There are surprisingly few places to dine out on the water around here, but this place provided a VERY casual outdoor eatery. Order food at a window and pick out a chair or table on the dock. The food is good, but just typical burger/fries marina bait shop menu. No health food or salads, if that's what you are after.... More

This is our favorite lunch place. Grilled chicken with onion rings. There is nothing fancy. Find a stool and wait for your name to be called to pick up your order. Sit in the sun, do not feed the birds, watch a fisherman come in to clean the fish and drive up by boat.

We just love this little GEM....on vacation from UK, found this place a few years back. English style cod and chips....better than Ive tasted at home, burgers to die for........A wooden shack on the water, rustic, ants come free, along with dolphins passing by, huge jelly fish or the odd sea cow....This is magic, sit outside watch the boaters pass...

We wanted a waterfront place for lunch with a reasonable price. This place had it all. Yummy food and a view! It was a very hot day, but it was cool in the shade of umbrellas. Grab a cool drink & a sandwich or seafood. Nice restroom as well!

This place is OLD Sarasota and full of history. The food is quick and the fries are VERY good. Views of the bridge and bay and you'll see many a boats pulling up and their fish as well as dolphins frolicking in the bay. Look out for the local birds and a small black crowned night heron in the trees... More

Always good food and beautiful view. Looks like everyone has found our secret breakfast stop, but still very quick service and no change in quantity of food.

Good food at reasonable prices that comes with a great water view. We tried a variety of items and all were very good. Sat at a table by the water that added to the experience. Service is adequate. Will definitely come here again when in the area.

If you're looking for a quick top quality meal then look no further. Perfect place to pop in for a sandwich or burger, great views, spotlessly clean with friendly staff. Great views as well and you might even spot a dolphin or two.

One of our regular spots. The view is amazing and the food isn't expensive and is always hot and delicious. You want to eat on a budget and with locals...this is it.
