Description: Whether you are missing home or in need of a seafood fix. Drop by this causal location that boosts of New England seafood and memorabilia. It is like dropping yourself up north to savor the flavors of the New England region. A Bit of Boston has become a favorite for New England vacationers, snow birds, transplants and locals alike. Treats like lobster rolls, sea scallops, clam cakes made with ingredients shipped in from Rhode Island are just a few. Their is hot dogs served on fresh New England style rolls and whole belly clams from none other than Ipswich. Just in case you are not in the mood for seafood, you are covered with favorites like Philly cheese-steak, meatball, Sausage & Pepper Hoagie's. There is a reason some travel as far as Ft Myers just to have a bowl of New England Clam Chowder. Stop by this local gem, you might just become a regular.

There are many people in this area that actually LIKE this place, but I sure am NOT one of them. They are way overpriced for what you get. Service is horrible, the seats are uncomfortable, food is not good, need I go on...???

Passed by this restaurant on our way to a BBQ place and decided to turn around and give it a shot. So happy we went! Great food, great people and great prices. My Boston man loved the atmosphere and the cheese steak. We also enjoyed an incredible appetizer of shrimp and broccoli on potato skins...YUM!

After having a bad order of clams at the Lobster Pot on Siesta Key, it was a pleasure to enjoy these wonderful fried clams. The service and atmosphere are like your neighborhood market.
My wife had the Lobster roll and it was plump with lobster.
If your in the area this is a great place.

My wife and I occasionally get cravings for great New England seafood. This restaurant has outstanding clam chowder, and some of the best whole belly clams that I have had outside of New England. They also have great New England fish. The location is good, and the service is excellent, even when they have lines out the door, which is normal during the tourist season here.
