North River Lobster Company

by Jenni Walkowiak

My favorite part about summer in the city has got to be spending time outside with my friends. Few things say “summer” more than eating fresh seafood out on the water, and that’s why you should take a turn this summer on the North River Lobster Boat!

 North River Lobster Company is the “largest floating lobster shack in NYC”. A sail in the Hudson River costs only $10 (not including all the food you’re gonna eat of course) and departs from Pier 81. Daily cruises are Monday and Wednesday at 5 and 7 PM, and Thursday- Sunday at 1, 3, 5, and 7. The North River Lobster Company is closed on Tuesdays.

 Menu prices range from about $9-$40, which isn’t half-bad for what you’re getting! Fresh seafood, cocktails in mason jars, buckets of beer. It’s really a dream summer menu.

 And even if the food wasn’t awesome- it’s a cheap boat cruise with stunning views of Manhattan, a rooftop deck and buckets of beer. Sounds like a perfect Saturday afternoon to me!
