So instead of paying the normal $37.95 for the seafood feast I received a coupon for $29.95!
Boston Lobster Feast has special offers for e-mail club members only. If you want to visit you may want to consider signing up for their e-mail list.
I get a coupon every two weeks or so. All you have to do is print it out and it’s good for every member of your party.
Normally if you go before 6pm you can get the early bird pricing of $24.95. After 6pm the price soars to $37.95.
With the email coupon you’ll save between $5.00-$8.00. Which is nice considering the buffet at Boston Lobster Feast is kinda pricey.
Our special e-mail offer included Alaskan King Crab. That was pretty cool. When we got to the restaurant we just let our server know and she went ahead and put an order in for us at no extra charge!
The buffet was a little smaller than I expected. It had a nice variety of sushi, oysters, shrimp salad and fresh fruit on the cold bar.
Plus some unusual items like baby squid. That’s not exactly my cup of tea. On the hot bar there were crab cakes, seafood au gratin, salmon and other fish choices.
There was also a small selection of comfort foods that included mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, pasta and red sauce.
Then there were snow crab legs, Prime Rib and of course Lobster. Keep in mind if you’re only going to eat lobster you’ll only be served one at a time.
I was expecting everything to be prepared for me. You know, big chunks of meat, or at the very least, lobster tails just waiting for me to dive in. This isn’t the case.
They give you the entire lobster! With eyes, legs, organs and everything else.
I guess I’m a little bit of a princess when it comes to my seafood because I really don’t want it looking back at me.
Anyway with that aside I went to town tearing this beast apart. After I dissected all of the green and orange gook off of the meat I was left with a huge hunk of deliciousness.
However, I couldn’t bring myself to open up another one. My best advise would be just to tear off the tail and claw.
Go ahead and discard the head and torso in the plastic trash bowls they provide you. Unless you like the delicacy of the internals of the lobster.
I really enjoyed the Alaskan snow crab though. We got a nice variety of legs. Plus it wasn’t staring me down. If you’re a true seafood fanatic you’re going to love Boston Lobster Feast.
If you can take it or leave it this may not be the right Orlando Florida restaurant for you.
Remember this’s a seafood buffet, not fine dining in Orlando Florida. So keep this in mind. It's not a good place for a quiet, romantic evening.
The service was wonderful. The waitress was on top of removing dirty plates and bowls filled with seafood scraps. She was also very good about making sure we had our fill of the special Alaskan King Crab.
I also saw other servers constantly cleaning the floors and buffet. As well as refilling items on the dessert buffet.
The dessert buffet offered items like mini key lime pie bites, mini cheesecake bites, cookies, chocolate cake and rice crispy treats. Again go to Boston Lobster Feast to get your fair share of lobster and steak and you’ll go home happy.
If you expect top of the line lobsters you’ll be disappointed but if you go in knowing you’ll get what you pay for you’ll enjoy it.
Remember this’s a BUFFET so just like any other buffet in Orlando food sits under heat lamps. So if it’s been there for awhile it may not be too appetizing.
If the lobster looks like it’s been over cooked (which it sometimes is) just wait until they bring out a fresh set. It can make the difference.
I read on the website that Boston Lobster Feast had all sorts of different food. When we arrived I was a little disappointed at the size of the buffet. Come to find out you can order many things from the kitchen for no extra charge.
Be sure to ask about vegetables, potatoes, lobster bisque and made to order steaks. Unfortunately our server didn’t tell us this so make sure you ask so you can get your money’s worth.
Boston Lobster Feast reminded me of a seaside restaurant that steams the food right after it’s caught. Chris had a little shell and some barnacles hanging off of his steamed clam!
It was kinda funny though. Who needs to go to the beach to collect sea shells? Although I have a silly husband who thinks I would actually want to keep these....men!
I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant in Orlando to people that only have luke warm feelings about seafood. Nor would I recommend it for children. I would recommend it to people that Love Love Love seafood.
I’m not a true seafood Lover. I’d call myself a seafood Liker. So if you LOVE seafood and you think you can get your fill of lobster, steak, shrimp and other shell fish then Boston Lobster Feast would be good for you.
You supply the hunger and they’ll supply the bibs!
