Stopped in here to get some breakfast but it was horrible. The lady who waited on us was rude and the place looked horrible. The business sits on the bay and you would think it would be a great place for a halfway decent restaurant, but it was terrible. We did not eat any of our food as it was... More

Now this is a great place with a view of the water. The bartender's....Paul,Jason,Tracy,Katie are awesome. Their friendly as hell and fun to talk with if they have time. The best place for a sunset is there with a drink in you hand.

Kids, you can't get much more beach ambience! And beach dining in Sarasota is rare! It's right downtown, under a not-so-common Tiki roof and makes you feel like you're on vacation. Standard burger stuff. Don't get this place confused with the Ritz but go.

A fun, casual place to go as a couple or a family. There's almost always live music which is enjoyable. Place your order at the counter and you're given a buzzer to pick up when ready. Basics like hamburgers or fried shrimp and fries are available, as well as other interesting choices. I had blackened, grilled mahi-mahi with mango salsa,... More

Nice casual place and easy with kids, you put in your order at a counter and you carry a buzzer to pick it up when it is done. Beautiful outside tables and view of the waterfront. The fellow singing and playing the guitar was very good and it was easy listening while we were eating. I didn't think there was... More

Absolutely fantastic bartenders, great location and laid back vibe. Go to the bar for adult beverages and adult company, or sit on the benches for more of a family oriented experience. No table service, so you order from the little shop or from the bartenders. You can not beat the ambiance, it feels like you are in the middle of... More

Good food and drinks for certain. The best bartenders in Florida. The view is incredible if you enjoy Sarasota Bay, boats anchored and Dolphins swimming around.

This is a very casual bar-food setting, with the emphasis on the view!! NOBODY comes here for the food...It is very AVERAGE and that's being kind !!! It's all about the view and the "Key West" island type atmosphere...You order your food, pick it up and choose a picnic style table right on the bay...Fantastic place to watch the sunset...Burgers...

Do not miss O'Leary's Tiki Bar. It is at Marina Jack's right on the water with a beach. A fun place with great food and live music every night. They even accommodated my wife's seafood allergy. The Mgr. cooked my wife's burger himself and brought it to our table. Everyone of the staff members were very friendly and did everything... More

It is a great spot to sit and have a drink, especially at sunset. The food is awful though. We had a mahi sandwich, which was cooked to the consistency of leather and tasted a bit old. The bread was straight out of the fridge, not toasted, and still cold. The curly fried were some kind of reconstituted potato product.... More
