“Great Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Tucked away on the 3rd floor of a marina before entering Casey Key is a hidden gem of a new restaurant. The food is not just plentiful but outstanding and reasonably priced. The servers greet you in good spirits and are quick to make reccomendations. The owners are on site and friendly, coming by to laugh and check on you throughout the meal. This is a small restaurant with a downstairs bar but it overlooks the marina and the sunsets are beautiful. We have lived here for years and found this place quite by accident and have been back twice so far in a week. The Clam Chowder is out of this world and the Pulled Pork Sandwich is phenominal. The fish is fresh and well seasoned and portions are generous. We have watched people at other tables fall in love with the Creme Brule have been too full to try it. As a side note they also have the best french fries in Sarasota. We will be making this place our new hang out and hope to see new faces there so they get busier and stick around. The only downside is the kitchen does seem to get overwhelmed when they are full so if you are in a rush don't go during peak hours.

“the reserved tables take over the place -”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Went here on a Sunday evening & were told the wait would be 20 min. or less since we had no reservation. A party of 5 came in & their reservation had not been recorded. People were seated ahead of us based on who were frequent customers! After 40 min.of waiting & many conversations with the hostess/waitress we left. The kitchen did not seem to be able to keep up with the orders & the wait escalated from 20 min. to an hour within a 5 min. time period. They have to get their act together!

“Great fish tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We stopped in to check out the bar and restaurant. We only went to the bar and our meals were good! Fish tacos are some of the best I have had in the Sarasota area! Nice bartenders and we will definitely go back!

“Bimini Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Have had dinner in the bar several times in the past 2 months. Have also had dinner in the restaurant. No matter where you eat the food is always excellent. The service in the bar is totally on point. The bartenders and manager seem to know what you need before you ever have to ask for it. They are on top of their game. You will definitely see me there often.

“One of my favorite restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The service was excellent. The food was very good and the presentation was fantastic.
I will be there at least once a week from now on. I'll have to try everything on the menu.
The view is fabulous and the sunset is remarkable.
