We were taking a scenic Easter Sunday ride when we happened upon this restaurant on Longboat Key. Even though they were busy, they took us right in W/O a reservation. The food was excellent and the prices were fair. Highly recomend the Lobsterscargot apppetiser. Chunks of lobster meat prepared as escargot, yumm.

My husband and I came in for dinner with no reservation. It was very busy. We enjoyed $5 martinis at the bar until an outdoor table became available. My husband had the succulent Lazy Lobster while I enjoyed the stuffed shrimp. Both were divine. Great value, plentiful portion sizes, friendly staff, good service. It's a MUST try! Will return.

The Lazy Lobster is not to be missed. The food is wonderful. Everyone at our table loved their entree. Outside dining is lovely (a heater at each table insures you won't be chilly).

We went there for lunch and sat outside. Their house wines were very good and their lobster bisque was to die for! Everyone enjoyed their lunches. My husband had crab cakes and the kids had fish and chips.

The food turned out to be a bit better than average but we waited forever for our food and our wine. It would be understandable to have to wait for a good meal but having to wait for wine and drinks for our group was not acceptable. The food was extremely average and very overpriced, compared to other meals that... More

My husband & I were on vacation on Longboat Key Fl. & were staying a few doors away from the Lazy Lobster - so we decided to try it & were we happy we did. This place is nice - good food & service.

We arrived for "Happy Hour" and found the prices were very reasonable. The service was very good and food delicious. Loved the garden patio.

Very good early-bird value. Good food, moderate priced. Lovely patio on a nice day. In season, you need as advance reservation.

If you are up for a very tasty "Kobe Beef" burger go to the Lazy Lobster as it is one of the best burgers I have ever had! The restaurant has great atmosphere, excellent service, caring owners and when you have a craving for a burger there is no better place that you can go! OK I am getting "burger... More
