Lobster Pot serves up more than just lobster dishes

Author: Share:

Lobster Pot 3If you love lobster New England style and fresh local seafood, this is one restaurant you simply must try when coming to Siesta Key. Fresh fish is purchased daily from local fishermen and their lobsters are delivered live straight from Bar Harbor and Boothbay in Maine.

Owner, Glen Medeiros continues to use some of his father’s recipes including their signature award winning Baked Stuffed Lobster Duchess which is Maine Lobster made with a chunky seafood stuffing and baked in the oven. Both the Seafood Portugal, and the Salmon Rockefeller have been award-winning dishes at “The Taste of Sarasota” competition and have proven to be popular dishes.

They also offer hearty homemade soups that are family recipes, including Lobster Bisque, New Lobster Pot 5England Clam Chowder, and the wonderful Portuguese Kale Soup.

This family owned restaurant has been in operation since November 2000. Medeiros is proud to carry on the tradition his Portuguese parents, Ralph and Adeline Medeiros, started back in 1939 in Provincetown, Massachusetts with the opening of the original Lobster Pot.

“My passion was to open a restaurant like my parents, and now my two sons and I manage the restaurant with my wife up front as a hostess. I also have my two daughters-in-law working for us now. We are a proud third-generation family owning and operating our business.”

With all the compliment and rave reviews this restaurant receives on a consistent basis, they know they are doing something right.

Here is just a sampling of what is being said about Lobster Pot on Trip Advisor.

“You won’t regret it.”

Lobster Pot 2The baked lobster duchess was about 35 dollars (market price) came with two sides and corn bread. The service and food was worth it. Skip the fancy and come to this quaint place. The stuffing has scallops shrimp and crab! Amazing! Ask for Chris. 


“Yummy Lobster Rolls!!”
Popped in to grab a quick bite and had THE MOST DELICIOUS Lobster Rolls for lunch. The waitress was great. Couldn’t do enough for us. Well worth dropping by for a quick, delicious, light meal.

“Very Good Lunch” Lobster Pot 4
Went for lunch and had lobster rolls, done in New England fashion w/split bun. Also had kale soup which was excellent. Service was top notch. Definitely recommend.

“Great food!”
My husband is a big seafood lover and we visit Lobster Pot every time we visit Siesta Key. The lobster bisque and stuffed lobster are excellent!

“Great lunch”
This is a very good restaurant. It’s small but if you’re lucky you may get a table on the outside patio. Service was good. The lobster rolls were great. Better than the ones we had in Kenibunkport!! Coleslaw was good and so was the key lime pie. Everything at the tables around us looked and smelled great too. Will go back.

Small but busy restaurant and you can understand why as everything about it is superb. We had passed by a little earlier and there was queue outside. Came back later and we were lucky to have a seat within five minutes and were able to wait at the bar and have a drink. Food was massive. Pasta with slices of salmon and prawns on top was fantastic and I had to be helped to finish the dish!! A starter of calamari was very good and tasty. Great value.
