Went to Dry Dock Waterfront Grill in Longboat Key while we were visiting the Siesta Key area. I'm glad that we made the drive over to this restaurant. It was well worth it! The food was absolutely awesome from the appetizers to the entrees. We sat outside and even though it was a warn evening it was pleasant to sit out back and we didn't get hot at all. Our waitress was very nice and everything was spot on. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant if you are near the Longboat Key area and I would definitely return here to eat again!

Really popular, you cannot book in advance, but they give you a caller which gets you away from the bar when your table is ready. Lots of fish and overlooks the bay.

My wife & I always enjoy Dockside. Our red snapper lunch today was enjoyable though not up to par. We mentioned this to our waitress Shamron not as a complaint but to offer a suggestion and were taken aback when Brandon the manager apologized and resolved what wasn't even an issue. It wasn't necessary yet we were very impressed by both of their attentiveness and professionalism. We will be back in 2 weeks with out of town relatives.

We ate at this restaurant based on other's reviews and we are glad we did. We decided to eat outside by the water. It was a beautiful view, the food was fresh, staff was helpful and polite. It was our first time to Longboat Key, and if we ever return, this restaurant will be on our list of places to eat.
