We had passed this place quite a few times and thought it looked eclectic. I read the reviews and knowing every one has some bad ones cause you can't please everyone...the staff was very friendly and service was good.. Now for the food. There were four of us and we all ordered something different. No one looked their meal. The... More

Was in the area checking out the local fare. Conch frittters? Check... tasted the conch, not a ton, but good. Not a fan of the dipping sauce, catalina dressing? Had the mahi sandwich, grilled. Very fresh, grilled to perfection, bravo. Fries were warm and crisp. Clam chowder... pass on this. All potatoes, no clams, clam broth tasted like they drained... More

We live nearby, have been going to JC"s for over 25 years. It is ALWAYS great! I read a terrible review, it upset me , it was completely wrong. It looks like like an old time Fla seafood restaraunt. We love it!

JC's Lobster Pot is a great place if you want to eat and run. The service is excellent-in fact, too efficient. You are barely done eating your first course by the time the second one is on the table. Nevertheless, the staff is helpful and pleasant. The food is very good. I recommend the fried green tomatoes-probably some of the... More

Wow! We ate here last night and I now officially love Hushpuppies! They were really crispy and had a lovely sweet taste. The fries were crispy too, with some sort of coating on them. The catfish tasted like fresh-caught, and the cole slaw was surprisingly excellent. Not a cole slaw person, so that really was quite a surprise. My husband... More

Due to the crowded parking lot, we decided to give JC's a 3rd try (in 20 years)...figuring that we would at least be satisfied with the food. NOT! The service was good, and fast, and there were several courses with the entrees. My husband like all the potatoes in the clam chowder, but had to season it himself! The salad... More

We returned to JC's for the third time. Again by 4:30 and we got one of the last tables. The Coquille JC is my favorite. The price for seniors and early birds is so reasonable as are the wine and dessert choices that we order it all. My husband had a prime rib done perfectly medium rare paired with grouper.... More

Don't let the less than fancy outside appearance deter you, The Lobster Pot has a very pleasant, nautical and casual interior motif. And you came for the food anyway, right? You will not be disappointed, the food is excellent. We enjoyed the best lobster we have had since Bar Harbor and the best key lime pie since Key West. Their... More
