I ate here twice during my short stay in Provincetown, I liked it that much. I'm sure others have said it, but it seems like a Provincetown institution and it's what you would expect from a Cape Cod seafood restaurant. The seafood is very fresh...More

Always one of our favorites in P-Town. Family group of 12 with children never a problem. Great food and service with a beautiful view of Provincetown harbor.

The service was really good, from the front desk to hostess/host upstairs and the server. However my daughter has celiac disease and while I don't expect perfection she did get sick all the way back to Yarmouth. It was disappointing for the price we paid.

Sorry you "would not recommend for Celiacs"...our separate Gluten Free Menu was put together for just that purpose and offers many great dining options. The Lobster Pot Restaurant...a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Winner.

Fantastic food and service. Full gluten free menu that really is, unlike some places that fry things in the same fryer. Cajun boulabase is outstanding.

Sorry you were somewhat disappointed with your dinner @ the LP. Yes, you are correct...there is Iceberg along with other greens in that entree...perhaps its title should be "on mixed greens". None the less, your displeasure could have been brought to the FOH Manager...there is...More
