Top 10 Reasons You Should Eat Here

Good menu, difficult to park, nice dishes although a little pricey. Stopped going there because of the limited parking

Get here early or you will have a wait. Owen's Fish Camp is very popular! It is not a huge restaurant so it has a very intimate feel. The entrance is under a wonderful old Banyan tree with life like sculpture of any Old Salty Dog! The screen porch is my favorite spot to eat. It just has a very... More

If you like good food, friendly service, a restaurant with character, and celebrity watching you will LOVE Owen's Fish Camp. The" Fish and Chips" are to die for, the servers are top of the line and if you look around the room you will probably catch a glimpse of Tommy Smothers or Jerry Springer enjoying a meal. Order a drink... More

One of the best kept secrets in Sarasota is Owen's Fish Camp. Tucked away on Burns Ct. next to the Burns Court Cinema, parking onsite is tight, but plenty of on street parking is just around the corner. Always bustling, reservations are ONLY accepted for parties of 6. Table turnover is steady, and there's plenty of seating out back on... More

Eclectic atmosphere and awesome food. Save your money for this meal - it's not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for here. The food is INCREDIBLE! If you're a bit adventurous and at least 21, try the oyster shooters. I loved it! Spicy, but good and fun! If you want to relax out back, they have a porch swing... More

Everything seafood in the coolest of atmosphere. Having to wait for a table is a plus. Go through restaurant and sit in fish camp area with a cold beverage. Live music common while you sit in lawn chair and relax.
