In case you haven't heard, Ed's lobster bar is opened by Ed McFarland, the former sous chef of the very famous Pearl Oyster Bar. The restaurant made headlines when the owner of Pearl Oyster bar, Rebecca Charles sued Ed McFarland for copying her recipes and concepts. It was rumored that Ed's Lobster Bar might have to close shop because of the pending lawsuit. But thankfully, the case was settled out of court, and seafood lovers like us still get to eat excellent lobster rolls and tasty oysters at Ed's.
I like Ed's better just because it's less crowded and the lobster roll there is really good. The oysters samplers and fried calamari are delicious as well. I would not recommend ordering seafood pasta dishes at Ed's, but everything else is good. The restaurant does not take reservation, but there are usually tables available if you arrive early for dinner.
* Totally forgotten to take a picture of the oyster sampler.
