One of the best restaurants in the area and that is saying a lot in the longboat key area. Crusted grouper is the best. My wife loved the crab cakes and warm spinach salad.

This is a fun, cozy/casual restaurant located on Longboat Key. No ocean views, but the decor is clean and casual, the drinks are great, and the seafood offerings are fresh and well prepared. We enjoyed the lobster special, shrimp Dianne, and a wonderful spinach salad with a bacon dressing. The food is delicious, and we enjoyed sitting and relaxing on... More

I measure others seafood places against the Lazy Lobster. The Lazy Lobster is much better, than other seafood places. When you throw in the reasonable prizes it hit s homerun.

I went to the location on Longboat Key. The food and service are top notch! Lovely atmosphere too. The friendly hostess even remembered me the next night I dined there - what a memory! Anna was my waitress and she was fabulous! - ask for her table! The food was awesome! I was able to enjoy the last 2 days... More

Went to the early bird dinner. It did not include a soup or salad so that was extra. I ordered the small Caesar salad which was excellent. My husband ordered the gumbo and it was mediocre with too much rice and lacking in flavor. For my main course, I order their specialty, the Shrimp Norma, which I've had before and... More

Recommended by the beach resort we were staying in. Fantastic food, friendly service and attractive environment. So enjoyable we returned the next evening, $70 including drinks and appetisers . Surely the bargain of the holiday, filet mignon at $23!

Reviews were pretty good so we decided to give it a try. Casual dining: try for a table overlooking the garden - super lovely. From the moment we walked in the door to leaving the restaurant, the staff was delightful. Every single staff member was friendly, attentive and knew their business! Anna, our waitress, really stood out as amazing ~... More

Wow! A cozy restaurant tucked into a small strip plaza that all of the locals frequent proved to be the best dining experience of our vacation to Longboat Key, FL. We preferred it to the nice restaurants we tried in St. Armand's Circle! We loved it so much we went twice during the week! Friendly, service-oriented. The owner roaming the... More
