Guests of The Lazy Chameleon feast their eyes on marine-themed décor while matching their appetites against a menu of innovative seafood dishes, sandwiches, and dinner fare. Awaken taste buds by jumping them through hoops of thai calamari, decked in teriyaki sauce and crushed peanuts ($9.49). The loco coconut shrimp gild their golden shells in spicy fruit jam ($13.49), while the Baja fish tacos slip blackened tilapia into tortillas lined with cabbage, salsa, and cilantro lime sauce ($8.49). The philly steak sandwich entices diners to mouth-tackle its hoagie bun piled with 8 ounces of sirloin steak ($8.95), while a trio of scallop sliders ($12.99) dressed in chipotle mayonnaise drown outs tummy grumbles better than reciting the Pledge of Allegiance through a microphone.

Diners can also linger on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to surf the live sonic waves of local bands.
The Lazy Chameleon
At The Lazy Chameleon, chefs bring out the best in fresh seafood with tropical flourishes: cilantro-lime sauce is drizzled over blackened tilapia, for instance. Additionally, they feature traditional bar favorites such as their signature lazy coca cola bbq ribs and hand-pattied seasoned ground chuck signature burgers. The environs are similarly subtropical, with hanging fishnets and verdant plants enlivening the dining room. In keeping with the jovial atmosphere, guests can try out experimental dance moves to the beat of live music four nights a week or feel the adrenaline rush that accompanies winning a card game at euchre night on Tuesday.
