The Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key





Known for its warm friendly service, great lobster and unbeatable prices, there's nothing lazy about The Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key. Nestled amid a canopy of towering palm trees, the outdoor garden terrace is a lovely place to enjoy lunch or dinner on a warm Florida afternoon. With an extensive menu and impressive wine list, there's something on Chef Tom Murawski's menu for everyone, including retro favourites such as Lobster Thermador, made with mushrooms and sherry in a cream sauce, Lobster Newberg in a rich lobster brandy sauce and crowned with hot, golden puff pastry, Lobster Mac & Cheese with fresh steamed lobster meat, macaroni, and white cheese sauce topped with toasted crumbs and truffle oil, Beer Battered Fish & Chips with tartare sauce and golden frites, or the creamy classic and sinfully rich Lobster BisqueThe Lazy Lobster has been a popular favourite among Sarasotans since 2009, when co-owners Michael Garey, former manager of Café L’Europe, and Bob Fracalossy, former chef at Café L’Europe and Café on the Bay, took over the space and launched the restaurant, to the great delight of lobster lovers far and wide.
