Wouldn't think of coming to Siesta Key without a stop at Phillippi Creek!! Excellent foot, comfortable setting and atmosphere! It is always hard to pick from the menu because they have so many delicious dishes!! Can't wait for our next visit!!!

My wife and I stop here for lunch most of the time when we are going to or thru Sarasota around noon. The gumbo is "full of stuff" and the Gator appetizer terrific. This summer my wife has enjoyed the California Fish Fry. They have a wide variety of items to choose from. Nice casual dining overlooking Philippi Creek. Sometimes... More

I've always really liked this location. The food and service are always good. Parking can sometimes be a little Hassel, but not bad.

Their Tuesday night lobster dinner is fantastic. Where can you get a whole lobster and 2 sides for $14.00? The service is efficient and friendly. This was my second visit and the next time I am in Siesta Key, I will return.

I love food but not from here. First and LAST visit! Started off with drinks. 1 of 2 drinks was absolutely horrendous. Sent drink back and drank water instead. Was told she took it off our bill. Waitress Mandy was so slow and yelled at all her customers. I know dead people that move faster. She should have a desk... More

Phillippi Creek is my favorite seafood restaurant in Sarasota. Every time we go to Sarasota I have to go there. The food is good, and the atmosphere has a fun Florida charm. I usually get blacked grouper, with the parsley new potatoes, and hushpuppies. Wish I had some now. Gotta try it.

We had eaten here a couple of years ago when in the Sarasota area. It had been recommended to us by friends. It was great then and now. Our vacationing family of six all like something different. Phillippi Creek accommodates everyone's tastes from pasta to seafood. The food was great as usual, but the waiter was not as attentive as... More

Visited the venue as a second choice after failing to find our first choice. This should have been our first choice all along! A lot larger inside than it looks. Lots of variation on the menu, my wife had a mixed fish-fry while I went for the blackened Mahi-Mahi. Frankly I think my wife made a better choice, she had... More

The grouper sandwich was so good and fresh too, the fries were perfectly done too. The service here is great and quite speedy.

Our last family meal of our two week vacation ended here - we save the best for last! We love the atmosphere, food, and service. Prices are competitive but not cheap. Great specials early in the week, check online. Recommend the fried seafood combination, snow crabs, calamari appetizers, and the grilled chicken, but I have never had a bad meal.
