Our Story

In 1940, our family opened the first Lobster Pot in Cape Cod. The son of a Portuguese fisherman, Ralph Medeiros and his wife, Adeline, created dishes using freshly caught fish and lobster from their family members. Son Glen brought his father’s recipes and his own to Siesta Key Village, where he runs the restaurant with his wife and sons.

With Portuguese ancestry, a New England past and a Florida location, the Lobster Pot menu honors each of these culinary heritages. You’ll find hearty Portuguese kale soup and a Maine lobster tail among our offerings. We purchase fresh seafood daily from only the finest fishermen here in Florida and in New England. All of our live lobsters are from Bar Harbor and Boothbay, Maine.
