Fell upon this place while staying in Longboat Key.... The entire staff went out of their way to accommodate us...I have never experienced such a friendly and helpful staff! There were no hidden prices and to top it off the food was superb! The only downside was that there is no outside seating. Check this place out if you are... More

This is a great spot for breakfast or brunch. Good choice of fresh food and prepared hearty omelettes, sandwiches and wraps and constant coffee refills. Bright, busy and spotless with friendly, efficient staff,. Very good value for money.

The Blue Dolphin on Longboat Key is a one shift diner serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week with special Friday dinner service during the busy tourist season (October-April).

Went here twice for breakfast and it was delicious. The place is small but I didn't have trouble finding a table. The service is quick and prices are more than reasonable.

Very casual restaurant located in a neighborhood shopping center. Never have had a problem getting a table or seat at the counter and have enjoyed the pancakes and fresh fruits.
