This restaurant is right across from Englewood Beach. Its large, and convenient. The Staff is very cheerful and efficient...and the food is great..every single time! This visit we had the half sandwich and seafood gumbo. Delicious!

Food good, service great, Too much noise on busy nights, parking is a hassle. Pricing for what you get. Clean, and good quality.

Service was good appetizers were very good but the dinner fell short. Eight of us were dining and every single one of us felt that our entrées were bland and rather tasteless even though they were all different types of seafood cooked in different ways.

We went for a Friday night dinner around 6pm. With reservations, we were sat at about 6:17pm which isn't bad considering how crammed packed they were already. My first time there - thought that maybe it was kind of loud, plus poorly laid out between...More

Great place for cold drinks and people watching! Happy hour lasts almost all day here - get your pull tab ticket at the bar for a chance of a free drink! Great Bloody Mary's! Food is good.

Just a fun place to hang out after a day on the beach. What fun having pull tabs at the bar during happy hour! Food is always served promptly, too! Cannot wait to return to Lock 'n Key soon!

This restaurant can seat large groups. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Our friend ordered ice cream cake for the table. Two were enough for eight people to share. They are huge and they were fantastic! We will definitely go back.

Don't expect a quite, romantic dinner. It's always crowded and noisy during high season. They do take priority list seating by phone, but not reservations. Indoor seating is a little less hectic, and welcome on cool windy days. Outdoors is where the bar crowd hangs,...More

I love the fried oysters at this restaurant! They are the best anywhere. Can anyone tell me what they are breaded with?

Sorry Kas B. I've never had the fried oysters there but sounds like I should try them! If you haven't tried the lobster rolls you should! Best around!

The Atamanchuk family and the entire staff welcome you to the Lock-N-Key where every entree is a “Specialty of the House.” Our menu items are made fresh from the finest available sources and prepared with loving care by our talented chefs.

Please inform your server of any special request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Great food at great prices. Great entertainment several nights a week. Catch your favorite team on one of our many TVs with your friends or rival comrades. Soak up our gorgeous sunsets or come for lunch and glory in the warmth of Florida.

No matter what the reason… we’ve got a table ready just for you.

If you close your eyes you’ll hear the sounds of small waves tumbling on the gulf sand, the clatter of silverware as patrons dine, and some pleasant chatter amongst friends during a break in the evening’s musical entertainment. Your taste buds are stimulated by the smells of cooking garlic and steak searing on a grill, mixing with fresh odors coming from the salt-water beach across the street, and your body is caressed by a warm Florida breeze.
