Food was quite good with a nice atmosphere until you step out back where it was like stepping into another world! LOVE the backyard with comfy, eclectic seating and live music, I believe Tues-Sat. Our son and many others had a blast swinging on an old fashioned tire swing right by the stage. We will be back!

Three of us had the grouper dinner. Two were blackened and one was baked. We all had different sides and everything was excellent. Service was very good and and our waitress helped make our evening enjoyable. The total bill with 3 beers came to $119 plus tip. Very reasonable for what was presented to us.

The service is speedy, attentive & friendly but the food is what you must come here for - it is excellent. We had clam chowder to start which was exquisite, if an assault on the... More

Found this place by accident but what a great find. The place is really nice and the food is fantastic! I enjoyed the entire experience. The lobster sandwich is a 10+

Despite having spent a great deal of time in Sarasota over the years, this was our first visit to Owen's. It will not be our last. We are already planning to bring the rest of the family on our next trip. It is such a unique place. While they don't take reservations so you have to wait (we waited about... More

The ambience is nice, but it is really noisy especially when it is full of people. Prices are high and choice is not great. Inside music merges with outside ones creating an indistinguishable rumour.
