There is a great selection off the menu. Be prepared to wait because on a Friday and Saturday dinner hours, it's packed, so it goes to show you - the food is delicious. My husband was so excited when asking the waiter where they get their fish. The waiter happily explained - right from the Florida waters & that's where... More

We found out about this place on our last visit to Siesta Key and now we want to eat here a few times a week. The food is very fresh and tasty. They serve Mullet Spread with crackers before your meal and it is delicious. They also have a fresh fish market where you can purchase fish to cook yourself.... More

Selections were plentiful and all of the fish our group of four ordered was deliciously prepared. Our server was friendly and helpful. It is very casual but you can not find fresher fish. Look forward to going back and to going to the Fish Market which is inside the restaurant.

We had a party of 6 for dinner with reservations. We were seated promptly outside on the deck(which faces the parking lot) and waitress was quick to get drink orders. Several folks had cocktails, including myself (gin and tonic) and the drinks were very weak-little gin and lots of tonic. Most of the group ordered the advertised as "fresh" stone... More

Parking at Walt's leaves a LOT to be desired - it's located on a highway and can be quite tricky to get a spot. Walt's is a local institution, in business for many decades. Our party of 3 put in for "first available"(inside or outside in the covered bar area) on a busy Friday night that was also quite chilly.... More

Went here with my family, party of nine. Had to wait 15 minutes tops. Our waitress was excellent and the food was a nice surprise. Everyone enjoyed their selection from the vast menu. Not sure what happened to the parties that reviewed before me, but we will definitely come back. I had the blackened grouper tacos and YUM ! Jim... More

We spent a wonderful day on the beach and thought fish and chips would be a good way to finish the day. The restaurant also contains an area for fresh fish that you can take home to cook. Our server was sweet; however the fish, chips, and coleslaw were not good. The lightly breaded fish had no flavour and this... More

I will begin by saying I base a lot of my vacation go-to decisions by reading Trip Advisor...this restaurant had some mixed reviews and last night my husband and I went to a place based on reviews and we were very disappointed - so I went in with this one a bit hesitant; however, if you are Thinking about going...
