Was recommended The Lobster Pot by the B &B we stayed at. Fantastic range of meals but mostly fish dishes. The staff were very helpful as we had not booked and managed to find a table in a secluded spot. I had the seaford chowder followed by baked cod . The chowder was excellent stuffed with mussels fish and other... More

The Lobster Pot restaurant & bar, make dining out, a real sense of occasion. The building is an old traditional style pub, with original seperate rooms, providing lots of nooks and crannies for intimate dining. The decor is comfortable traditional. A museum of memorabilia from times past, hang from the ceiling and walls, giving a nice warm, welcoming ambience. Lots... More

We were travelling with our one year old daughter. We were welcomed most warmly and our little girl was made to feel very welcome. The food was very well cooked with a perfectly presented Dover Sole and delicious King scallops.

I've been to the lobster pot on a number of occasions now, and it never disappoints. The last few occasions we've had to leave before 7pm because of their policy on children under twelve, which takes the shine off a little. The food was excellent and the staff are very efficient and friendly. The menu could do with a little... More

We had a wonderful dinner here last night. The staff could not have been nicer- professional and friendly. The food was delicious. Their famous crab mornay did not disappoint and the seafood bake was superb. Will be back when in the area again

Great seafood restaurant. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. The lobster is sold by weight. Seafood pie is to die for. Quite pricey. You get what you pay for.

We had lovely food here. Interior is nice-old pub style. A few notices up about minding your children etc which is a bit off putting. I wouldn't bring kids back. Food nice though. Prompt service. Good selection of drinks

The Lobster Pot has become an annual hi-light of a trip of 6 German friends to the October Wexford Opera festival. This quaint, remote, low-roofed, cozy and intimate restaurant serves mostly sumptuous seafood (and, you guessed it, fine lobster). Big beer selection on tap. The staff soon becomes like family. Not to be missed, if in the neighborhood. Not easy... More

We visited in Nov so not peak season and we went on a weekday evening at about 4pm. Like others said the huge no buggies and no children after 7 should have flagged it with us. There was no specific incident but the lady owner made it clear we were being watched and we both felt really uncomfortable. Asides from... More
