“Fresh fish and great bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

They the Bloody Mary and go for cocktails in the upstairs bar. It's fun and they have great apps. The seafood is delicious. Hey, there's a reason they have survived in a town of picky eaters where restaurants come and go. It's not fan y. And it's really good.

“Over-rated, sad to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten at the Lobster Pot in Provincetown many times over the last 25 years; in fact, we've made it a point to eat there every time we visit.

The ONLY thing that was good this time was the pumpkin bread, which was excellent -- but I love all things pumpkin.

I had a lobster roll, wh was a disaster: the lobster meat was SQUISHY, & didn't even taste particularly good. My spouse had a whole boiled lobster, wh was adequate.

The waiter was attentive & helpful.

The Lobster Pot is a P'town institution. It will survive w/out our business. Good thing, b/c we were terribly disappointed, & likely won't return. :(

“Good food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My husband and I, along with another couple, stopped in this restaurant while recently visiting Provincetown. It was a very busy day in town and all the restaurants were crowded. The hostess at the Lobster Pot was very friendly and promised to get us seated ASAP. We proceeded upstairs, picked up a drink at the bar and went out on the deck to enjoy the view. We were seated within 20 minutes and received quick service. The clam chowder was good as well as the lobster and scallops. It was noisy due to the crowd but we ended up chatting with a group at another table. Overall a pleasant experience.

“Fantastic Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We visit the Cape often, but this was our first visit to the Lobster Pot restaurant in Provincetown, and I think this is going to be a new tradition! It was a bit noisy in the restaurant since it was packed, but that didn't stop us from having a great dinner. Our seat was right next to the window and gave us some great views! And the food was delicious! The bread basket had different types of homemade break (pumpkin bread!) and the salad was fresh spinach with several dressings to choose from. My husband got clam chowder and seafood pesto and inhaled both of them! I got the asian bouillabaisse, and I don't think I've ever eaten anything as good as that for seafood!

Definitely recommended if you are in the area and would like a good meal at a great price!
