First of all let me say although my reviews indicate my Texas roots...40 yrs.+, initially I was born and brought up in Connecticut so I think I can review Clam Chowder.

Captain Curtis's is a must when we are staying on Siesta Key! The food and drink is always good, and the wait staff is very friendly!

On a recent trip to Siesta Key we decided to try this spot,read reviews and thought it would be OK, but we made a poor choice. Tile fish sandwich cold,burger ordinary, and waitress couldn't wait to slap the check on the table. Won't be recommending this eatery to my friends.
