We visited this restaurant with friends who had been there before. Stone crabs were in season, so our friend especially wanted them, and she was very satisfied. My spouse and I had combination seafood platters, and they were fine, but not any thing special. Friends also had the key lime pie, which they really enjoyed. So, if they were writing... More

We were looking for dinner on Longboat Key and landed here. Old and quaint with wooden captain chairs. The service was friendly. The soup was very good and the choices are many. I came for the stone crabs and they were very good.

My husband had fond memories of this restaurant from visits in the 70s with his parents, so we went looking for it while staying on Anna Maria Island. Well worth the trip. We were there for lunch. Eat outside if possible. Nice quiet spot to watch the boats and birds. I had the crab lobster bisque, my husband the clam... More

Stone crab was okay, but not what we expected. Maybe our expectations were too high. The fish in the fish and chips was mushy and not good. The chips were good. Ate inside due to weather. This place needs a makeover.

Good food and we had a great server. The view is amazing IF you can get outside but when sitting inside the decor is very dated and you can be too far away to see much of the water. Zero complaints with the food or service.

Stone crabs are like crack for me. This place did the job. Great view and good service added to the experience. I indicated a high cost per person. That isn't a reflection of the restaurant. Stone crabs are expensive.

We were a party of eight. Service was very good. Food was ok but frankly not one that any of us will remember. Lobster/crab bisque was very good. A number of us had one of the various platters. A lot of the seafood was battered, degrading the food. In a couple of cases the fish was overdone. We hear the... More

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.
