We had dinner here and it was awesome! Great food, great service - expect to wait for a table. The Maine lobster is the best, but not everyone ordered it and everyone loved their entree.

Save time & use the valet parking, Public parking is minimal. Valet recommended the fiery scallops & glad we listened, Soooo good & not to spicy,. Lobster duches was delicious. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

All I can say is mmmmm to the crab legs! Probably one of the best we had... and we eat out a lot. Crowed, small but great food.

We visited the Lobster Pot on our last day on Siesta Key, and wouldn't you know it had the best clam chowder we had on our entire trip. Thick, with lots of potatoes and clams, just the way we like it. There was a good kids menu with enough choices for your picky eaters. The dining area isn't huge, so... More

This tiny restaurant is crowded for a reason. They know how to cook fish properly! We had grouper and snapper, knowing that it is always best to stick with a local catch. Not disappointed, it was expertly cooked, with beautiful boiled potatoes and a great veggie side dish. House white by the glass was reasonable and tasty.

We visited this restaurant on a busy Friday night and we're very happy with the service and our food! I had the Lobster Roll Dinner, and my husband had fresh tuna. Both meals were delicious and served with two sides along with their yummy cornbread. It's a great place for dinner in the Village. We used Jonny's free shuttle service... More

Was looking forward to eating here as seen great reviews and always busy. But when we finally got a table (which seemed like they were doing us a favour), we were left disappointed. The kids meals were the worst they've ever had, a hot dog that looked like was a microwave job on a plate on its own, with a... More

...well worth the 30 minute wait and we really enjoyed our meals there. Perhaps one of the best restaurants in the "Village" area of Siesta Key.

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.
