By far the best place we ate while at Siesta Key. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. It is a bit pricy but I was expecting this based on previous reviews.

We have dined at The Lobster Pot several times on our trips. It is on our list of top favorites. Lobster and sweet clams are great. Met and talked to the owner last time, staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Excellent service and great food. I got the fried shrimp but tested my families food and everything was excellent. The inside is kind of cramped but I didn't care. The service and food more than made up for this.

Mussels delicious, lobster was great. All in all food was an A. Servers and management were friendly. Convenient location. They serve beer and wine only but that was fine for us.

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.
