This place is practically across the street from where we live on the key. Food is good and eating outside on the porch is what we come to Florida for.

We tried the deep fried hotdog...it was ok, although we should've tried the fully loaded one. Had the miui wow wee burger...that was just a strange combination of flavors, not... More

Don't bother with the food here. That is, unless you love deep fried hot dog bites, fries and burgers. They are okay. The rest is best left in the back on the plastic plates. Get a drink - mixed, beer, or wine, enjoy the beachy atmosphere and move on.

North of Siesta Village you will find this nice restaurant with outside seating and a long history of serving great food. We chose to try a grouper reuben here, after seeing it on so many menus, and the fried clams. We were both very happy we chose to try the grouper reuben here! Both were excellent. Service was good and... More

First time dining here. Hubby had the loaded dog. I had the chicken dinner and a margarita. Food was a bit pricey, especially considering the quality. My dinner was pretty much flavorless - I took it home and with a little help from Old El Paso, turned it into chicken tacos for lunch the next day. The margarita was also... More

Many TV's and all showing a different sporting event. Food is very good - regular to fancy pub food. Priced right. Outdoor eating as well as indoor.

This was our first dinner stop on Siesta Key. Our server was so sweet and smiley. She was excellent! My husband ordered a burger which was perfectly cooked and delicious! I opted for the dog bites which are lightly breaded and fried mini hot dogs. They were great and came with a mustard/mayo/horseradish sauce we both loved! There was plenty... More

We walked across the street from the Mote Aquarium, so it was a handy place to eat when visiting the aquarium. The atmosphere is nice, especially sitting on the deck outside. Our service was just ok. Our food was ok. My broiled grouper sandwich was large enough, but very messy to eat. And lacking somewhat in flavor without a nice... More
