Five of us went for dinner after the Orioles game today. We made reservations which is a good idea because they do get very busy. They have a bar that is also an aquarium so you can watch fish swim by while you drink. Interesting touch! They have an excellent menu with many choices at reasonable prices for good seafood...

A friend suggested and 10 of us went for dinner to the Lazy Lobster. Any restaurant with the word lobster is good enough for my wife to visit. So we started with the excellent lobster bisque. And then we went our separate ways, since I noticed the calf liver on the menu. And what a great choice it was!!! -... More

I say excellent seafood with quotation marks. Yes it is good, but when you're in Florida wouldn't you like to see a lot of local seafood included? Sure they have the usual Grouper and shrimp. But why would I travel 1000 miles south to eat a Maine lobster shipped down south? same holds true with regards to offering scallops. But... More

We went to dinner at the lazy lobster on several occasions , the food is so delicious . Everything is home made. I've had salmon and shrimp there. It's a very nice place to go. You can go for an early bird 4-5:15 which is enough food . Service was excellent . No complaints and can't wait to go back..

Friends who vacation annually on Longboat Key recommended Lazy Lobster to us a few years ago. My wife and I have enjoyed the Longboat Key locations's ambiance and amenities on a couple of occasions. But we learned there is another Lazy Lobster location at 7602 Lockwood Ridge Road in Sarasota. So, on our most recent trip to sunny Florida, we... More

We discovered Lazy Lobster one year ago. My wife and I always eat at a bar in every restaurant when we get the opportunity. Our first dinner on Longboat Key was at LL - the food was good, but the bartender, Courtney, made the experience exceptional. So, last night we introduced our son, Scott, to LL and we sat at...

Celebrating a visit from our son and his wife who wanted seafood pretty bad. From a recommendation of a friend, we stopped by for a wonderful meal. Highly recommend a reservation though as the restaurant is rather small. You won't need a salad because the portions are nice sized. Lobster tail, grilled shrimp and rice accompanied this nice sized platter.... More

My birthday, it was the best, delicious Maine Lobster we ever ate! The 2 hour drive for a great restaurant, looking forward to our next visit! The scallops and bisque were great also! Thank you Ariadna and the manager! Great place!

We went to The Lazy Lobster based on a family recommendation locally. The raw clams were fresh and tasty. We ate off the early bird menu, the portions were dinner sized and plenty for a dinner meal. The restaurant is active, not loud with the service being very good. All of our dishes were great. Good prices.

Thank Casey C
