Thanks for your review on your recent visit to the Lobster Pot. Combining the hustle & bustle of our busy dining rooms & being tired after a long whale watch trip can sometimes set the stage for, as you say...a "big mistake". Sorry about the...More

We've meant for years to stop here and haven't, since the doorway seems so unimpressive. Don't let that stop you! Go inside....make your way (with the help of a very accommodating staff) to the back dining rooms, 2 floors overlooking the beach, and partake of...More

Our hosts at our B&B suggested this place when we didn't have reservations and just wanted a good local spot. It's not fancy and it's a little loud but it's fun and the lobster was the best! Great selection on the menu but we went...More

We visited The Lobster Trap again this Sunday and had a great lunch. The food is great, the wait staff is knowledgeable and fun (especially Kirby). I had the clam roll which was very good. Worth a visit when in Provincetown.

Went on a Sunday night, had a short wait, long enough for a quick drink in the bar across the road. Seafood was fantastic, recommend Portuguese clams. Kids options too for under 12s.

The ladies greeting the customers should be training all the 20 somethings who are hostessing across the cape. The best smiles and most enthusiasm we encountered on our visit to the cape. Our lunch was good too.

No parking on Commercial street, but there is a public lot not far away. If you have handicapped/elders, you could drop them off and then go up the hill to park.
