Anegada is beautiful.... this place is not. You must order food at lunchtime for the dinner service (with “service” being an overstatement). Arrive at 7:30, meal comes out in pieces. The freshly caught lobster has been destroyed by a massive “bbq” of driftwood (yuck) and...More

We had no reservations which are required. Fortunately they were able to squeeze in our party of two. The dinner of anegada lobster was amazing! The staff was cordial, friendly and efficient. truly a spectacular experience.

The reservation is necessary. During reservation the dishes have to be choosen as well (probably in case of lobster). Lobsters are excellent, why choose any other?

Stopped here for some of the biggest and freshest lobster I've ever had, only to find out that they smoked it over what amounted to driftwood. It was terrible. Even so I was looking forward to hanging out with friends on our vacation of a...More

Consider making reservations AND making your dinner order early in the day (we did so when we arrived at Anegada) at Potters. We asked locals and were told "Potters is the best lobster, but service is slow." However, we had excellent, fast service; and the...More

Best dinner of the week at Potters By the Sea!! It was a perfect evening low humidity, slightly cool, sitting on a dock watching the sunset. And the food was outstanding! Reservations and orders are required by 4pm because the seafood is sourced locally and...More

They solicit. Sam the cook will meet you in the mooring field and sing you song. You still need to call them with reservations by 430.
