The Unassuming Buffalo Restaurant That Serves The Best Seafood You’ve Ever Tried
Considering the fact that Buffalo is roughly six hours away from the ocean, we aren’t exactly the first city that comes to your mind when you’re thinking about mouthwatering seafood restaurants. So when I tell you that one of the Queen City’s best-kept secrets is an inconspicuous seafood joint, I’ll understand your confusion if you aren’t familiar with where I’m talking about. A place so unassuming that most of the time when people arrive, they’re either convinced they have the wrong address or are unsure if the restaurant is even open.
Ready to feast on the best surprise of your life? Then let us tell you all about Viking Lobster Company on the corner of Tonawanda and Austin Street.
Blending in with all of the residential houses, Viking Lobster Company is the seafood restaurant you were dreaming to find in the city of Buffalo.
After discovering the restaurant's name painted on both sides of the building, you'll be reassured enough that you're at the right location to step inside and begin your dining experience.
A restaurant that's made up of several different dining rooms, you'll see that there are lobster trap light fixtures and an overall fisherman's theme decorated throughout Viking Lobster Company.
Now onto the heart of the restaurant - the food!
Viking Lobster Company has fresh seafood shipped in directly from the North Atlantic Coast and even uses ingredients from their very own farm out in Middleport to make sure you're always tasting amazing flavors.
Dining at Viking Lobster Company may not be a cheap experience, but it's worth every penny. Menu items like their famous Ultimate Feast provide you with a dinner for two that gives you two lobsters, six shrimp, six scallops, broiled haddock, three clusters of snow crab, a half rack of BBQ ribs and a 10-ounce chicken breast!
At Viking Lobster Company, they've got it all. You'll find things like New York steak strips, surf and turf, salmon, BBQ pork ribs, and paella all on their menu.
Other noteworthy mentions about the Viking Lobster Company? It's a cash-only restaurant and they also have a BYOB policy in place.
Unofficially given the title of being Buffalo's seafood wonderland, remember not to judge a book by its cover and enjoy a meal at Viking Lobster Company.
You may get fisherman vibes from the interior of Viking Lobster Company, but there's still hints of Viking in here as well! If you decide to come and dine here on your birthday, you'll even get the luxury experience of wearing an actual Viking hat. Woah, baby! If you do plan on dining here on the weekend though, you'll want to call and make a reservation in advance. This place may be a hidden gem of the Queen City, but that doesn't stop it from frequently booking up weeks in advance.
