Every year, we're back! Casual; easy to get to; great, attentive staff--with memories!! and the crabcakes are all crab--little filler, lobster rolls are delicious, as is the lobster bisque, and Portuguese stew soup!! And you can't beat the cornbread. AND......$10/bottle corkage if you choose to bring your own wine!! GO!

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. It is very small but for some reason we did not have to wait on either of our visits. Over the top delicious! It seems to be an Italian setting with fabulous seafood. The special family recipe stuffed lobster is to die for. We ordered the Clam strips for an appetizer, soft, tender... More

It is pricey but delicious & worth the price. Our dinners were very good also as was the service. The one problem we... More

Great location, food was wonderful, service great... a must hit place when visiting Siesta Key. We had stuffed lobster (YUM) and a lobster pasta, both are highly recommended, but, judging from the menu, anything there would be great.. Don't miss this great eatery...

We ordered the 2 lobster dinner to split. It was more than enough for both of us with food to spare. Everything was delicious! The service was very good, also.

The food and service was bland and not memorable the hostess sat us at a table where food was still on the floor. When I asked for suggestions from the server James he was despondent as though he did not have a clue what to discuss related to the menu he did say he would give me additional time to... 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.
