Fabulous!

Had a really nice meal here. The lobster dinner was wonderful, the drinks were wonderful and so was the service. The prices are really not bad at all for the area.

We had an anniversary lunch here. We both had lobster; I had the lobster tail, my husband had the Lazy Man Lobster. Our server was quick to arrive and take our drink orders, which arrived quickly. We were served warm rolls with butter and a spicy jelly - my husband loved it, I did not but just because I don't... More

An evening of salads, bread, followed by entrees- lobster linguini and (wife) swordfish, spinach, & mashed potatoes. Server was efficient and timely. Entrees were done to perfection! Key lime pie topped off a lovely evening of dining. We will be back!

This place is within 200 yards of our condo and is absolutely a must every time. The lobster choices are all delicious as are the fresh fish plates. Served in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere inside and out, the Lazy Lobster is a family favorite of ours as well as a great place for couples. Always meet the nicest people... More

Friends, who had been here before, invited us to go with for a late lunch; arrived at 2:30 and were seated immediately. I had the Burbon Salmon; it came with rice and green beans. Others in the group had lobster rolls and a soup and sandwich special. Everything/everything was great right down to the chips that came with the lobster... More

Good selection of eats but parking can be a hassle due to size of lot and the number of different stores. Very crowded on weekends and holidays.

I had several people tell me about this restaurant and they said it was a must during my stay in Anna Maria! It was well worth the 20 minute drive. We could only sit in the bar area but, that was fine with me. The service was impeccable as well as dinner! Would recommend it highly....a must in my opinion!... More

Second time eating here, of all the places we ate around the area, by far the best. Had there Key West shrimp, the shrimp are huge, along with fries and coleslaw, I was stuffed. The coleslaw is wonderful, everything about the place is wonderful. Prices are very responsible for what you get to eat, and have not had bad service... More
