I figured that was a good excuse to sit down with Juno Beach native Brian Wilson, 48, who with his wife Jennifer, operates the 60-seat old Florida eatery that features linoleum floors, different colored chairs and tropical art work by locals for sale on the walls.
Why is the restaurant called Lazy Loggerhead?
“A former owner had artwork of a sea turtle laying on its back. He liked it, and that’s how it got the name.”
What kind of crowd do you get?
“We get swimmers and surfers. We get business people all dressed up. We get locals. We get celebrities like (sportscaster) Brent Musburger and (golfer) Rickie Fowler. We don’t have music, television or Internet. We’re just family, friends and food.”
How many daily meals do you serve?
“We just do breakfast and lunch. We serve about 400 daily during the busy season when the line is out the door. We do about 100 daily during the summer.”
What are the most popular menu items?
“For breakfast, it’s the roasted vegetable omelette. For lunch, it’s the blackened mahi.”
