Wicked Lobsta is located in the Quincy Market colonnade, which is a massive food hall in a historic building with more than 50 diverse eateries and vendors to choose from.
Quincy Hall is popular with tourists and locals alike; note that it can be super packed and difficult to find seating during peak hours. There are seats and standing tables on the main floor, plus additional seating on the second floor. Note that there are very aggressive birds inside Quincy Hall that will snatch your food if you’re not vigilant.
Wicked Lobsta makes everything fresh daily using lobsters from Maine. Some of their notable menu items include Hot Butta Lobsta Roll and Lobsta Mac and Cheese. They open as early as 10 am on most mornings (except Sunday) so it can be a great option if you’re looking for an early lunch.
I ordered a Naked Maine Lobsta Roll which is the non-mayo hot version with butter. It was very delicious, the lobster meat tasted fresh and perfectly cooked, and the amount of lobster was satisfactory. My only complaint was that there was a copious amount of butter that made holding the roll impossible. The melted butter seeped into the roll, which made it soggy and fall apart. Eating this lobster roll was a very messy and greasy endeavor.
If you’re looking for more food than just a lobster roll, they also offer a special where you get a lobster roll, a cup of clam chowder, and a drink for a reasonable price in the $30 range.
Service was very quick, taking only a few minutes to prepare the roll for me (there were no other customers besides me at the time). I likely wouldn’t return for the lobster roll since it was so messy to eat, but I would consider returning for their lobster mac and cheese or clam chowder.
