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

No words can describe how amazing this place is. You must go and MUST get the lobster mac & cheese! Everything on the menu is delicious and won't disappoint.

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!

Our first visit but not the last because we were most impressed with the food, the ambiance and the service. Our waiter, Matt, was not only pleasant and attentive but also speedy. My wife had a Caesar Salad followed by the yummy shrimp Norma whilst I chose the tasty lobster bisque and the delicious crab cakes. The food was hot... More

We have eaten here twice for lunch and both times it was fantastic. We recently dined here for the early bird special and it was fabulous. They have a variety of early bird options available until 5:30 pm. Great experience. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

We have been to the Lazy Lobster six or eight times in the last year. The first dinner I had here were their crab cakes and, I have ordered them every time since. There are two or three other items on their menu that I really keep wanting to order but then I get the crab cakes instead. We will... More

My family really loves their grouper sandwiches. Their lobster escargot is also very very good. Usually can get in pretty easy with reservations or lunch.

We had a massage upstairs and thought we'd stop for lunch. We were seated promptly and our order taken. The lobster bisque was a bit cool and just not quite to my taste. Bisque is tricky to me. Had I seen the Clam Chowder, I would have ordered instead. Was told that was really good. The Grouper sandwich was spot... More
