Found this place on IG after my Daughter moved to the Cape for work. It’s worth the hype. Cool location, staff was friendly, service was great as well as the food. Highly recommend the Lobstah Sandwich! Grab a cool hoodie or T-shirt too!

We stopped here right after our whale watching boat tour. They were said to have prize winning clam chowder, so I had the chowder in the bread bowl... very tasty! The view is great and staff is friendly!

Visited before whale watching. Quick service for sit-down dining, but the food was average at best and was overpriced. Nice view, and friendly waitstaff.

First time back in 5+ years, quite a letdown. They have a systematic approach to seating and turning over tables, our server pushing immediately for order placement with emphasis on “famous dishes”. We had scallops gratin, which was great but fish of the day Halibut was not great and I asked for pan fried Cod, got deep fried Cod ….. our server messed up but not a big deal, he mentioned it to the manager and he responded, “offer them a free dessert”. Price tag for this journey $150, not including tip. Tourist trap. If u go, go all in and get Lobster!

We ate here because of the high #4 rating and the hype. The service was excellent but the food was just average. My wife had the chowder and a lobster egg roll. The chowder was very good but the egg roll was greasy so she only ate the filling. I had the hot lobster roll, which was not hot but just served with hot butter. The lobster was mostly tail meat and on the tough side. I expected a restaurant that features lobster would know how to cook it correctly. I wondered how it would be when I saw such an extensive menu. Skip it as there are better options in town.

There was a large group of us on Tuesday for lunch. The service was excellent, the drinks were good as were the bread, rolls and sides. Most of us ordered the hot lobster roll. Everyone complained that the lobster was tough and chewy. I would not go back.

With lobsters fresh from our own tanks, delivered from lobstermen 100 yards from our door we're very surprised that the folks from Michigan didn't enjoy their Lobster Rolls. We appreciate the four stars and hope you will find something more to your liking next time you visit our community.

We saw this was a highly recommended spot here in Provincetown off a couple tik toks and it did not disappoint! We had the lobster bisque, clam chowder, hot lobster roll, fried Cod, grilled stuffed chicken and the gluten free lobster grilled cheese! Our gluten free group member felt there was a wide variety and selection for her to choose from on the separate gluten free menu as well! Our individual ratings for each meal: Fish & chips- 10/10 Hot lobster roll - 9.5 / 10 Stuffed Grilled Cheese - 8.5/10 Lobster Bisque - 10/10 Clam chowder- 9.5/10 Gluten free lobster grilled cheese- 8.5/10 Potato salad (mayonnaise base) sides were a 10/10 also!

They live up to the name. Lobster bisque was excellent. We also had the grilled cheese lobster sandwich… really good. Filled with enough lobster. It did not disappoint. Our waiter was very attentive. The service was overall good and ambiance was nice. Not too loud.

My boyfriend and I stopped in on a whim. The wait staff was exceptionally helpful, quick, and kind. The seafood was delicious. I got the broiled lobster… I wish I could eat that every single day!

It seems to be cafeteria food. It’s just way too expensive for what you get. I believe all the buses stop here. I felt like I was herded in

Went based on reviews and it didn't disappoint. Best lobster on our whole trip - and we started in Maine. The warm lobster roll was great. Even the sides, the bread, and potatoes were good. The atmosphere made it worth going - ate outside on a chilly day with the covers down and the view was wonderful. The staff - all of them - from the hostesses who put up with us while we waited for the rest of our party - to our wonderful waitress - were exceptional and friendly.

Worth the price. Exceeded expectations. Excellent food and service. Neat that you pass through the lobster aquarium and kitchen on the way to your seat. Great view of beach from our table. The MA award winning NE chowder in bread bowl lived up to its name. The roast lobster in sherry sauce was exceptional. We ate one clam chowder each, shared a 2lb lobster and drank club soda. Our bill was around $115 before tip.

Great spot with really good food. The staff is super friendly and helpful. A little pricey but everything on the Cape is because it's fresh and it's lobster. Lovely views too.

The freshness of the seafood. Lobster rolls and oysters tasted like they were caught right before they were served on a platter. So fresh, so simple, yet so tastefully sweet The watermelon mojito was just as refreshing that it tasted like summer in a glass. There is no comparison to the oysters Rockefeller. Sweet and delicious. Nothing elsewhere can compare. It actually served as my dessert! Service felt like sitting down at the family table. It didn't matter what was placed in front of me because I knew it would be fabulous, yet the heartful kindness and welcoming atmosphere made our meal feel like we were eating at home. If they pushed all of the tables together and invited all guests to join as one party, I think everyone would have joined in. That's special. The owner introduced us to his backyard, which was a sandy beach with a mesmerizing view. I could have stayed and stared all day. Thank you to our new friends at the Lobster Pot, whom we will be seeing again when we return to PTown.
