Great food, nice staff, a bit too fancy for kid. Best for adults, nice outside seating area. Shrimp scampi was fabulous, shrimp were huge and fresh.

Very disappointed after being recommended to eat here. Tried the lobster Mac & cheese and very mediocre and overpriced. My husband got the burger and really enjoyed that. I had blackened salmon that was over cooked and flavorless. We will not be back. Everything was bland and needed more seasoning for our liking. The decor was very outdated and waitress not friendly or welcoming.

We wanted to enjoy a special celebration dinner in a memorable setting. Our dinner guests suggested Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key and it was an excellent choice. Salads are a la carte, which when added to an entree a meal runs about $25-$33--not inexpensive, but good value and pleasant relaxed atmosphere. We split a slice if Mango Key Lime Pie--delish!
If you want a very good fish meal that is not franchise (at least I don't think it is!), check out Lazy Lobster in Longboat Key. The drive from Sarasota makes it an event!

Large and varied seafood menu but not much for landlovers. Lobster served multiple ways and all of them are good. Some lobster portions are small for the price so ask the waiter about the ounces in each serving. Outside patio dining is great. Service was excellent and we will be sure to visit again.

The Lazy Lobster is THE go-to restaurant on Longboat Key for good reason. The food is good at reasonable prices, the service is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is typical of old seaside Florida. Well worth your time and money if visiting. Just beware of crowds during the season.
