My day job is in the Seaport district of Boston. About once a week I get lunch with a friend who also works in the area. We try go to new places to break up the routine of our meal preps, and it’s also a great way for me to see what restaurants in Boston have low carb and keto options.
This week we went to Yankee Lobster Co., located between Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and Harpoon Brewery. It is this little hole in the wall seafood place. You walk in and they have a fresh display of seafood right at the register.

There are TONS of carby options for sure, but amongst all the sandwiches and fried fish I found a few low carb possibilities. I decided I would try the lobster salad.
My Greek lobster salad.
You have several options for type of salad. You could get Caesar, Greek, garden, etc. I chose Greek with lobster and a Greek vinaigrette. The dressing added 1 carb to my salad. The salad itself was actually pretty tasty. Also, they put a lot of lobster on top. I was pretty hesitant at first because it’s a $20 salad, but if lobster is your thing then you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Other low carb options included grilled chicken and beef burgers (just ask for no bun), blackened salmon, scallops, clams and shrimp plates. However, their sides were definitely lacking. So, adding these things to a salad seemed like the best bet.
Overall, if you’re in the Seaport district and you’re looking for a restaurant a little less fancy or a place you can grab and go then definitely check out Yankee Lobster Co. The staff is friendly, one of the food runners even had a mini dance party with me while I paid for my food. Yankee Lobster Co. get’s a low carb friendly stamp from us here at the Keto Show.
