Mine Host, Stirling Stewart, stars in the East Scotland Seafood video, speaking about the subject of the lobster industry here in North Berwick and his involvement in promoting the industry, which provides the Lobster Shack, Rocketeer Restaurant and the Nether Abbey Hotel with its superb lobster.
Here, Stirling tells you all about the Lobster Shack - why and when it was opened - and you'll not resist the temptation to come along and try it for yourself!
Our suppliers are all local and we know them on a first name basis. This ensures that we receive the finest produce that East Lothian has to offer.
Jack Dale has been fishing for lobsters and crabs out of the Firth of Forth for many years. Their produce is of such high quality until now the majority has been going to Spain
Until some clever, wealthy individual starts farming shellfish in the Firth of Forth we will be getting ours from J K Thomson of Musselburgh. They supply us with the best mussels from the Shetland Isles and the west coast of Scotland.

THE LOBSTER SHACK HAS A NEW AWNING, SO WE CAN OPEN WHATEVER THE WEATHER
Our charming little eaterie offers the sea’s most plentiful bounty in a stunningly delicious and affordable way.
You can sample beautiful lobster, crab, sea bass and line-caught mackerel cooked to your liking, right before your eyes. The Lobster Shack is also fully licensed so you can enjoy it all with a cold beer, a crisp glass of wine or even prosecco.
As a registered First Fish Buyer, we buy the freshest catch directly from the boats in the harbour.
Conserving the natural beauty and biodiversity of our coastline is also very important to us. We only offer ethically caught seafood and everything we use, even down to the cutlery, is sustainably sourced and biodegradable as much as possible.
If you happened to visit North Berwick during the summer months do not miss the Lobster Shack down by the harbor. You will wait in line but believe me it is worth it. My favorite was the half lobster and chips but everyone said the fish and chips were also very good. Same food is offered at the Rocketeer a block off the harbor, all outdoor seating. My favorite in North Berwick!
LOVE the Lobster Shack on the Harbour in North Berwick ... been twice in the last few months before the end of the summer season. First time ate 2 delicious meals - well deserved after cycling from Edinburgh. Really good jucy mussels and the best chips, along with a portion of fish cakes between 2 of us. You can't beat the location but the food is great too. HIGHLY recommended ! 2nd visit was a cheeky portion of chips after a long walk - just as good the 2nd time round. GO ...
Really friendly service ... will definitely be back next summer.
There is no better al fresco dining experience than fresh sea food at the harbour! Visited the lobster shack on a scorching hot summers day, the whole harbour was full of tourists and diners. Lovely atmosphere and the best fish cakes! Would like to go back one day when I don't have the car to enjoy my meal with a glass of wine!
This was my first trip to North Berwick & certainly will not be my last, I'm already looking forward to another meal at the Lobster Shack. The half lobster & chips was delicious. The value for money is incredible, the staff are great...only downside was the weather but once I started eating I didn't even notice the wind & rain!
We love this place...so keep it to yourself please we don't want everyone to find out! No really it's perfect, as long as the weathers good because when it's bad it's not open. Which is why we visit every summer...mmmmmmm!
We always have half lobster,chips & salad yummy this years price was £12.95.
The service is second to none and the three lads serving were exelant and very quick service, we love it as a family of four it's not cheep, but heho if you want fresh fabtastic food this is the place for you. They all so do other fab fishy food and nice wine & champs... So enjoy these lovely dilights :) x
