Popped in for a snack. Enjoyed cocktail however beer not great. Buffalo wings were very tasty - took the hot option and they were... Clam chowder as good as on the pier in San Fran.

Good place to stop of lunch after the aquarium but don't expect much from the food. Worth trying a salty dog once but probably would never get it again. Sitting outside on the water is great but you can do that almost anywhere in Sarasota.

Very disappointed on our stop. 3 of us order the crabby cakes. They were minced meat (did not taste like crab, but it might have been fish). They were overcooked. 1 person ordered tilapia and it was average, at best.

Service was OK. The food was served hot.

We had lunch here with family after visiting Mote Aquarium. Overall it was a wasted $80 for 4 adults and a kid.
Two had the specials of lobster roll and tuna egg rolls,one had mussels and one black grouper sandwich.
The 2 specials were very small and looked nothing like the pictures on the menu. The mussels sounded delicious with garlic butter and flatbread but tasted bland and were served with a few pieces of dry French stick...no flatbread in sight!
Coffee is only served in paper cups...yuk!
The kids plate is a frisbee which they can keep.
The views are good but we left hungry and feeling cheated.

Needing food and a place out of the thunderstorm we found Old Salty Dog by accident. The food was good but not exceptional, the service was very good and we enjoyed the experience.
