A fixture on the Bermuda dining scene since 1973, The Lobster Pot is a perennial favorite for its campy nautical décor, fresh seafood specialties, and award-winning fish chowder—a spicy seafood stew traditionally served with a dash of Gosling's Black Seal rum and Outerbridge's Sherry Peppers sauce. And although the restaurant is built an outdoor deck where meals can be enjoyed in the shade, not much else has changed in nearly 40 years. 


Its Bermuda stone walls are still trimmed with cedar planks; fishing nets, wooden oars, and heavy brass bells still decorate most surfaces, including wooden rafters suspended from the ceiling; and the feeling that you're dining in the bowels of old sailing vessel still permeates. But of course, that's a good thing when you're eating such a consistently solid lineup of seafood dishes, including Bermuda cod fish cakes, conch fritters, Creole shrimp pasta, and local catch of the day cooked way. (That is, pan-fried with bananas and almonds, broiled with lemon butter, or boat mate's style—broiled in garlic curry-butter.)
