Waitress was slow with drinks and food, but food and soup was just so amazing. Obviously exspensive, but the food is so worth it.

You should enjoy this locally owned and kitchen operated seafood resturant. Outdoor or indoor dining,cabana bar and on site parking is a rarity in Lake George. We had fresh shucked oysters, clams and shrimp. Calamari and crab cakes were also good. The waitstaff is busy and considering just seasonal, works hard to deliver good service.

I decided to take the family to the Lobster Pot because it was beautiful night and the outside seating is appealing. However, the food was not good and it was expensive. At that price, I expect the food to be somewhat artfully prepared. It was not. I put this restaurant in the tourist trap category.

Normally i don't write comments at all, but the exsperience we had was terrible. Outside the Lobster Pot looked ok. But once you are inside distater starts: wating 10-15 min to get a servant at the table, after 15 min receiving a not so fresh salad, then after 45 min the main course, we have asked for it several times....

$90 bill for bagged salad and frozen vegetables. Cannot and will not accommodate gluten free even though the only starches available are potatoes. I don't think they actually make anything they serve. Never again!

This is our third visit to this establishment as we have visited Lake George the past few summers. We always have good service and good food. We love the lobster along with the pasta and seafood. You can dine in or outside.

A wide ranging, American Style, menu plus lots of lobster choices. The food came quickly, tasted great, and the staff was very attentive.

I don't understand all the negative reviews for this place. I had dinner here with a large group last weekend and everyone loved their meals. A lot of us had the surf & turf combo, I chose the prime rib and the whole lobster ($45). The prime rib was very good... and huge. The lobster was delicious, claws and tail... More

I ordered the lazy man lobster for $38. What was served to me seemed like leftover lobster from someone else's dinner with a bunch of claw meat thrown in. No lobster tail whatsoever. Don't waste your money!
