We stopped in for lunch. The lobster roll and crab cake sandwich were delicious. Good coleslaw too. Friendly waitress and clean. Small place though but sometimes smaller is better.

This place was really nice. We actually went there 2 night out of our 5 night stay. James, one of the waiters, was so pleasant. They have great lobster rolls.

This is one of those old time places that are on your list that you eventually have to try. We were very pleased overall. They promote a homemade garlic dressing and I have to believe that's not just puffing, it is some of the best...More

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.
