Although we have been visiting the Lock n' Key for quite a few years, this has only ever previously been for drinks. However, after only planning to stay for drinks again, we were tempted by the look of other customer's food, so decided to dine. What a good decision it turned out to be, as the food was not only...

This restaurant has the absolute best salads. I had the grilled chicken and my friend had the Caesar with shrimp. We couldn't find anything wrong if we tried. In addition, They gave us a nice chunk of their pumpkin bread. That bread is the absolute best I have ever had! I bought a loaf to go!

Checking out the area for first time. Sunday happy hour all day with pull tickets....as mentioned in other reviews. Fun! Best backend grouper sandwich I've EVER had in Florida. I come down quite often. Been in The Keys, Tampa, St Petersburg, Sarasota, Treasure Island. First time fish was not dry and overcooked. Large portion as well. Our server was wonderful!... More

The Lock and key is like a step into the past. The interior has not been updated in years.the drinks were mostly ice, we mentioned to waitress, but no adjustment or apology from management, Food was quite good. the restaurant is large, the parking area small, but it is a beach restaurant and considering that it is good.

My husband and I were looking for a good steak. We took a ride down the key to Lock & Key in Englewood. We have never had a bad meal there. I had the NY strip steak and my husband had the prime rib. Both were excellent and cooked to perfection! The meal started off with steamers, to die for!... More

We come to Englewood once a year to visit family for Thanksgiving. As soon as we can break away from them my husband and I head to Lock 'n Key for drinks. While you can't see the ocean from the restaurant, it is directly across the street from the usually spotless Englewood Beach. Outdoor seating is nice, service always good... More

My husband and I were here for lunch and it was sooo good. I had the Salad with coconut shrimp and it was just fabulous. I have tried the South Beach Salad in the past and that is great too. The fresh pumpkin bread is an added bonus!

Food is okay. Ordered fish platter and never should have had it fried: they fried the grouper so much it was crunchy and super thin. Everything I had was over cooked.

One of our families favorite places to go for happy hour. Pull tickets for chance at 1/2 off or 50 cent drink! Always a fav when we have guests with us in snowbird season. Food a little pricier than others but consistent.

The food was better than average. The service was slow. The place was above average and you could feel comfortable visiting this establishment.
