Delicious stuffed Lobster

We started with a dozen Little Neck Clams, followed by Calamari, both very good. We tried the Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder, excellent. The salads were also quite good. The stuffed lobster was great, filled with crab and scallops, and the claw meat. Our server was attentive and friendly. A... read more

I have been going to the Lobster Pot for many years. Feels like family. From lunches on the outdoor patio to a cocktail at the bar. Dinners. Love, love the view. I've eaten a good number of the meals.

My spouse and I stopped in here on a whim while visiting family on Father's Day. When my husband inquired if it was boiled or steamed we almost left bc he grew up only eating them steamed and I encouraged him to try it after the waitress assured him it was good. We both ordered a 2 lb lobster and... More

First time I have been back to the 'Lobster Pot" in many, many years. Unfortunately, not much has changed. The owners apparently think an upgrade of decor, food presentation or menu selection is not a necessary for increasing prices. I dine out, in the Newport, Bristol County (Both RI & MA) two to three times a week, the Lobster Pot... More

The view enhanced the food. If you are a tourist to NE you should enjoy this restaurant. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. She made good recommendations with the exception of the Indian Pudding.. too much molasses. The water girl kept our water glasses filled. We shared an order of casino which were average. Our oysters were... More

Beautiful water views of the bay. The evening we dined had a beautiful sunset. Excellent food, with a good variety...lobster, shrimp, scallops plus beef and chicken. Very friendly hostess and competent wait staff. Highly recommend.

Our visit was for lunch with extended family and although the food was decent; it missed the mark. The oysters were not shucked properly with shell bit fragments everywhere for starters. The wine list was just OK. We wanted to see local wine featured. The shrimp were tough from being over-cooked and not completely deveined which is unacceptable. The main... More

Celebrated a college graduation party in their private room. The service was impeccable, the food was a bit above average, and the prices were reasonable for what I ordered. The calamari was extremely fresh, lobster bisque was a bit salty but I had 2 large pieces of lobster meat. I ordered the lobster roll and it was very fresh and... More
