We had a variety of menu items--all outstanding. Lobster, surf and turf, grouper, and linguini with clams. My entree was the pan-seared grouper and I can personally attest to its quality. The Irish coffee was great, as well.

Lobster Pot recently opened
Lobster Pot recently opened for lunch. Food and service were excellent. The price was very reasonable. I recommend the lunch Maine Lobster.

A great restaurant whose exterior
A great restaurant whose exterior doesn't give credit to the food and service inside. My wife & daughter stuck with seafood and really enjoyed it. Not being a seafood type person I ordered steak and was extremely pleased. Although prices were a bit higher than I'm used to, I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Nice restaurant with good
Nice restaurant with good seafood and ambiance. It was a Sunday evening in late April and the restaurant was quiet but had about 4-5 tables filled. Music in the bar. Would definitely reccommend it to others but know that it is more pricey than a red lobster.

It was a quiet evening inthe restaurant so service was excellent. The food was very good. Celebrating an anniversary, Ihad made a request and it was handled beautifully and they had a special dessert for us which was very nice. All in all a great night.

Great Seafood (and steaks)
We have come here every year for the last 8+ years, and this year was one of the best!
My wife had the Surf & Turf, I had the rock shrimp; my daughter and her friend had steaks, and all were great, with large portions.
We all shared a nice bottle of Cabernet. White cloth tablecloth and napkins, great ambience, a classy place.
A little pricey, but worth it for the great food and very good service, and they do offer a lite menu now (inserted in the main menu.)
And complimentary valet parking. We will be back again!

Mothers Day Treat
We have always enjoyed the romantic feel this restaurant has, it is a bit pricey so we treat
ourselves once when we come to Florida. The South African lobster is to die for, we always
order the same thing each time we come, the Gourmet Chioce worth the price.

Wonderful food! This was my first visit, I'll be back.

Although the restaurant is comfortable, quiet and has great service, it's namesake on the menu is sorely lacking in portion size. I ordered a single Maine lobster tail, anticipating a decent size tail since it is the key enticement for the restaurant. Sadly, the tail had the length, width and depth of an old, small flip phone, but had the price of a whole lobster in most other locales. The humor of the meal was found in the size of the tail's shell, which was easily 2 to 3 times the size of the tail itself.
On a positive note, our server (Brandy) was kind, gracious and extremely attentive.

Our meal was delicious - my Lobster Mac & Cheese was wonderful. My wife said her Delmonico steak with Mac and Cheese (Gouda) was fantastic, but will now have to get it off her hips! (Her words, not mine). Great wine selection too.

This was the perfect place to celebrate Father's Day with my husband to be. The food was excellent, the wait staff was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable. I plan to come again with friends.

What a nice dinner!
I had never been to the Lobster Pot before and a friend recommended it for his birthday dinner. The waiter was absolutely terrific. He knew everything about all the dishes and I felt like he was a friend at the end of the dinner. I had the broiled lobster and garlic mashed potatoes, along with the salad with house made bleu cheese dressing. The prices weren't terrible either. The online prices are higher than the menu prices, so that was a pleasant surprise. Everything was just delicious! I am glad I tried it and I will definitely make the 45 minute drive to go back!

The new menu and selection is great. We will be happy to come back and have James take good care of us again.

We hadn't dined at the Lobster
We hadn't dined at the Lobster Pot for several years. Our past experience was always positive. While on vacation we decided to revisit and again it was favorable. Our waiter was very helpful. The prices had been reduced and we liked that. My husband and I both had lobster and had no complaints.

Food was to die for!
From the appetizers to the dessert it was amazing! The escargot and the black and blue tuna were delicious. The lobster melted in your mouth. I cannot say enough about the banana split cheesecake!! That chef deserves 5 stars! The only reason I would not go more often is its very pricey. Will save it for special occasions!!!!

The entire dinner was great, able to carry on conversation with our guests while having a very attentive , knowledgable server named ,Brandi (sp). Our fish platters were watched over while being prepared to avoid being over cooked.

Restaurant Week Experience
After reviewing the Tampa Bay Restaurant Week website and seeing the Lobster Pot as a dinning option, we decided to give it a try since we had not been at the restaurant since it re-opened a few years ago. We were very pleased with our experience, the wait staff was very friendly and accomodating the whole time we were there. Our waiter was James. We did choose to order from the Restaurant Week menu and our meals were very good, portions appeared to be the same as if you ordered from the regular menu. Overall, we had a pleasant experience and would recommend the restaurant as well as plan on going back again in the future. We may also try the other location on Clearwater Beach.

the Lobster Pot always provides a excellent dinning experience all the way around

This restaurant is a very nice, quiet, clean and charming local beach icon.
Been here for years! They are super attentive and service is what you would expect.
Food was very good. Substantial portions.

Was a great place for an anniversity dinner. The food was excellent with a small intimate dinning room

great special occasion place
I took my b/f to the Lobster Pot for his birthday, and he was very pleased. We had MY favorite appetizer, the Angel's on Horseback. Ymmm...But the rest of the dinner was delicious also. We each had one of the specials, which, of course, included lobster, but also shrimp and steak. The wine recommended by the waiter was a great choice. He was just the right amount of attentiveness. When we walked out the door, our valeted car was already waiting at the door for us - very classy! Very nice evening!!!

We enjoyed the individualized
We enjoyed the individualized service. We like to eat early in the evening-before the rush. The restaurant is currently being renovated-but we saw no direct signs of this in the front dinning area. It was a friendly, comfortable setting. We learned a bit about the history of the restaurant from the manager who came over to speak with us.
The food was delicious-the sea scallops were cooked perfectly-so tender! My husbands grouper was crusted and crisp on a delicious rice bed that also was lightly crisp! We always enjoy our visit to Lobster Pot and look forward to trying the Lobster Pot Bistro.

The restaurant has a quiet ambiance and the foodand service are excellent. The menu caters for all tastes and a trade mark dish is the surf and turf with the filet and South African lobster tail.
We come to the area every year and would not miss our visit to the Lobster Pot

We couldn't have been happier with our dinner at The Lobster Pot. My husband and I both had the Bistro Grouper, which provided just the right combination of flaky white grouper with a crispy lightly fried roll of rice and peas over a Vodka sauce. The portions were large and the fish was very fresh. The apple desert was delightful, but the rich, chocolate desert we took home for our daughter was even better. The server was accurate when she said it would melt in your mouth when warmed to room temperature. The entire meal was exceptional.

Great evening with family....Cozy feel and great ambiance. Food was great. Lobster Thermador delicious. Everything was wonderful. It is a litle pricey, but a great place for a SPECIAL night to dine.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their Specials are to die for and straight to the point delicious. If you order something off the menu and it says the recipe is trademarked then I advise you to try it. I came to the place with a very big appetite and they filled it. I got the special which was the third one that night. Alaskian King Crab Legs (One Pound,cracked and open already for me to eat) and a Lobster Tail. I got the trademarked Escargot for an app. and a Caesar Salad. The dessert was the Key Lime Pie, Everything was A+, The food if there was a higher grade than an A+ I would give it. I'm going back again and asking for Brandy. She made the experience wonderful and fun.

We went to the Lobster Pot in Redington Shores for my husband's birthday. It is truly the place to go for lobster. Fantastic! The dinner including an appetizer and wine, while not inexpensive, was very reasonable for what we got. Wonderful service. I know we'll go back as often as we can afford to go.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful. On the constructive side my wife's short ribs were not well cooked. Tough. Most other place we have been the meat is falling off the bone. Srill, we will come back. I am in love with Alicia. Grin

The Lobster Pot has long been my family's go-to restaurant to celebrate special occasions. This time, 5 of us celebrated our two daughters' birthdays. Food, as always, was terrific. The South African lobster tail is wonderful. We highly recommend the Lobster Pot.
