This place is first class. We have been there for both lunch and dinner several times and are never disappointed. Service is top, top notch. Price ranges from a nice lunch to an expensive dinner out. There is a lower outdoor level for everything from I have been out on the water all day to I want to eat outside on this nice night. Inside is beach business casual. I have never left without a smile on my face and never thought it wasn't worth the money spent. Go ... you'll love it.

Dry Dock is a place we go every year when we vacation on Longboat Key. We always request to sit outside (which is newly renovated) and have a view of the water and the docked boats. I have a gluten allergy, and they are always very accommodating to my needs. I get their fish tacos which are absolutely delicious! They have great cocktails too. My daughter loves to look for fish by the boats while we wait for our table, which helps the wait time be more manageable! Such a fun, family friendly restaurant!

Dry Dock has an excellent menu with wonderful selections. I've had the crab cakes and the shrimp pasta, both of which were amazing!! They also have a wide selection of beers and drinks. Make a reservation to sit in the lower level outside on Sarasota Bay.
