I went to the Lobster Pot in Siesta Key on vacation. They had the best stuffed Lobster I've ever eaten. Expensive, but well worth it. I must say, though, that the corn bread tasted stale, and the vegetables were very plain and mediocre.

Our last night in Siesta Key was going to be Amish food when I bought fresh mini donuts next door I saw the Lobster Pot and the menu was calling my name. Glad it did because we all enjoyed it immensely. Good fresh seafood. Reasonable prices

OMG - yes the food is fresh and cooked to perfection! The stuffed lobster is very pricey buy hubby and I split one (with a $3 split charge) and it was plenty for both of us.

I wouldn't discourage families with small children, but I think it's fair to say that adults and families with older children will have a better experience. The service was very good. The food was fun. We had the special which was a New England lobster pot. My wife and I shared this dish which turned out to be a good... More

Every year, we're back! Casual; easy to get to; great, attentive staff--with memories!! and the crabcakes are all crab--little filler, lobster rolls are delicious, as is the lobster bisque, and Portuguese stew soup!! And you can't beat the cornbread. AND......$10/bottle corkage if you choose to bring your own wine!! GO!

Located on Siesta Key in beautiful Sarasota, we bring you the finest tastes of New England. Enjoy a delightful dining experience in our main dining room or our patio. As winners of "Taste of Sarasota," we still carry on the New England tradition of excellence. While here we hope you'll enjoy your "Old Cape Cod" and Florida dining experience! We purchase fresh seafood daily from only the finest fisherman in our native areas and also Florida. All of our live lobsters are from Bar Harbor and Boothbay Maine. While specializing in New England seafood and of course lobster, we also offer local seafood, steaks, chops, chicken, pasta and salads. Several of our recipes have been passed down from the owner’s family including our award winning signature baked stuffed lobster duchess, which is oven-baked Maine lobster stuffed with chunky seafood. Also using family recipes are our terrific homemade soups, including lobster bisque, New England clam chowder and the wonderful Portuguese kale soup.
