We enjoyed our meals here very much. The service was excellent (Bill), our Lobster & Crab Legs dinners were delicious. Great atmosphere, our kids loved the docks outside. We highly recommend this restaurant.

This place has been around forever. Haven't been in about 5 years and was surprised how much it has changed. Our food was the normal run of the mill seafood. With all the restaurants in the area to choose from I think they need to run it a notch. Our server was very nice and attending.

Previous reviews were good, took a chance and were disappointed in the food, greasy and overcooked. The server was very nice and attentive, just very hard to make up for rather bad food.

This place has been around forever. They have inside and outside seating which is nice when the weather is good. Service was really good. The food just didn't seem like it was super fresh or well prepared. Peel and eat shrimp were over cooked and they were pretty dirty. Not appetizing to be cleaning out shrimp vein with my fingers....

Amazing stone crab claws. Staff was so welcoming. Great place to bring kids. The waitress even brought my kids a sharks tooth for each one of them.

Business trip to Lido Key and I happened to find this restaurant on Trip Advisor and thought I would try it. Took three colleagues and we sat outside in the very casual area on the marina and had a really nice dinner. It was breezy in early-April and not yet warm enough to sit outside for a long period of... More

My husband and I went for a little ride on Sunday.We ended up on Anna Maria Island and found a great little restaurant there. We sat by the window and admired the view of the water and the boats docked there. It was quiet and peaceful. I ordered scallops which was a good choice because the were cooked to perfection... More

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Excellent waterside fish house. Ask for Rachel to be your waitress. Moore brothers run and own this gem in paradise. Stone crabs are the best. Fresh and so tasty. Go there by May 15, as stone crab season is over after May 15. Other seafood items are available. Menu offers a large variety of entrees,... More

This is the best place for Stone Crabs on Longboat Key. It's other seafood is also good, but not as good as Mar Vista, which is right next door. When visiting either, as you turn off of Gulf of Mexico Drive, drive slowly and look for the many peacocks in the Old Florida neighborhood. The residents hate them but they... More

The best thing about Moore's is you can always get in. the fish is good too. The restaurant is dreary even though it looks over the bay. Their speciality is stone crabs and this year they have been very expensive.
