So many good things on the menu. Go early for early bird specials including their special martini's (really good). My favorites have been coconut flounder and potato crusted gouper. The chicken marsala was just ok.

We had lunch at the Lazy Lobster this week for the first time in a few months. Our experience was inline with what we'd come to expect. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. Nothing particularly fancy, but well done in a casual beachy type of way. The staff is friendly and courteous. The menu is mostly seafood items but... More

The menu at the Lazy Lobster of Longboat Key says something to the effect of, "We want to be your neighborhood restaurant." As my non-husband and I were leaving a couple of weeks ago, I said to him, "I always feel good when we have eaten here" and thought immediately of what a good job owner Michael Garey and his...

My wife and I dined twice at the Lobster in the space of two weeks and I had visited the restaurant several times in recent years. The menu offers a good range of choices but it is particularly good, as the name suggests, in lobster and seafood. Dishes are moderately priced. We both started with a cup of lobster bisque... More

We took the day off to celebrate our 25th anniversary and ended up at the Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key. My mother recommended it and we were very pleased with the quality of the food and our server. We had asked to sit outside but they were short on servers because of the flu and asked if we would mind... More

We ate with family and friends at Lazy Lobster during our visit. Although the food is very good, and at relatively decent prices, the food and drink was definitely not as good as when we came last year. My Bombay Sapphire martini was so-so (disappointing) and the garden salad was BLAH. (Olive Garden salad is better!!). Not the soulful, sumptuous... More

Unable to get reservation for a Thurs evening, opted for 430pm reserve on Friday. Three of us had rum runners-nothing to write home about. Apps of shrimp cocktail ok, lobster scargo very good, bread served was average, peel the wrapping off you butter style. Fairly large menu with fresh catches also. Two of us had double lobster tail entree, third... More

My wife and I enjoyed a late lunch on the patio on a warm December afternoon. Service was proper, prompt, and polite. We enjoyed wine with our lunch which consisted of the house specialty "Stuffed Shrimp Norma" and flounder francaise. Stuffed shrimp Norma consists of large shrimp rolled in pastry with crab, spinach, feta cheese, and lobster cream sauce accompanied... More

We went here for a family get together with a party of 14. The private room was beautiful with photography of birds and the beach on the walls. The waiter was wonderful always making sure our drinks were full and that we were happy at all times. I didn't catch his name but he was clean cut and had dark... More
