This is a very casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating on the back bay on Longboat Key. Very dockside vibe with on tap beers, wine. cocktails and live music outdoors, good seafood--very fresh. Their signature seafood is stone crab but they were out of season so we were not able to order any. I had a seafood platter--they have... More

Great place for stone crabs but off season it is a little tired. It is a good place for families and welcomes boaters.

Wife and I saw they have all you can eat (up to six) whole Maine lobsters for under $30. If still hungry then they pile on the crab legs! Who can eat that much lobster? Four is overdoing it, but drawn butter, the best hush puppies in Florida, a killer water view and happy hour wine for $3 served table... More

Stone crab is tasty and fresh. Restaurant has great ambience and located along the water. If you're in the Longboat Key area, this is a definite stop for fresh seafood!

The dining room and porch have a full water view. There are tables on the porch as well as in the medium sized comfortable glassed in dining room. The prices are fair considering the quality offered. The yellow fin tuna was the best I've had, my wife said the stuffed shrimp is outstanding. The bar has quality brands and very... More

I enjoy coming here every time I visit LBK, the inside has certainly seen better days, I prefer sitting outside. However the dated decor doesn't change how great the seafood is at this place!!!

We love Moore's. It has the "Old Florida" feel with fresh seafood. This place has been around for a very long time and you will see why when you go there. The staff is always friendly and they take good care of you. The food is amazing! Give it a try you will not be disappointed!

A Longboat classic, great seafood (and wings!) in the best location you could ask to find. I have been eating there by boat or car since 1980. Love the Florida home town feel, inside and outside! No one better for stone crabs, anywhere ! Great service, family owned! It shows!
