Very noisy, no employees were wearing masks. Had baked potatoes, but both were cooked too long, and burned. Should have complained then, but we’re hungry. Other than that that the food was good along with the service. Very noisy, almost have to shout across the table.

Black grouper special was excellent. Our waiter James was so polite, attentive and a great personality. He truly added to the evening. He is an outstanding young man.

Outstanding service, food and atmosphere!

Our waiter Chris was was not only knowledgeable about the various seafood on the menu, but as busy as they were on a Saturday night at 5:00; never made us feel rushed. From the chilled water to final tab there was no waiting like so many other restaurants.

Looking forward to going back!

Great place. Unfortunately our waiter was half baked. Forget a lot of stuff including his name. But we were just happy to have someone show up for work but definitely not our best attention as in the past

When I made the reservation I booked an outdoor table, but when we arrived I was told that outdoors is first-come, first-served, so I would correct this in your reservation system. Fortunately there was an outdoor table available so we were happy. The outdoor space, on the water, was great.
I felt that the price of my meal was high relative to the portion size, which was fairly meager. It was very tasty, though.
We understand the pressure wait staff are under due to the number of unfilled positions in restaurants, however I do resent it when made to feel like a nuisance rather than a guest. I will chalk it up the waitress having a bad day.
We each ordered coffee after our meal and it was cold.
We were there for a reunion of three friends who hadn’t seen each other in 5 years so no real or perceived shortcomings stood in the way of our good time, I’m happy to say.

After taking advantage of valet parking we entered Deep Lagoon and were greeted promptly. We had an amazing waiter who explained the menu in detail answering all of our questions. The appetizers and main course were both served hot with a nice presentation. The food was outstanding and everyone in our party agreed that it was a special restaurant worthy of a recommendation.

Drove 40" from Bonita Springs to try a new place to eat. We were delighted to be seated right away and a server attended our table right away. She was very helpful explaining menu and assisting us with choices. Our drinks came quickly. The waterside was lovely and everything was so clean! We had great time with friends.

Service was exemplary ! Food was outstanding and delivered promptly. Our server, James was most pleasant and we'll be sure to ask for him when we go back. We had the fresh grouper and the hogfish. Both were outstanding. Place was very busy and we dined early to be sure to make the theater curtain at 6:30. No problem ! Can't wait to return. Our complements to management and staff for running a superior operation during difficult times !

Deep Lagoon is one of our great, standard "go to" locations, this time a lunch before going to the theater. "Brooke" has been our server several times and she is great! The food, particularly if you like stone crab claws, can be pricey and the noise level is high. However, the Brooke's service is crisp and timely, the food is flavorful and the fish always seems to be fresh and tasty, the fresh oysters and shrimp terrific, and the parking and location great for us.

What a great place. A few people on the beach told us about it and we decided to try it out. The ambiance was great and the food was outstanding! We sat at the bar and our bartender/server was amazing. He recommended the chef's special which was lime panko grouper. Amazing! My husband had the oysters which they are known for. Overall, a great experience. Great food!

Food at Deep Lagoon is top notch - some of the better seafood you can get in the area. They are obviously short-staffed - wait staff is friendly but has way too many tables and it took a long time to get food and drinks.

Our waiter was inattentive at best. Ordered grouper special and it had no crab meat as listed. Margarita special was overwhelmingly strong and salty. Nice ambience for New Year’s Eve but that’s all it had to offer.
