We had an excellent server, I will say that first and foremost, for our dinner Saturday evening Our food was average for that price point.....portions could have been larger. I enjoy eating next to the water (primary reason we chose this restaurant), but the dated...More

Thanks for joining us at The Lobster Pot. Just to inform you, our carpet was replaced a few years ago, and the building was completely refreshed and repainted. We are glad that you enjoyed your time otherwise, and hope to see you back soon!

The spectacular view and lovely locale is marred by dark decor and cranky, poorly trained servers. The lobster sandwich ($26) was very high prices but excellent quality and the blackened salmon ($24) was very, very spicy. The sides were average, but could use some seasoning....More

Thanks for you compliments, we are glad that you enjoyed the Lobster Pot. Sorry that you find our prices high, but as you must be aware, maintaining a building in a prime, waterfront location is very costly, and prices have to be figured into that....More

Food was great, along with the service and the view. I had the tuna and it was prepared perfectly. Drinks were great too.

When the weather allows outdoor seating, this is the place to go for after-work happy hours (locals), and a lovely spot for tourists. Even sitting inside, there are terrific water views. Service is excellent, with friendly wait staff. Menu has variety, but I'd rate the...More
