My girlfriend and I vacationed in Sarasota. We stopped into the Boatyard because of its location and water view. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The crab legs were fabulous, as was the shrimp and mussels. We stopped in again before our vacation was over because we liked it so much. Eating out on the deck, watching the sun, set was the perfect end to a wonderful vacation. We will be back to the Boatyard again for sure.

a local restaurant/bar to enjoy some fried Gulf seafood in a pleasant outdoor setting with a view. Bonus was live music (Tommy Doerr)--talented guy who put his own spin on some great covers, but didn't try to overwhelm the patrons.

We just ordered the burgers but they were really good. I would eat here again on our next trip to the area.

It was actually a pretty decent place, but then I found a roach in my salad. If it makes it any better the road was dead. What else can I say.
