About Us

Lobster Pot Patio SunsetSince 1929, the Lobster Pot has provided Rhode Islanders with the very best in dining experiences. Our kitchen works tirelessly to prepare the finest traditional New England classics — especially seafood — as well as blending dishes with a new and contemporary twist.

Bristol, Rhode Island, a classic New England seaside town is steeped in history and home to the oldest Independence Day celebration in the country. Our premier location, alongside Bristol Harbor, provides one of the most spectacular views of Rhode Island’s greatest treasure, Narragansett Bay.

The Lobster Pot PatioThe Lobster Pot’s warm and attractive atmosphere is enhanced by our gallery of fine paintings and our collection of exquisite jewelry by Van Busch. A place to dine in all seasons, you can enjoy a comfortable summer lunch on our patio or warm up to a cozy fireplace on a chilly winter’s day.
