Great local restaurant with wonderful 70's music playing. The lobster was fantastic as well as the sides- garlic, parmesan green beans and red potatoes. Outdoor patio as a bar and live music. Fun, fun place!

This hidden gem is in the Burns Court area just south of downtown. A funky, friendly atmosphere with great food and periodic entertainment in the courtyard. I had some great gumbo and then an interesting jambalaya, and the rest of our party had tasty fish entrees. Some good local craft beers are on tap and lots of wine by the... More

This hidden gem is worth the wait. I set out for a seafood place away from the tourist attractions. My quest was to find -the best food, that the locals or snowbirds know about. The friend I traveled with has a very special kinship with a child named Owen. So I took that as an omen - we should eat... More

This place is super cool, with a big great old tree- it really feels like a camp- but with excellent food. Tuesday nights they have live music out back- lots of locals go there. Great service- I go there often!

Very popular and very rustic seafood restaurant in downtown Sarasota. Food ranges from good to excellent depending on dishes ordered. Portions are quite large. Service is friendly and excellent. The only problem is its popularity versus no reservation policy. If you don't want to spend an excessive amount of time waiting for a table, you have to get there before... More

My wife and I dined here for dinner while on vacation. The place is very funky and fun. It is also located in a interesting area of town. The outdoor area does look like an old fish camp. We had a very good meal. My wife and I both had the grilled grouper which was good. They have wine or... More

Met business colleagues here for dinner. The food was great, the atmosphere is super fun, and the service was incredible. I highly recommend this place. It probably wouldn't be great for large groups and parking can be tricky.

Noisy and crowded, but the food and service are great. Get there early or you won't get a table. We had the jambalaya and it was great comfort food on a cool day.

Thank Rob B
