This restaurant was recommended to us by some other guests who were staying at the same place where we were staying. We were so glad we took their advice to eat there. It is really nothing special to look at. It is at the end of the boatyard. We ate on the outdoor patio. Very casual, relaxed atmosphere. Our waitress... More

This is a hidden gem that has been here forever and worth stopping for a grouper sandwich. It is a bar and grill atmosphere and has live music on the weekend. Great place to grab a quick bite for lunch or dinner.

My girl friend and I were at the Florida maritime museum and walked down the block stumbling into this awesome place! It was Saturday night and there was a rocking band Dough Deming and the Jewel Tones. Seems like they have music there often from the calendar I saw. The place was packed but with patience we got a table... More

Such atmosphere. A very special place to take your guests. Besides the food they just love all the action in the water fish, boats all kinds a native birds. Such a very happy place to be. You can see out on to the bay waters for ever. Sometimes a little fishey when the boats come in to fill the crates... More

Here you have the best of both worlds. You can have them cook the fresh catch or you can buy it to go. The restaurant serves fresh seafood as well as drinks. The fish market sells fresh fish and they are open all year round seven days a week. Don't go on Mondays to the restaurant cause they are closed... More

I get greek salad and lemon orzo soup almost every time I go. Love their spaghetti also for lunch special. Like lex and her father very much. Just old style diner with great greek choices and low key. Not pretentious at all. The rich and poor all go. Really like it. It is what it is.

Love going there for breakfast, even for lunch. The problem is that it is so popular, you may have to wait outside to wait on a table. You can forget it during the "season", the snowbirds flock to this place so you got a even longer wait. Best time to get there is very early or after 10:30.

I was on Anna Maria with eight friends. We went here looking for fresh fish, and we were not dissappointed. I had blackened grouper, shrimp and scallops, and they were outstanding. Nice selection of too. Everyone in my group was equally happy with their meals. Our waitress was great as well.

Wholesome, good priced, honest food. Excellent service We go every year from the UK just for the grouper sandwich and the shrimp. Fri, sat and Sunday are live music too. Even more happy days on the dock

We had driven by Cortez Kitchen on an earlier visit to Longboat Key and decided the next time we were there we would try it. We went on a Tuesday evening. The menu is limited, it's not the best value for your money, and there are predominately fried foods on the menu. I had the fried oysters, which were good... More
