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.

We ate here before attending the theater and told the waitress we had to be finished within an hour. Mora, our waitress, not only made excellent recommendations but we were on our way in under an hour. The bread was good and spicy raspberry spread was super. I had the grouper with shrimp which was excellent and substituted brown rice... More

Whenever we are visiting this area, the Lazy Lobster is on our list of must go to. Everything on the menu is delicious, presented well, and generously portioned. Add a comfortable ambiance where you can easily converse with your friends and you'll be headed here too.

Had dinner for 7 here last night. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Lobster tails were very good. Fried tomatoes with Cajun shrimp also very good. I asked for scallops and shrimp to be prepared simply without butter and bread crumbs and they were happy to accommodate! Prices are fair. Portions are not big but adequate. Key lime pie was super tart... More

Visited with a party of six everyone of us ordered different meals. I had the potato encrusted grouper which was very good and a generous portion. We all enjoyed our meals , only complaint Stella beer tastes much nicer in their glasses not just regular pint glasses.
