Notable neon of the week: Provincetown, Massachusetts' Lobster Pot




Provincetown, Massachusetts is a beautiful and funky art community that rests on the tip of scenic Cape Cod. My family vacationed there often when I was growing up, and while we never dined at the Lobster Pot restaurant on Commercial Street, its friendly neon lobster was always a landmark to me. After not visiting for many years, I went back to P-town recently and was delighted to see the sign is still there, exactly as it was when I was a kid. And we still didn't dine there.

Well the place seems to endure so the food must be half decent, one would think...

Yes, despite its modest exterior, it's rather pricey. It was too expensive for my family back in the 70s, and now that I'm all grown up and successful... it's still too expensive.

Yeah, it's a shame the claws aren't animated.

Love your stuff.

yes the lobster pot is modest and expensive but wonderfully unique. My roommate worked there during the summer and made a fortune in tips.

I love that sign and glad to see the place is still around! My sister and I ate there a few years ago, strictly because of that wonderful sign. I don't remember the food being anything notable, but glad to say I ate there!
