We hadn’t been to the Lazy Lobster in years. The food has always been good. It’s actually better if that’s possible. The employees are warm and friendly, the service was excellent. I had salmon, my husband had grouper. Delicious.

Nice place but the food was nothing to return for. Service was fine and the price was only slightly elevated considering the average quality of the food. Will probably just travel the additional distance to the one on Longboat Key, next time.

We ate at the bar and it was excellent. The grouper was delicious and the veggies were prepared perfectly. The staff was cheerful and service was excellent. Even though it was crowded, we did not have to wait long for our meals. Always stop here...More
