Tight quarters, but the food is worth it. Absolutely Fantastic. My husband had the lobster duchess, I had the fiery scallops pasta, we split a watermelon salad. Great selection for kids too. A must visit!!

Thank you for your feedback. We went back to our original mussels which are P.E.I. mussels and no longer carry the mussels that you had. We agree. Hope to see you again soon.

Fried clam dinner or scallops Rockefeller are good choices - but the complimentary cornbread squares make it a great visit anyway you slice it. And always try the lobster bisque or New England clam chowder.

I thought I would give it a try, however, the outside and the inside did not interest me, nor the service. I plan on never going back because, there are much better places with better food and service.

Well overpriced for the quality of food you receive. Had the seafood platter and it was small portion and just average. Wife had watermelon salad and said it was decent. Hard to go wrong with a salad though!

I love this place! This was my second visit. Both have been awesome! The food is fantastic! The clam cho user is every bit as good as chowder I have had on cape cod! If you are in Siesta Key, go there! It's worth it!

Description
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.
