It was awesome. My Dad likes the fried fish, great table service and tartar sauce is awesome. I always get... More

The Lobster Pot has by far one of the best melted butter lobster rolls to date! The staff was friendly, the beer was cold and the wait wasn't long at all! Thumbs up to you Lobster Pot. I shall see you again soon!

This restaurant stands out but there are better restaurants in town. You can have just a good a lobster at most of the restaurants in town for less. This place is too busy and you can do better elsewhere.

The Lobster Pot is an iconic fixture in Ptown. This is one restaurant where you will find both visitors and locals dining next to each other. The quality of the food here is very good. The salads with homemade dressings are excellent and the bread basket is definitely better than average. Of course the seafood is wonderful and people rave... More

Great food and views. Try the portuguese fish if you're hungry or the spicy shrimp. Homemade salad dressings are delicious. A p-town tradition!

This restaurant has a great vibe and location right off the pier in town. I wanted my daughter to experience a traditional Cape Cod lobster dinner. We had no problem getting a table and the energy was lively and the staff very friendly. The lobster dinner was just average. We've had lots of lobster meals and this was about what... More

When visiting Provincetown this past fall we happened by this restaurant on Commercial Street. The line at the moment was short so we decided to stop and eat. We were so glad we did. The views, food, and service were great and the prices for lunch were reasonable. We hope to return someday for dinner during another visit. Be sure... More
