So what happened to all that money? Did you lose it at the tables, blow it on bottle service, or spend a little too much of it at the strip club? Don’t worry. You can still eat. Las Vegas may be known for indulgent fine dining restaurants, but there’s also plenty of amazing food around that’s 10 bucks or less. It’s not as good as getting something for free, but it’s pretty close.

The Frenchy, $10

Out of the three lobster melts on the menu, The Frenchy packs the sweetest crunch of ‘em all into every bite. The butter-poached lobster comes with melted brie and shallot cream cheese on thick white panini grilled bread.

FEATURED ON CELEBRITY RADIO BY ALEX BELFIELD: Lobster ME Review Las Vegas

Lobster ME is an extraordinary take away ‘fast food’ restaurant – it’s exceptional because I actually wanted to eat there and thoroughly enjoyed the food.

This isn’t your ‘average’ joint, it offers Maine lobster in every variation possible.

Located in the Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes and also in Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood, this busy eatery offers slick service and freshly cooked food while you wait.

To begin why not enjoy a cocktail with a twist? In fact it has a lobster-tail as a twist!

The Lobster Mary cocktail was a very cute take on the bloody Mary, it certainly has punch!

My favourite though was the blueberry Margarita. So refreshing and fruity – a very naughty treat!

Who knew – lobster and alcohol in the same glass could work? Well it does at Lobster ME.

The menu has many fishy options including shrimp and lobster salads, tacos, soups & sandwiches.

As you can see above (pic 2) the shrimp with a simple sauce is divine. Great produce doesn’t need whistles and bangs – these meaty, fresh & moreish shrimp were divine.

The restaurant keeps it simple by putting the menu above the counter:

The fish comes in grilled and deep fried options.

Don’t miss the shrimp and lobster sliders – great & delicious if you’re in a rush.

Next you have to try the Lobster salad – so fresh, crisp and delicious! One of my favourite things on the entire menu.

No takeaway restaurant could be complete without fries. Lobster ME offer two options, the Cajun fries as well as the salt and vinegar fries (pic 1)

Next came the lobster sandwich (freshly cooked in-store as you wait) with crisps / chips on the side as well as a small coleslaw.

Finally the Lobster Mac N Cheese was a massive hit at our table. A classic done beautifully.

The highlight of my meal was the ‘Lobsicle’.

For $15 you get some of the most delicious and tender lobster I’ve ever tasted!

I could return for this (healthy) fast food snack every day!

Lobster Me Review Venetian Las Vegas (8)

What I love about Lobster ME is that it knows what it is and does it brilliantly.

It’s unpretentious but offers exceptional quality food for the price.

The service is also friendly and more than helpful.

If only EVERY take away franchise could have food and service this good!

This should be the benchmark for 2015 takeaway fast food!

FEATURED ON THE DAILY MEAL: Sandwich of the Week, Lobster Grilled Cheese

4 1/2 OUT OF 5 STARS

Located inside the Venetian and Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Lobster ME is a little taste of Maine right in the heart of Sin City. Lobster rolls are the top sellers; each is made to order with the meat of a one-pound lobster, and other menu items include lobster and chips, fried lobster tail on a stick, and lobster and waffles for breakfast. But there’s one menu item that you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else: a lobster grilled cheese, which sells for $11.

This sandwich starts with a half-pound of cooked Maine lobster, which is gently mixed with a half-ounce each of Brie and cream cheese until it’s all melded together. Thick-sliced white bread is buttered on one side; the mixture is added to the non-buttered side and topped with two slices of Gruyère and the second slide of bread. The sandwich is then griddled until the bread is browned and buttery and the cheese is melted.

The sandwich is full of lobster flavor and it’s perfectly balanced by the cheese. It’ll power you through all Vegas has to offer.
