Always excellent food, eaten their many times on our annual trip to Anna Maria. The au gratin potatoes are to die for, I need the recipe. Lobster is always cooked to perfection. Staff is friendly and easy parking.

We went here for happy hour two nights while staying on Longboat and were very pleased. They offer a happy hour menu and great drink prices from 4-5:30. Domestic beers are $2, Well drinks and house wine are $3.50, Manhattens and martinis are $5. We had the whole main lobster, which comes steamed and out of its shell. Delish! Quite a deal for only $19..also comes with sides. The bartender, Michelle, was very engaging, delightful and efficient. fun place.

The Lazy Lobster of Longboat Key os one of two locations of this local find - the other is in Sarasota. If you're looking for lobster, this is your place. Located at the end of a shopping / office complex, the interior is much darker than we expected. There's nothing "Florida-ish" about it, it could be a family run restaurant anyplace. The patio is where you want to be, although the view is of Gulf Boulevard, the main drag down the island. There are several lobster dishes on the menu, but most come drowning in butter. The sides are nondescript, on the levee of cafeteria food. The service is good, and operates with a mechanical efficiency. This location does a nice business, but that may be due to the fact that there are few decent restaurants at this end of the island. We were surprised that this is the #2 TripAdvisor restaurant on Longboat Key. We guess there's not much competition. It was OK, but we won't go back on our next trip.

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.
