great place to dine. favorite is their signature - The Dutchess - a stuffed lobster tail. We are never disappointed. Other diners with us had various other seafoods and everyone was more than satisfied with their selections. Service staff is very attentive; atmosphere is conducive for romantic dinner or a get together with friends.

We just finished a wonderful, and reasonably priced, meal at the Lobster Pot in Siesta Key village. Two couples, 4 different meals, all excellent. Having corn bread instead of rolls was a treat and the lobster bisque was as good as I've ever had. Large menu, friendly service (thanks Sarah ) even the busser was moving quickly - I thought...

Our table patrons were all eating lobster cooked in different fashions. My wife really enjoyed her claws.

The Lobster Pot is a gem situated among the "bar" restaurants in Siesta Key. Stick to the lobster and seafood and will not be disappointed. Service has been excellent in this very small restaurant every time we visited. The clam chowder is also better than the other so-called award winning soups I have tasted.

Cute place, pleasant staff. The Lobster Bisque was outstanding (the hit), fried clam strips not so much. Also the fish tacos had very little flavor, I tried adding sauces to it but nothing seemed to help. The other problem with them was there was so much in the shell that it fell apart and had to be eaten with knife... More

The Lobster Pot is a quaint little gem in Siesta Key. It's not large on size but it's big on flavor and hospitality. It's nautical theme fits right in on the island. I ordered the baked stuffed Lobster Duchess and was extremely happy with my choice. It's served as the whole lobster with the tail stuffed. Let me tell you,... 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.
