We vacation at Siesta Key for a week each December and Lobster Pot has become our traditional final dinner. Great seafood and good service. They could not have been more helpful for our party of 8 plus three children under 6!

Great spot for family gatherings and good food with great service. Our family group included children that were accomodated beautifully at this fun location. Good food and great reliable service. Platter with shrimp and scallops was excellent. Everyone was pleased, even the teenagers with lobster mac and cheese.

My hubby had the Portuguese Pot which he raved about.. I had the Shrimp Alfredo; shrimp was bland, sauce lacked flavor. Their house Sangria was very good

Behind the unassuming facade, smack dab in the center of the SK Village, Lobster Pot stands out for very good seafood and for being a cut above the usual Florida fishy place. There are two indoors seating areas, the one up front offering an unencumbered view of tourist foot and motor traffic at the village's main crossroads. The service is... More

Small restaurant, very laid back. Often loud pending the intoxication level of the other diners. The lobster is really, really good and fairly priced. The shrimp is really good as well. Portions are decent, as is the price. Last time we were here, the lobster bisque was amazing. This time it was just OK. Last time our server was slow... More

We found this place on Trip advisor and thought we would try it for ourselves on our anniversary trip to Florida. I would have been a little hesitant if I hadn't read the reviews beforehand since it doesn't look like much from the outside, but just like a book and it's cover you can't judge this place by the outside....

The service and family atmosphere is really comfortable. They really go out if the way to help, which makes up for a mediocre product. The lobster roll is over stuffed, which is great considering its $19. But the flavor of the meat is bland, no sweetness characteristic of fresh lobster. Way too much paprika. I guess I prefer simplicity. Haddock... 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.
