Great lunch spot

Excellent position over looking the Bay. Informal, order and pay for drinks and food at the bar. You're given a bleeper for the food, which you collect when ready from the kitchen hatch. Good selection of food items, freshly cooked. We tried the blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich, cheese dog and the... read more

We were there twice. The first time was just after getting into Sarasota and the rain was coming down! We had fun though at the outside bar and were made to feel really welcome by Pete the bartender. GREAT drinks.

We stopped here for a drink by the water.....that's exactly what you get. A drink by the waters edge. A great spot to spend a Friday afternoon relaxing in the sun.

Enjoy the lovely Sarasota Bay and grab one of the best Grilled Fish Salads around! Sit at the Tiki bar and talk to locals, walk around the bayfront or to Unconditional Surrender and enjoy a great mixed drink at just the right price!

On a sunny day in Sarasota and especially if you own a pooch......you can sit here by the water's edge and have a fish sandwich or many other choices on the menu. You have to go and get it yourself - no table service - but who cares when your dog is at your side?

While it was cool and breezy, we decided to have a waterfront lunch at O'Leary's. You order inside and they give you a pager telling you when your order is up. We both ordered a cheese burger which was very good. We sat out on the patio that was enclosed due to the weather with heaters making it comfortable. There... More

The best part was the view overlooking the water. We arrived late so missed the sunset. I ordered cheeseburgers and was not happy with the quality. They were thick blobs of meat which were smaller than the dry buns. I wasn't asked how I wanted them cooked so they were overcooked well done and dry. The fries were barely warm... More

We stopped here for snacks and drinks. Great outdoor location on the water. The clam bites and cod bites were both delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Great park nearby to walk around in and enjoy the view of the water.

This is a tiki bar and restaurant on the bay. We only had drinks no food. They do not have a Happy Hour but some beer specials. Later in the evening I think they had some live music.
