Very expensive. Small portions. Slow service. Originally out of business. Bought by two customers. Reopened. Sold 1 1/4 lobsters as 1 3/4. No wonder they are gone again.

The Lobster Pot offered a special for Thanksgiving Dinner, as many do on this special day. The price was reasonable and the food was wonderful.

I was looking for a nce dinner and don't usually care too much about the atmosphere, but I think this one deserves commenting. The outside looks like an old fish camp style restaurant. With all the great reviews, I hoped the interior would perhaps be at least charming. It is in serious need of an update. It smells musty and... More

Don't be fooled. This place looks like a small run down coastal house but on the inside its high end dining. Great food with good service. Valet parking if wanted, and a small bar in the back.

This restaurant was recommended to us in the hot tub at our condo. We went on a Wed evening in April and there were very few diners there. Three out of the four of us were convinced that we didn't like lobster, but after the entres were served, an extra Lobster tail was ordered! We had 3 appetizers, the best... More

This restaurant was quite far from the Don Cesar hotel where we were staying, but recommended by the hotel, so we were looking forward to it. The front room did not impress me and I refused to sit by the entrance. Just around the corner were two nice tables and I am not sure why we were not seated there... More

Went with my boyfriend in March. He loved his meal of African lobster, shrimp and steak. I had the salmon with small red potatoes. My salmon was over cooked and one of the potatoes was rotten inside. Also the service was just slow. Maybe it was just a bad night.

We stopped in on Thursday night. We do not had reservation but was not problem. The owner was very friendly. Our server was very professional. Food was very good, was nicely presented but quite pricey. If you are looking for a nice (expensive) restaurant this is the place. The décor is very nice and interesting, old fashion look. We will...

We used to look forward to eating here when we visited the area. We were disappointed this time. The restaurant used to be high end but this time the service was not high end and the food was not what we remember. We will not be back.
