The Lobster Pot
EnjoyableOur 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.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster NotAlthough 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.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely!!Wonderful food! This was my first visit, I'll be back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day TreatWe 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.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 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!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM25th anniversaryIt was a quiet evening inthe restaurant so service was excellent. The food was very good.

All in all a great night.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNice restaurant with goodNice 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.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend this restaurant.Highly recommend this restaurant.

Desserts were incredible.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA great restaurant whose exteriorA 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.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster Pot recently openedLobster Pot recently opened for lunch.

It turned out to be very nice, however a little expensive - 30+ for a single lobster tail, accompanied by a salad, vegetable and fantastic garlic mashed potatoes . My only gripe with this restaurant was the price difference between a Martini up, and a Martini on the rocks - a 2$ difference! ( martini up was more). When I told the waiter we had ordered both up ( and he brought the wrong one)- he didn't want to take the initiative to correct the bill.
I would try this restaurant again because I think it has potential.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
