We were a group of seven so we had an opportunity to try a variety of dishes.

We started with the hot crab & artichoke dip as well as the gorgonzola wontons. The dip was divine and the chips that came with it were light and flavorful. The waitress said they were cooked in-house. I didn't try the gormonzola wontons, not being a gorgonzola lover but my share was quickly eaten by my table mates.

The crab cakes were filled with crab. The bouillabaisse was fresh and flavorful. The fried shrimp basket was made in house, not the pre-made frozen kind, with large flavorful shrimp. I had the seared ahi tuna which was cooked perfectly and not overdone. The coconut shrimp came without the sauce but the waitress explained that the chef was new and returned quickly with the sauce.

Our group all agreed that this was a place we would return to.

Tucked away on the 3rd floor of a marina before entering Casey Key is a hidden gem of a new restaurant. The food is not just plentiful but outstanding and reasonably priced. The servers greet you in good spirits and are quick to make reccomendations. The owners are on site and friendly, coming by to laugh and check on you throughout the meal. This is a small restaurant with a downstairs bar but it overlooks the marina and the sunsets are beautiful. We have lived here for years and found this place quite by accident and have been back twice so far in a week. The Clam Chowder is out of this world and the Pulled Pork Sandwich is phenominal. The fish is fresh and well seasoned and portions are generous. We have watched people at other tables fall in love with the Creme Brule have been too full to try it. As a side note they also have the best french fries in Sarasota. We will be making this place our new hang out and hope to see new faces there so they get busier and stick around. The only downside is the kitchen does seem to get overwhelmed when they are full so if you are in a rush don't go during peak hours.

Went here on a Sunday evening & were told the wait would be 20 min. or less since we had no reservation. A party of 5 came in & their reservation had not been recorded. People were seated ahead of us based on who were frequent customers! After 40 min.of waiting & many conversations with the hostess/waitress we left. The kitchen did not seem to be able to keep up with the orders & the wait escalated from 20 min. to an hour within a 5 min. time period. They have to get their act together!

We stopped in to check out the bar and restaurant. We only went to the bar and our meals were good! Fish tacos are some of the best I have had in the Sarasota area! Nice bartenders and we will definitely go back!

Have had dinner in the bar several times in the past 2 months. Have also had dinner in the restaurant. No matter where you eat the food is always excellent. The service in the bar is totally on point. The bartenders and manager seem to know what you need before you ever have to ask for it. They are on top of their game. You will definitely see me there often.
