Best Lobster Roll outside of New England

If you can't travel up to New England for a lobster roll, some authentic fried clams, clam chowder, lobster bisque, etc., or a bottle of "Moxie", then A La Carte is the place to go. A charming little cottage, decorated inside with memorabilia from the Red Sox and New England Patriots bringing... read more

We live In Panama City, Florida but originally from Massachusetts, while on a day trip along the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida, my husband jokingly said we had passed a sign that said whole bellied fried clams so I googled it hoping on our way back we would stop.

Lunch was great, best seafood at the beach! Lobster, scallops, crab cakes we tried them all and all were good. A bit pricey, but portions are large and top quality food! I will come back!

My Dad and I visited this place because we are both seafood lovers. We work for the same company in the Beaches area and we always try to find unique places once a week. I'm so glad we came here. The fried shrimp was some of the best I've had. It was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend going here... More

We are so happy you enjoyed your lunch with us. We are a true mom & pop operation. My husband is the only chef in the kitchen and everything is made to order so sometimes it may take a little longer then other places because we want our food to be prepared the best it can be cooked. I think... More

Our small family of five arrived for lunch to find a neat looking little restaurant. We were drawn here by the TripAdvisor reviews but were quickly disappointed. While we waited to be seated, the only occupied table was served two dishes. The customer politely said "this isn't what I ordered." The lady that served them shocked all of us by... More

Sorry we could not accomidate your group in our small dining area of our cottage. We are a small mom and pop business with just my husband and I doing everything during our lunch hours. It's to difficult as I explained to you to put two tables together to seat your group. We do have outdoor seating on our picnic... More

I had heard so much about this special restaurant. Finally got there to try the lobster roll and clam chowder. Both excellent. Very cozy, friendly with a definite Jax Beach vibe. The owners do it all,with lots of take home frozen goodies. They only serve lunch so go early. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a very special New... More

Found this place on TA and we were not disappointed. This is owned and operated by a husband and wife team and they bring all of their seafood in fresh from Maine. You can tell it in the taste and quality. I was very impressed with the Clam Chowdah, it was the best I have had by far. It is... More

After seeing them on a local Morning Show, I thought I would give them a try. Ate lunch here today. We were greeted by lovely woman and her husband who own the place. We ordered the chowdah and split a Lobster Roll and also ordered the Shrimp which is local Mayport Shrimp. Best food ever. The chowder is filled with... More
