We have been before. We had a couple from out of state visiting so we decided to go to the Crab House for dinner. They liked it very much and would like to go again on their next visit. My wife and I live here year round and enjoy going to the Crab House. Thanks Jim

Night Out With Friends
Our meal was delicious and the server, Dominic, was very kind and accommodating. The only factor that evening making our experience uncomfortable was noticing other servers making it very clear what time people HAD to stop ordering food and when the restaurant WOULD be closing. We understand all establishments have a closing time and are respectful of that but the servers adamant reminders not only made us but the other diners rather uncomfortable as well. Although we do understand the wait staff wants to go home, paying customers should never feel no longer wanted and rushed to leave.

Great time at Laishleys again.
Great time at Laishleys again. Family really enjoyed themselves. Danny was a great and we enjoyed his friendly smile and wonderful care.

Definitely reserve an outside
Definitely reserve an outside table overlooking the marina. They won't guarantee a table but worth requesting. Food is average, felt the grouper was frozen? Bit soggy. Stuffed shrimp very nice and the calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked. The outside bar is noisy but fun.

Great relaxing dinner spot
This was a great place for a nice glass of wine, awesome seafood and beautiful scenery! We went on our last night in town and it was the perfect wind-down. The crab cakes and stuffed shrimp were amazing!
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant has a great selection of crab buckets, lobster and seafood platters, and the crab cakes are really tasty full of crab meat. The service is very attentive, nothing is too much trouble, even if you decide to change your sides with the entrees!! We can highly recommend their Red Velvet Cake to finish, it is delicious!

Great place for lunch. Nice
Great place for lunch. Nice view of marina and Charlotte harbor. The food was fresh and hot. Very friendly waiter. Had one of the best grouper Reuben I have ever had!

Perfect Even with Clouds
Sharing wonderful sashimi and sushi here, even on a cloudy day, is a real treat.

Had a wonderful time with family. Food was great from kids to adults, everyone was able to find something on the menu they liked. Server was very nice and personable, would definitely go back!

What a good Fathers Day we had. Catfish, Grouper, shrimp and scallops...we had it all. Good food and good time
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the restaurant, food and service. You have my vote.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food great service
We were excited to try this restaurant and were very pleased! The food was good and sitting outside was fun!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful and great tasting
Lovely presentation of sashimi and delicious handroll, scenic view, all on a Sunday afternoon. Coudn't be better.

This is one on my husbands and my special occasion spots. The food is always delicious. My husband is not a seafood eater. we love Laishley Crab House because they have a lot of non-seafood choices. I love to try their specials because they are very different. I love the fact that they don't concentrate on the entre. They work magic with vegetables too. I often go home and try to duplicate their veggies. Deserts choices are great. The fried ice cream was fantastic. I hope they bring back the key lime calypso.

Glad it's gotten so much better
We've eaten at Laishley twice in the past four weeks. We've been very pleased both times. The quality of food and service has vastly improved since 2011-12. The outdoor bar and seating offers a great open view of Charlotte Harbor (but I wish we didn't get others' second-hand smoke). The indoor seating offers a quieter setting away from the birds. There's also a very nice indoor bar, along with the dining room and banquet room. We still had a nice view of the harbor.
We will return, and we are happy to recommend this place to friends. Laishley offers a varied menu with something for everyone. Try the Grouper Anise!

Luck of the draw
Looking for a last minute date spot, never been to Punta Gorda before, picked this from a long list and I was pleasantly surprised. The help was friendly and courteous and the food was good. Very nice view of the river
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect fresh fish, with a view
Thanks again for the wonderful presentation of very dependable fresh sushi and sashimi, with friendly service and great view.
7/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
I can always count on excellent food at Laishleys. The menu selections are great and the food is always prepared with a little twist above the norm.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress was excellent, the food was good. We had our two grandsons with us and they were full.
Which is no small feat. The deserts were awesome. We will be back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scrumptious and Beautiful Dining
We are here with friends for our anniversary. Seated for outdoor dining overlooking Charlotte Harbor, we had front row seats to a beautiful sunset. However, the food was what will have us going back. Superb. Each of us four had different entrees and all were wonderful!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Breeze; Great Fish
Two reaons to go here....great location with a million dollar view coupled with with wonderful fresh sashimi and sushi. Attentive service too.

Perfect ambience, Love the view. Food selection is very nice, enjoyed the Red, apple sangria very Yummy! Will be back

Laishly's is in a great location in a park overlooking the Peace River. However, if you are facing the sun at sunset, it can be blinding. Food is good & reasonably priced - enjoyed sushi and a blackened grouper wrap. One of Punta Gorda's favorites!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant overlooks the Charlotte Harbor with the most beautiful views. Only had 2 complaints-the sushi was bland but fresh and the steak was butterflied. Usually, restaurants will ask if you want your steak butterflied but they did not. My husband didn't want to send it back because he didn't want to wait for another.
Our server was great and we had a nice view even though we were inside.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a fun experience. Sat outside and had a beautiful view of river and then sunset. Leisurely ate without being rushed. Very good food. Will be back.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I thought it was pricey. Maybe that's why it was so empty? Wonder how they make it without snowbirds.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would be surprised if we didn't like any of the wonderful sashimi and sushi prepared by each of the chefs in this reliable restaurant.
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Entertained a couple from Austin, Texas, and they loved the atmosphere and found the food excellent. Good service, terrific ambiance.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent and
The food was excellent and enjoyed by all four of us. Two of us ordered vodka tonic which was disappointing. The tonic water tasted like seltzer. We sent it back but the second drink was no better.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful view. The server thoughtfully seated us at a table in the shade. Good service and good food.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very pleasantly surprised with decor, ambiance, terrific view of the Peace River and the bridge over Charlotte Harbor. Awesome sunset view and of Laishley Park. Food was reasonably priced and delicious! Our group of 4 are looking forward to our next visit.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food; great service
This place remains our favorite restaurant for excellent , fresh fish and friendly, hometown service. The problem is trying not to eat too much of the freshest sashimi anywhere.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
The waitress seemed to disappear
The waitress seemed to disappear for long periods of time. But she was very friendly and gave good service - she may have been stretched too thin????
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view with good selections.
A little pricey. We were seated quickly and did not have to wait for the rest of our party to arrive. Drinks came quickly. Food was hot. Attentive staff. Great area to walk around after dinner. Lots of parking. Ice cream shop in back.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I along with another couple went to celebrate her birthday. We each a different menu item. All enjoyed every bite. Steaks were done perfectly. Great chocolate cheesecake for dessert. We had an outstanding waitress, I wish I could remember her name.

First Time Guest
We are seafood lovers. We have been in the area for 3 years. We were so glad to find this place. We now have somewhere to take family and friends when they come to visit us.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Laishley.s continues to impress
We dine at Laishley's every month or so during Florida "season". We have never had a bad experience. The food and the wait staff are above average and we will continue to recommend this restaurant to our friends, especially if they are looking for waterfront dining.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful Sunday Afternoon!
WE met a friend for dinner and really enjoyed the food and the beautiful views. I would definitely receommend it.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had loster, lobster, lobster, king crab and grouper .... best meal we have had in the area. Service was outstanding, beautiful sunset view over the harbor.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu has changed. It includes heart healthy, lower calorie options. The old favorites are still there. There Grouper meals are fabulous!
It may be a tourist attraction, but we locals love it too
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
nite out with friends
Server was great. Help make for a exceptional dining experience. The food as always was fantastic. We come here all throughout
the year for both lunch and dinner.
Make it a point to bring our out of town friends and family here as well.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
been looking for a great seafood restaurant since we arrived 6 weeks to No Ft Myers. And New England lobster rolls and clam chowdah! Grouper fish n chips tempura style awesome dish. Will go back for dinner soon to taste more items. ANd you can get a sangria wine cooler at a Crab Shack? No kidding.... And Sushi BuzzRouillard
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I invited two other special couples with us to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversay with us. We arrived ordered a drink at the bar and waited for the other couples to arrive (they even had Black Velvet Whiskey for my Manhattan). Our table was ready and we were seated. Everyone ordered seafood and pleased with their meals except my husband. He isn't a big seafood eater and the meat choices were limited so he ordered the Mac and Lobster dish. There really wasn't much to his meal and a tad dry. We will go back and enjoy the outside dinning again, but just won't order the mac and lobster dish. The waitress was very efficient and upbeat with a great sense of humor. We have enjoyed lunch there many times.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love Laishly but not the new menu
I was very dissappointed with the new menu. It was too busy and difficult to read. I was not happy with the "specials" menu as it was all diet food instead of the amazing gourmet foods that I am used to seeing at Laishley Crab House. I bring people from out of town to this restaurant to let them have a taste of the area and this time it was not up to par.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Punta Gorda Laishley's
Great venue at sunset on the balcony overlooking the harbor. Seafood is great and service good. Reservations are recommended, although there is ample seating both indoors and out. Would highly recommend to friends and family...
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place for crab, fish & seafood
I highly recommend this restaurant because of the food, service and atmosphere. The prices are like Bonefish Grill but food is better. If you like Coconut Shrimp order the appetizer. The sauce is the best!
We ordered the King Crab Crabcakes and the Crab Parmesan Grouper. All delicious!
Make sure you ask for a table outside when the weather is nice. You'll love the view of the Charlotte Harbor.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
On line reservation worked
On line reservation worked well. The whole experience was excellent.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went for my Father in Laws birthday. The tables are large so you will have plenty of room. Service was good but did not clear the dishes. The food was great and the price was reasonable. We will definitely go back as it is nice to walk the boardwalk/dock when you are done with dinner. Next time would like to sit outside.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good meal
Dinner at The Crab House was very good. The food was cooked well and delicious Service was very attentive and very accommodating. The only negative was the location is a little tricky but not bad. We would definitely go back. We want to try the sushi bar. It looked great.
