First visit. I had the Flounder wife shrimp&lobster tacos. Both very good. Its a small restaurant located in strip mall but the place feels very comfortable. Service was excellent...from time we walked in until we feft. I do recommend. Ron

It was another trip to lovely Long Boat Key for the Early Bird Specials that are such a good value. We even ran into some old friends we hadn’t seen in some time who were also enjoying the fine food, excellent service, great value and delicious meals.

We have been to the Lazy Lobster quite a few times and have never been disappointed in every aspect of quality that this restaurant offers. Each table has clean cloths, nice dinnerware, and adequate room without feeling squeezed into a tight little space.

Our waitress was delightful and bantered with us as we ordered. I had the shrimp scampi over linguine which was excellent and my wife had a beautiful piece of fish with green beans and scalloped potatoes which she loved. Her meal was $8.99 and mine was $11.99. Great value, beautifully presented and wonderfully delicious!

The proprietor always makes the rounds to ensure his guests are getting the proper experience he expects-a nice touch that other establishments could easily emulate.

this was our first visit to the lazy lobster on Lockwood Ridge Road and we were surprised how good the food was. the restaurant is in a "strip mall" but when you pull in and see a Bently, Audi & MB in front - you know it's good food! very small inside and plain decor but very good food. excellent new england clam chowder, salmon, lobster and red snapper. group of 7 and their mouths were watering for lobster when I told them we were going. they all were THRILLED with their lobster dinners and walked out very happy people. $250.00 for the 7 of us. it we would have stayed in St. Armands circle and all had lobster dinners we would have spent close to $450.00. it's definitely worth getting out of the circle and going for a little drive for an excellent dinner. definitely a place to go again when we are in town.

We had never been to this restaurant and actually found it on this site. After reading all the reviews, we thought we would give it a shot. For me, just that they took reservations on a holiday weekend, had my attention. We were seated right away, service was great, our food was prepared just right and for five people, the bill was certainly reasonable! Certainly will be returning, we left with full stomachs and a smile!

We stopped in during spring break on a Sunday night without a reservation and were seated right away. The food was fantastic, but we felt rushed. My guess is this was because we had our 2 month old with us. Regardless the food was great and we'd definitely return next time. It isn't casual, as you might expect since it is in a strip mall. We were in shorts and definitely felt underdressed.
