Consistently the best restaurant on Longboat Key for a quality meal, outside if weather permits, for a reasonable price. Happy hour is really a bargain and early bird (yes, Virginia, Floridians believe in early bird specials and Santa) meals that are a bargain. No, there is no water view but sometimes a good meal at a clean restaurant for less... More

The Lazy Lobster is a delightful, airy and delicious place for lunch or dinner. It is located in the Centre Shops on Longboat Key, Fl. The restaurant offers a broad menu that will appeal to most appetites and has lovely ambiance in which to dine. Amongst my favorites, lobster in many varied preparations, cocoanut shrimp, grilled grouper, angus steak hamburgers... More

Both had twin grilled lobster tails with Au gratin potatoes and NE clam chowder. Ice cream for dessert all for less than $30. How can you go wrong ?

Service and food excellent. You have to try the lobster "scargo". Best appetizer ever. Early bird value was very good, but we'd be back, early bird or not. Outside seating would be very nice when the weather cools off some. Staff is very attentive. Water always filled and management around to make sure all is good, and it was.

No matter when I've been to Lazy Lobster it's always good. Service is also good. Because it's still boy the winter season, no snowbirds, we didn't need a reservation. But in season if you don't have one, better go elsewhere.

My husband and I enjoyed the cozy and welcoming ambience of The Lazy Lobster. Our candlelit dinners were scrumptious. I chose pan seared sea scallops and butternut squash ravioli with citrus cream sauce. My husband enjoyed a generous portion of grouper served with a mustard sauce, green beans and rice. The waiter was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!

We visit longboat key often and always eat at The Lazy Lobster! The staff is friendly and provides great service. We ate here twice this trip (once with the kids and once without). We were able to take advantage of the early dining specials one time...$5 martini sand $3.50 for house wine was a great deal. Everything I have ever... More

Lazy Lobster is a local restaurant in Sarasota with 3 (I think) locations. As my wife and I vacation on Longboat Key every year in September, we were happy to see this location open a couple of years ago. September is definitely off-season on Longboat and many restaurants are closed for vacation or have limited hours. When we tried LL... More

Right across the street from Sandpiper Inn and a couple of other overnight accommodations. Nice ambiance. I was alone on this trip but nice for romance. Lobster yummy. But there was lots of other seafood and non-seafood on the menu.
