Situated on Sarasota Bay with indoor and outdoor dining. Views excellent. Service was great but would rate food as good. Only dined there once for dinner but would go again.

The AYCE crab legs are just ok. Very small and watery. The restaurant itself needs a face lift, it has a very old decor, furniture etc. The service wasn't anything to write home about, and drinks are over priced.

The stone crab season in Florida is, in and of itself, a treat. But it also herald the Thanksgiving/Christmas season ... and give another opportunity for celebration. This visit with friends was no exception. The demand was such that there were no large or jumbo claws, but the mediums we selected were a gourmet delight. The always present hush puppies... More

The food is very good, the building looks pretty much the same as it probably did 50 years ago. We had an assortment of dishes, they were all very good. The stone crab was excellent.

I had heard this was a highly rated restaurant. I can not rate it high. First it is extremely expense. My wife ordered fried shrimp and could hardly eat them because they were so tough. I had soft shell crabs. I have had better at other places.Waite staff very good.

We were looking forward to this restaurant; the location is beautiful right on the water; my husband had the seafood pasta which was good, however I had the crabcakes which were very salty, in fact one of them was so salty it burnt my lips - on mentioning this to the waitress she told the kitchen - their comment was...

I looked on Tripadvisor before we came here. I decided to keep in mind seeing most bad reviews were about the price. I had the stone crab and it was better here than anywhere else I have tried it. The view is to kill here. You are literally right on the water and they have a dock where you can... More

We had a very good dinner here last year. 8 of us went on a Friday night expecting it to be very busy. Hardly anyone there. It is because the quality of the food is terrible. The stone crabs were dried out, the fried items were really greasy, the service smart alec and the restaurant dim and tired. Will never... More

The guy who owns the place is a wonderful greeter and that always is a big plus. The waitress was a sweet young lady and very attentive. My husband and I each have the fried soft shelled crabs with a salad and a cup of clam chowder. Our friends had the crab cakes and the red snapper. All of the... More

Start of crab season and just driving around at end of our vacation found us at Moores. Turned off at the price of the claws, we opted for shrimp and salmon entres. Found meals tastey and appropriately sized. Decor is what I expected for waterfront Florida - as are the prices. Older and wood / formica (little tile on piers... More
