No pun intended, but I return to "sailors return" because I like view while sitting outside. Lovely view of harbor under a covered porch, although the chairs leave a lot to be desired...maybe I am too short. We ordered a special Taco bowl salad with blackened shrimp which turned out to be acceptable, although shrimp was far from blackened. Our... More

You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful setting for dinner, drinks or dancing to the music at Sailors Return. With stunning views to the west over the boats in the marina and the St. Lucie River, you will not be disappointed. A varied and consistently good menu will not disappoint you. Friendly folks and an attentive staff... More

This restaurant has it all--great food, great location, great drink selection and wait staff that are not only efficient, but fun! A popular go-to place for happy hour. The fried green tomato appetizer is delicious and so much more than just fried green tomatoes. Sit outside and enjoy Florida weather, live music and an occasional family of dolphin swimming between... More

This place is classy and beautifully decorated. The food is excellent and the staff is very accommodating. We had a summer menu for 21.95 that included 3 courses. Add it to your list.

I really like the food here......very good seafood. Valet parking is a plus as well. Sit on the South deck to avoid cigarette smoke. Service has been average. On one occasion, the waitress simply did not want to be there and her performance and body language showed it. I would recommend but if service goes downhill, I would discuss with... More

Very nice atmosphere with view of marina. Dinners are excellent, lamb and Filet Mignon entrees are extremely good with excellent quantity and quality for the price.

We have been to Sailor's Return several times and there is a reason we always return. The location and view are great, especially at sunset and the food is consistently great. It can be a little pricey depending on what you order (and drinks!) but always worth the experience in my opinion.

Went here the other night with a friend and had great scallops! They were big, juicy and there were 6 of them along with some really great spinach. Totally full by the time I finished. Great location, nice valet service (especially since it was raining) and good food service.

Appetizers are awesome and priced better than the entrees. Entrees are great but you are definitely paying for the atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and always attentive. The bands are usually pretty good and although it's lively, tends to be an older crowd-as is most of Stuart.
