Just fire the older lady cashier and lose the live music during lunch... if you're the owner, learn friendly customer service. Everything else great

We did not have food here, stopped for a drink on a warm Sunday night. This is a fun place for drinks and people watching. The drinks are good and reasonably priced, the bartenders are fun and helpful. We received a running commentary from Paul on what he was making, will make choices easier next time. Located right on the... More

O'Learys sounds more like an Irish pub than a tropical style atmosphere. Don't let the name fool you. The restaurant is on the bay and the view is priceless. The food is OK also.

We came across this place on vacation and we will definitely be back. Kid friendly and parents can still enjoy a cocktail. Good food too.

O'Leary's has good, typical bar/pub food, with AWESOME views of Sarasota Bay. I've gone here many time while visiting family, and we always grab a seat at one of the many picnic tables they have set outside right next to the water. It's a great place to relax, have a beer, and enjoy the amazing sunsets in Sarasota.

A small Tiki hut manned by a nice bartender. But that is about it. The food looked okay but not good enough for us to order any. The other bad part was could not pick up any internet signal and they do not offer free wifi. Bummer, but I guess you should being enjoying the view instead of trying to... More

Stopped in for quick lunch by the water but the grilled chicken sandwich was not cooked. Seems like it was our fault! Won't bother again

We rode bike here and had sandwiches. Service was very fast. You do have to get up and order yourself as no server comes by. Excellent daquiris. Just a fun little place to eat, nothing fancy.

If you can get past the birds that flock to your table I recommend the gator bites.. they were delish. We went for lunch and had drinks. It's in a great location.

Had a late afternoon drink there. Mango daiquiri was good. French fries & onion rings were a little greasy though. Very casual & relaxing atmosphere, right on the water. Fun little place for a drink.
