We stopped here for lunch on a busy day but got a seat at the bar immediately. I had a bloody Mary because it seemed to be the most popular drink and for good reason! They make their own mix and infuse the vodka for a slightly spicy, potent drink. My husband started with a bowl of Lobster bisque... read more

We figured we'd try this local landmark and were not expecting mush as we figured it would be a tourist trap......WRONG!!! It had the best seafood chowder and a really great and reasonably priced lobster salad. Will go back for sure.. We actually had take out and ate the same stuff on the beach a day later.

We sat upstairs with good views of P'Town Harbor and boats at the dock. We each had lobster avocados with melon chunks and shared a Caesar salad (heavily dressed, would ask for dressing on side next time). Busy restaurant even on a Tuesday evening. Fairly priced, considering the area.

The food was fabulous, the bread, the children's cheeseburgers and the adult's various lobster dishes. Good coffee too, but what we really will remember was Rick's attentivness and service mindedness. He is a gem!

Prices have sky rocketed. A big rip off. Too bad because it was our tradional stop for lunch but now we'll find another restaurant to try. Plus, there's too many other places on the Cape that offer a good value and great food.

Four adults and one 41/2 year old just had lunch here. Pleasant interior with view to the harbor. Excellent service. Fairly standard seafood menu with a couple of surprises. I had a very good spicy lobster taco; my son-in-law had a wonderful lobster panini that had lots of large pieces of lobster in it; belly clam roll did not have... More

The Lobster Pot is a must-visit restaurant while in P-town. The food is delicious, the service is very laid back yet professional and the view is priceless.

We visited the Lobster Pot based on previous reviews and were very pleased that we did so. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was absolutely incredible. The drinks, appetizers and the entrees were absolutely perfect and we really enjoyed our dinner there. I highly recommend a visit to the Lobster Pot if you are in Provincetown.

I have had good meals here and just average meals here. I have had great service (usually the staff from Jamaica) and really off service (like this last time). The last time I ate here, just a few days ago, our waiter got our entire order wrong. Our Russian Oysters never arrived until we reminded him and then they came... More

If you are a seafood lover then the lobster pot is a must! Various sizes of lobster cooked in numerous different ways all as fresh and tasty as possible is just the starting point. There are so many different dishes which will satisfy any seafood craving.
