Lock & Key is across the street from the beach, and is an attractive place both inside and out. We had high hopes for our experience, and our visit was o.k. but sadly nothing special. Calamari appetizer was pricey at $12 and was very chewy/undercooked,...More

Sit at the bar and pull a tab to see if you pay full price, half price or .50 for your drink. We had so much fun and their Key Lime martini was delicious!

Continuing my long-time research to find the best fried grouper basket/fingers/sandwich, I continue to rate the Lock N Key on Manasota Key, Englewood, Florida, as the best. No thick beer batter here, just a nice thin coating. Always a good-sized serving of fresh fish. My...More

Go here after you have your fill of the beach and beautiful views. You won't find one here. What you will find is a lively bar crowd with special drinks and friendly servers. The dining area is large and well air conditioned. A delicious salad...More

Sorry Kas B. I've never had the fried oysters there but sounds like I should try them! If you haven't tried the lobster rolls you should! Best around!

The Atamanchuk family and the entire staff welcome you to the Lock-N-Key where every entree is a “Specialty of the House.” Our menu items are made fresh from the finest available sources and prepared with loving care by our talented chefs. Please inform your server of any special request and we will do our best to accommodate you. Great food at great prices. Great entertainment several nights a week. Catch your favorite team on one of our many TVs with your friends or rival comrades. Soak up our gorgeous sunsets or come for lunch and glory in the warmth of Florida. No matter what the reason… we’ve got a table ready just for you. If you close your eyes you’ll hear the sounds of small waves tumbling on the gulf sand, the clatter of silverware as patrons dine, and some pleasant chatter amongst friends during a break in the evening’s musical entertainment. Your taste buds are stimulated by the smells of cooking garlic and steak searing on a grill, mixing with fresh odors coming from the salt-water beach across the street, and your body is caressed by a warm Florida breeze.
