Stopped in after the theater and enjoyed a drink under the Tiki's watching the boats coming in and out. Very romantic stop at night. I didn't eat but my drink of was great and I will definitely make it back there to have a meal... just a great location!

Been to O'Leary's many times and had just about the entire menu. The food can by so so...nothing too special except the chips and salsa. If you love salsa, this stuff is made by a local in Sarasota and delicious! Typically live music all the time, seating inside and out. Clean bathrooms. Great views of the bay.

Average bar fare, but the sunset and cocktails match - both are spectacular. Low key, live music and dog friendly add to the atmosphere.

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
