We tried Lazy Lobster for the first time this year and enjoyed it very much. My wife and I both had the lobster thermidor and we can thoroughly recommend it. They serve the most delicious cocktails. Service was excellent.

Just returned from a delicious meal with my family while vacationing in Longboat Key. We enjoyed the lobster Mac-n-Cheese and key lime pie for dessert. Do yourself a favor and eat here. Sure am glad we did.

Though we have been to Longboat Key and the Sarasota area many times in the past, my wife and I had never eaten at the Lazy Lobster. We came for the Early Dinner on a Wednesday. We both had the Lobster Bisque followed by the Orange Blossom Honey Bee Sting Mahi for me and the Lobster Mac & Cheese. We... More

The Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key--there also is a twin brother located on North Lockwood Road in Sarasota--was recommended to us by a friend who discovered it while vacationing on Anna Maria Island. Until then, we had been staying on Siesta Key and rarely ventured north of St. Armands Circle. But it was worth the trip. And it also opened... More

Went in during "Early Bird" for dinner (4 to 5:30 pm). Just us two adults. Greeted excitedly by hostess and was sat at a nice table quickly. Mixture of patrons including multiple generation families, couples and nuclear families. Water and bread for table brought almost immediately. Drink orders and appetizers were being enjoyed by us within 10 min of sitting... More

We ate here on our last night in Longboat Key. We were seated promptly thanks to their call ahead seating service and the entrees were served very quickly.The food was excellent. My husband and I chose from their July specials menu and were both impressed with our meals. As they were lobster dishes, the portions may have looked small to... More

Its been a year since my wife and I ate here. Again the service was very good. The food: yum. My wife ordered the Bermuda Spiced Salmon which she loved. I had their shrimp scampi which was very good. I really appreciate how friendly all of their staff are and the best part about is that it is genuine. We... More

We travelled to Longboat Key as a trip from our place in St. Pete Beach. I asked Siri to find me a restaurant nearby and they guided me to the lazy lobster. I looked up on trip advisor and was amazed at the excellent reviews! We were there on a busy Saturday but they were quick to accommodate us in... More

Have eaten here about 4 or 5 times. Have never had a bad meal or bad service. I highly recommend this restaurant. Suggest you get a reservation. Hard to get in as a walk in.
