Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We went here with friends for an evening out. The food is great-everything on the menu is done well. Drinks are good, service was great...it's a really solid and reliable place to eat in ptown. The two upstairs bartenders last night were awesome! Very personable and on top of drinks etc. kudos to them! (July 3, 2014)

“Really Disappointed”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We were so looking forward to returning and having clam chowder, fried clams, blackened fish tacos and the lobster-avocado appetizer. There were four us and we were all disappointed. The clam chowder was mostly cream and potatoes when it used have great fresh clam flavor. The fried clam platter was served barely warm on a bed of cold and soggy French fries. The blackened fish tacos had burnt not blackened fish and the sweet potato fries were also served cold and mushy.

Unfortunately this will be our last visit unless we were to return for the Bloody Mary's which were quite good.

“The first visit and the best visit.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This is our first visit to Ptown and we were advised to have lunch at The Lobster Pot. The experience was everything we were told it would be. Ronnie was our server and he was absolutely the most friendly and positive person we have ever met. Between Ronnie and the great food we will surely be back.

“The very best Scrod!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Fabulous seafood and cocktails! The view is very nice at sunset. Service is excellent - go at an off time and the wait is not that long.
