Excellent hamburger

Loved the hamburger, not sure what you call those buns. Fries okay to me, but my mom really like those too. You sit outside. On the road with Mote Aquarium.

Stopped in for lunch, and even through the exterior is very "rustic Looking" was surprised at the quality of the food. Cash only. Burgers were great, fries very good. Only outdoor seating, but for people watching, viewing the wild life, seagulls, etc. very good. Met and talked to a painter who was working as she painted and was very interesting.... More

This place does not look like it has quality food but appearances can be deceiving. I had a superb burger and my wife had a cod sandwich . She said it was the best she'd ever tasted . Then there was the fries , really tasty . It was also fantastic value . I might travel the 4000 miles next... More

For the money, the best burger I have eaten anywhere ! I am in Sarasota/Longboat Key often and always stop here. The location on Ken Thompson Pkwy is right on the bay and very relaxing. The location on St Armand's Circle is also very nice for sitting outside. Do not miss this cheeseburger !!

While staying on Longboat Key for a holiday last summer, I popped here for a quick breakfast on a few occasions. Brilliant American breakfast, really reasonable in price and a gorgeous view of the water and wild life! Looking forward to going back when I'm on Longboat Key later this year!

Just happened upon this waterfront dockside eatery while driving around Longboat Key. SOOO glad we stopped. It was the perfect place for a good fish sandwich. I had the fried shrimp and it was just OK. Onion rings were a disappointment but the ambience and view were worth the price of admission. Only seating is outside and it was very... More

Swing in here at least once a week... Never disappointed. Fried clams, hot dog or a delish tuna salad sandwich. Classic old Florida eatery. Mix with the fishermen, tourists, locals and what a mixed bag you have. Fast friendly service. Lines get long, you have the option of calling your order in ahead of time. Cleanest bathrooms in the world!!!

They have great burgers and fried food. All outdoor seating. We have lunch there at least once a week. Fun to sit by the docks and see the fishing guides bring in their clients with the catch and clean it and feed the birds
