Great service and good food.
very enjoyable lunch on the outside balconey with excellent view of harbor and waterway, attentive service, great food
A group of old friends getting together for our annual lunch. The outside porch is a delightful place to enjoy the weather and view.
The grouper sandwich was outstanding (4 of us had that) while the salads were more lettuce than seafood. The Philly cheesesteak was about what you’d expect.
The service was timely and friendly and we didn’t get rushed to leave as they got very busy. We tipped extra to compensate for the time so it worked out for the server.
Good casual place and we’ll return.
We loved it! We have been to Laishley ‘s several times and have never left disappointed.
Our Server Courtney was Awesome. Very personable, straight to the point. Very good recommendations, very prompt. Ask for Courtney she is a Gem!!
While a beautiful place, great service, and reasonable prices considering the location, the portions are getting smaller, which is going to be a serious consideration for future visits.
Glad that we had reservation because there was a small craft festival at waterfront.
They were able to honor our request for upstairs, outside dining. Very pleasant and efficient waitress. Food ok. Everyone seemed pleased with their selection.
Really like how separate checks are always offered in FL restaurants
11:30 AM Family Sunday Birthday meal on the deck next to the railing. Very friendly service. Made the reservations earlier in the week and the reservation deck was prepared for us. Our server was Rachel M and very attentive, always on the spot before being needed.
it is not a surprise but the lack of parking especially when the city has an activity adjacent to the restaurant is a real problem.
Great food. Spotty service. Noisy kids
Our reservation was easy, you need to book at least 5 days ahead in season, though. The sashimi was excellent, but I needed to ask for more pickled ginger and my friend more seafood sauce, the kitchen staff seems to struggle with the orders. The same for our entrée we ordered baked potato, and had to ask for it. Our wait staff was very good and the food was a treat. We chatted to our neighbouring table and it was fun.
Couldn't get the exact time we wanted through the Open Table app, but an easy call was able to get us closer to it. Food was fine, and the view great.
Very large selection on their menu and haven't found one I didn't like. Can't ask for a better view too. If you're looking for great seafood and a view, this is the place.
Great location and view. Food and waitress were really good. Too bad we had to wait almost 45 minutes to get our meals. I guess the view offset the slow service from the kitchen. To ease the wait the waitress even brought us samples chowder. She was great.
First time there. It was recommended by friends. Would visit again.
Good service. Friendly people. Good food.
Third trip there. Great food and service. Fantastic view
You can't beat this place for The View, the seafood, and the sushi. The big advantage to us was that you can bring a small pet in a carrier to the outdoor seating which is covered in the cold weather.
Took some f@mily there that were vacation8ng with us. It is one of our favorite places to dine as it is theirs also when they are in town. Always a good meal and a good time. Thank you
The Crab house is the perfect place to meet friends for a lunch get together. tHe decor of the restaurant especially the bar is fantastic! Open table has been fantastic for making my reservations so simple.
Can't beat the view! Great waterfront seafood dining (but they have other items on the menu for non-seafood customers). Usually take out-of-town house guests here. This day shared the
Avacado Crab Salad, which I usually have, and the Flat Bread Pizza with shrimp, tomatoes, greens & horseradish-havarti cheese - YUM!
Food always good. Waitress having a bad day very brusk and poor attitude. Too lazy to provide separate checks and poor representation for a fine establishment. Would go again but not have the same wait staff.
We requested outdoor seating and we received it. The food was very good. Our group of 4 choose 4 different entrees and each one was excellent. The waitress was efficient and friendly. The view was fantastic. All in all a good experience.
High prices, small portions, low quality. Very unimpressed, won't recommend or return.
This is an annual meeting place where friends gather mid way between where we each stay - Englewood and Estero. Always a pleasant experience with good food and service!
Always fun, especially on a warm & sunny day at their outside seating. Reservations a good idea, especially for large groups.
One entre was to be lightly blackened catfish. It arrived with no such seasoning, so Our waitress Courtney said taste it, let me know if it is blackened enough. She took it back and returned with great lightly blackened catfish. Good service
As usual excellent food, great atmosphere and good service.
Enjoyed our night at Laishleys! Meals and servers were excellent!
One of our favorite go to eaterys.
We always enjoy whatever we order at the Laishley Crab House. The food is always delicious and the staff are attentive and very personable. And what a view! We recommend that you make reservations if you would like to sit outside to enjoy the waterfront view.
Busy Restaurant on the water here in Punta Gorda. You are pleasantly surprised by the meal. Seems like a very tourist orientated place and it may be, but surprising good. Been there several times now and never disappointed about food . Great views of the water and you can make a reservation, I did it on open table !!
I had the shrimp po boy and the shrimp should have been cooked a little longer the breading came off on the bun. My husband had the crab cake and he said it was just blah. Have had dinner there before and it was better than our lunch.
The food and the service were both very good. The view of the boats was icing on the cake.
Good food and good service. The menu has a large variety of seafood options - mostly typical Florida food but good. You can choose some healthy options amidst the fried offerings so everyone should be happy. It is also typically Florida so no fancy attire expected.
Very dark where we were seated. Too chilly to sit outside so stayed in. Good service. Excellent drinks. Over cooked entree. Sides not hot. Over rated.
We are seasonal residents of Punta Gorda and have been here before. This year both service and food have improved dramatically. Our server, John, was superb . The crab salad sandwich, served on a croissant, was excellent, and hubby enjoyed his shrimp wrap also.
The restaurant overlooks the harbor and affords marvelous views! The front desk is efficient and with a reservation, seating is quick and correct.
Initial portion was overcooked fish, second plate was not much better. Guest was not impressed either.
Other than the trouble of finding a parking space, our experience was very pleasant. Our waitress, Chloe, was personable, knowledgable, and very efficient. Our group came from three different directions but found the restaurant easily.
I have been to Laishleys many times. The last 2 times the food hasn't been as good as before. I ordered the Portabello sandwich and it had very little flavor and was soggy and dripping. My friend had the crab Louie salad and also said it wasn't very good. Wondering if they have a new cook or something? I think I'm going to wait to return for a while and hope they resolve whatever the problem is.
Only negative was the hostess Sienna (not sure of spelling). Appeared irritated and threw down the menus at the hostess stand practically in our face. Not a good start to our dining experience.
Our server was great, sorry I don’t remember her name but she just came from Tennessee
