You know when you start with drinks and they are the best that you expect everything to continue the same. They truly do not disappoint! Breads delicious and I ordered little neck clams that were so sweet. I had the roasted lobster in herb butter and my husband had the lobster scampi with vegetables. Everything was perfection. Wonderful service and... More

Right in the middle of town, near MacMillan Pier, the Lobster Pot is easy to find. We got a table by a window. The food was delicious. The service a bit spotty as I guess we arrived at shift change time.

Pros: we got a good table with a nice view, waitress was helpful and prompt, husband loved the clam chowder, we got seated promptly Cons: the sandwich wraps were soggy before it got to the table, veggies had no flavor, pasta pesto was okay but there is way better dishes out there.

Rushed, touristy service. Cucumberita sounds good in the menu, but is cloying sweet. Buttered lobster roll is OK, but not exciting - a little bit dry and bland. Scampi, lobster bisque and claim chowder were all pretty good. Aircondition and a nice view of the beach and pier.

The lobster is delicious...even though you have to do all the cracking yourself. This is a very busy restaurant that does not take reservations. Turnover is rapid and the staff have the flow down perfect. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Nice view of the beach and bay.

I'm not much for going to the old "established" places because they tend to be stale and not very innovative with new dishes and cooking techniques. But I was coaxed to visit the Lobster Pot, and I was glad I went. First off... their menu is extensive. That's a good thing... and a bad thing. There is so much to... More

We admittedly did not get lobster, but for individual fish tacos ($14 each), bland orzo, and a few oysters, we spent way too much.

Lobster Pot never disappoints! We went three times during our most recent visit to P-town! The Bisque is amazing! The Lobster Newburg is a favorite of both us! Will be back to try even more deliciousness!
