This was as wonderful restaurant, and the atmosphere was "Great!" I had a smoked grouper and fry sandwich, and was so "Delicious!" My son got up the next day and went and bought him one while we on the beach. The prices was very reasonable. A must place to eat!

We went here because we knew they would cook your catch, so my husband wanted them to do that. The food was fine, but nothing spectacular. I was surprised how small it was. They have a kids menu, but the place was definitely not geared towards children - it was more of booths at a bar. Felt kind of dirty,... More

Get there early and sit at the bar. Wait for a table can be VERY LONG. Besides, service is fast at the bar and the scene is a nice one. Great staff. Delicious grouper sandwiches. Have been going there for years and have never ordered anything else so can't help you with the rest of the menu. Got to think... More

Brought in our fresh caught filets of mangrove snapper and redfish. The management immediately greeted me and was very responsive in explaining how the fish could be prepared (options). The next thing I know I'm dining with the best prepared mangrove snapper and redfish Thanks to the management, staff and cooks at the Lazy Flamingo.

So we never figured out if they were locals or actually worked there, but a couple at the bar helped us figure out where to grab menus, that we should seat ourselves, and a spot we she go to place our order. These same kind folks often took food out to people because apparently they don't do that either. That's... More

Unaware you give your order at the bar and pick up at the bar, otherwise ok. Stacey behind the bar was friendly. Cook in back came out to talk with folks. Both S.I. and I had specials: mesquite grilled grouper which SI said was cooked perfectly and Buffalo grilled shrimp skewers which again were cooked perfectly. Tiny container of so... More

The seafood was very fresh, has a raw bar, service was excellent, and the beer was ice gold! Lots of decor to look at while you are eating. Family friendly. Great night out.
