Had a wonderful family dinner at the Lazy Lobster. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The filet mignonette and ribs were excellent. My son said the gumbo is the best he had ever had! We will definitely go back. Reservations are necessary.

Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal...no complaints. Pricey, but good value. It was stormy so we sat inside. We loved the 3 dessert combo which we shared.
