Lobster Pot

My wife and I ate there a couple of years ago and we enjoyed it. This recent visit was not the best, long wait at the door, and we sat at the bar which shortened the wait. We waited about 10 or so minutes before we were given menu's. I had the Scungilli, Calamari and Mussels over pasta, my wife... read more

I stopped here for supper one night while traveling through the area. The service was fast and the food was good. Plus it was in walking distance of my hotel which was a plus, so I didn't have to move the car.

The menu was not appealing. We should have left and not order, but not much was open on a weeknight. The food way way over priced. We both had the lobster & clam dinner. The clams were tiny and sandy. The lobster was cold and small. The corn tasted and looked like it had been reheated multiple times. They were... More

Ate at the Lobster Pot twice during my visit to upstate New York. Both times, food was delicious. Good variety on the menu, so even if you don't like lobster, there are many options available.

This place is way overrated and too expensive for the quality of seafood. I guess I am a bit spoiled being from New England where the best seafood is available. Service was okay. Was hard pressed to find our server to get the bill and then had to wait forever for him to return so we could pay. It seems... More

Ok, but not special. Great chowder. Waitress seemed rushed. Food was average. I understand that we were there at the end of the season. That may account for the service. It felt like they were more in rush to turn tables over. Food arrived before we finished our soup. Since one meal was fried seafood, it made it difficult to... More

Hubby and I went here for our anniversary dinner last weekend. Arrived around 7pm and we were seated right away. Mostly seafood (a given)...we ordered the prime rib and broiled seafood platter. We had the clam chowder & lobster bisque and both were very good. The prime rib was excellent and the shrimp & scallops from the platter were also... More
