The Lobster Pot is a long-time Hamilton eatery, featuring the best seafood offerings. As you'd guess from the name, they do feature lobster dishes, which seems a bit different given that they bring most of them in from Maine. But, I'm told their lobster is fresh and perfectly prepared.
The Pot has quite a few other nautical offerings, and if I remember, they had steaks as well. So if you're looking for anything from mussels to swordfish, and about everything in between, the Lobster Pot is a tried and true Bermuda Classic.
Favorite Dish: Everything is good at the Lobster Pot, and the reason is that "only the best goes into the pot", per their slogan. They use the freshest ingredients and have been doing this seafood gig for a long, long time.
Among the better appetizers are "Fritz's Famous Fish Chowder" and the lobster bisque. On the chowder, I recommend adding just a bit of the sherry pepper sauce (HOT enough to garner Al Gore's attention re the climate...) and maybe a teaspoon and a half of the Gosling's Black Seal Rum. Umm Ummm.
For a main course, fresh fish is a great choice. You can choose the fish of the day, or several other offerings, and can have it prepared a variety of ways. I chose the Wahoo Steak (my dad caught a huge wahoo in Bermuda when we lived here, and we still have that photo on my parents' wall, so I ordered wahoo in honor of dear old dad), and I had it done "island style", pan fried and topped with bananas and almonds. Bonnie did the local rockfish, and went with the simple "broiled with lemon butter" prep.
Among the other great items on the menu were:
THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE, a combination of shrimps, scallops and fish, broiled or deep-fried and served with tartar sauce or lemon butter
THE SEAFOOD LOVER'S FEAST, ½ Maine lobster, mussels, crab claws, clams and shell on
shrimps, simmered in a saffron stock with vegetables
THE ARGUS TOWER CONNECTION, broiled wahoo, tuna & dolphin all in one boat, topped with tomato and glazed with hollandaise sauce
I also remember that the Lobster Pot had a very nice and tempting dessert menu. Sara went with the chocolate mousse...excellent.
Address: 6 Bermudiana Road, Hamilton
Comparison: about average
Directions: Bermudiana Road turns off Pitts Bay Road, which is actually Front Street JUST to the west of Hamilton. Turn away from the harbor onto Bermudiana. The Pot is about two blocks up, on the left.
