Wa Lobster Pot In Ridgewood is situated in a very unobtrusive area along Chestnut Street in Ridgewood. Competing with many other places along the restaurant row leads to another competition, parking which is usually at a premium. After several different days to visit this restaurant, we decided to go for an early dinner near to 3 PM. It turned out to be a judicious time to go as there were several spaces including one almost right in front of Wa Lobster Pot. After inserting enough quarters in the meter, we entered the restaurant and had a wide choice of seating since we were the only ones there.
