Love the Early Bird specials!!

Enjoyed our dinner. We got their just in time for the Early Bird specials and we were very impressed. Nice sized portions and very tasty food. Salad was very fresh. We would recommend it to friends/family.

Had broiled haddock but I would stake my life on it it was cod....questioned it, they said it was haddock...I seriously doubt it...ordered red potatoes got baked potatoes. Service slow Noise level unreal and we were seated next to a booth full of cleaning supplies and junk...not a great atmosphere.

The food did not taste fresh, the clams were filthy and gritty. Our waitress was very good. However, we witnessed another waiter clear a table, pick up used napkins from that table and wipe down the soda dispenser and bar with those used napkins. Shortly after, this same waiter went to refill a customers soda and dipped the used cup... More

We read a few reviews of the seafood places in LG an after a few scary ones we decided on The Lobster Pot. The place was busy, as it was peak season, but we got a seat quickly. Nice dining room and bustling. Had the shrimp cocktail which was enormous and pretty good. Sauce could have had a bit more... More

Great food, grea people. If you want a nice dinner stop in here they have a little of everything. Service can be a little slow during the dinner rush but we found worth the wait. (Look for coupons in the the visitors guides 10% off)

Went to The Lobster Pot our first night in Lake George. What a disappointment. We were seated at a table directly across from a pile of supplies and the vacuum cleaner. Really? There isn't a place outside the dining room for that. The lobster bisque was bland and if there was lobster in it, I couldn't find it. I ordered... More

Yes, Lobster from Maine. Sweet, tender, yummy. Tons of vegetables, choice of potato side. Melt in your mouth lobster, great clams, bacon wrapped scallops, Great staff, patient with kids even. Wait staff is always rushing and cheerful. There is even a lazy man's (or woman's) lobster completely removed from its shell. Yes, I'll be there every time i am in... More

We had dinner with steamed lobster and the broiled platter. Food was very good. Scallops cooked just right. Lobster was tender. Waitress was very good. I would go back.

Did you ever try to eat lobster with three flies flying around your head If I would have went to the bathroom first I would have not eaten at the lobster pot

Recently visited on our vacation to Lake George and ate here. Had a large party of 10, server was excellent, food was great. Little pricey but worth it! Not a lot of great restaurants in Lake George, definitely make this a stop!
