Lobster Joint is a little more upscale than the average seafood shack. For one, the Greenpoint restaurant's lobster rolls -- available in classic New England and Connecticut styles -- are pricey, but one bite of the creamy pile of lobster meat is all you need to narrow the rolls down to some of the best in New York. The menu includes a variety of seafood plates, as well as raw bar offerings and sides like mac & cheese, onion rings, and corn-on-the-cob. There's also a full bar stocked with beer (Narragansett, Lobster Ale), wine, and classic cocktails. The full-service spot includes a casual back patio with picnic tables and umbrellas.
