Nice restaurant

Nice restaurant, tried the seafood gumbo and seafood combo (cajun). Seafood Combo was great, gumbo was too much like chili or stew, couldn't taste the seafood. Lots of flies in the restaurant.

Rather high priced, shrimp was mushy. Drinks cold but pricy. Staff was nice. Maybe good place for a cocktail

Have eaten here many, many times. Lunch and dinner-consistently great food AND service. Whether inside or out, at the bar, they are always on their A-game.

What a busy joint! Everyone seems happy and friendly here..the wait staff, the servers, the patrons! Who wouldn't be happy looking over the gorgeous Gulf Coast of Englewood, Florida after a day on the beach, meeting new people, drinking, dining and just having a grand ol' time watching the sun go down?? And, the pull tabs for drink specials is... More

Brett is the man, he is one of the bartenders and took good care of us during our visit! We will be back for sure, the Blackened Grouper was the best I have ever had.

This place was recommended by a couple of relatives and we're glad we went. Outside is somewhat deceiving, looks small and limited parking, but there is plenty of parking in the rear of the building. There is outside dining but also a large air conditioned dining room inside. Although the menu looks a little pricy, the portions are quite large.... More

I've visited the Lock 'n Key a few times while visiting family in the area. Although I've had several items on the menu I haven't found the WOW seafood dish you would hope to find. That being said the desserts are VERY good and it is a short walk across the street to the beach.

Happy hour is a blast! Food is great and the prices are really good. Parking is a bit shady. But after a great meal a walk on the beach is a must!!
