Friends recommended the Lock 'N Key so took a ride out to Englewood a few Sunday's ago. We loved the Happy Hour concept! You are given a pull tab and whatever tab you pull, that's what you pay! 50 cents, half price or full price!...More

Out of all the restaurants in the immediate area, this restaurant is one of the better ones. Prices aren't cheap but aren't ridiculous for the food. From what I have eaten here the food is average. I had the Mahi fish tacos and they were...More

Not sure where the lobster comes from for their lobster rolls, but you know Florida has lobsters too!

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.
