“Good location; average food”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Had dinner with a family member this past week is establishment. The cod-cake appetizer was very good. We each order the 1.25 lb. lobster: one boiled and one broiled. Lobsters were nice; potatoes were good; cole slaw was OK , asparagus was exceptional. Service was very good.

“Fabulous for many reasons and every age.o”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The food and atmosphere are exactly what you want when visiting an island spot. The food is as delicious as any super high end eatery.You just don't have to aska lot of questions about the menu because you know what you are getting. Lobsters are perfect. The raw bar is amazing. Clams casino and steamers are must-haves! Tuesday buck a shuck is a not miss. Service is perfect when you understand how busy sometimes where you are is. By that I mean this place is so good for so many reasons if it's busy when you get there it's well worth the wait.

“Owner/manager treated us like we were from another planet and dismissed our child's needs for a special meal because if his food”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

The owner/manager has no passion for his restaurant. imagine taking your family here and having your needs be dismissed by the manager. He been less than accommodating to our sons needs. Food allergies. It's like we're all from another planet here. That's how he's treating our needs for our son which led to his very disappointing meal worst part the owner could give a damn!! Don't waist your money. Try another place in town. The manager/owner should be working at Howard Johnson's!!

“An Annual Right of Summer”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

It's not truly summer till you stop by the Pot after hanging out at the beach all day and have an amazing lobster dinner. Nothing better.

“Nice spot”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We went here with our three children on Sunday night and had a nice time. We went with the intention of having boiled Lobster and it was a good experience. The staff was very friendly but we had to wait a very long time to be seated. I think it was 45 minutes... We were told we would have to have 6 people to hold a reservation and we only had 5. Our waitress was very friendly
and took good care of us. It was an expensive night but that is what we expected. Food was very good.
