The Lobster Pot

Laid-back landmark
Their award-winning clam chowder is a P-town tradition. Be sure to grab one of the tables in the back along the water.

      Lobster anyone
      The annual trip to PTown would not be complete without a trip to the Lobster Pot. This year's lobster (3 lbs) was amazing and almost too much for the two of us (but we managed) The staff is friendly and talkative, even if the place was packed, they make you feel welcome

      Great place to have lobster, but you have to start with clam chowder. I go here each time I'm in P-town, and I'm never disappointed neither will you. Try this place out & you'll be hooked!

      Typical Seafood Place
      It seems to be on plenty of peoples' must-stop list but it's not really worth writing home about. But I'll write to you...there are tons of great restaurants in P-town, so if you are a foodie or only in town for a brief stay, you can get better seafood elsewhere. But, for a traditional meal of lobster or crab or the like, not a bad choice. Can be crowded and loud but ample space if you have a big group (12 ppl) like we did when was last there.

      What more could you ask for. Eating a lobster looking out into the Harbor in P-Town. Yes, the building is old, but thats what gives it it's charm.The food is great the service is great.A great night out to dinner before a show or to the clubs.

      An Institution in Ptown
      Take your camera, take a photo, stand in line with everyone else and it is a must at least once when you are in Ptown. Not fabulous, but good food and it's like going back in time.

      Lobster Pot is so overrated
      This is the ultimate tourist destination. The food is mediocre and the place is crowded. You can get much better food -- and seafood -- elsewhere in Provincetown.

      This restaurant is in the most unique-looking building on Commercial Street covered on the outside with red neon. While it's something of a factory in terms of its culinary output - popular with tour groups and such, it's definitely the place to go if all you want is a traditional Cape Cod lobster dinner with drawn butter.
