“Does what it says on the tin” – these bustling upscale diners no longer seem quite as novel as they once did but continue to offer “a winning combination of burger and lobster served at a reasonable price point”. Under the same ownership as the Goodman steak chain – from autumn 2018, the owners plan a new, more informal spin-off brand, ‘Shack by Burger & Lobster’, to be launched in Camden.
“For a straightforward, relaxed meal with a bit of pizzazz”, these “buzzy” joints maintain their massive popularity with a “simple” formula executed “with style”: “awesome lobster rolls” are “excellent value” – the burgers “are rather expensive, albeit well-executed”.
“If you have the lobster, it’s a top deal”, according to the massive fanclub of this “so simple, so well-executed” concept. “It’s less of a bargain for the burger”, but they’re “surprisingly good” too.
“For a simple, no-nonsense meal” with “a real buzz”, armies of fans still heartily recommend these “relaxed” surf ’n’ turf diners, lauding the “succulent lobsters” and “amazing” burgers. Ratings continue to slide south however, and for a few cynics it’s turning into “McDonalds, but with better lighting”.
Burger & Lobster Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I like B&L but it’s not great value for money, food is nice but at £20 for a burger there is better value, same applies to the service, adequate but no more. That said, it’s a fun vibe and the quality is good"
