Feet up, drink in hand and enjoy the scenary!

This is always a must-go restaurant when visiting Long Boat Key, great menu choice, always ask for a table outside and watch the sun set. Proper Floridian food, very good value for money. Fantastic attentive staff. Can't wait to go back again next year!

It was awful. The service, the food, the drinks, and the atmosphere. The food tasted reheated and from frozen. The margarita I ordered tasted like salt water and cheap tequila. The place smelled funny and the service was non-existent. I had such high hopes for this place but really it was just bad. The highlight of the meal was seeing... More

Moore's has always been a must-visit on our trips to Longboat Key. No longer. I can't remember a time we've had a more horrible meal. The scallops were so underdone as to be inedible and the crab cake was burnt. The tower of onion rings, always a favorite, was no longer on the menu. Only the crab bisque was tasty,... More

You will love this place. Family owned, great service and great food. Stop by the old village and enjoy the beautiful view of the Inter-Coastal Waterway. Fresh seafood flown in.

Good food, good prices, wonderful service! And the view is great, getting to watch the dolphins in the bay while we ate made it perfect!

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 me wish to return. The... 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.
