I must have been at a different restaurant than the other reviewers because this place is an overpriced tourist trap. Slow service and bland food. $32 for the "fresh" halibut that was merely a 6oz portion swimming in a tomato braiding liquid that had ZERO flavor. Cod, boring. Calamari, chewy and flavorless. Scampi made with mushrooms. WHAT? Who does that??... More

As a stranger to Provincetown, I had no idea what to expect when we saw the Lobster Pot from the street, however we listened to the advice of friends and went in. Our server was friendly, our food was out in less than 10 minutes after sitting and it was delicious and affordable. Would recommend in a heartbeat to ANYONE... More

My wife and I had lunch there on July 25, 2014, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Excellent stuffed lobster, and phenomenal view of the ocean. Even though they were extremely busy, our food and service was excellent and timely.

Everything is good and well priced, the staff is cheerful and efficient. The bisque is to die for... But the dishes with panko have too much panko...lobster raviolis...

Lovely service. Long wait, but that's what they told us, and the food was decent. Great place for a whole lobster. Wouldn't go back, but was definitely glad for the visit!

We always eat at the Lobster Pot at least once every visit to P-Town. This is a well managed restaurant and no matter how busy they are, the service is always very professional. They turn the tables over quickly without rushing you. The house specialty drinks are awesome and the food is consistently good. We had oysters, and the scallop... More

The Lobster Roll was full of Lobster meat and was very tasty. I'm not a mayo fan and didn't find it overdressed. Wish the bun had been toasted so it can hold up a bit better. The Meal was still the bomb, and the clam chowder was the best I've ever tasted. The Watermelon Mojito was awesome and refreshing. Next... More

Great restaurant in Ptown, recommended by our hotel. Enjoyed the lobster tremendously and the specialty drinks. Ask to sit upstairs for a nice view of the water.

This is the place to go if you want a whole lobster. They are live in a tank as you go in, and you can have traditional boiled, or baked or grilled. Very busy, but no problem getting an upstairs window seat at 3.30 in the afternoon for a very late lunch. Well worth it and great fun.

The Lobster Roll with Potato Salad for the price is worth every penny (around $17). They give you lots of Lobster Meat on a soft hotdog roll, we loved it. We had a great end seats at the bar upstairs with a view of the ocean. Honestly, if you are coming here you must sit upstairs at the bar if... More
