Have been coming here my whole life and every year it's even better! Great food, amazing atmosphere, friendly service! There's a bar, a tiki hut, a gift shop, and other fun shopping surrounding it. I always have a great time with quick service! Try a Crabby Red and some oysters on the half she'll!

I just about grew up on midnight pass in siesta key and this has always been a go to spot for us. The food is always amazing and the chowder can't be beat! If they aren't open I would also recommend getting a "surfer" from Anna's sand which shop! Either way you won't be disappointed!

We went in for the Clam Chowder and it was very good. Everything else was just so so. We had grouper entrees and they were just okay.

We eat here each time we are at Siesta Key...so we've been here 4-5 times on visits. Normally it's a good meal in a nice atmosphere at a reasonable price. This trip, it fell short of expectations. We had 2 grouper baskets, gator bites and a kids chicken meal. The food was okay, but not as good as previous trips.... More

Great beach restaurant property close to Crescent Beach condos. Very convenient and always counted on to deliver a value lunch. Grouper and snapper sandwiches were great. Keep it up!!!!

This was the very best clam chowder I've ever had. Was so good we ate here twice already on our vacation. Would recommend to everyone.

Their chowder is worth the trip to this long-standing restaurant. I'd get a bowl rather than a cup, it's that good. However, the rest of the food is just regular fried seafood with nothing outstanding. This is definitely a family restaurant with no attempt at a date-night atmosphere.

The seasonings on their fish make you want to come back for more. We always get the clam chowder!! They won a contest in Rhode Island as the best chowder in the country and we agree. I usually make the chowder my meal. Full of clams, rich broth and a few potatoes. Can't go wrong at Captain Curt's.
