Restaurant recommendations

Hello, arriving Sunday aug 5 for 7 nights at Sand Cay.. We will probably cook most dinners, but looking for recommendations for a couple nights eating out. Also, is there somewhere close to purchase fresh seafood? Thanks!

If you're looking for seafood in a restaurant, close by would by Lazy Lobster -- it's popular and very good. For a great gourmet meal, go to Harry's Continental Kitchens, also not far away; they also have a store across the street from the restaurant where some of their prepared dishes can be bought frozen and then you can take them home and cook them in your unit.

For fresh fish, I'd drive up to Anna Maria and then over to Cortez and Star Fish. The local boats dock there and unload their fresh catches daily.

Also consider Mar Vista and Chart House, both have great views/ambiance. Dry Dock has very good, consistent, and reasonably priced seafood. And don't forget that you can walk next door from your condo to the Hilton for lunch.
