If just the sight of a cartoon lobster sign on a
restaurant creates an intense shellfish craving, then the Lobster Pot
is certainly hard to bypass on the Cranberry Highway in Wareham MA.
Sometimes, past-their-prime New England seafood shacks serve up lobster
as about as appetizing as the sign itself, but the Lobster Pot has
withstood quite well the test of time as a beloved lobster restaurant
with its origins dating back to 1908. Purely a family-run business, the
newest generation carries on the grand traditions serving seafood
caught by local fishermen and transforming the fish into some of the
most popular dishes on the south coast near the Cape Cod bridges. The
menu is huge and so are the lobsters, coming in at as much as 10
Most will opt for the one-and-a-fourth or two pound versions, or other
favorites like fish and chips, lobster rolls, New England clam chowder
and whole fried clams.
Order at the counter service is fast and efficient, and cleanliness
allows for further customer satisfaction as some other seafood shacks
can get rather fishy when it comes to hygienic integrity.
A spacious, informal spacious dining room with huge booths, and a fish
market on the premises, the Lobster Pot might look like another hokey
tourist trap on the outside but far surpasses that exterior by adhering
to the high standards set by ancestors generations ago.
The Lobster Pot is located at 3155 Cranberry Highway, Wareham MA. Tel.
