Casual fish market, located off the Manasquan River, that boasts a small seafood menu. It’s primarily takeout, though there are a few outdoor picnic tables for dining on the premises.
The family-owned company, founded by Jack Godwin in 1981, started as a wholesale lobster distributor. It moved around town a few times before settling into the current location in 2006. Point Lobster Company is now managed by Jack’s son, John.
The main attraction is the $17 Connecticut-style lobster roll (above), a toasted hot dog bun stuffed with warm lobster meat tossed in a bit of melted butter. Add crispy, thin-sliced fries for $3. Other offerings include fried scallops or clams, breaded fresh fillet, crab cakes, blackened fish, coconut shrimp and peel-and-eat jumbo shrimp. For the seafood averse, chicken tenders are available. The $20 Captain’s Catch dinner brings you a split 1-1/4 pound lobster with fries and coleslaw.
Point Lobster is a popular Shore attraction in summer months, so call ahead with your orders to cut down on wait time.Click here to leave a comment
