Lobster Shack

Runaway Bay

Lobster Shack, part of Runaway Beach, can be found close to downtown St. John's; it's less than a mile (a kilometer and a half) to the south west of Dickenson Bay. This is one local eatery that's enjoyed, not merely for its Creole food and hot dogs, but they're also masters of sandwiches.

As you might expect, lobster is the main event at the Lobster Shack. All lobster on the menu is obtained locally, and at times you can even watch as the fresh catch is brought in for the day. Poultry, meat, and even vegetarian dishes are also on the menu, and a specialized kids menu means that even the little ones can enjoy it here.
