Classic and touristy with awesome food (and huge selection). Our best waiter in town. Classic lobster and just about any other seafood one would want. If eating out during the stay-- put the lobster pot on the list

Everytime we visit PTown we always make plans to dine at the Lobster Pot. It is never a disappointment. Just being at the waters edge with the views are perfect. Warren makes some delicious pumpkin bread!!! This place is a historic landmark. The food and service were wonderful.

This restaurant had been there forever and the food is fresh and good, not fantastic. The service is generally weak and the joint is crowded. Great views from upstairs though.

My family and I went to the Lobster Pot during our latest vacation.... In fact, we go here every time we come to the cape. The food is always great. We had the clambake, lobster, chowder, and the oysters. Everything was fresh and serviced in a timely fashion. The view from upstairs is breathtaking... It's in the heart of the... More

Was here 4 years ago so I rushed back for my lobster roll. I got the hot one and it was so dry. Clearly not enough butter. Potato salad was fabulous. Only went this one time this visit.

So I had a lobster roll everywhere they served them.. when you order a HOT lobster roll... you don't put lettuce on it! This was really nothing special, there were definitely much worse places than this, so I would still go back and try something different - some of the dinners looked very good.
