Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This may be one of those places that used to be really good, in its day, perhaps, but to us the whole place looks tired, old and dirty. First thing we noticed when walking in was the once white vinyl chairs, filthy with dirty stains,...hand prints and marks. Quite honestly we both felt like walking back out, I wouldn't expect guests to eat in my home whilst sitting on chairs like this let alone paying customers. Staff were over attentive and there seemed too many staff for the few customers there. As soon as the last sip was drunk a glass was whisked away, the last bite and the plate was taken, unrelaxed, rushed and plain annoying. Oysters were good as was the bread and dips, however the seafood basket and flathead fillets were both overcooked, seafood dried out and quite tasteless. Some of the battered items were very greasy also. Not able to recommend this restaurant unfortunatelyMore

We made a booking online (which I’m glad we did, as the place was otherwise packed on a Monday night) and were warmly welcomed. Not too stuffy, staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was both of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. Would...very happily go again!More

If you like seafood then this a must. Fresh fish and seafood options to meet all tastes. If seafood isn’t your thing they have other options.

We have visited the Lazy Lobster several times over the last seven years. Admittedly it has been two years since we have been here, but we were not prepared for such a decline in the food. We had the bread and trio of dips to...start and can't complain, good bread, nice dips, nothing to write home about. It's hard to stuff up bread and dip. For main we had the seafood basket. When it came out I honestly looked around for the "takeaway" shop, it was a very small amount of greasy looking crumbed and battered seafood! The scallops were nice, again nothing to go back for, same with the calamari and chips. The fish and the prawns were coated in a heavy undercooked batter that left my stomach rolling and my palate wondering where the actual seafood was. Would not recommend, will not go back, had to eat toast when I got home as was sooo hungry! Also amazed that no one asked us how our meal was, was pretty obvious from the half eaten food it was bad. Maybe they are sick of customers telling them it was not goodMore

The restaurant advertised to be open to 3PM. We visited on a Tuesday at 1.30PM. About three quarters of the restaurants are occupied with a few unoccupied tables. As we entered the restaurant, the lady at the bar looked at us and said “we are...close”. Obviously not a friendly restaurant and unapologetic to even explain why they decide to close early? Or maybe the lady had a tough day ? Or simple too lazy so she can leave early. No wonder lazy lobster as the name. Be warnMore

We visited on a busy night but service was still reasonable. Starting with some nice drinks - I highly recommend the local beers as they are excellent. I ordered the seafood chowder. Served in a cob loaf and costing $29 this was excellent value and...the best of had since I was last in the US. The cob was quite thin so the ratio of chowder to cob was perfect. I'd order this again in a heartbeat. Scotch fillet steak for my daughter. Cooked perfectly. I did advise the wait staff the she likes it medium rare but no more cooked than that and this is how it was served. Very nice char and went well with the mushroom sauce. My girlfriend had the baramundi and found it very enjoyable. Highly recommended.More

We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and on our arrival we where greeted as usual and seated and then had to wait and wait for someone to take our drinks order, ordered our entrees which were pleasant enough and then...came the mains being baby bara which my friends ordered and they said it was dry and tasteless! I ordered the the steak rib on the bone medium rear with mushroom sauce on the side and it came out blue. The waitress came over and totally agreed it was rear to say the least and took it back to kitchen! I then received what I thought would have been a replacement meal “NOT “ the steak came out and this time was well done and covered in mushroom sauce and guess what it was the same steak and when we were leaving we asked if we could have a final drink while waiting for the taxi and given we had just spent $600 on lunch and asked if we could sit down and wait for the taxi she responded and I quote “it is a restaurant and not a bar” we advised her that it was disappointing and her comments were unprofessional and the food to say the lease was average. The chef/owner then came out where we were waiting for the taxi and I noticed he was fairly aggressive and when I explained the situation he then apologised and offered us drinks the next time we returned which unfortunately will not be in the very near future.More
