Cool storefront, inside ordinary

Love the garish outside and crowded downstairs tiny tables, much more fun than the upstairs inside. Truthfully, I like the little outside lobster place down the street under the awning better. So much chatter and standing in line to sit upstairs. Rather claustrophobic.

Looks are sooo deceiving when it comes to this restaurant. Outside looks like a small crowded spot, but inside and just down a short hallway, it opens to a huge two story restaurant with ocean views and outdoor seating available. Worth any wait they may have, which has always been minimal for us even in the heights of the summer... More

This place is an institution on Cape Cod and if you want a good cup of Chowder and Lobster, join the crowd at the Pot. It would actually be fun to know how many Lobsters are served each week because when you walk by tables, everyone either has a Lobster Roll or steamed plate. You may have to wait in... More

The Lobster Pot is a Provincetown icon. If lobsters are your thing, the salt water tanks make sure that the freshest lobster avail in any size can be cooked just the way you like it. Since I am somewhat on the lazy neat side, the pan lobster is always my choice, but I have been known to tackle some of... More

I want to eat my lobster in a lobster shack where you can dig in and get wet. The lobster was good, the atmosphere 'shackie' and fun. Enjoy

We have spent the last three vacations in Provincetown Massachusetts. At least two or three times during our three week vacation we have eaten at the lobster pot. We have never had anything but a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

I still remember the Lobster Pot from 20 years ago when it was filled with blue hairs getting chowder at lunchtime. This is not the Lobster Pot today. It is a bustling, energetic place for LOBSTER. While there is a huge selection, it is where you get a good Lobster lunch (roll, or appetizer) or a steamed/stuffed whole lobster for... More
