Laishley Crab House
Had yet another Wonderful evening dining with friends. It was their first visit to Laishley's and like most they were impressed. The menu offers something for everyone and like all our past meals, we thoroughly our dinners. We were able to get a table right out by the water and the view was spectacular. I would strongly recommend Lashley Crab House to all who have not experienced it and if it has been a while, it's time for a return visit.
There was a brief wait for table although few patrons were there. The menu choices are terrific The portions are ample and food prep plating and presentation is excellent I flew from Nashville to specifically enjoy the meal with old high school friends and it was a very good experience . I eat here during every visit to punta gorda
Dinner with friends. Outside seating with view of marina. Service was excellent and our food was perfect except my friends steak was overcooked. They offered another streak but my friend refused...so they brought a surprise free dessert to make up for it. Really nice place, a tad pricey but worth it.
Great atmosphere & view on the water. Food was excellent! Only issue was that they didn't get us counted for making our reservation with Open Table, which I had to get corrected. Will definitely dine here again soon!!
Crab cakes were great and the Mahi Mahi was also. The rice was kind of bleh but our other sides were good. We ate out on the lanai and it was beautiful.
Seating and service were prompt & friendly. Food was excellent.
As always the Laushley Crab House was great! Service food and atmosphere all good!
Excellent as usual. My favorite restaurant. I go all the time.
Love it every time I get to take my visitors and show off Beautiful Punta Gorda and have some Great food!!!
Our second visit and we loved it! So did our friends!
Will not be back. Spent a lot of money for food that was simply not that good.
Great lunch with friends on a Sunday afternoon. Food and service were great and the view was amazing. We love to go to Laishleys. Just wish the gift shop was open on Sunday. Not important to the experience.
The food was great & the atmosphere was great. Great place!
Crab bisque was excellent. They were having trouble with the blended drink machine so drinks were not very good. Portions were large.
Crab was decent. Summer time never has adequate staff anywhere not just here.
Going back to taste more of the menu
Steak was burnt. Never again!
Good food, a little pricey. Service was good. View is terrific!
Great location, food was not good.
Beautiful outdoor dining area and bar. Our server was competent and pleasant. The lunch food was just so-so. Blue cheese and Russian dressing extremely overpowered the crab salad; sweet potato fries were not hot. Grouper sandwich was fishy and not very exciting. For a ‘crab house’, expected more than run-of-the-mill diner-type food. Would go back, again, however, to try something different or see if dinner selections are better. Overall pleasant experience.
Lovely evening. We meet friends there. When I made reservations, I told them we were celebrating our anniversary, but there was no mention of if. Besides that it was a good experience.
A great place to go!! Great view!! Fantastic king crab legs!!
Great food with family from out of town.
We had a wonderful night with family and friends. Food was delish, service awesome. Thank you!
LOVED IT. First time there.... will def go back
Good food, cold beer. There were 6 of us and we all had something different. All were good.
This is my happy place for sure. My husband and I go there at least twice a month. Food and service is always great. All I need now is a reward card 😋
We truly enjoyed our meal. Tiara was our waitress and she gave great service. Not pushy but always there when we needed her! Our food was delicious and the prices were reasonable. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
We were there for our anniversary. Service was awesome! We relaxed with a glass of wine, then enjoyed an excellent meal.
Our food was fantastic...our service was fantastic also..she was very helpful & knowledgeable..our table was outside so we were able to take pictures of last night of vacation ..beautiful...we will be back..thank you..Laura Barrett
We had s fantastic experience. From the hostess to the waitress and everyone that helped. I love this place! I wish I could remember our waitresses name. She was incredible. Very knowledgeable , friendly and super attentive.
I will recommend but they had to put more attention the way they cook the food
I had the fish with rice and espárragos, fish and rice were good, but the espárragos were over cook, burn !
Service was very good and friendly
We brought a party of 10 to Laisley's and enjoyed the celebration immensely. Our waitress was cordial, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was excellent, especially the scallops..YUM! The location and views were outstanding!
Having been to Laishleys before we were looking forward to a pleasant evening and we were not disappointed. Only minor complaint was that our waitress seemed too stressed to smile. We like interaction and that was the only thing that was missing.
Always love Laishley’s, the food is always great, it’s a good value, service is always great, and you can’t beat the view from the bar/outside deck. A must if you are in Punta Gorda !
Our first time at Laishley. Food was delicious & creative. I was surprised at the extensive gluten free menu. Delicious dishes. Service was excellent. Server was very knowledgeable about the menu. We will come again & recommend it to our friends
Table was greasy, menu had piece of wilted lettuce and other food particles on the inside. Waitress was pleasant . Salmon was over cooked, bland and sauce on top had congealed. Scallops were tasteless and risotto was undercooked , several pieces of crunchy rice. It wasn’t creamy either like risotto should be, but flavor was tasty. Mashed potatoes looked like a scoop of ice cream and tasted old and were cold . Atmosphere on the water was nice. Don’t think I would try it again. Very disappointed.
Dear LjDonovan, Thank you very much for your review. It is very disappointing to read about your experience with us. It is also unacceptable. If you could please email me at stacy@smugglers so we can discuss your experience further. Thanks again for your feedback. Sincerely, Stacy Gleason Laishley Crab House Punta Gorda, FL (941) 205-5566
Our server, Sam, made our first visit an extremely nice experience. She was attentive but not overly so.
The food was very good. We will return.
Love sitting on the outside deck. Staff friendly and efficient. Food served quickly and presented attractively. My only complaint is the flour tortilla containing my fish tacos was not grilled. Also need a lime crema on the tacos, they're a little dry without it.
The restaurant itself is really nice looking from the front to the back. We had a reservation for 9 and were seated right on time. Our service was fast and we never had to wait for a thing. Drinks were always filled and it was a busy Saturday night. Everything everyone ate was great. Would definitely recommend.
