Everything you want in a tiki bar. Buffett music live, harbor views, cold beer, and a good waterfront menu.

Mahi Mahi was bland, Mango Salsa had no flavor, Mountain Dew was watered down. Customer service was okay, not very friendly. Curly Fries were flavorful though

Good food. Location is nice, with seating right by the water. You order your food like fast food style and then picnic style seating. Located around water and boats and a small park nearby.

We loved the atmosphere and the food. The view is great and you can eat outside on the bay. We tried the mahi fish tacos and grilled cod.

O’Leary’s or as we call it the Tikii Bar, is one of my favorite places in Sarasota. Having a drink right on the water is the best way to completely unwind. They are following the 6 ft distance mandate so I felt completely comfortable!

Great setting, good food! We sat with our feet in the sand and thoroughly enjoyed the frozen drinks. The onion rings were a highlight for me, too!

Met some family from up north. Very casual to sit at a picnic table on the beach. Food was good and beer was cold. The best parts were that we were able to sit and talk and not feel rushed to leave for the table....More

With their perfect setting right on Sarasota Bay, you definitely go to O'Leary's for a great "toes in the sand" experience. As for the food, it's just basic bar food. I had the sausage sandwich and the meat just didn't taste very good. My wife's...More

parking is close, but you will walk about 100 yards...could get busy, as parking is shared by the other businesses out there.
