We went for a Friday lunch ( a party of 4) and were greeted in the parking lot with empty cardboard boxes cascading from the door to the kitchen. There was also a cardboard wine carton on the parking lot on the other side of the restaurant as we approached the outside entrance to the deck. We were seated at... More

OK, so the food is overpriced and service is slow. Still, go for the view from the patio which is gorgeous. Looking out at the water, distant shorelines, and boats makes it worth while. I arrived around 4:30 pm on Sunday and was treated to an excellent musician singing and playing the guitar, nice relaxing songs that made the long... More

I was there a year ago and the food wasn't nearly as good as I remember. I was surprised to see such a low rating as compared to other Bristol restaurants, now O know why, The oysters Rockefeller and clams casino were not very good

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

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
