Even on a Sunday in August the Lazy Lobster was busy. In season it is too crowded for me. They do a Lobster out of the shell that takes all the struggle out of this delicacy. It is hard to make a choice as there...More

Very nice restaurant with good seafood and service. Higher end place but had a casual feel. One of our favorite places to. Eat on Long Boat Key

Popular restaurant in a strip mall. Mainly an older crowd. Lobster tacos contained breaded and fried pieces of lobster which was unexpected and disappointing. Good drinks and service. Overall dinner was ok, but restaurant lacked something.

Top notch lobster dishes in quaint setting. Reservations required, but we were lucky to be worked in by the owner. Fresh lobster flown in from Maine. Great service and wine list.

Stayed at the nearby Zota Resort and ate here on our last night. Very good food and menu options. Looks to be frequented by locals. Great prices as well. Will definitely return when we are in the area.
