Made reservations for 5, for a Wednesday evening. Everyone was very friendly and we had great service. A nice menu selection, seafood and non seafood, and nice specials, too. We all very much enjoyed our meals. We all agreed we must go back.

The shrimp scampi was delicious. The escargot appetizer was also very good. Can't go wrong with a good escargot 🐌 The service was fast and friendly.

A friend suggested and 10 of us went for dinner to the Lazy Lobster. Any restaurant with the word lobster is good enough for my wife to visit. So we started with the excellent lobster bisque. And then we went our separate ways, since I...More

I say excellent seafood with quotation marks. Yes it is good, but when you're in Florida wouldn't you like to see a lot of local seafood included? Sure they have the usual Grouper and shrimp. But why would I travel 1000 miles south to eat...More
