Diner Reviews
  • "Have had thoroughly enjoyable meals, both for special occasion and with visitors. Delicious food. Great place to dine and enjoy the scenery."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Expected a great dining experience and was very disappointed. The service was terrible. Order was inaccurate, the server never checked up on us after busboy brought our food. What really grossed us out was watching an employee clean up spilled iced tea on the deck then use the SAME cloth to wipe tables. The only saving grace was the waterside table and harbor view."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Soup excellent. Crab cakes very good. Wolf fish special very good. Mixed seafood pasta was disappointing. Lobster pieces were mushy, sauce bland. Chocolate cheesecake dessert excellent. Our server was better than excellent."

  • "Our second time there was just as good as our first. Great food ,friendly service. The patio was a little noisy,but was worth it to watch the sunset from our table. 4 ate for a little more than 100."

  • "We wanted to have a very special experience for a 44th wedding anniversary and some place with a romantic ambience and we found it at your restaraunt. The food was excellent and the service was great. We would visit this place many more times. We just loved the view to bad the weather didn't co-operate and there was a terrible lightning storm going on, as we would have preffered to sit outside but the wife said NO."

  • "Got together with a couple of new friends, so wanted it to be a nice evening. The service was very friendly. We dined outdoors where the view was beautiful. Talked long after our plates were cleared and did not feel rushed. Enjoyed it so much that I plan on bring my next house guests here."

  • " Don't know why disappointed is review nickname . We were not. We had a relaxing meal with terrific service. Food was not outstanding but no major complaints. We were not rushed. Did not like their specialty margaritas. Would suggest sticking with the standard."

  • "Nice early Father's Day dinner. Had only the dinner menu for lunch that day (but, would accommodate simple off menu requests). Sushi is good and fresh. Salmon was nicely done and not overcooked."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We used the online reservation system and received a call on the morning of to confirm. Our hostess was very accommodating. Half our party was stuck on the highway in a horrible rain storm and was late. We had 3 little one's with us and we all enjoyed ourselves. Although the food was very good, the market prices were very pricey and a surprise on the bill."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Portions small, over priced, sea food platter greasy and soggy. Sea food pasta ok (spaghetti with some shrimp and scallops)."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My party was initially reserved for 6 but ended up being 8. Server Michelle? was fabulous and very accomodating. Didnt appear irritated when we had to add tables together. Very appreciative!"

  • "My meal was very good. My wife didn't think there was anything special about here entrée. It was way too warm in the restaurant and we both were sweating. Spend some cash on lowering the AC."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We had a very good experience at Laishley' s, our first time there. The service was fine, the view very good. My grouper with crab meat, served over a potato pancake, was very good. My wife's steak salad, while enormous, was just OK; some of the "tenderloin tips" were quite tough. But, all in all, in was a very pleasurable meal, and we're likely to return the next time we're in town."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The service was very good although the poor waitress was spread extremely thin. This might just be because it's off season. The food was fresh and creative. The also have sushi. As well as some non seafood items."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We met some coworkers from Atlanta for some tasty seafood and everyone had a great time and loved the food. This place is nothing but consistently good!"

  • "Unfortunately we where the last group at 10 pm and the manager asked us politely to finish up and leave... We where a party of 10 and left a substantial check behind. It was difficult to explain that a restaurant of this format closes sooo early! Next time I need to find an other place for my customers and friends, where we can enjoy late night dining!! Regards Richard "

  • "There weren't many places to choose from in this part of FL. I am guessing this is the best place around. Service was good. The food was fine, but nothing special or spectacular. Just average decent food. Beach bread was highlight. Scallops were average. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I took family from out of town to eat at the Crab House. 10 minute wait before server arrives.. When ordering, we specifically asked if the swordfish was fresh because my dad eats it rare. She assured us it was. 15 minutes after ordering, server returns: they can not cook swordfish rare. My dad orders blue crabs;they are out of blue crabs. We request reconsidering rare swordfish. Manager arrives and says that because swordfish is frozen, not fresh, they can not serve rare. So she either misrepresented or guessed whether the fish was fresh. Finally food comes and they FORGOT my aunt's meal. We waited an additional 15 minutes for hers to arrive after ours."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We have been twice to this restaurant now and the food is simply delicious. Great selection of seafood on the menu, but also some non-seafood options. We can recommend the coconut shrimp with piña colada rum dip and 'Lobster, Lobster and Lobster'! The atmosphere is fantastic and the view from the outside dining area is a great place to watch the sunset and sea life in the marina! We're definitely going back for more! "

  • "This has become one of our favorite local restaurants. We like to bring our out-of-town visitors here. The food and service is great and the view overlooking the Peace River is very scenic."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Great food, great prices and super service. Lobster outstanding"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "It was a terrible experience, and we took out of town friends with us. I was horrified. The fish was so bad, it could not be eaten. The hostess who seated us was obviously a very unhappy young lady, literally throwing the menus on our table. When we complained about the grouped, the manager lectured us about the laws of serving fish in Florida. We have eaten there many times, and we have enjoyed taking friends there to help introduce them to our wonderful community. We will never go there again."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This is the second time I have been there with out-of-town guests visiting. The hostess was not the friendliest as we were not even greeted with a smile. When ordering, I ordered a cup of soup and an entrée. I got my entrée and asked why I had not received my soup. The person delivering the entrée must have told the waitress. 5 minutes later my soup was served. I told the waitress I did not want it since it should have been served prior to the entrée. I was not charged for the soup however did not feel this was handled very well. There was no apology for the mix up."

  • "The food was again tops. You never have a bad meal. "

  • "We took out of town friends to Laishley's for a celebration and they were as thrilled with the experience as we always are!! We will be back many more times and I will be bringing my "ladies lunch group" here also!! Our server, Michelle, was super!!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "While there are a few restaurants in the Punta Gorda that offer a great sunset, I feel that the combination of great leading edge cuisine and seafood along with a great view of the peace river and marina make this a special dining destination. One note though, make sure your wallet is well stocked; a dozen oysters, 2 entrees and 4 martinis along with the tip was just over $100.00"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Laishley is my new favorite dining spot. We have taken many visitors to Laishley's for both lunch or dinner now when they come that is were they want to go."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "World class sashimi here in little Punta Gorda. Beautiful, creative presentation of extremely fresh, quality fish. They throw in the great view for nothing!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The only good things about dinner were the wine and the calamari. We ha the seafood platter and the shrimp were tiny, the three small scallops were just OK, and the grouper was over cooked and dry."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "When I made the reservation I asked for an inside booth with a view. When we were seated we did get a booth with a partial view. We were seated near a door that had a screen that was done. I asked our waiter if he could raise the screen but he said it was a permanent fixture and could not be raised. This was our only disappointment with our dining experience. "
