Excellent food and service

Have made this a regular stop during spring visits to family and spring training baseball. Food is always good, staff always friendly, and tables always available (if you call ahead). Some of the best seafood I've had in Florida

Friends and family visited this restaurant in the past for lunch so while in the area I decided to try it for dinner. Reservations are required unless you want to take your chances on dining out on the patio on a first come basis. Dinner begins with excellent warm rolls. I ordered a house salad which was good but nothing... More

This restaurant was just minutes from where we are staying in Longboat Key. The restaurant is very nice with a large aquarium with many colorful fish. I had the stuffed shrimp Norma and my husband had the lobster and scallops. They were both excellent. The stuffed shrimp had a very tasty vodka sauce that was mouthwatering. The wIter was very...

The food is excellent and the atmosphere is elegant/high end but not snooty. Excellent service and just the right amount of attention to give you a feeling of "importance" to the management. They care that you are there and that your experience is special

Food and atmosphere were wonderful. Our group mostly had seafood but I had Steak along with my shrimp and it was perfectly cooked. The desserts were all really good too.

Lazy Lobster offers a great menu at reasonable prices. A favorite is the Lobster Bisque, and they do a great Mac & Cheese dish as well. What I enjoy the most is that the owner, Michael Garey, knows his customers well, and is never too busy to stop by and say hello.

We just moved down to Longboat Key and have eaten several times with friends and family here. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced if you go during the early bird specials. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. As it is their slow season we got a table without a reservation but once the fall and winter comes, reservations... More

Luxury food superb service and surroundings at a reasonable price. A much larger restaurant with elegant interior than external appearance conveys. Well worth a visit, would have gone back but only tried it on our final evening.

Twin lobster tails were really good, but the melted butter is a house specialty served cold. I did ask and get drawn butter, which was much better. The potatoes gratin were really good!! Great dinner and service!!
