We lucked out and got the best outside table! We started with marinated conch and escargots....both great! We then shared the "Pot"!! Very generous Pot!! We each got a lobster tail (nice size) 2 huge shrimp, and 3 crab legs with baked potato and veggies. VERY filling and most importantly.....DELICIOUS!!! I finished it all off with the key lime pie.....very refreshing and tasty! HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!!!

My boyfriend and I were in the Cayman May 17-24 and ate at the Lobster Pot twice. Lee our server was one of the reasons we came back. Food was very good but Lee made it memorable. If you go, and you should, ask for Lee.

Dining on a deck overlooking the ocean on Grand Cayman you'd expect a daily catch of fresh fish to be just that. A Grouper we ordered tasted like a rubber chicken, not flakey the way a fresh Grouper should taste. Asked management to replace it and asked if it was fresh as has advertised, the only comment back was that "it came in today", not where it came from. Did not even taste like Grouper , maybe a cheaper fish falsely presented. The Snapper that replaced it was better but still obviously previously frozen.

The price of the fish was not cheap. Lobster Pot management should be ashamed of themselves and at least tell you the fish is frozen if you ask that question directly which we did. Accompanying vegetables were undercooked and rice and peas were bland as a previous reviewer had warned.

On an extremely positive note, our Pumpkin Risotto dish was excellent and worth the tariff. This saved the place from getting a totally negative review.

Our black bean soup appetizer was hot puréed plain with a dab of sour cream was good.

Service was ok and the staff and management were present, friendly and accessible.

We wanted a Caribbean lobster dinner and the Lobster Pot delivered. The food was excellent and so was the service. Our French waitress was sweet and helpful. We were seated outside beside the lit water and had a wonderful meal. The prices were a bit high, but we knew that Cayman prices are about 1/3 higher than anything in the States. Go for a special dinner or a celebration.

Refurbished beautifully after the fire. A lovely place to go for a romantic meal. Quiet ambiance and if you get lobster or seafood you really can't go wrong. Sure the prices are a bit expensive - however, for that one or two night time on vacation where you feel like having the ambiance of the ocean and a quiet meal with your significant other - you really can't go wrong. I wish they had half points as I would give a 3.5 (not a solid 4 but certainly above a solid 3 also). Can be a bit hard to miss on the road when its dark outside - as it is small and in a little enclave that is dark without much streetlight.

I would NOT recommend coming with children - this isn't really a place to take your rug rats (no matter how charming you deem them to be). It's more of a low key, adult ambiance that isn't conducive to others ADD hyperactive kids....its a place where adult vacationers go for a nice meal out. Save the kid stuff for 7 Mile Beach Area (not really much to do for family at this place)
