Great value

This restaurant is a really good value for fresh fish with a view. The room is old and the customers are mostly seniors but for the price, I have no complaints. The service was excellent, the water view was nice and the food was good. They have daily specials like conch fritters. The wine list is... read more

Had planned to anchor but were lucky enough to tie up to the dock. Helpful bartender / server had a lot of people to serve and did it well. The onion rings were MUCH better than average!!! We will be back.

Moores is in an old Florida style building that looks like it has been around for years. We have been meaning to try the place for a long time but it is always so busy that we have never had the opportunity. Finally we went for a very early dinner. Had a great lobster bisque and lightly battered fish and... More

This is old Florida at its best! When Stone Crabs are in season, this is the place to go and have a great dining experience. Wait staff is very knowledgeable and so friendly. The sign of Gulf of Mexico Drive is small - right before the bridge to Anna Maria - but the water view is beautiful. Yummy food in... More

Been going to Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant for over 30 years. Go there not for the ambiance but for the stone crabs. Cost $85.00 for three of what they called jumbo....not. They said it was a bad year for stone crabs but that price was terrible. Would still go back because I love stone crabs.

My SO and I wanted to enjoy a nice dinner on the water with the setting more important than food. It was a perfect evening for just this and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The coconut shrimp appetizer was second to none. Absolutely delicious!!! I would not recommend the lobster bisque. The key lime pie was really really good. Mostly... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the area, always top of our list when on holiday. Best coconut shrimp around! Wonderful service, and lovely to walk out on the jetty's after dinner and try to spot some dolphin!

We stayed around the corner for the month, so made Moores a regular place for dinner.. Couldn't beat the consistent good food, decent prices, and terrific setting. We took friends, family and went alone...each time was wonderful.

Sat outside and watched the fish jump and the pelicans and the sail boats. Lovely ambiance. The stone crab was delicious and the mustard sauce amazing. I've eaten at Joe's Stone Crab in Miami many times, they are not quite there ... but still very good! Yes, the restaurant is dated and stone crab is expensive (seriously - what do... More
