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.

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...More
