Grilled To Perfection

We docked for lunch at O'leary's halfway through fishing with Tearin Em Up fishing charter. The charter Captain Doug filleted our snapper, black drum and grouper fish caught that morning. O'Leary's took the fish, blackened, seasoned and cooked it all to an amazing perfection. One in our party... read more

The location on the marina and the outdoor seating is amazing, The food is simple, tasty and fast. You place the order at the counter and it is a self service. Just the place to be in nice weather with a cold pitcher of beer.

I have been here multiple times including for lunch, dinner, and drinks. I have never had a bad experience. They have live music seemingly all the time, and the atmosphere is fun and relaxing. There is a small beach that you can sit on, and you have a great view of the bay and marina. The drinks are good and... More

Grab a seat at the tiki bar and order a beer or cocktail from the friendly and efficient bartenders. A local troubadour sang lovely ballads from contemporary to oldies while we enjoyed the camaraderie of locals and tourists alike under the burning tiki torches. A few couples began to dance in the covered area with picnic tables, while others joined... More

Greeted at the dock by the attendant for rentals, enjoyed grilled chicken on caesar salad, cod fingers and fries, and Mahi sandwich with slaw. Easy ordering and self serve when ready. Overall the four of ushappy, maui sandwich only OK. Atmosphere great on Sarasota Bay. Solo guitarist playing, singing requests.

Yes, the food is average. It is nothing fancy, rough and rustic, picnic tables/benches in the sand - nothing wrong with that! Some reviewers claim 'weak drinks' -- my wife said the same thing about her first mai tai - she was 'singing' a different tune after her second drink. 5 bartenders were behind a small bar, dancing around each...

If you are looking for a nice little place for a beverage on the water, O'Leary's is a good choice. Bartenders are really attentive (at least the day we were there) and the prices are what you would expect to pay to drink on the water. We ordered some nachos, and they really weren't stellar, so we weren't too quick... More
