Don't be afraid of going to this restaurant because the parking lot isn't crowded. The people are all friendly and helpful. The food is very good especially the twin lobster dinner. The prices will fit all budgets. No reservations needed and the prices are reasonable.

We were intrigued by the twin lobsters for $20. Hubby and son ordered them. Son's lobsters were over-boiled so the shells were tough for him to crack. I had the salmon. Meh. Not sure I'd go back. Waitstaff was very attentive.

There were only 3 cars when we arrived. We were greeted nicely and sat quickly. Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. The food was overpriced. Since it was over priced, my wife and I ordered steak tips. They weren't tips...they were, I don't know. They were so big, they weren't tips. To this day, I don't know what kind... More

Skipped on Arnolds in Eastham which had an hour long line, remembered getting decent lobster at the Lobster Pound so we went. The sign out front said twin lobster $19:95 and jerk chicken, the chicken being something my wife would like. Went in to a nearly empty place. Ordered the twin lobster which turned out to be A La Carte,... More

I've eaten here several times over the years while in Orleans and it is always good. Friendly service, lobsters, and decent prices. Granted, you are going to shell out some big $$$ if you want to 6 pound lobster, but we had the twin lobsters for $19.95 and they were excellent. The boat full of lobsters is always a big... More

On way to airport in Boston after a good drive on the Cape there was Lobster Pound. I have not had a Clam Chowder so creamy and delicious ever and this was lunch! The lobster so sweet and all food just done up so delicious! Kids were content. And this is two little 3 and almost 2yr olds! Things there... More

We had eaten here a number of years ago and the food was quite good, although higher priced. This time things were much different. Service was quite slow and we had to ask the waitress for drinks. They advertise twin lobsters for $19.95, but it does not include sides which are about ten dollars extra. My wife had stuffed shrimp... More

We had an excellent meal and saw the sign for twin lobster so we stopped. Ordered a Sam Adams beer and came with chilled glass and poured in front of me. Nice touch. I had the twins and they were cooked to perfection with the butter and lemon on the side. Parents had shrimp plate and scallops. Both were plenty... More

Should have been tipped off by the fact there was only one car in the parking lot. We got appetizer of loaded potato skins, very bland and waitress never brought dishes for us to put them on. I got lobster bisque. If someone sells lobster bisque in the can, they certainly found that supplier and heated it for two minutes... More

We were tired and hungry however the service varied from poor to average. The food was tasty overpriced and the lobster roll was very small. Bring your binoculars.
