At the recommendation of the manager at the condos where we were staying, we tried Lazy Lobster. We made a reservation (highly recommended!) and, after a brief wait, were seated at a very nice table by a very nice hostess. Our waitress (who happened to be the mother of our hostess!) was beyond fantastic. She was friendly, knew the menu very well and was extremely attentive. While my friends ordered tasty cocktails from the bar, she was able to bring (pregnant!) me a virgin strawberry something-or-other that was absolutely delicious, so the bar gets a big thumbs-up, too. We ordered a variety of selections form the menu. I had the stuffed mushrooms, a side spinach salad and the filet mignon with lobster tail. I was very impressed with each dish and was pleased to see that my medium-rare filet was cooked to perfection. The potatoes gratin that are served with most beef dishes were also delicious. Friends ordered the Big Bang shrimp and, while I didn't personally get a taste, they both agreed that it was the best shrimp they'd eaten! I ordered a strawberry and white cake dessert (off-menu nightly special) that was delicious. Friends ordered from the dessert menu and were equally impressed with their chocolate selections. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this restaurant if I find myself in Longboat Key again!
