My parents live not too far from it and it's one of their favorite restaurants and a must do for me when I visit. I had a very enjoyable lunch their yesterday. I am usually there in the summer so eating outside is out of the question but I finally got to eat on the patio yesterday and it was... More

At first glance the Lazy Lobster does not seem to have a nice atmosphere due to the location in a small shopping center. However, the restaurant is located on the end of the shopping center. It has a lovely outdoor patio with heaters, tables with pretty umbrellas, and lots of privacy. The food was simply amazing. My husband had the... More

Was not disappointed in any way with our meal. I had ribs and shrimp. Plenty to eat and a very fair price. Service was exceptional. The whole experience was 1st class.

We have eaten at this restaurant on three occasions and will go again. Early bird eating will save your budget but a good value anytime. Varied menu, pleasant surroundings, and good service make this restaurant a very popular place to dine. No disappointments!

The Lazy Lobster is still a good bet for reasonably priced but good food on Longboat Key. The lobster Mac and cheese is an outstanding appetizer and the overall prices for a lobster dinner are reasonable. But make sure to make a reservations! Very popular and it books up quickly, particularly during the "season".

The Lazy Lobster of Longboat ( Key ) is on the north end of the island nestled in a pretty shopping strip called The Center Shops. There is indoor dining as well as a lovely patio surrounded by greenery and sheltered under large colorful umbrellas. The menu leans mainly to shellfish and fish, but there are several options for landlubbers.... More

My wife and I ate at the Lazy Lobster on a recent vacation to Longboat Key. When we arrived we were told it would be a 30 minute wait if we decided to eat inside but could eat outside with no wait. We chose outside and it was nice with heaters to keep us warm on a cool night. We... More

My husband had the lunch special, a crab cake sandwich consisting of two nice-sized crab cakes served open faced on bread and a side of fries. I had the 5 oz lobster tail, which came with sides of au gratin potatoes and green beans. Both meals were very good, and I especially liked the potatoes. I tasted my husband's crab... More

We had the coconut shrimp, lobster roll and lobster bisque. All were wonderful but the coconut shrimp was our favorite. Everything was prepared and presented perfectly. The service was excellent. We might go back tomorrow!
