Restaurant : Red Hook Lobster Pound
Location : 284 Van Brunt Street | Brooklyn, NY 11231

Money : Moderate... I mean it is lobster. But they are very fair and you can buy fresh lobster at market price. Lobster rolls go for about $16 each and a lobster dinner (1 1/2 lb fresh maine lobster with their own coleslaw, potato salad and fresh corn) goes for $25... now c'mon... for NYC thats not bad for lobster!! Soups are $7 for about a generous sized cup and $10 for a mac n cheese loaded with lobster. So no, this isnt a cheap place... but considering saving yourself a trip to Maine with gas... this is a deal!
Must Try : The lobster rolls and the mac n cheese. And if you have room... the downeast bisque... I'll explain more later...
Type : Very casual. There are two doors... one side you can order from... and the other side has some indoor picnic benches to sit and chomp on your lobster. You clean up after yourself so its a real no-frills place.
Reservations : No reservations. Cafeteria style!
