I ate there last night. I had the chicken parmigiana. It was awesome. The serving was huge. My kids had a pepperoni pizza. They also enjoyed their meal.

If you have Fido with you and you would like to enjoy a nice casual Italian Meal, head to the North End of LBK. Bayou Tavern has great food in a family run casual setting.

We have a Timeshare on Longboat key, after visiting in March we decided to come back again (May 2015). Food and service are consistantly good. Their Seafood is fresh and tasty. A couple of days later we also ordered takeout pizza- again all fresh ingrediants and tasty. We will be back on our next visit to Longboat key.
