Popular restaurant at Englewood Beach

We had lunch at Lock 'n Key for the first time in early March. The food and service were excellent. This is a very busy place. Go early to get in and get seated.

We called ahead to get "Priority Seating" which is different than a reservation which they don't offer. Priority Seating puts you at the top of the waiting list ahead of the drop-ins. We arrived 10 min early (6:20 pm) and were seated immediately. Parking lot was busy but we got a spot right away plus there was a valet to... More

We like beach bars...Had one of the best burgers here. Often stop at a beach bar on the way home from Englewood Beach or Stump Pass. You won't be disappointed here. Go at Happy hour time and they give you a card to open to see how much you pay. Last time I got full price but my wife got... More

The Lock and Key's food is always excellent. You can count on good food for a decent price. Try the South Beach Salad or Prime Rib Sandwich. Real grouper fixed just the way you like it.

Tried Lock'n Key several times while on our extended vacation in the Englewood Beach area. Each time the food was awesome and plentiful. Very good staff and service was good.

Service was fine and attentive without hovering. Server was knowledgeable. I had hog fish (for the first time); similar to hake (white, flakes easily, higher oil content than haddock). Fish was good to excellent. I felt there was more of a bar scene, with outside seating and music, than restaurant atmosphere. Even the dinning room was very noisy.

We arrived at 8 after calling ahead and were promptly seated. They had an ad on the table about texting a code to win a free appetizer and Woot! Woot! We won! We chose the conch fritters. Don't. They were doughy and chewy. For entrees my wife got the grilled seafood combo and I got the Key Largo grouper. Mine... More

They have great deals before 6:00, meals that are $6.00 and very tasty. Outdoor seating across from the Englewood Beach.

Amazing food and service! Prime rib and macadamia chicken are the bomb. Seriously a do not miss when in the area. The coconut pie is sumptuous! Sunset view is perfect and the music wasn't bad either.

This is a great location for the view since it is across from the lovely and charming Englewood Beach. The property itself is casual, 'old Florida' style and a fairly sizable facility, which you might not realize from the outside. You can sit inside or outside of this restaurant and watch the sunset and that is a treat in itself.... More
