Our waitress was the best we've had since we arrived in SWF. Generous portion of Grouper and prepared to perfection. We had a great night with friends and my Valentine of forty nine years.
Thank you for a nice evening

3 of the 4 dishes ordered were very good. My wife ordered shrimp scampi and it was completely tasteless. Worse she ever had. Not prepared with taste in mind. We complained and the waitress replaced it with a grouper dish that was excellent.
She is an excellent cook, and pointed out that she always prepares the shrimp with garlic in a pan before adding to the rest of the dish. The pasta was plain and tasteless.
You need a new recipe

We set outside and it was lovely. The restaurant was prepared for large groups, lots of tables of 8 to 10 people, and moveef folks quickly and promptly in-and-out. Food was very good.

Always take my company here for their fairwell dinner. They loved it. Our waiter did no favors for the review. He was slow. Spilled all of our soups. Brought one meal and two meals 4 minutes later. Started clearing things from the table before we were done and had to stop him. Came by once before we even started eating to ask how our meals were. Had to “flag him for beverage refills. Worst service in 6 years and the company also said so. It was as always a pleasure to be there except for him. More friends headed south and I will bring them there. Will request a different area for seating if he is our server again.

We had a great server — very attentive— but the kitchen was so backed up that it took over 50 minutes to get food. Seems as if the quality of Laishley’s food is not quite as good as it once was.

Food was good. Service was rather poor with not the friendliest wait staff. Also, with one of the beers we ordred the tap ran out so they served us a half glass. Then they served us another half glass of a replacement beer b/c they didn’t have any more kegs of the original beer we ordered. They served us two half glasses which doesn’t seem on par with tavern etiquette. Overall experience was poor.

Made our reservation through open table and when we arrived the hostess could not locate it. Told we could go on the wait list for up to 45 minutes. I made a little stink and was eventually seated. Waitress was rather slow with refills. Food is decent. Value was not bad for the price.

Laishley Crab House is a fun waterside restaurant. The food is very tasty with great combinations of flavors. We were a group of 4 and were seated outside overlooking the scenic waterway. Our server was very attentive and made excellent recommendations from the menu. Great place to go with a group of friends!

Service and food were mediocre as usual. The waitress forgot to submit one of our meals so the one meal came after everyone else finished. No compensation offered for the trouble. We only come here with visitors for the view.

Laishley Crab House is a great place to take out of town guests for lunch, particularly if you can get an outdoor table. The blackened grouper and mahi were tasty and fresh. Our waitress, Heather, was very attentive. The food is much better than the other Punta Gorda casual restaurants with a water view.

This restaurant has such potential to be excellent. Unfortunately each time we give them a chance, it falls short.
There are two kinds of crab cakes on the menu.....snow crab and Alaskan crab. I ordered the Alaskan expecting large pieces of crab. Perhaps they gave me the wrong order. My crab cakes were shreds of crab...not a chunk to be had. They also lacked flavor. The “sauce “ served with them wasn’t bad...but not much of it. I asked the waiter for more.
I also got green beans ...watery and no flavor....served with rice pilaf.....it too wasn’t very flavorful and none of my dish was warm.

My husband had the tuna special. He really liked his. Not crazy about the “risotto”...really just rice with peas.

The place is very noisy and has lots of bus boys, waiters, etc. hustling through it.
Very disappointing!
Sorry....I was so looking forward to a good dinner for our “date” night. 🥺

Parking was a problem. People were resorting to parking on the grass in places that weren't spaces. Noise level is high but good energy all about. Water views are great. Large accommodating booths for 6 people. Mac & Cheese with lobster and crab was recommended but unless you really like pasta, pass on it. Instead, go for the scallops...hummm. Server friendly. I mentioned in my Open Table reservation that it was for my mother's 98th birthday...don't bother indicating "notes" -- LC House staff made nothing of it.

I'd mentioned (at the time of the reservation) that this was a *BIRTHDAY DINNER,* and requested a small cake or cheesecake with a candle. No cake materialized after the meal, nor was it even mentioned, which was quite disappointing considering it was a *special occasion* for my guest.
The food and service were EXCELLENT, as usually the case at Laishley.
