Red Hook Lobster Pound Celebrates 15 Years

 Brooklyn, NY - March 25, 2024 - Red Hook Lobster Pound proudly announces its 15th anniversary, marking a decade and a half of bringing the taste of Maine's finest lobster to the heart of Brooklyn. Since its inception in 2009, Red Hook Lobster Pound has grown from a simple two tank storefront to a cherished culinary destination, renowned for its commitment to quality, authenticity, and unparalleled seafood dining experience.

Can you believe it's been 15 years already? Yes, it's true! From our humble beginnings of driving up to Maine once a week to bring back the freshest lobsters, to weathering the storm of Hurricane Sandy, surviving Covid 19 (literally and figuratively)  and emerging stronger than ever, it's been quite the journey. 

As a small family-owned seafood restaurant nestled in the heart of Red Hook, Brooklyn, we've poured our hearts and souls into every aspect of our business. From those early days of serving up mouthwatering lobster rolls under a simple tent at the Brooklyn Flea, to the bustling full-service restaurant we are today - each milestone has been a testament to our passion for bringing you the finest seafood experience possible.

"Reaching this milestone is a testament to the steadfast  support of our loyal customers, dedicated staff, and the vibrant community of Red Hook," said Susan Povich, Co-founder of Red Hook Lobster Pound. "We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve our customers and share our passion for exceptional seafood for the past 15 years." "We take pride in delivering an authentic Maine lobster experience to our patrons," added Ralph Gorham, Co-founder of Red Hook Lobster Pound. "Our commitment to quality has been the cornerstone of our success, and we look forward to continuing to delight our customers for many years to come."

Red Hook Lobster Pound has remained committed to sourcing the freshest Maine lobsters, ensuring an authentic taste of the New England coast with every bite. From traditional lobster rolls served on buttery, toasted buns to the beloved Cobbster Salad, the menu reflects a fusion of culinary creativity and traditional flavors.

Join us as we mark this special occasion with a series of special promotions, events, and giveaways throughout their anniversary weekend at all locations.
