Visited the Lazy Lobster on the recommendation of friends living locally. It isn't your typical beach side restaurant with beautiful sunset views as is located in the central shopping area on Longboat Key. But the food is excellent and imaginative. I had potato crushed grouper and my wife had the lazy lobster. Both were very good and made me want... More

The Lazy Lobster has a very interesting menu which actually "lives up" to its enticement. Typical seafood is well prepared - but - that is as it should be (and, is available at many places). What they carry-off quite well are the more unusual dishes (try the lobster escargot but, ask them to leave off the cheese). We were 4... More

My wife, daughter and I went to dinner here for our first time last week. The outside seating area is nice and covered with Live Florida Oaks. Inside had a small but busy bar with everyone eating. Ask to sit by the fish tank if you have kids. I had a baked stuffed lobster and enjoyed getting messy while digging... More

the service is good, the drinks are fine. My problem is that the food, for the most part is too heavy too and rich. The lobster mac and cheese is very good. We also tried the crab cakes and they were not that good. This place has the feel of a chain. It also is very popular and busy in... More

I had a large celebration dinner here with family and though we were loud and probably quite demanding (NY-natives vacationing in FL, you can only imagine), the staff was extremely forgiving and exceeded our high expectations. The owner/manager greeted us at the door and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Now, the FOOD! It is truly delicious. I had... More

We had a wonderful time at the Lazy Lobster. Must try their Lobster Mac & Cheese. I had their Bar Harbor dish, very delicious. My wife had the 6 oz. lazy lobster dish. You have the choice between 4 ,6 or 8 oz. of pure meat served in butter. Fast friendly service.

Great restaurant! Wonderful location, clean, delicious and reasonably priced seafood. Terrific service. They take reservations, which many local restaurants don't. Great early bird specials!

We have been here many times and it is always the best. Last night I had the 8 oz lazy lobster and it was the best lobster I have ever had...anywhere. My husband had the filet and added a lobster tail, the steak simply melted in your mouth and was well seasoned. We both love the potatoes and fresh veggies.... More

We've been here on previous Longboat Key stays and unlike some local restaurants The Lazy Lobster still serves a very good meal. They will remain on our list until that does change.
