A wonderful Florida seafood house.

A fun fish house. We live nearby and go frequently for the Gumbo, seafood boils and casual atmosphere. Very busy during season, so be prepared to wait during happy/dinner hour.

Went here on May 30. We have been coming here for 12 years on our annual trips to Sarasota and it is always a good decision. The kids love the casual, nautical environment, and the adults appreciate the many fresh fish menu options. I have loved the raw oysters, blackened grouper, fried smelt, and of course the island drinks! This... More

I have had many grouper sandwiches with fries and each time one was about the same as the other. This was not the case at "The Creek." We ordered the grouper sandwich, fried, with french fries. We were provided with several different sauces including Gator Sauce which added some mild heat. This sandwich was the best ever. The breading was... More

This is one of our favorite places to go when we are in town. We love the variety of seafood on the menu - it is always fresh and service has never let us down. This year we went for my birthday and my husband ordered the Shrimp Jambalaya, I had the freid shrimp and my daughter had the Scallop/lobster... More

Our family of five came here for dinner while on vacation in Siesta Key. Food was good, service was excellent. Friendly, fast, knowledgable and efficient. Fun atmosphere. Only negative was the price difference between online menu and at the restaurant - definite price increase!! I don't like that, either dishonest or bait and switch.

The seafood was terrific. My wife had the Tilapia Fish Tacos and loved them, although she would have preferred soft, flour tortillas instead of crisp, corn tortillas. I had the Grouper Sandwich that was terrific. This is a delightful find on the water in Phillipi Creek.
