Great and relaxing venue next door to Burns Court Cinema. Casual dining at its finest with excellent food, good service and a terrific variety of seafood and other selections...... We decided to grab a "quick bite" before the movie and were happy we did.

We knew it would be good night when our server sat us. We can't say enough good things about her. She made us feel right at home, was incredibly friendly and had a great sense of humor. We had appetizers of mussels with leek broth and liver pate with preserves. For dinner the crispy chicken and naked blackened fish and... More

While visiting Sarasota my husband and I were in the mood for some fresh seafood and this place came highly recommended from other travelers. It is located in an old house, quite quaint, with both inside and outside dining. We chose inside, which is decorated in old fishing memorabilia, due to the rainy weather. All the staff were so friendly,... More

For an absolutely fun dining experience at decent prices in downtown Sarasota, FL, Owen's Fish Camp is the spot. Especially if you're going to the Burns Court movies next door. It's always full of lively folks just having lunch or dinner or celebrating notable events. In any case, it's a joyful place to eat.

I went with my mom and a friend and loved it. Honestly can't remember for sure what I got but I think I ordered a salad. Whatever it was, it was delicious and my mom had the fried shrimp basket and loved it and I can't remember what our friend got either. It was unique because they had this little... More

Last night, my wife and a friend dined at Owen's. The place is kitschy cute and comfortable. My friend had their Texas Prime oysters and said they were great. I had the pan fried lump crab cake and it was full of crab meat. But it was one medium-sized cake with coleslaw for $12. My wife had their version of... More

The worst restaurant experience of my life. My trout was mushy and the nuts in the sauce were old tasting. The manager told me, in fact, my fish was good. I refuted her claim and requested another entree to her dismay. I sat without food for 25 minutes. I finally cancelled my new fish entree, to which we hear a... More

Tired inside and out. The fish was old, but even older was the rancid walnut sauce that was served on what I was told was trout. It was sent back to the kitchen, and while waiting for 35 minutes for another dish, we saw a waitress deeply dig in her hair not once, but three times, and then serve food.... More

This is great casual dining with indoor and outdoor (on porch) tables next Burns Court Cinema in downtown Sarasota. The menu is low country seafood with beer and wine. I especially like the fish tacos - fresh and moist. The fish dishes and boil are the best bet but they also offer some other items. Deserts are great. Go early... More
