Seriously, they are soooo good! It's worth the wait because you will need to wait here, but no worries, grab a glass of wine and sit in the restaurant's "back yard" in the heart of classic Sarasota. Great atmosphere. Then, the food... Like I said, start with the peanuts, then go for the Lowcountry Boil and top it off with... More

We loved Owen's Fish Camp. The restaurant is cozy and quaint and their food is oh so good my favourite was the Jambalaya which was amazing, the kids loved their shrimp too. What a cute little restaurant and you can take a lot of nice family pictures right in front of the restaurant. A lot of good food at a... More

Unique dining experience, in an almost hidden part of the city. No reservations, arrive early. A Trifecta - great food, atmosphere and service. A must-go every time we visit Sarasota!

This tucked away restaurant is great. The atmosphere is very laid back. The food is extremely fresh. I will obviously return.

Where do you start...service was horrible and very unfriendly. After waiting for over an hour we had our chops ready for some good Florida style seafood. The problem was the menu they had on the front porch turned out to be old and several of the items don't even exist any longer. They should probably throw away all of the... More

The fun and casual dining atmosphere we look for when traveling. Food and service were good (we were there early on a week night) and the extra attention given us by the manager sealed our opinion of the place. Walking distance to our B&B on the bayfront let us sample an extra beer! Will add this to our 'favorite places'... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites in Sarasota. The food is always great and the atmosphere is very fun! We made reservations in advance so our party of 7 did not have to wait very long, but be prepared to wait because this place is always packed! Especially before and after the Burns Court Cinema has movie times. My... More

My favourite stop. This place was recommend ed to us by a local.though we had a wait it was worth it. There was a back yard area with old porch swings and seating to hang around at while you were waiting for a table. There was even a tire swing. The night we were there there was an acoustic performer.... More

Been here several times for special occasions and it's always delicious. The low country boil is a great value for 2 and full of crab, clams, mussels, shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. Come before you are starving though, because you will most likely wait an hour

This place will cost you a pretty penny to eat here! Four of us had shrimp baskets, one fish basket and one steak. A few shrimp, a lot of fries and one small taster of bad cole slaw was way overpriced. The steak was on top of a lot of fries just to make it look a little larger. And... More
