    Our go to place for a relaxing atmosphere and good meal. Service was excellent and our waiter Nicholas was also very pleasant, informative and attentive to our dining experience. Highly recommend the fish and chips (thought I recommend subbing the jalapeño mac & cheese as I do) which is always delicious as is the ribs, meat balls and several other dishes. Thanks again Nicholas for your excellent service

    Balsamic porcini steak was drowning in the sauce. Couldn’t even taste the meat. Pork chop Marsala was a chop cooked on a flat top so edges were hard. Had a few mushrooms on top with an unmelted slice of cheese and a bland Marsala sauce.

    We've eaten at the Libby's on Osprey several times and live it there. However did not like the atmosphere at the one in Lakewood Ranch. Seemed more like a diner than an upscale restaurant. Food and service were good though.

    First time there for brunch and enjoyed it very much! The Croque Madame was very flavorful from the bread to the ham and the guryere cheese and my husband enjoyed the crab and shrimp eggs Benedict. Both were very filling. Libby's will definitely be on our brunch list!

    We were very disappointed in our experience at this restaurant which was our first for dinner although we had been there for lunch. The waiter was very inexperienced, the food was fair but grossly overpriced ($49 with tip for two salads) but the worst part was the table for two where my dinner companion was nearly elbow-to-elbow with the man at the next table. Overall, not a good experience for Saturday night date night and we won’t return.

    Have been going to this location for the past 6 months, the first few visits were excellent. Unfortunately over the last few months it has deteriorated. This visit was not to bad, the previous 3/4 were not good at all. Would still recommend it as the food is good but the service needs some management attention.
