Thanksgiving Dinner

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.

Food was excellent. Service was above and beyond. Prices costly but good food is worth it. We go there when family comes in from out of town.

Overpriced, snooty restaurant with nothing to be snooty about. The waiter was worn out and tired. When we found out they were out of lobster, we should have left. Instead we ordered lobster bisque.

This Place is very small and the tables are kind of close together- but the food,service,and dining experience are well worth it. Caters to more of an "older crowd". Food is outstanding - call for reservations.

We ate here 6 years ago and have never went back because it was so bad. It's still there so maybe it has changed for the better.

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.

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
