Great service for a group of 8 - we sat in a private room because the table we reserved was not available at set time

Ordered the shrimp dinner with fries and coleslaw. The shrimp were very large and they gave you a large order of them. They had some sort of bread with dipping peppery sort of jelly was just to die for. The atmosphere was very nice and friendly and prices were fair. Will return

I've eaten at Lazy Lobster many times while visiting Longboat and have never had anything less than a fantastic meal there. Amazing! Most often, I order the grouper ... so fresh! And the scalloped potatoes are a good complement. All of the seafood dishes are excellent ... the coconut flounder was delicious, shrimp, scallops, chicken ... what can I add?... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant & went back a second time in a week. I had the Bar Harbor Combo & it was excellent. At first sight I was disappointed at the quantity but really it comes down to quality & it was excellent. It tasted light, great sauce on it & the potato gratin was perfect.

First time, but will certainly return. We were seated right at our reservation time. Staff was very welcoming. Every one was very pleased with their dinner selections. The service was great! Looking forward to our next visit.

Had to wait much longer for our food than anyone around us. Most who ordered at the same time we're done before our food came. Waitress tried to explain away but it really had to do with paying attention. Food was good and waitress did her best to make it right.
