It's definitely NOT about the food here, it's ALL about the location and worth it...

This was a tough review as Sailor's Return is typical, high turn, tourist food that disappoints when it could really be amazing if the quality of the dishes reflected the location. I really want to give Sailor's Return a 3 but that wouldn't be right because the location, location, location…the... read more

Four of us ate there twice on our ladies time out vacation. The lunch salad choices were great. For dinner, we especially liked the egg plant stack appetizer and the soft shell crab entree. The view of the dock area was fun with the large boats and small yachts docked. Nice live music during the week night evening.

We went for dinner. The views of the boats and sunset were spectacular and the restaurant's atmosphere was cheery! The food however was average. I ordered the catch of the day and the fish was overcooked so much that it was tough and rubbery when I tried to cut into it! If I went back I would go just for... More

I think they must have borrowed their chef from Dennys. Subpar cooking skills. How difficult is it to SEAR scallops? Half raw, poached scallops is what I got. Sent them back and got rubbery, overcooked scallops STILL not seared. I think they put them in the microwave. At that point I ate them anyway because I was starving. By that... More

Sailor's Return prides itself on providing guests with great food and service along with a unique waterfront dining experience. We do not often receive complaints in regards to the food as detailed in your review, therefore, when we do we take them very seriously. It is not common practice for the kitchen to ever microwave food, especially food sent back... More

We loved our experience at Sailors Return. We arrived a bit early for our reservations so we sat at the outside bar and had an appetizer. Great happy hour prices on drinks and the food was wonderful. Our dinner was also outside and the views from the outdoor tables are fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was... More

This restaurant has both covered and uncovered outdoor seating and indoor seating including a bar area. The view is of a marina with pretty boats. I had a filet with green peppercorn sauce, truffled fries and vegetables. The wine list is limited but cocktails were good and a good value too. My friend had seared scallops and they served four...

Was going to go to Spoto's for a return visit after some time but read 3 terrible reviews in the last week. In checking other restaurants in Stuart this one got some great reviews. They were spot and thanks to those reviewers. The food was delicious but SO much. We tried the Veggie Hummus and the varied bread offering with... More

Great views with very good food. Always have excellent service and the food is very good. Love to sit outside around sunset to see the beautiful scene with the marina and bridge in the forefront. In summer, you are lightly misted and in winter there are heaters for comfort .Lively atmosphere and live music on weekends.

Really terrific dining experience at the marina . Beautiful outdoor seating available as well as indoor . The five of us each had different and equally delicious meal. Service by Tracey was exceptional.

Visited this restaurant with family. Docked the boat and had a great lunch. It is a lively place. The food was great and the service very good. We enjoyed our lunch. The Flat bread was delicious as an appetizer.
