    Has anyone dined here? I would like to give it a whirl but looking to see if people thought it was good or horrible.

    I have not been able to find a menu with prices, how much will a lobster roll set me back?

    Hi Wanker, I tried the one at the Venetian and had the butter poached lobster, shallot crime cheese and Brie melt. Delicious, worth going back to Vegas for! And I'm from London!

    If I remember right, cost is $20-$30 per roll (half to full)...give or take a couple bucks. The meat is claw meat, which has a lot of the spongy claw pieces mixed in. I will reluctantly eat here every now and then, but for the money, you can get a much nicer meal elsewhere.

    Been wanting to try it, but then again my first lobster roll ever was down in Key West, so my standard is pretty high

    Aren't the best lobster rolls supposed to be in Maine?

    There or Boston, though I am sure this may start a fight!

    Well let me ask you this, are there better lobster rolls elsewhere in Vegas. Sadly I love lobster but never had 1 and I am sure I'd love it. Being Vegas I know the price will be high. Seems like a nice quick lunch for being across the street at Cosmo.

    Definitely worth trying once, but far from the best lobster meat you can get in Vegas.

    Giada's has an excellent lobster roll. They use a whole lobster for one sandwich.

    LOL! My husband is from Boston. Just say the best lobster rolls are from New England. :)

    He hasn't tried Lobster ME, but he did say the one he had at Sid's (the cafe at Westgate) was very good. I believe it was $17. Another one he said was good was during lunchtime hours at Rick Moonen at Mandalay Bay.

    I'd suggest Luke's Lobster, which just opened a kiosk in front of the Fashion Show Mall. They've been here in NYC for a while, and their lobster rolls are phenomenal.

    Thanks mike.. that is exactly the review I was looking for! Haha...

    I am not expecting authentic new England lobster rolls but something close. I never had one sadly and who knows when I will get out that way...

    Not bad, pretty good and overpriced should be the new vegas slogan!

    Luke's is Maine-style -- a little bit of mayo (which, as someone who hates mayo, I still find them delicious, and it's definitely not a "lobster salad" type of thing), a little lemon butter, and spices on a toasted, buttered roll. There are other places here in the New York area, in particular Red Hook Lobster Pound, which offers Connecticut style with just butter and served warm, but I think Luke's is the way to go. They do shrimp and crab rolls, too. And for what it's worth, they have 4.5 stars on Yelp, versus 3.5 stars at the LobsterMe PH location.

    I've had lobster rolls at Mon Ami Gabi and at Giada's. Both were excellent but more of a lobster salad variety. I would order either again but would love to also find an authentic option. I tried to order one at Phillips Seafood in the Caesar's food court. The day I was there, they were sold out of lobster! Who knows, it could have been the best.

    Lobster rolls in all forms are the new tuna tartare. They are everywhere and mostly mediocre.

    At there twice at PH back in September and really enjoyed it. They were $18 if I remember correctly. Definitely worth a try IMO.
