While taking a mini staycation in Cape Coral we ventured to The Lobster Lady. Researching places to eat this was the only restaurant we decided we had to try. The Seafood Tower in all honesty is what made it appeal to us, that and well just being huge seafood fans. One of the biggest things with seafood is freshness, and knowing that this place is a market as well weighed in on our choice of the lobster lady. The fewer steps from the ocean to your plate the better the meal.
We joined some friends with all the kids in tow so had the chance to order and try an extensive amount of the menu. On top of that, it was Thursday and their special is half off appetizers, so we definitely got to have a good food tour of the menu.
Fried Lobster Bites
This was a quarter-pound handpicked lobster meat, cayenne pepper flour, sriracha, sweet citrus aioli scur. The menu says bites but these are full-on multiple bites needed junks of lobster Claw and meat.
This was ranted and raved about on multiple sites and reviews but honestly wasn’t to huge of a fan, it was tasty and done right just not really my cup of tea. It had a little kick to it but kind of seamed like cayenne pepper was just sprinkled over the dish.
Fried Gator Bites
7oz chunked filet, buttermilk, seasoned flour, sriracha garlic aioli. Always a crowd please for our family and being locals to gator country we know good gator bites. We always add a side of honey mustard because it goes perfectly with the bites.
WASABI TUNA DEVILED EGGS
Hard-boiled eggs, wasabi, wakame, tuna, cucumber, wasabi sauce, ginger, sesame seeds. This is by far one of the most interesting dishes I have ever tried. It was definitely a bombardment of textures on your palate when you bite into it. Just the uniqueness of this dish makes it worth trying and as a $7 appetizer if you are sharing not much risk of disliking it.
Buffalo mozzarella, sliced tomato, fresh basil, pico de gallo, herb dressing, balsamic glaze.
Rings and tentacles, parmesan cheese, marinara or Thai chili sauce, these were honestly just out of this world. Some of the best Calamari I have ever tasted.
Although just mac and cheese and chicken tenders you can’t help but appreciate pretty platting done for the little ones.
We also tried some of their specialty drinks and we were very impressed with them, as well as some local craft beers including a Fort Myers IPA and the Lobster Lady Red Ale that were great.
