Best lobster bisque.

Usually go for dinner. Decided to do lunch this time. Wonderful .. The lobster bisque is even good on a hot day! Everyone works in sync. 3 stars bc I hate tables too close & small bathrooms! Go.

I went on Memorial Day weekend so it was CRAZY busy. The wait was 1 hour 45 min. Yes that's very very long but keep in mind that it's located in a lovely street, filled with a bunch of cool little shops, souvenir shops, eateries etc. so you can put down your name and come back. You'll easily spend that... More

Stopped in to grab a bite on Memorial Day. I wasn't too hungry, so I just had a bowl of Portuguese Soup. The soup itself was very tasty with kale, carrots, potatoes and red kidney beans. But there was no chorizo or linguica as advertised! Rather disappointing. My husband had the Seafood Cobb Salad. The portion of crab salad and... More

We liked it so much we ate there three times, two lunches and one dinner. Awesome food, menu and staff. Jim, Michael,and Bryan were the best. One of the owners, Sean was super nice. What a great place. Made the trip special.

My girlfriend and I had a very nice lunch in this restaurant. The crawl chowder in bread bowl and the fried calamari were very tasty. The lobster roll was good, but the salmon wasn't a highlight and was served with too much greens for my tasting. We arrived at around 1:30pm, so we were seated upstairs to a table near... More

Having visited Provincetown many times over the years, I have found The Lobster Pot to be a necessary tradition during my stay. This time we stayed 4 nights and ate at Lobster Pot three times. The Chowder is not to be believed, absolutely the best I have ever had. All the fish dishes and the lobster rolls and whole lobsters... More
