I went here with my two kids and mother, expecting it to be a fun laid back lobster joint. It's not, it's more of a stuffy upscale atmosphere and not exactly a place for kids. We were easily the youngest people in this place - we felt out of place for sure. Food was okay, expensive with tiny... read more

They seated and served our party of 7 with ease. Food was very tasty-- the grouper with a gluten free mustard sauce stole the show- delicious. Quick and attentive server made it a lot of fun.

Fantastic fish and shellfish. We ate there several times during our 3 month stay. Every meal was delicious. The service could be slowed down a bit to make dimmer a more relaxed dining experience. We found all restaurants in the sarasota area to rush meals and had to ask the waiters specifically for a break between appetizer and entree.

Great Lobster as well as other Seafood. The restaurant is very popular so make reservation at least a week in advance. If you want to sit outside in the Garden there is a wait even with reservations. My Lobster and my wife's Scallops risotto were excellent! Would highly recommend!

The food, atmosphere, and service were top-notch! We arrived late in the evening and were seated on the outside patio which was so romantic! What a great find on our first night in Longboat Key, FL.

What a delight! This friendly and very comfortable restaurant has a real hands on and personal touch. The food is really good and won't cost you an arm and a leg. I had the mahi with fried green tomatoes and mac and cheese. Amazingly it all went together extremely well and was delicious. Great place and I will go there... More

Excellent service, nice menu with interesting items. We came to the early dining time, 4pm-5:30, where they have a special menu where you can find somewhat smaller portions at a good price. We helped ourselves to appetizers (stuffed shrimp and stuffed mushrooms). I had the tilapia, my wife the filet mignon. One in our party had the Captains Choice which... More

This was by far one of the best restaurants we have been to in the area. The food was beyond good more in the realm of unforgettable! I had lobster escargot. OMG I could have eaten two portions. The service on the other hand was not great. We kept asking for rolls but couldn't seem to score any. We were... More

We've been going to Longboat Key for six years and Lazy Lobster is always our first night and last night dinner. Very casual atmosphere and the seafood preparation is very creative and tasty. Make reservation a few days in advance because this place fills up.
