Great seafood except the coconut shrimp had an off taste. Would not recommend that. Salad looked awesome and tasted just as good. Kabobs and stuffed flounder great. Hush puppies were great dipped in the dressing. Felt a little rushed at the end though

Perfect for families, couples or friends. Good food, in a T-Shirt & shorts casual dining restaurant. We visit Sarasota regularly, and I've been eating here for 30 years. Never had a disappointing meal yet. Great value.

What a great little waterside restaurant. We had the crab cakes and coconut shrimp. The real deal. Beautiful and light. Full of flavor. A little pricey but worth it if you are looking for quality over quantity. Great and friendly service.

Took 3 generations of women out for the matriarch's birthday. She used to work in the service industry, so expectations are usually high. Everything was fantastic! She enjoyed the jumbo shrimp, potatoes, the drink our server recommended to her, and she and her granddaughter loved the brownie/ice cream dessert. I devoured the best Mahi I've ever had and enjoyed the... More

This Sarasota classic has been around since before our city was a destination on the gulf. Apparently, it started as a restaurant with no AC! A place I've been coming to for over 20 years, I am impressed with how they keep up with the times (I had fresh wahoo ceviche cones) yet still retain their old Florida vibe. Lobster... More

We have talked about coming here but we're never in the area. Well today we were. They have a huge menu. Alot to choose from. We both had sandwiches and a few beers. I have to say their blue crab salad is extremely tasty. I would recommend this place to anyone...

Also had gumbo which was labeled as spicy however had... More

Perfectly fried. No heavy batter. Lightly done and served to perfection. HOWEVER- please improve your hush puppies . Little bigger-little lighter. Add some Orion and buttermilk . Lighter on frying time.,otherwise everything is done right! Eaten there 9 times on 4 trips and next year will eat there again! Great prices for the food served. Servers are awesome. Denny was...
