Lazy Lobster in Sarasota rebranded as Kacey’s Seafood & More

The Lazy Lobster on Lockwood Ridge Road in Sarasota has been transformed into Kacey’s Seafood and Morea sister restaurant to the popular Kacey’s on Fruitville Road.

According to co-owner Michael Garey, he and his partners decided to rename the 15-year-old Lazy Lobster because Kacey’s on Fruitville has been so successful with its diverse and appealing menu, viable lunch options and neighborhood prices.

Garey and his partners, his wife Catherine, Bob Fracalossy and his wife, Kay Kivenski, also own the Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key and Tyler’s Gourmet Ice Cream on Cortez Road and Longboat Key.

“The Lazy Lobster on Longboat Key will remain the same,” added Garey. “The menu is always good value and ideal for island dining. Kacey’s varied menu, friendly staff, prompt service and moderate prices are appealing in other places.
