Does Cambridge food get any fresher than “alive and kicking”? Probably not. Alive and Kicking Lobsters in Cambridge is sure to be of help to you, whether you’re in search of a comfy hangout on your meal break or your friends have elected you to choose the next lunch location.

The Roll

First thing’s first: Alive and Kicking doesn’t serve lobster rolls. It serves lobster sandwiches. What’s the difference between them? A lobster roll is composed of two bland slices of bread, semi-fresh lobster, and a little too much mayo.

The Sandwich

A lobster sandwich from Alive and Kicking is like something out of your wildest imagination: freshly shucked lobster—combined with just the right amount of creamy mayo—secured between two slices of toasted and buttered Scali bread. You’re also free to pair your meal with a bag of chips and one of the restaurant’s signature soda pop selections.

Though the lobster sandwich has always been a customer favorite, Alive and Kicking satisfies all kinds of seafood cravings for reasonable prices, whether you have a hankering for steamed clams, salmon, scallops, haddocks, oysters, clam chowder, or fish chowder, to name a few possibilities.

Other Kicking Perks

Alive and Kicking prides itself on a colorful menu, generous portions of seafood (you won’t be eating mouthfuls of mayo in your lobster sandwich), and pleasant outdoor picnic benches. Perhaps the best part is that the restaurant doors remain open during the winter months, so you can feast on seafood all year round.

The restaurant is in the heart of a residential area, but don’t let that hinder you; guests love Alive and Kicking’s stark contrast in atmosphere from that of the quiet homes nearby. Upon arrival, you’ll see the lobster traps, aquariums, and take in the nostalgic, salty air that every genuine seafood shack should have.
