If you are looking for a VERY casual Key West style atmosphere with the fine dining of a 5 star award winning restaurant this is the place. The food is phenomenal and they have something for everyone. We love this place.

We've been going to the "Fish Camp" for the past three years, learning the best time to go to avoid lengthy wait times is avoiding "snow bird season." However, that aside the laid back atmosphere, service and food is great. From chowder to crab to jambalaya pasta etc., we have have had consistently good dinners here. Also, it's convenient should...

This place has great food and atmosphere(rustic and low key), only reason not to give it 5 stars is it's usually very crowded and long waits and a bit expensiive. And being crowded it's usually loud, if you have just a few people you can sometimes get in to the high tops or small bar area without much wait. So... More

I'm Not the biggest fish eater, but I love the fish here. It's always fresh and prepared in a multiple of ways. They feature what I would call southern casual cooking but with a very sophisticated flare. Kinda down home,with home being a large metropolitan city. Serving is good, food to table a bit slow, being it's always prepared to... More

No liquor, only beer & wine. I had the steak. Very tough & tasted rotten, like it was decaying...and it actually smelled like vomit. My daughter had a shrimp dish, I could smell the "fishiness" of the not so fresh shrimp from across the table, It was awful. Cool atmosphere. The decorations gave it a feeling chaos. Everyone one else... More

That is my friend'a favorite made up word and it accurately describes Owens. It is a little shack off the beaten path and it feels like going to your crazy uncles for dinner. Lots of stuff everywhere! A hanging swing on the porch and you feel like home The food is simply amazing. The peel and eat shrimp, fried green... More

On vacation in Siesta Key and decided to try Owen's for dinner on Wednesday night. We were so surprised to find this charming and unique setting close to downtown Sarasota. We were welcomed and seated within 10 minutes. Our server Brittany was delightful. She gave us suggestions and really took the time to ensure we were enjoying our experience. The... More

As we turned down Burns Ct we thought we were on the wrong street because most of the buildings were dark. Owen's was the exception with plenty of guests and lively music playing. We had pan seared grouper and cheesy grits that were worth every calorie! definitely going back.

Funky beach shack serving excellent food. I knew it would be great as I was taken by locals. Owen's has a great menu and super service. Will definitely return next trip.
