Quality over Quantity at Lobster Pot

3 Jul

The Lobster Pot is located on Ocean Drive in Siesta Key, FL 

Enjoyed lunch today at The Lobster Pot. Yeah, I know it can be a little on the pricey side, but I just had a hankering for a Lobster Roll. The Lobster Roll is a New England classic — you might call it the Northeast’s answer to the seafood po-boy. The dish is hard to find outside of New England. We are lucky to have a New England style seafood house in the neighborhood. They also serve a clam (sweet or Ipswich) roll, scallop roll, and an oyster roll. These sandwiches range between $8.29 and $13.99 — the Lobster Roll being the most expensive.

My sandwich was served with a cool, creamy cole slaw dusted with paprika. The roll was indeed tasty … it was just gone too fast. I realize that lobster is not cheap, but I left the restaurant still hungry. That shouldn’t happen when you drop $14 for lunch — at least not outside of New York City. Oh well, I enjoyed it while it lasted and I will likely return when I feel like treating myself to one of Neptune’s most delectable creatures.
