The best lobster panini !!! Clams were very good. Good drinks. Very crowed and long waits at times but worth the wait.

“Amazing views and amazing seafood”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

If you have the opportunity to sit in the upstairs deck of this restaurant go for it! You can watch the boats come in which enjoying some of the best clam chowder and fried fish around. The restaurant is always busy but there never seems to be a wait. They have a large menu and kids are welcome.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

I am giving the Lobster Pot three stars out of consideration of previous good meals there. The lobster roll that I had for lunch yesterday rated one star. Craving a lobster roll, I chose the Lobster Pot because I knew the lobster would be fresh. Was it? I have no idea. The lobster was overwhelmed by a fat bun, a lot of lettuce and probably as much mayo in the lobster salad as there was lobster. It was a total disappointment. The potato salad that accompanied the roll also had way too much mayo.

“Good, but expensive....but EVERYTHING is expensive in Ptown!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Since this restaurant is particularly pricey, we saved it for our combined anniversary and birthday celebration. Our server was Charlie, and we was sweet and attentive. I have to say, the service is exceptional at the Lobster Pot. I don't think it's just Charlie from what I saw, but Charlie did 'connect' with us and even recognized us on the street two other times while we were still in town and wished us a happy anniversary. The food is very good and the view of the water from the dining room is exceptional. It's quite a special experience, but because of the price, we did need to save it for just that... a special occasion.
