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

The line can get pretty long for the Lobster Pot in Provincetown, but it's definitely worth the wait! The food is amazing. I am not a fan of chowder, but the others in our group agreed their clam chowder was one of the top 2 in Ptown. Try to get a table upstairs for a great view. Lobster rolls were... More

Man this place is always jamming. Tried to get in on a Saturday night and it was a 2 hour wait. If you head in at off main meal times, head upstairs and get a great view with your meal. We didn't have to wait when we went to lunch at 11:30. Waitstaff is great. Everyone is super nice and... More

Walking and shopping Commercial Street, you will definitely work up a good appetite! I highly recommend you have your meal here. The seafood is absolutely fresh, and exquisite. When it comes to seafood, they're the best. I always order the Surf & Turf but all the dishes are scrumptious. Service is excellent, prices are fair for a popular vacation spot.... More

In the season you have to be patient for a table, but the wait is worth it for the food- especially the lobster (of course!) They have a paging system if you want to wander a block or so but when busy it may be best to wait in viewof the front desk ;-) Lots of staff and they move... More

I have been in town 4 nights and 3 of those have ended with me taking home their Portuguese soup and clam chowder. Enough said! Fast. Consistent. Hot. Excellent food. Tonight I met Sean and he gave me a free Blue Moon. I appreciate a family owned business and all they do for the customers.

We tried the Lobster Pot after finding it on Trip Advisor. The food was ok but really nothing special. The view from the upstairs is very nice. The waitress was friendly and helpful with recommendations. The clam chowder was delicious! Unfortunately the food was just so so.

We ate at the Lobster Pot last Sunday and we were delighted with the meal and the service. The restaurant was bustling but there were plenty of servers. We were greeted with a smile from the hostess and quickly seated. Within a few minutes we had our beverage in our hands and our lunch ordered. The lobster panini sandwich was... More

This is a MUST for lunch or dinner when in P'town! The best clam chowder on The Cape. The staff is true New England and they are great!
