Our waitress, Veronica I believe, was excellent. We were seated on time, outside as requested which was appreciated. My disappointment was the meal itself. I ordered a half rack of ribs. Unfortunately, they were very dry and overdone. I should have brought it to the attention of the wait staff once I tasted the ribs but did not. I am puzzled on why they were served, the kitchen should have known their condition and offered me another option. It was not falloff the bone, as advertised. I do plan on giving the restaurant another try and am hoping for a better experience.

Love the food at Libby’s. It is fantastic. This was our 3rd visit, 2 for dinner and 1 for lunch. Both dinner visits have been disappointing. Again, the food was great but the service is slow and unreliable and the ambiance chaotic and loud. There is always a cluster at the entrance. We had reservations but even so, there is no waiting area and people are stacked on top of each other right inside the entrance and in the dining room. I hope they figure out a way to reign in the chaos. My husband is done but I may still visit for lunch occasionally.

Went on a Sunday for brunch. Bottomless mimosas were strong, very good. Food however was not good whatsoever. Extremely small portions, overpriced, and not very fresh at all. $10 bottomless is worth it to go to, but maybe order something off the regular menu.

Libby’s is always a close by go-to.
But have learned to stay with actual menu items. Just ordered the fish of the day and I must say it was very disappointing and even more so when I got the bill.

Fish special provided a piece of fish roughly 3/8” think and maybe 4”x4” square. Side of Cole slaw was maybe two tablespoon. And level spoonfuls at that. Potato’s were the best part of the meal.

Fortunately we ordered an appetizer or I’d have left hungry. Other menu items provide a nice meal for the price but this meal... $32. What a disappointment.

Please note, food here is usually very good. Just not this one.

Restaurant wasn’t busy but hostess tried to seat us next to another couple in the same booth. My salmon was ok and was hot but my husband’s Mediterranean chicken was cold so maybe a timing issue. House wine at $10 seems high for that setting but we were told it was because they don’t have happy hour on Saturday. I think the restaurant has potential but was an off night for us.

Libby's Lakewood Ranch is a great spot for brunch, lunch, or dinner. For this particular reservation, we did brunch. The bottomless mimosas are well made and refilled via carafe so they never run out of glasses. You can order from their brunch or lunch menu which is convenient for those of us who don't love breakfast foods. The staff is polite, quick, and friendly. Our server Martine (not sure of the spelling pronounced Mar-Teen) was excellent! I may just need to make another reservation for next weekend.

The food was good and the service was very good. We sat outside. Really no ambiance as it overlooks the parking lot, but the sound level of the music coming from the speakers was way too loud. It was very annoying and made for difficult conversation at the table.

Amazing food! Wow. We came here for our anniversary dinner and it was excellent. Great outdoor seating. Wonderful live music that wasn’t too loud. FANTASTIC service (shoutout to Lucas for being the best!)

I ordered the soup + Caribbean-style mahi mahi (catch of the day). Both DELISH. My partner ordered the bone-in pork chop and loved it.

We will be back!

My first time there and won't go back. Made reservations but were seated at a small table right in the middle of the floor. The restaurant is loud with many large younger groups and we were seated at a small table for 2 in the middle where everyone was walking at our right, left, behind, and in front. We felt very odd sitting there! Felt like we were in the way of everyone trying to get by.

I don't like leaving bad reviews because I work at a restaurant so I know how difficult it is and still left a generous tip over 20% in cash and put 0 in the tip area of the receipt. When we got our bank statement they made a final charge of 12% more than what I signed for as it looks like they added a tip to the card on their own. I had to call the manager to get this corrected.

Overall, a very bad experience!

The hostess Ella was so friendly and went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed even though it wasn't her job. Our table was ready on time and in the perfect location. The manager Heather was so sweet and came by our table several times to make sure our meal was perfect. We love Libby's and are so glad they are in LWR!!! Food was great! Love the new additions to the menu!

We drive 50 miles to enjoy Libby's and their amazing kale salad. I don't know what they put in the dressing, but it is divine. Highly recommend adding salmon. Service is second to none, every single time.

The knock against Libby’s is slow service. Admittedly it has become quicker over the past few months. Today we experienced the same old sloooow, waiting 30 minutes for an appetizer. When you complain here they pick it up which they did for the entree. Food was very good. We had egg rolls as a n app, chicken special and fish and chips for entree.

This is our new favorite local go to place. It is consistently good; good food, great service, nice, casual ambiance. I’ve met friends for drinks and a light dinner at the bar, shared a birthday dinner, took visitors for brunch, so we’ve experienced all aspects of this great place. My favorite is the Caesar kale with salmon and always have to order the truffle fries; the black and blue burger is amazing as is the home made key lime pie. Mitchell’s is our favorite server...knowledgeable, attentive, professional.

We are now frequent visitors for Libby's. Our server this past week went beyond the normal service we expect at Libby's. He name was Dylan. Dylan, also is serving this county in the armed services. We thank him for his service.

Again, the food was great and the drinks even better. It was very windy outside, but we like sitting outside this time of year. My recommendation to Libby's is to install some roll down screens for the sun. It gets very hot and would be nicer for all outside.

Thanks,

Very good food and drying at reasonable prices. BUT we had 6:45 reservations on a Tuesday in end of March, and when we arrived we were told there was a15 minute delay. We weren't seated till 40 minutes after our reservation time (sided my me prompting for a table). Then when no waitstaff come to us after 20-39 passed, I complained and was then attended to by the manager, who was sweet and apologetic, taking good care of us and treating us to free bottles of good bottled water. The gesture was appreciated. We will go back got cut the excellent food
