Coupled with the Burns Court Theater and others in downtown Sarasota- great food, don't miss the collard greens, New Emgland clam chowder and Fish Camp salad. It's always a wait but a fun waiting area.

I'm not one who likes to wait for a table but this place is so stinkin' adorable I was very content and entertained. When I finally tasted my first morsel of grilled red snapper I was already planning my next trip! You have got to go!

Owen's is set on a small side street that reminds me of the campground on Martha's Vineyard. It has an old time, laid back atmosphere but with great fresh fish, oysters, mussels, a decent wine list and some very interesting beers. Everything I had -- the smoked fish appetizers, shrimp and grits, oysters rockefeller were all delicious and made for a fun evening for my group of 7. Other pluses: It has a backyard where you can hang out and wait for your table and its connected to a cool art gallery where you can browse post dinner. Also, just down the street from the artsy theatre.

As you enter you would think you're are dining somewhere in the Carribean. The place is fun, the food is good, and we have been there several times the clam bake was very good and worth the try
