The owners of our bed-and-breakfast highly recommended the lobster pot as a place to eat in Provincetown. And we were not disappointed! The claim chowder was excellent, and deserving of all the awards it has received. We split a house salad (they provide four excellent homemade dressings) and shrimp scampi, and both were excellent. A selection of three breads were... More

We were visiting Provincetown since we hadn't been up there in about 7 years and we had to have lunch at the Lobster Pot since we had a great time the last time we were there. Initially they seated us downstairs and it was so busy I felt I really wanted to sit upstairs like we did last time. I... More

I was not disappointed in stopping by the Lobster Pot! We were seated upstairs and had a great view of the Harbor and Marina. I loved seeing the boats and the water. The clam chowder was perfect! Great stop for a refreshing drink and some "Chowda"!

We are on the Cape in May, and again in September.... and we always make at least 2 stops each time at the "Pot." Never had to wait, and always had a great meal.

There's a reason this is a P-Town institution and my Cape friend's favorite restaurant. Delicious, innovative food and great service. I tried the Asian Boullibaise this time and it was so huge and good that we took the wonderful broth & noodles home (there was lots!!) to recycle for another meal. It was loaded with seafood which I mostly gorged... More

The restaurant is set on a pier overlooking the harbor with views to 3 sides. Very crowded during my visit, but service was still excellent as they are used to being very busy. My food, fried shredded clams were excellent-succulent and fried perfectly, crispy golden and not over cooked as this dish is sometimes served. Other patrons' dishes were beautifully... More
