Heading home from Cape Cod wanted to stop for lunch and had not been to the Lobster Pot, but we will definitely go again! We are seafood critics living on Boston's North Shore so we wouldn't say it was great if it wasn't. Understand - I am not sure about dinnertime, but at lunchtime it is cafeteria style - walk...

We went to The Lobster Pot but ordered fried clams. They were very good. Lobster for lunch wasn't reasonable since we wanted it hot not cold with mayo.

This is a very casual restaurant where you order at a counter and are given a number which is called when your food is ready. No frills but delicious, fresh seafood.

We stopped in on out way back home on the Cape. We've seen it advertised on local TV so gave it a try. As stated, lots of haddock, shrimp, scallops, whole belly clams and fries, plenty for two (cost is mid $30's). Whole belly clams however were mostly neck, but other than that, very good. You order at the counter... More

This is the go to restaurant for seafood. My wife and I find it worth the drive to go there on a regular basis. The food is awesome and cooked to order. There is always an owner on site. Family owned and well managed. The portions are decent and the prices are what you should expect for fresh caught seafood.... More

Love to go here for my seafood fix. Have not been disappointed with any of their offerings. Service is quick and restaurant is clean. Owners are always on hand and make it feel like home. Love it so much that we arranged with owners to have my Grandsons graduation party there.

Always our first stop on the way to the Cape. And always start the vacation with a bowl of clam chowder. Medium creamy thickness, lots of clams, delicious. Worth the stop. They have other seafood as well, but we really like the chowder.

Relatives who live in the area told me we had to stop there for lunch. This place buys directly from the fishing fleet and the steamer clams and lobster where superior to anything we tasted on Cape Cod and greater Boston. It's not fancy, but you pay for the food and not the ambiance. Highly recommended!

Excellent whole fried clams and the fish and chips is really delicious too. My daughter loves the clam chowder. I also get the steamers here and corn on the cob. Those are my favorites so I always get these same things so can't comment on anything else, unfortunately. But I really enjoy these - they are first rate.
