Great fun and fun people. This restaurant is right off the beach and the drinks are cold! Live music often to enjoy. The food is great! We go here often.

Spent a week on the enchanted manasota key. Can't wait to come back! Ate at the Lock several times. Never disappointed. Food is fresh, tasty and prepared well! friendly attentive service. Grouper Rocket sandwich to die for!

We have eaten here numerous times. The food is consistently fresh and always good. Reasonable prices. Outdoor seating. Across from the public beach.

Quickly seated, pleasant staff. Silverware and glassware dirty. Both my spouse and I ordered a fish which was good, but it was paired with what tasted like instant potatoes, cheap undercooked rice and green beans. Why ruin a nice piece of fish with such inadequate sides. The floor was carpet and very dated. We had to park across the street... More

Have been here many times and never been disappointed in service or food. Only complaint is its small inside with many tables and very noisy when busy. They do have outside seating that is not so loud. Some different items menu.

Tiny patio but it was still great to sit in the sun! Food was nothing to write home about but was decent.

The food and drinks were okay--nothing special. Our server was good, and the staff seemed to be working hard yet were smiling--especially the cute busboy with a surfer look! 😃

The food and drink at this restaurant was good - my wife and mine was great, the couple we were with not so much - extremely rare steak and grisly prime. Very close to the road, so from time to time you'd get Harley noise and fumes from road.

crowded and noisy but in a good way. everyone had plenty of room and the noise was people having a great time. Food was excellent and waiter was helpful and very friendly. Would recommend to anyone in the area. Desserts looked fantastic.

We were a party of four and Lock 'n Key came highly recommended. The service was very slow and once we got our meals, the food was less than warm, dare I say cold. I have no idea how long the scallops sat but there was no re-warming as this would make them, according to the server "over-cooked". Very disappointing.
