Great casual dining. We ate here twice during vacation. Great burgers. Great dogs. It would be fun to go back without the kids, and hang out at the bar. Just saying.

Ditto. The siesta key town is a very pleasant place. Food was good. The range of food is great. Then food was good.

Went for a late dinner on a Thursday night and there was seating available on the open deck area. Food was great and price was not bad. Preschooler loved the Frisbee plate he got to keep. Margarita was not the best but not the worst we have ever had. Only downside was that they allow dogs -- which is not... More

Our hungry crew of 2 adults and 4 college kids ended up here one evening recently. Based on atmosphere, our expectations were not high for the quality of the food but we were pleasantly surprised. Our party was picky - one vegetarian, two gluten-free, one no seafood. There was something for everyone and it was well-prepared and flavorful. The waiter... More

We dined here twice as a family, and the first time was not so bad (March 2013), but one year later, things really were dreadful. The service was abysmal at best, waiter never even told us his name or cracked a smile, basically tossed menus on the table and took off. Took forever to take our order, and when the... More

This is one of our "must stop" restaurants when we are in Sarasota. The peel and eat shrimp, conch fritters, and grouper are my favorites. Consistently good. Good key lime pie too. And the view of the bay is really nice. People like to come to this point to watch the sunset too. Wear as casual as you can imagine... More

We read about this restaurant in multiple magazines while visiting Sarasota and siesta key... Despite the marginal reviews, we decided to give it a try... Most disappointing meal of our stay. Hostess was attentive and helpful and that's the only positive I can mention. Our waitress was forgetful, messed up our food order, forgot items that were requested, etc... On... More

I have been here for lunch many times but our group of 8 tried dinner and loved it. Try their dog if you have never been there, but our group loved their snow crab special, fish and chips, and fried shrimp too.

I don't care if this place has been on man vs food. I'd you like eating grease and nitrates, by all means, eat here. Complain to your cardiologist while he giving you angioplasty. One good thing. They serve their dogs on a frisbee. The dog loves chasing that frisbee.
