Dear Lazy Lobster Friends and Guests,


At The Lazy Lobster, serving you is the most important thing we do, and your health, safety and well-being remains our top priority.  In response to this unfolding COVID-19 crisis, we want to assure you that we are monitoring developments very closely and taking proper actions, as recommended by the CDC, to protect and support our customers, our employees and our community.  

The food service industry is already regulated by strict health and sanitation rules by the State of Florida. As such, our employees are trained and certified in best practices for reducing food-borne illness, including use of our 4 dedicated hand washing stations in our kitchen which allows our staff to repeatedly wash their hands during service. 

If any employee is not well, they are not permitted to work. Given the current situation and, in accordance with CDC guideline, we are asking guests who might be coughing, feverish, or otherwise not feeling well to please take care of yourself at home and reschedule your visit with us for a future date.


Additionally, we are implementing the following actions to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees:


  • We have removed several tables from our already spacious dining room to allow for even greater social distancing.

  • We have added a couple tables on our outdoor terrace, while increasing the space around each table.

  • We are sanitizing our menus, wine lists and check presenters after each guest use. 

  • We are tasking employees to meticulously clean and sanitize all surfaces that guests come in contact with, including the front desk, bathrooms, chairs, door knobs etc. 

  • We are providing a bathroom attendant who is solely dedicated to cleaning and sanitizing restroom surfaces during Dinner hours. 

  • We have placed hand sanitizing gel in several areas around the restaurant for guest use.

  • We have requested that employees do not shake hands, kiss, or hug guests

  • We understand and respect that many of our community have chosen to stay home during this crisis.  If you would prefer, we offer most of our menu items “to-go” and will happily accommodate your take out orders. 


As stated earlier, the health and safety of our guests, our community and our employees is our top priority.  We will continue to monitor releases from all federal, state and local authorities and will comply with their recommended best practices.


As always, the Lazy Lobster is grateful for your incredible support over the past ten years. Whether you choose in-house dining or our take out option, we remain steadfastly dedicated to providing you a dining experience that will always meet or exceed your expectations!


Kind Regards

Michael & Catherine Garey
