We were there in early November. Between seasons. The whole town was very quiet, This restaurant was packed! We waited almost... 10 minutes! With a couple of beers, sitting outside, under the stars. Great vibe! Good food (interesting menu!) fast, friendly service, great casual dining! Wouldn't hesitate to return. A little expensive perhaps, but totally worth it.

This Is our favorite restaurant in Sarasota.. Love the food. It's casual and staff is great. Never have to wait long once you are seated, we have several favorites but my husband loves the mussels with pasta.

This was a cool place to eat and a fun atmosphere in the "backyard" (fish camp). The grandkids enjoyed the tire swing and watching the resident cat. The fish of the day was delicious and the service was very fast. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Nothing to dislike, in a great location, fish very fresh, prepared to order, pleasant waitress, although crowded on a Saturday night the food arrived at our table without a long wait. I would return the next time I visit Sarasota.

Not the easiest place to find but well worth the search. Lots of parking near by if you can't fit into their tiny lot. They take reservations for 6+ otherwise come early or later evening if you can't reserve. Ambience is very unique arrive early. Enjoy a drink in the back yard by the fire sitting on a selection of...

We had Maryland spiced shrimp for an app, fish camp basket(oysters, shrimp, fish, crab, FF and coleslaw) And jambalaya. They serve beer and wine. We enjoyed a nice draft pale ale. Everything was...

Casual dining in a busy, local favorite. Located on a side street with not a lot of parking available. You wonder where are all these people parking? The place is crammed. But the food is really good. I love the grits, the oysters are large and fresh, and the prawns yummy! We have been coming to Sarasota for years and... More

I took my parents to Owen's Fish Camp on their first night in Sarasota. The atmosphere was great and the food was good. It's a must try restaurant for both residents of the Sarasota area and vacationers.

Great atmosphere reminiscent of old Southern fish camps. Love the fried catfish, grits and collard greens. Owen's is a great local spot with a unique, funky vibe. Located in one of Sarasota's unique areas, Burns Court. If you like special little local spots, give it a try.
