The Lobster Pot offers a great menu at reasonable prices. The food is excellent and the waitstaff are pleasant and courteous. There is indoor and outdoor dining options. I recommend sitting outside, you get a fantastic view of the water and a spectacular breeze!

We walked in without any reservation for a Sunday lunch. We had a table on the terrace with a great view of harbor. The lobster and oyster were very fresh and tasty, the price was quite reasonable. We loved the dishes and this place!
