Outstanding Restaurant

We have had dinner on three successive Wednesdays during our one-month stay on Longboat Key. The food and service are outstanding. It is advisable to call one week in advance for dinner reservations. The Lazy Lobster is deservedly popular.

I didn't have real high hopes when I arrived at the Lazy Lobster. There were certainly plenty of people waiting to get in but when a restaurant serves as many people as the Lazy Lobster does, I didn't expect the quality to be there. I was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed an appetizer, the Maine lobster, and one of their seafood... More

We had a very good meal at Lazy Lobster and enjoyed the evening there with friends. A wide variety of seafood is available in a comfortable dining room atmosphere.

Lazy Lobster did not disappoint! A great menu and food. They started us off with fresh bread and home made pepper jelly-superb! We had the Lobster Mac n'cheese, Shrimp Scampi, Lobster Bisque, Coconut Flounder and Fish & Chips all were mouth watering, delicious! The service was great with TJ. We will return.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner at Lazy Lobster. Seated on their charming Terrace, our group of four ordered Lobster, Flounder and Vegetarian Ravioli and had a wonderful meal! Great service, beautiful surroundings, fabulous food and good value. We'll be back!

We visit this area once or twice a year from Chicago. Lazy Lobster (both locations) is an absolute must everytime we visit. This is our favorite restaurant and we ae never disappointed! Lobster "scargot" is our favorite appetizer. Everything we have ever tried is delicious! The outdoor seating at the Longboat location is wonderful!

Food was great, a large variety with everything to please a crowd. Sadly impossible to get reservations at busy seasonal times. Waiter made a mistake and quickly corrected it and offered a complimentary dish. great recovery to a small mishap!

Great fun. Excellent preparations of top quality products. Prices are higher than last visit due to weather conditions in New England. Worth a visit any way. Enjoy some really good appetizers,,,,,entrees beyond lobster are equally well done. Fish is FRESH!! Warm bread/rolls good but no better than that. Try to get an outside table if weather permits. Excellent bar service... More

We arrived around 7 p.m. and had to wait about half an hour, which is common at Longboat restaurants. But, they have a nice waiting area with high tables and we enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited. We dined outdoors, the ambiance was very pleasant and romantic. David was our waiter and provided excellent service. The entries (mahi... More

Went to the Lazy Lobster for lunch on a Sunday. Decided to go early as we were told that it would be very busy. Must have come at the right time, as there was no problem getting an outdoor table. Half hour later though, all tables were occupied. Excellent service and atmosphere. The garlic cream sauce mussel appetizer, lobster bisque... More
