“Pretty good food, great service, high prices”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

My family and I visited on a busy July evening, but we were seated promptly. I ordered the clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, and salmon over greens. The shrimp was average and the chowder sub-par for the area. My entree was enjoyable, but for $28 it certainly didn't impress. The seafood in New Bedford is high quality and less expensive. I would like to note that our server had great timing and did her job well. I am likely to try other restaurants next time we visit P-town, but this is a quintessential stop so we gave it a try.

Sorry you where somewhat dissappointed with your dining experience on your recent visit to the Lobster Pot. It should be noted that our Clam Chowder is the gold winner in the Cape Cold Life's "best of" for over thirteen years along with four & three time winners of the Cape Cod Chowder Festival & Boston Chowder Festival respectively. Sorry you did not enjoy this award winning chowder. Regarding pricing...our menu is priced in line with restaurants in the area & we make sure that our customers do not consider us "over-priced", but sorry that you feel that was the case. Thanks you for your input...The Lobster Pot Restaurant

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

There was a huge queue for a table which is usually a good sign! We waited in the bar enjoying excellent Bloody Mary's chatting with the friendly staff & other guests...so the wait became painless.

The menu was vast, we were brought a bread basket filled with acselection of wonderful bread as well as a salad bowl & selection of fresh dressings made in-house. We ordered soft shell crab to start, which was delicious, I ordered bouillabaisse with a side order of half lobster. The food was delicious, fresh fish perfectly cooked. The rest of our party also enjoyed their food, the lobster being the real star of the show though.

A great place to enjoy fresh, delicious food, with a beautiful view of the beach in a pleasantly buzzy atmosphere!

“Good food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We loved the view but the food was not amazing. The lobster bisque and clam chowder were very bad but the bouillabaisse and Cajun chicken sandwich were delicious.

“Fair”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Great location and atmosphere. Very busy but competent wait staff. The food was fair at best. The large lobsters were overcooked, and the drawn butter didn't taste like real butter. The New England clam chowder was way below average.
