Friends who vacation annually on Longboat Key recommended Lazy Lobster to us a few years ago. My wife and I have enjoyed the Longboat Key locations's ambiance and amenities on a couple of occasions. But we learned there is another Lazy Lobster location at 7602 Lockwood Ridge Road in Sarasota. So, on our most recent trip to sunny Florida, we... More

We discovered Lazy Lobster one year ago. My wife and I always eat at a bar in every restaurant when we get the opportunity. Our first dinner on Longboat Key was at LL - the food was good, but the bartender, Courtney, made the experience exceptional. So, last night we introduced our son, Scott, to LL and we sat at...

Celebrating a visit from our son and his wife who wanted seafood pretty bad. From a recommendation of a friend, we stopped by for a wonderful meal. Highly recommend a reservation though as the restaurant is rather small. You won't need a salad because the portions are nice sized. Lobster tail, grilled shrimp and rice accompanied this nice sized platter.... More

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
