Accomodating friendly staff, restaurant clean, uncrowded, and well presented. Food presentation excellent. Had seafood platter, cold seafood delicious and well presented. Calamari and sea scallops bit over cooked. Delicious, will return.

Mine was fantastic however my wife thought the... More

The absolute best Bugtail Pappardelle in southeast Queensland!! I'm in love and so well priced. Staff were so friendly and knowledgeable about their food and wine. Service was second to none. Do your tastebuds a favour and give them flavour!! A big thankyou from Athena

This was my second visit to The Lazy Lobster and, if possible, the delicately prepared gourmet cuisine was even better this time around. The restaurant offers a savory fish menu and a fantastic wine list, all served with family pride and cooked to perfection. The prices are very reasonable and the attention to the dining customers makes you feel completely... More

My extended family all had dinner here. Between all of us we had oysters, bugs, lobster, prawns and battered fish. Seafood all tasted fresh and well cooked. Kids were well catered for. Kids food came out very quick which was great. My son enjoyed the garlic bread in particular. All in all a great night. Well done Lazy Lobster crew!
