I've had the pleasure of traveling to many countries and many Caribbean Island. As well as owning a restaurant in the BVI. This restaurant has the BEST Lobster I've had in the U.S. and other foreign countries. The owner is there to greet you and tempt your taste buds with a great intro to the food. The service was wonderful,... More

Well my friends I was traveling with wanted lobster and wanted to sit down to eat it. So we came here and waited 45 minutes to sit down and eat and the place is like a assembly line. The lobsters although tasty were sitting in so much water when brought to the table they might as well left them in... More

We had an awesome lunch while looking at the water and sipping watermelon mojitos. I had the lobster bisque (shared it as it is very rich), and steamed lobster with mussels and corn on the side. The bread basket had freshly baked rolls, pumpkin cake and crisp flat breads (the rolls with the bisque was divine). My husband had the... More

We visit Provincetown often and we always stop at the Lobster Pot for dinner, sometimes more than once in a week's time. It's that delicious! Try the Portuguese fish and be sure to try their salad dressing combos.

Fell in love with this place last year, it was a highlight we were looking forward to on this trip and we were not disappointed. Exteremly organized and well-suited to meet and greet throngs of tourists and the food and service are nothing short of phenominal. I didn't even like N.E. Clam Chowder before my first visit last year and... More

First come, first seated at this restaurant. Two floors of seating and if you're lucky enough to get a window seat on the second floor, you'll have great views of the bay. The oysters Rockefeller stole the appetizer show, but that's not to say the blackened shrimp doesn't deserve a mention too. The Cajun Bouillabaisse was so tasty as well... More

I was surprised the Lobster Pot was still busy at 2:30 in the afternoon. We were seated immediately in the back overlooking the water. I had the Lobster Scampi. Delicious lobster sauteed in butter tossed with fresh veggies over angel hair pasta. All I can say is yum yum yum. We were served our food promptly and our waitress was... More

Liked the view from our table on the top floor that overlooked the Provincetown harbor and the separate Gluten-free menu. Also, the service was great. The gluten free lobster and crab cob salad was just so-so. So my rating is so-so.

Best food ever! I had the Oysters with caviar and lobster roll, the best ever. Prices were fair as well. The breads they give are amazing. Oyster Rockefellar melted in your mouth. Yum
