Decent food in a good location.

Busy restaurant with decent food in a good location. The staff was efficient but not curt and the food was fine. The day we were there a "woman" (I call her that since her behavior was not ladylike) came in demanding to be put at the front of the line because she had diabetes and didn't want to... read more

Great bar and entertaining Jamaican bartenders. Full service so you can get the same food as the dining room. They have a huge selection of appetizers and all really good.

We had the best lobster panni Saturday night - 2nd night open for the season. The place is sparkling clean and the servers are waiting for you! You must have lunch or dinner here on your visit to P-town - you won't regret it. Try the Cherry Soda!!

We have been to "The Pot" many times over the years and they never disappoint. Today we had the lobster taco and tuna sashimi wrap. Both were delicious! Let me just say that this is not an inexpensive restaurant, especially if you enjoy an alcoholic beverage with your meal. However, the food is delicious and the ambience is fun. Our... More

Every year we have gone to the Cape, we NEVER miss this restaurant. We have a beautifully glass framed 5X7 Pict. of The Lobster Pot Rest. on our display shelves in our living room. We think of this place often during the year.

I like that this place has a fun menu with lots to choose from. I have eaten just appetizers on several occasions. I am going back this year to try the caviar. The only downside to this place is it can get very busy and the tables can be very close together. But hey, for great food, I can suffer.... More

I had read amazing things about this place before deciding to give it a try and I must say, I have eaten the best lobster ever! Even though the restaurant was crowded, the service was really fast and very good. I would recommend this place to everyone.

The Lobster Bisque is worth trip alone. The oysters are my second choice. Don't know if I've ever had a full entre here as it can be quite crowded and a long wait for a table. Head to the bar upstairs. The bar staff and people at the bar are usually friendly, the view is great making it the perfect... More
