I have Celiac Disease & was at first pleasantly surprised to see that the menu had symbols next to items that should be safe for the gluten free diner. So after telling the waitress that I had Celiac & needed my food to be gluten free I ordered the Lobster Saute. It arrived with a few slices of bread right... More

Great lobster (especially the grilled lobster sandwhich) and seafood on the waterfront! We go every year and love it!

We have been to the Lobster Pot Restaurant in Bristol, Rhode island numerous times, each time the experience has been especially grand. We love the place, the scenic view over Bristol Harbor and Narragansett Bay only adds even more to the wonderful ambiance that you notice the minute you enter the foyer. The outside deck offered dance music and an... More

Food, service, view, can't be beat. If you're coming to Bristol don't miss the Lobster Pot. Easy access and parking.

What a great place to enjoy a fine meal with a top notch view. Looking out from our window side table, we were overlooking the bay with several boats moored just off the restaurant property. We were there before sunset, but I could imagine the great sunset view as you look over the Bay towards the west. When you go... More

I think some people shy away from going here because they think it's "Fancy & Expensive". Well it is somewhat expensive but it's not fancy. We went on a Sunday afternoon and they guys wore golf shirts/shorts/Jeans I wore a casual skirt with a tshirt. All of our meals and the apps were really good, but $17 for steamers, $25... More

I live in Ky. so going to the beautiful town of Bristol, R.I. and sitting next to the ocean is just wonderful. The Lobster Pot chowders are the best and being able to have lunch outside and look at the beautiful view of the ocean is well worth the trip. I make it a point to visit there everytime I... More

I have only gone for the lobster. I have tried three different types, but only found it to be average. The high prices take away from the rating. The view is very nice, as it's right on the bay. Next time a visitor wants to go, I'll try something different. Spoiled by some of the other great seafood places in... More

The view is lovely, the fish the freshest and the tables are nicely laid. The only thing that prevents me for calling it excellent is that the prices are to high. Otherwise, you can't beat it.
