Busy. Had to wait 15 mins. even with reservation. Food is very good. Service was ok; had to ask for extra plates for sharing appetizer and dessert several times. Overall good.

The restaurant was packed. Plus they had too many take out orders. Backed up the kitchen. An hour and 15 minutes after arrival we had our food.

Excellent evening. Food was very good, service was excellent. Was a little noisy, but honestly it was nice to see the restaurant so full and people having a good time. We love Libby's and come very often. A staple in Lakewood Ranch.

This was our second trip here and just happened to be anniversary.

Our first visit was outstanding including the waitress who was GREAT, but we were a bit disappointed this time. The restaurant was not extremely busy so that was not a driver.

We started out with a few drinks in the bar and enjoyed the atmosphere and talking to the bartender who had some great recommendations.

When we went be seated(reservations at 5:30), our waiter greeted us, but he seemed very rushed our entire visit. He seemed to just want to move us through as quick as possible and we just wanted to enjoy our time out. We got the hint.

We started with the awesome appetizers of the Joe’s Cast Iron Meatballs(not very warm at all) and the Crispy Brussel Sprouts(perfect) that we enjoyed on our last visit. We decided to order something different and chose the Rotisserie Chicken Carbonara dish. We got our dish and both agreed on this one – we won’t order this one again. Reasons – soupy, minimal amount of chicken and not very warm at all.

We did not complain to the waiter because he seemed fairly rushed the entire time and did not want to get any attitude. A couple sitting next to us sent their dish back before us and not sure what the item was or the reason, but they did not seem happy with our waiter either. Or did he with them.

We will come back again, but maybe not too soon. As stated, our first visit was great and we ordered different main courses.

Wonderful outdoor space, expansive floor to ceiling windows that slide open allowing for an indoor/outdoor experience, terrific service and great food! First visit to Libby's LWR and was pleasantly surprised. Had the Sea Bass Fish & Chips (OMG, delicious!!!) and friend had the Brisket Burger with great side salad which was equally as good. Will definitely be returning!

Key West Pinks Shrimp were terrific. We had the BBQ shrimp and shrimp scampi; very creative use of seasonings and aromatics. Burger was appreciated as was the Benedict. Drinks were weak; mimosa and bloody; only thing I’d pick on. Bread quality was very good. Excellent service and the speed of food delivery was much better than I remember. Lots of outdoor seating if that’s your thing. We were there for brunch on a busy Valentines Day. We will be back!

I have been to Libby's many times and I usually love it. I got the special, Cauliflower steak. It was not good. Very blah, just a piece of cauliflower lightly grilled. The brussell sprouts were good though. It was the special of the day. Also, it was $12! Not quite worth it. I was very disappointed.

My friends were happy with their choices, they loved the Mussels and crab cakes they ordered.
