My neighbors and friends treated me to lunch here today for my birthday and I must admit the food this time was really, really good. Waitress extremely surly, I don't know what her problem was, but since my friends were celebrating me, I really only cared about their company and the food. And thank God that was good. Sometimes you... More

The stuffed shrimp and grouper were excellent. We were seated right away and our waitress was attentive. You could tell the locals love this place.

I just returned from a two week vacation visiting my sister who lives in Port Charlotte. I made it my mission to visit every tiki bar and pub within reasonable driving distance. Lock n' Key wins by a landslide!! I visited there at least four times during my stay (twice for lunch and twice for dinner) and the staff never... More

The Lock n Key is very convenient on Manasota Key. The food is very expensive for the type but the early bird deal seems reasonable. What we ordered was okay just not great. Looked like everything was like that. Go, enjoy the atmosphere. Don't have high food expectations.

On June 23rd I made another visit for dinner with my local friends. I ordered the Mango Tango Mai-Mai (one of the dinner specials for that night) and it was excellent. It was a little pricey but I think it was worth it. My friends, who are locals, come here quite often and they always enjoy it. No band playing... More

A few girlfriends and I were looking for late-night drinks and dessert after a day in the sun and the Lock and Key delivered. The atmosphere is casual and upbeat, there was live music outside, and we definitely appreciated the air conditioning! Desserts were huge, drinks were fun and we made way too much noise (but no one cared!)

We tried the Lock N Key for some seafood, and were very pleased with the meals. Grouper sandwich was delicious, and so were the lobster rolls. Tried the conch fritters, but didn't care for them so much. The prices seemed a little high but the food was excellently prepared. Nice atmosphere and friendly helpful service!

Am a year round resident here and have been to Lock n Key too many times to recall. The food is far inferior to what it was, prices have increased significantly, and frequently the outside dining area is taken over by musical acts that play much too loudly for anyone that is there to enjoy a meal and the company...

Our fishing guide Cameron Schurlknight recommended this eatery and both lunch and dinner were incredible. The chef will prepare the fish caught that day. All salads come with homemade pumpkin bread which is also available to take home. Chris the manager was attentive, personable and genuinely solicited each diner's dining feedback. Highly recommended.
