A friendly welcome on the sea front. The fire is lit, and the craic is good. Has big screens for sport but still maintains an authentic Irish Pub atmosphere. We had drinks only but Food looked great too.

On a Wild Atlantic Way road trip and decided to stop in Waterville.
The Lobster is on main street and look inviting from the outside.
Inside a lovely fire and a nice welcome.
Had main courses only - seafood pie and beefburger - both delicious washed down with a pint of creamy Guinness.

We happened to stumble across this bar on a road trip, and what a treasure of a find. The pub is just so characterful inside, and you are warming greeted just like in the good old days, warm and comfortable and typically Irish. With a good variety of beer on tap and a comprehensive menu of offerings.

The food was just perfect, having grown up with Irish food, I can firmly state that the food was authentically great. Well presented, hot and perfect to taste. A brilliant visit that we really enjoyed, and I cannot wait to come back in the warmer months and enjoy the same all over again.

Brilliant!.

Friendly atmosphere with nice staff, right off the waterside street of Waterville. Great food! The patrons can also be friendly and chatty, especially if they have been enjoying some pints for a while now. ;-)

We visited Ireland in late November and decided to drive the Ring of Kerry. After an on-again, off-again day of rain and sleet, we decided to stop in Waterville for a late lunch. The Lobster was right on Main Street, so we decided to give it a try. Although it was cold and sleety outside, it was warm and comfortable inside with a real fire in the fireplace. The food was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. It makes me wish we had visited in-season to really see this place in action.
