Description: 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.

Thanks for checking us out. I'm glad you enjoyed your meal, but I'm sorry if our prices were a bit of a downside for you. We use only the freshest, highest quality seafood and ingredients and have to charge accordingly. In any event, I appreciate the 5 stars and hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again someday!

Cheers,

Tony

“Seafood Portugal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

At $29.99 had high hopes for this dish. Nice flavor in the liqueurs swimming in the bottom of a massive bowl but every other bite contained GRIT. Sad.

“Best New England Seafood in Siesta Key!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

This place was fabulous! We were greeted by this very nice lady who sat us right away.. We started with the house wines, and they were delish! Then the appetizer was Ipswich fried Clams, and the the meal.. Two people got the fried Scallops, one Crab Cake, and one Scallop Special with a crab sauce and cheese on top.. All the meals came quick, hot and were delish as well..
Dessert was Key lime pie. Yummy..

“Great quick lunch stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We were in the area and looking for a place to grab a quick lunch, preferably seafood. The Lobster Pot did not disappoint.

I ordered the lobster bisque and a side salad. The soup was absolutely delicious - rich, creamy and with lots of small lobster bits. The salad had mixed greens, tomato, cucumber and red onion. The croutons were homemade. The ranch dressing was better than usual, with a slight sweet taste to it. My husband and I both thought the dressing was outstanding.

He ordered fish and chips. There were three huge pieces of white fish, nicely battered, with tons of fries.

Total bill, with drinks, was under $25.00.

The place is right in the center of town, next to the gazebo, but does have an "on the water" feel to it.

We hope to return when we are in the area again - and next time for dinner!
