Secondly, they serve the BEST Lobster Bisque soup any of us have ever had in our lives! Great ambience; they can open up the front of the restaurant to the... More

We visit this restaurant every time we visit Siesta Key and we always find the food delicious. The wait for a table is never too long & the drinks are good. We love their seafood & will return again.

I only eat fish, and this spot knows how to cook it. We had several meals here in our week's stay and each was beautifully prepared and delicious.

Unpretentious place right in "downtown" Siesta Key. The fish was fresh and nicely prepared. I'd also recommend the Portuguese soup. Friendly and prompt service.

We ate here our first night in Siesta Key so we arrived around 7 pm. There was a 45 minute wait for a table which we spent checking out the shops across the street and buying some things at the supermarket so the time passed quickly. The service was friendly and efficient. The food came out quickly and honestly, the... 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.
