O'Leary's is a place to feel like you are one vacation even if you a not on vacation. We live in Sarasota , this is where we take visitors to relax, enjoy the view and have fun. Kids and doggies are welcome and even given water and treats. The bar people are friendly and do a great job taking care... More

If you need to relax after work, I can't imagine a better place than a bar on the bay harborside. We have eaten lunch here before but today I am reviewing the bar or more importantly the view. We were visiting for the day as we love Sarasota and arrived late in the afternoon. Come early to get a close... More

My wife was looking for a Florida style restaurant to eat at before we went to the New Years festival downtown Sarasota. This place had outside eating by water where the kids could get up and walk around and not bother anybody. It's not a sit down and order place, you go in side to order than wait for your... More

We ate lunch here, outside, by the water, and could hear the live music playing indoors perfectly. Pub food, beer in plastic cups, fabulous. Casual and a treat to eat under the palm trees.

Realize that when you go to O'Leary's it is not for the food which is basic bar food with no particular flair. But the bartenders and the view make this a place you have to go to in Sarasota

The ambiance was awesome and they have live entertainment. I give this place a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10 for the setting. Now, the food is a different story...it wasnt bad food, just very boring and it wouldn't take much effort to make it more exciting. We sat outside at one of the many picnic tables next... More

just spent the night in the ER with my husband who has door poisoning from the sandwich. Told a friend of mine who said he had food poisoning from them once and refuses to eat there anymore. If you go, don't eat the food, it's not worth it.

Although not on one of the Gulf beaches, this tiki bar and grill has the same ambiance. Good eating and drinks under roof just a few feet from Sarasota Bay. Great place for a walk (dogs allowed) over to the nearby dolphin fountain, playground and marina. Good parking is a short walk away. Boat docking and water sports available on... More

Gret place to go for drinks. Right on the Intercoastal. Prices are reasonable. Food is mainly sandwiches, and sides. All in all, a good place to go. Downtown location next to Marina Jack's
