Looking for a good meal at a fair price?? This is the place to be. Wonderful lunch and view. We saw dolphins gathering under the bridge!

For staying in such a nice area of Sarasota this place was dirty! Go a few miles down the road and you have beautiful restaurants and clean places to see. The food was not good and the service wasn't either. We also checked into the bait shop for help and to make a purchase and the service was also terrible.... More

The cheeseburger is great as advertised. The service was very helpful in guiding choices and also refilling drinks and checking our needs. The sidewalk setting in St. Armands is also nice.

I just enjoyed a very tasty and inexpensive lunch at the New Pass Grill & Bait Shop on City Island out in Sarasota Bay. I is directly on the bay at New Pass so convenient to get to by boat or car. There is a full live bait shop and gift shop on the premises. Charter boats operating out of... More

If you like casual and laid back with good inexpensive food, this is the place for you. The view is beautiful. You can sit and watch the fishing boats come in with their catches. They have grouper sandwich specials from time to time that are awesome. Their clam chowder is excellent too. One of our favorite places!

What a great place to have lunch, enjoy the water, watch the dolphins, visit with egrets and pelicans, and chat with other friendly faces! Eat great hamburgers or sandwiches outside on a bench. Have a beer if you want. Watch the boats go by. No stress, no hurry. It's just a shack with bait shop located at the entrance of... More

I saw a photo of this place on a webpage about Sarasota, so following my goal this year of finding some original old-Florida places I stopped there for a late lunch. It is truly a bait and tackle shop, with a dock, on the water of New Pass, which cuts between Lido and Longboat Keys. And this bait shop has... More

We have been to Sarasota many times and decided to go to Mote Marine. On our way out we decided to stop in for a bite of lunch. My husband had the codfish sandwich and I had the chicken salad. They were both VERY tasty. The rolls were sooooo fresh. We split an order of onion rings which were also... More
