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.
Was a great night out dining with friends with our waiters Brian and Hunter taking great care of and allowing us to have a little fun with them.
Great food, great service, reasonable prices. Goof ambitious
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!
Excellent food and service
Make sure to bring a sweater. It was so chilly the windows were completely fogged-up!
Delicious food & great atmosphere!
Thanks so much for the feedback!
ordered the All American breakfast......white BREAD was barely toasted and served cold.....scrambled eggs were quite runny......hash brown patty was NOT as pictured.....instead they served a frozen hash brown patty that tasted of old fryer grease.....
The server was very good..the food was just okay; the sirloin really had no taste to it..the garlic green beans made up for it..
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
Always great took our dog too👍
Thanks so much for the feedback! We love pups out on the patio!
Our favorite place for brunch! Best mimosas in the area!
Food was outstanding. The service was great and that’s unusual in these times.
Fun restaurant with good food. It's wonderful that it is close and convenient to get to.
The grilled salmon one of tastiest
Dishes I’ve eaten. !
Thank you so much for the feedback!
Service was great and so was food
Thank you so much for the feedback!
The food was delicious and delivered quickly around lunchtime. Our server, Allison, was excellent. So, I will eat here again soon as I saw many things on the menu that I would like to try.
Thanks so much for the feedback! Glad you loved the food and Alllison. Hope to see you back 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.
Great meals and wonderful outdoor seating! This has been a wonderful new addition to our grandma’s favorite place to go and it’s safe for her to sit outside and eat!
Thank you very much for the feedback Jorie. If you bring a copy of your receipt or tell me how many points you earned and your full card number, I can add those points for you. We have lot's of new servers finally hired and getting ready to serve you, if you ever have any issues at all please do not hesitate to ask for me right away. Thanks so much! Matt Passardi General Manager
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.
Great food great service. Came from out of town but will definitely return
Thanks so much for the feedback Danica! Matt Passardi General Manager
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.
Thanks so much for the feedback Gemgarden! Glad to see you back in! Matt Passardi General Manager
Ordered an item. Didn’t come with meal. Then was told it would be coming. Never came.
Sorry to hear about the brussels. Let me know next time you are in and I would be happy to bring you an order on me. Matt
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.
Good food, good service!
Thanks so much for the feedback Pamela!
Group of seven for brunch. Our server did an excellent job.
Thanks so much for the feedback Ken!
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”.
Food was excellent. Our server, Kyle, was very attentive and friendly. Libby’s is now on our regular rotation. Each dish is just as impressive as the last. Two thumbs up!
Thanks for the feedback Jenny!
Our seat was right next to servers and peppers, so the ambience was slightly diminished due to their activity but it did not really affect the value of our experience there. 5 stars!
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!
Thanks so much for the feedback! We really appreciate you coming in. Matt Passardi General Manager
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.
Everything we ordered was delicious. The only complaint was the food wasn’t very hot when served. Other than that, it was a very nice dining experience.
Food is good, just not great.
Our favorite go to place. Management and staff are the best in the business.
It's no longer a hidden gem as this place has been discovered!
Thanks so much for the feedback Jensen glad you consider is a gem! Matt Passardi General Manager
Excellent Service and Food! Seating are was a little noisy.
Thanks so much for the kind words about food and service. Matt Passardi General Manager
Great neighborhood spot for casual dining. The sea bass fish and chips was outstanding and the wine specials are a great value. Our server Rob was very attentive and had a good sense of humor.
Thanks so much for the feedback Wayne glad you enjoyed everything! Matt Passardi General Manager
Great food, good service. It can be a little loud if there are a lot of people there but it’s worth it for the food.
Thanks so much for the feedback! Glad you love the food! Matt Passardi General Manager
