“good food but can be noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We had one dinner at The Lazy Lobster and enjoyed it. The food was nicely cooked and the prices were reasonable. The menu is quite broad with a good selection of seafood dishes and also a good choice of beef and chicken for those who are not lovers of seafood. We had the barramundi with salad and chips for $24.95) and we were very happy with it.

Our only complaint is that it was difficult to carry on a conversation as there is a neighbouring Japanese restaurant that has a cook who entertains with his knives and does a lot of yelling. While this may be great for his customers, it is not much fun for people eating at the Lazy Lobster.

“Very disappointing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

A really great effort by a very friendly, helpful and professional greeter/server was totally ruined by the food which was not good. We had a selection of meals from entres, mains and salad all of which were just ok. In particular my main of a fish special was inedible, flavours were questionable and overly heavy and not enjoyable. Sadly I won't try this restaurant again as I love the location and it is close to family we visit regularly.

“Great venue, great seafood, great value, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

If you are visiting the Gold Coast - or live there - then eat great seafood at sensible prices at Lazy Lobster. Great salads too. Good unpretentious wine list, cocktails too! Watch the boating action on the Broadwater as you hoover through the range of Queensland's best catches. Choices other than seafood are available too, like Eastern European versions of chicken in sauces. Half price menus at lunchtime. Casual. Very friendly atmosphere; outdoor and indoor seating. Labrador is about a 10 minute taxi ride form the centre of Surfers Paradise. Open from 11.30am. We eat here happily - and often.

“Great service but food lets it down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

I've eaten here a few times over the years as one of my relatives likes it. Service has always been quite good but the food has been a bit variable. This time I ordered the bug tail pappardelle which, in the past has been sublime, with just a hint of cream and Sambucca. Unfortunately, this time the sauce was clearly cream and tomato and not a lot else happening. One of the party ordered a completely different pasta and it tasted like our sauces came from the same pot. The bug tails were also decidedly tough. I will probably eat here again if I cannot talk the relatives out of it, but only under protest.
