Easy access by boat to Moore's. Sat outside on a beautiful day. Impressed with many choices on menu. Wife and I each had a good glass of Mondavi Cabernet. We both had sherry crab and lobster bisque, many chunks of crab and lobster, honestly could have more sherry. Wife then had more apps - a crab roll (deep fried) and... More

I boat a lot and love docking here for lunch or dinner. I have been going here for many years and been very happy with the food, service and value. I fish and I know that their seafood is local and fresh. Must have recommendations: Crab rolls, seafood chowder, and for a big, more than you can eat dinner, the... More

Great location on N Longboat Key situated right on the Bay. Stone crabs are always great and loved the conch fritters as well. Soft shell crabs & lobster were also tasty. Waiter seemed new to the place. We will be back next time we are in town!

We always make at least one trip to Moore's while vacationing on LBK. The food is good and it is always fun to sit outside while dining

It is noisy, the stone crabs are wonderful, but I can get them other places. Not very clean, waitstaff could be friendlier.I order a seafood pasta that was very bland. I am not planning to return.

Great location, great potential, but the food was disappointing. Lobster/Crab bisque was the only thing we enjoyed. Lobster Mac & Cheese was dry and needed something?? Maine lobster roll would be considered good is you like your lobster salad pre-made from a container. Need to go to Maine I guess a see how it supposed to be done or call... More

We stopped by Moore's for lunch after a fun morning on the boat. My first time to visit and I really enjoyed the food! I had a mixed platter with a crab cake, fried clams, blackened shrimp and blackened grouper, along with a salad. All very good. Hubby had shrimp and scallops and a salad. Doggy friendly, Scout had a... More

The seafood was tasty and the service friendly. Enjoy a water view but without the alluring atmosphere of some of the nearby restaurants.

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path in a lovely location on the water. I was a little worried when we walked in because the inside was very dark and dated. We chose to sit outside which was nice, but still in need of a décor refresh. My friend and I decided to eat there particularly for the... More

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
