I was looking for good Florida seafood we took a drive down to Siesta Key and this place had the best trip advisor ratings (duped again). It was okay, very small. My lobster roll came on a hot dog bun.....

This restaurant was the worst dinner experience. The lobster bisque has no flavor whatsoever. The pasta had zero flavor and 6 tiny shrimps. The other pasta was floating in sauce! This place was a HUGE letdown! Do not waste your $ here!

I like how fresh the lobster is at the Lobster Pot, but it can get busy. I live on the Key #IslandLife and I love going to this place when I want sea food or I go to Gabbiano's.

The food was not good even if we would've been charged half price. I would've rather had my anniversary meal at Red Lobster.

We had dinner there on our last night of Vacation. Had a delicious N.E. style lobster roll. good service. It was very crowded. We have been to the one in Provincetown. That one is a lot bigger.

My wife & I had a fantastic dinner. We started with the lobster bisque, then we had the lobster roll. Simply stated, they were both outstanding!! I highly recommend this restaurant. The service was also excellent...very fast & friendly.

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.
