The food is good, the restaurant needs upgrading

This restaurant serves good food, but the dated and old decor and building are a big negative. The view is nice as you can choose to sit on the deck and see out over the channel. The meal was nice, nothing more special over other similar restaurants. This is the problem... there is nothing making... read more

If you are looking for seafood and a great view, this is a very nice place to go and eat. Pleasant staff (always busy) and excellent seafood. The place is old, like most places we visited in Bradenton, it's an old city and the economy hasn't been easy for most Florida establishment, Motels, Restaurants and stores. If you have been...

This restaurant has been there forever. Yes it is old and it looks it, but they serve the best fried shrimp in the area, lightly coated and flashed-fried, so delicious. The stone crabs are good too. It caters to the older generation and many boaters patronize the place. Of course it'd be a lot nicer if the place were renovated... More

Is it rustic or old? I go with old. Great setting, the food was mediocre at best. Just got a few drinks and appetizers. Keep it simple. Older crowd.

We really loved the casual atmosphere and view at Moore's. Our server Liegh Anne was very helpful and fun. We shared the stone crab dinner. It comes with hush puppies and bisque. Everything was great.

My family has been eating at Moore's for over 20 years and the place has never been updated. The fan blowing in the bathroom is covered in dust, the bathroom is distrusting, the dining room looks the same for the past 20 years except it get's more run down every year. The prices rises every year…

Service here was stellar! But the food just ok and pretty pricey. The fried platter tasted like it was from a frozen bag. Didn't look fresh by any means. They are known for their stone crab and they are good but they are "market price". I thought my total meal for surf and turf would run about $40, but to... More

This is a classic dockside Florida restaurant that specializes in serving both hot and cold stone crabs when they are in season. They are typically better than those found at the more famous

We ate here with a group of couples. The room we were placed in had a musty smell and was a bit stuffy. When asked they did increase the air conditioning promptly. The server was friendly and fairly attentive. I had the crab cakes with the mixed vegetable and that was very good. I also had some chowder and thought... More
