We really want to like Libby's, but the sad fact is they cannot find or don't have enough manpower to operate the place. Server was great, but it appeared she was the only person waiting on tables. We know the state of affairs in the service sector, but when do you limit the tables to ensure good service? Food was great and really felt the energy of our server, but could tell she was running around with her head in her lap.

We always enjoy eating here. Various dishes are consistently good quality and on the healthier side. Great salad options and fresh seafood. I do enjoy eating outside, but the last couple times we have needed to dine indoors due to the flies. That would be the improvement I would most like to see.

We made a reservation online and even though online only had outdoor seating the hostess was able to get us at an indoor table. Our waitress greeted us promptly although between the acoustics and her mask it was difficult to hear her. We ordered drinks which arrived quickly. We ordered to aMZINg Mac and Cheese appetizer as well as the Brussels Sprouts. The Mac and Cheese was to die for, the Brussels sprouts were good although a bit over spiced. For dinner I ordered the black and blue sliders, my husband the Brisket burger and my son the fish and chips. Our main course took a bit of time to arrive but more on that later. We all greatly enjoyed our meals…my wine literally gobbled his up! The black and blue sliders were so juicy and cooked to perfection. We all loved the accompanying fries. Throughout the meal our waitress regularly checked in to make sure our needs were met. As we finished the waitress came of with a small plate containing 3 forks and told us she had a surprise for us. Soon complimentary slices of key lime cheesecake and the chocolate decadence cheesecake arrived. Even though we were all completely full, we dug in. OH MY GOODNESS were they delicious. The manager came over to thank us for our patience on the arrival of our main courses and wish us well on the rest of the evening. We would have been back anyway but now even more so! Thanks for a great meal!

Sorry to hear about the sirloin, normally that herb butter on top of it is fantastic. I highly recommend the Filet with our Port Wine Reduction and Bleu Cheese Crust... it's life changing. Thanks so much for the feedback, hope to see you back in soon! Matt Passardi General Manager

I don’t know if it was the server or the kitchen, but it took over half an hour to get drinks. Another 20 for appetizers, then 20+ after the appetizers to get dinner. I’m unlikely to go back.

Unfortunately, we were seated near the carry out table and it was jammed with so many bags and people. The noise level is very high, and can hardly hear anything at across the table. Our service was very good and our entrees were very good.

We dined on the orange chicken, crab cakes, french fries and coleslaw--all were very good. Enjoyed it with a bottle of Meiomi. The food is quite good and so is the service. My husband commented that they have a variety of food and they're all delicious. This is a little neighborhood gem that we are happy to have near us.

We chose to have brunch at Libby’s last Sunday. Just something simple. We both ordered the eggs, over easy, bacon, toast and potato patty. The eggs were perfectly cooked, though somewhat cold upon arrival, as was the toast (unbuttered) and bacon. One plate had very thick, jerky like bacon, while the other plate had small, under cooked wobbly bacon. We asked for butter for the toast and jam, which eventually arrived. Although this all sounds like we didn’t like it, actually it was all just fine. The waiter was a very nice fellow, charming and eager to see that we enjoyed ourselves. They just need to improve their time to table.

The only negative thing to say is there is a hostess with long dark hair that wore her mark below her nose and mouth. I thought that maybe I caught her just for the moment. If you wear a mask, wear the mask as it’s intend to be worn. I’m totally surprised that the manager didn’t say something to her!! We need to stop the spread!

Laughable in a good way. Food was excellent. They had no sparkling water, nor did they have chilled wine. They didn’t know how to chill it either. Everyone liked their appetizers and main course. My steak was very rare and took two tries to get it medium, which is what I ordered. The waiter was diligent, responsible and even laughed at his own mistakes and overall a delight. It took quite a bit of time to navigate thru the meal and dessert. My guess is that it’s just post-covid growing pains as it’s hard to get experienced staff and polish procedures on a busy Friday night. If you keep your expectations moderate you will not be disappointed. Would I go back? Absolutely as they will be more capable as time goes by. I wish it was a bit quieter, all in all we had fun, an enjoyable “win”.

This is definitely THE best restaurant in Lakewood Ranch. After several disappointing meals in LWR I am so happy to find Libby’s. The food is excellent and prices very reasonable, especially the lunch specials. Everything I have had has been great. The filet mignon egg rolls, honey bourbon salmon and BBQ combo are my favorites so far. Check their daily specials and happy hour for great deals. They also have the best key lime pie anywhere in town. Super creamy, nice think crust and not to sweet or tart. My new favorite place where I will be a frequent customer!

Went here looking to find a new good restaurant. Some of the menus were sticky. The table they sat us in looked like it had been outside and was not clean. Once seated at a cleaner table, we were hoping it was going to be better. The food was fine, we had apps, dinner, and dessert, but it was nothing that would keep me coming back.

Hey Michelle, very sorry to hear about the menus and first table selection. I have shared this review with the host team and our bussers to ensure we are wiping all menus between uses as well as getting those tables clean ASAP. Would love to have you back in for a round of drinks on me to give you a better first impression to your meal. Thanks again so much for the feedback! Matt Passardi General Manager

Libby's new location in Lakewood Ranch is generally excellent with outstanding food. One problem, however, is it's very noisy inside, making conversation a little difficult. Additionally, the service was pretty good, however, with the restaurant being busy serving both inside and out, and possibly a little short-staffed due to current pandemic conditions, it was a little slow and the food took quite awhile to be brought to the table.
