Paige was a great server. The views from the patio are great. Good for people watching. Fresh fish was done well. Their weekly special was the triggerfish. Notable for being a great recommendation from our server, delicious, and a change-up from every other beach front restaurant. Would highly recommend.

Amazing food and the server was super good. Seemed like she was only one running outside and she killed it. Desert was a must have.

This restaurant is awesome!!! Perfect beach town place for seafood and beef lovers. Many great island style drinks from their bar. Cudos go to the chef in the kitchen, we had 7 people with perfectly prepared food. Not too shabby i would say. Try it, you will go back again.

We will definitely come back when in this area.We have a hard time finding a place for my son with a dairy allergy/red meat . I called and they said they would help us on that for him. They checked all the ingredients for everything we asked. And he was so excited to get to eat what he wanted without hearing sorry you can't have that. He had popcorn shrimp, fries and even a roll. Our waitress Kristen went above and beyond. On top of all of that.....They were incredibly nice, delicious food and very fast service.We set outside and they had cooling misting fans. It's wasn't that much to mess up your hair but to keep you cool. We loved it here.

Our family (about 43) reunion was this past Memorial Day weekend at Gasparilla Inn at Boca Grande and we wanted to get off the island for some new food options and because we were having trouble getting a large party reservation everywhere else on the island. Lock and Key was willing to accommodate our party of (20) which dwindled down to (13) and finally (9). First of all the hostess (Madison) and who I think was the manager were very patient with us and had our group sat within 45 minutes. Our server was awesome! (Sorry he name slips my mind). She was friendly, funny and absolutely on point with steps of service and efficiency. We were delighted with the food and especially happy to have FRESH seafood available (unlike the "fancy" outlets on the island). The food runners and support staff were excellent as well! Our server even brought my cousin a sundae with a candle so we could celebrate her birthday. I highly recommend this place and I'm happy to see a restaurant on the coastline that uses fresh fish. Mahi special, Trigger fish, Prime Rib, Mussels (must have) and Pineapple Cake dessert special.

Holy moly talk about a happy hour!!!! 11am to 6pm! They have these pull tabs that reveal your price of your drink, and I'm expecting it to be on certain things, like well drinks and domestics, I WAS WRONG! It's on everything. It was so much fun and the drinks were great! Staff was super friendly & food was great as always.

This place is amazing! They had great cocktails & I had mahi tacos that were so, so awesome! Our waitress was so nice & accommodating. We sat on the patio on a very warm May afternoon and it was nice + cool under the huge umbrellas they have set-up! Definitely will return if I'm back in Manasota Key, highly recommend!

Quality food at good prices. Fried oysters were especially great--both times this week. Big.Moist. Breaded just right. Servers are attentive. By far the best on the island

Stopped in for lunch after a afternoon at the beach and we were SO impressed! Our server was awesome, I don’t believe we got her name but she made our experience 10x better by making us feel welcome and taken care of. I got the impossible tacos, which as a vegetarian it was so awesome to see so many options for me! food and service 10/10, and the atmosphere and view you can’t beat!

One of our favorite places to eat along the beach. They're coconut shrimp it's one of the best we have ever eaten. They have a fun happy hour until 6:00 p.m. each day.
01:42 20 May 21
Oh do I love their happy hour. Drinks and food are also both fantastic.
12:32 19 May 21
We are so glad we stopped here for lunch. Lock 'N Key has a very extensive menu and the service was friendly. My wife ordered the grouper fingers which were excellent. I went with the Triggerfish and let me say that on this trip we tried cobia, trippletail, grouper, sheaphead, snapper, and hogfish. All were exceptionally fresh and delicious but if I had to pick one, I would absolutely go back to Lock 'N Key and order the Triggerfish. It melted in your mouth. Kudos to the chef 👏. Can't wait to go back to this restaurant again.
