Great place for a meal or to stop in for a drink. We chose indoor seating but still had a wonderful view of the water. I had a salad with grilled chicken while my husband enjoyed their grouper sandwich. Location & food were very good. Our waitress, Carol, had a great personality & made our time there all the more...

Have been coming here for over 10 years and it just keeps getting better! Love the food, the service is fantastic, ask for Natalie, one of the best servers there!

Confused servers (didn't know who should serve us), overpriced for small portions, bland coconut shrimp with horrible dipping sauce, warm beer (with a bitter lime -- didn't realize it until it was in the Corona), dogs were okay but the pet bird pooping at the bar was a little over the top. Reading this, I'm surprised I gave it 2... More

We visited the outdoor bar as well as the inside restaurant and enjoyed ourselves immensely -Wait staff, bartenders, all were friendly folks. Met so many fun and interesting people here. We will be back next year for sure! Don't forget to ask the bartender outside for a shot of George Clooney's small batch tequila. Only place you can get it... More

As we were staying around the corner, we found ourselves going back to the Bridge Tender Inn several times over the course of our stay. We visited for both lunch and dinner and were happy each time. Coming from the cold of New England in February, the warmth of the outdoor seating was a welcome feeling! Our first visit was... More

The view of the water was very nice. The food was very good. The service was good too. She got a bit confused because of our large party, but she did fine. The prices were reasonable too. Definitely recommend eating here.

We stopped in on a Sun. Evening to watch the golf finish on TV. There was entertainment, a solo guy singing who rapped up shortly after our arrival. We had grouper bites and a sandwich and excellent strawberry daiquiris. We came back later in the week for another daiquiri, but this time enjoyed the outdoor bar. Steps away from the... More

Wait staff was attentive and friendly. View was nice with the city of Sarasota in the background. Tables were kind of old and needed paint. I would go back since the food was good. Try it.

Someone recommended this to us, so we went. It's just average. On the other hand The Beach Bistro near there is first rate.
