Without the Location...All theve got is reputation – I will say this place has by far the best bloody mary I have ever had...But thats about it. The food is not worth the time, effort, or money. Should you eat here if you havent yet...Sure, But there is "actual" food, that doesnt come from a frozen bag down the street. You want really good, fresh food, try Devons, Edwidge, The Central House, Ross Grill and even Jimmy's Hideaway.

The Pot isn't just a tourist favorite; locals love it, too. – The Scene
The Lobster Pot looks like a tourist trap, feels like a tourist trap, sometimes even acts like a tourist trap, but isn't anything of the sort. The Pot, as locals call it, serves some of the finest seafood in town, with a menu that is certainly the most extensive. So fresh is the fish that you could call it Legal Sea Foods South, only with more options.

The Food

Most folks order lobster, which is prepared pan-roasted (with the flavor seared into the meat and served in an open shell), baked and stuffed, broiled, scampi-style or with Newburg sauce. You won't go wrong with the shellfish Algarve, served with shrimp, mussels, clams, scallops, calamari and oysters in a spicy garlic and red pepper bouillabaisse over thin noodles. Then again, you might prefer the blackened tuna sashimi, or perhaps the Greek sole, filled with spinach, onion, almonds, black olive and feta cheese.

fantastic service and even more spectacular food – This is one of the best dinners my boyfriend and I have had. Everything from drinks to salads to apps to entrees was perfect. Our waitress provided just the right touch of service - inquiring gently but not pushy. The service throughout the restaurant was nicely orchestrated. I had the cajun boullabaise and he had the lobster clambake. The couple next to us has been eating there for the last 15 years--sometimes lunch and dinner! The food was so good that I bought the cookbook. The only downer was that I was too full for dessert!

Doesn't Get Better Than This! – My wife and I agree with all the positive reviews of this restaurant. The seafood is excellent, the service was good, and the view of the bay is as good as any we have seen. Plus the price wasn't bad either! We liked it so much, we ate lunch and dinner there on the day we visited. A must if you are in Provincetown!

A BEST BET IN P-TOWN – I always make it a point to visit the Lobster Pot when I'm in Provincetown. The food is of the highest quality and you can't beat the view! It's a great place for family and friends to meet for a great seafood experience. It can get a little loud, so your out of luck if a romantic dinner for two is what you're looking for.

I went to the Lobster Pot on the strength of some restaurant review or another. I read somewhere that people make pilgrimages to the Lobster Pot for their chowder. Now I can't find the source to add my own 2 cents but I shall do so here. I'd rather eat elsewhere. The clam chowder and lobster bisque we started with were sad versions of what we've had in comparable places. The bisque was a bit weak (where's the lobster?) and the chowder recalled Morton's. I suppose I don't care for the iodine flavor. To their credit, the appetizer sampler had a nice variety of seafood (clams casino, calamari, shrimp). The cod fish and chips were a generous portion of flaky fried fish. Perhaps we didn't order the right entrees (didn't want to do lobster for lunch so thought that the bisque would hint at the quality of food). . .

best seafood in p'town – I love this place and eat at least three meals in the course of a week's vacation here. Great food (Love the fried scallops, the lobster bisque and the chowder).
