JC's Lobster Pot is a great place if you want to eat and run. The service is excellent-in fact, too efficient. You are barely done eating your first course by the time the second one is on the table. Nevertheless, the staff is helpful and pleasant. The food is very good. I recommend the fried green tomatoes-probably some of the... More

Wow! We ate here last night and I now officially love Hushpuppies! They were really crispy and had a lovely sweet taste. The fries were crispy too, with some sort of coating on them. The catfish tasted like fresh-caught, and the cole slaw was surprisingly excellent. Not a cole slaw person, so that really was quite a surprise. My husband... More

Due to the crowded parking lot, we decided to give JC's a 3rd try (in 20 years)...figuring that we would at least be satisfied with the food. NOT! The service was good, and fast, and there were several courses with the entrees. My husband like all the potatoes in the clam chowder, but had to season it himself! The salad... More

We returned to JC's for the third time. Again by 4:30 and we got one of the last tables. The Coquille JC is my favorite. The price for seniors and early birds is so reasonable as are the wine and dessert choices that we order it all. My husband had a prime rib done perfectly medium rare paired with grouper.... More

Don't let the less than fancy outside appearance deter you, The Lobster Pot has a very pleasant, nautical and casual interior motif. And you came for the food anyway, right? You will not be disappointed, the food is excellent. We enjoyed the best lobster we have had since Bar Harbor and the best key lime pie since Key West. Their... More

In the past this has been a fairly reliable location for casual dining, particularly when one has a hankering for fish. But not this time. Let's start with the positives: Quick seating in a (relatively clean) booth away from the register, restrooms and kitchen, an attentive server, the drinks arrived promptly, and the hush puppies and generous cole slaw were...

The food was delicious and the staff was delightful! The clam chowder was authentic and I got one of the platters and lord have mercy it was worth it, such a variety. The wait wasn't too bad and the venue had plenty of space.

As a multi generational Floridian I enjoy JC's Lobster Pot for giving me the feel of old Florida. It's the furthest thing from fancy, but the shrimp is tasty, the chowder is good, and the buffalo shrimp appetizer was a hit too. The salad is pretty basic, but it's served in those old wooden bowls with a taste of nostalgia.... More
