I love this place. Located in Bayfront Park and Marina. Cheap and cheerful, live music , tables on the sand, best curly fries ever. Self-service. Big screen TV so you don't miss your sports. Sarasota's a very pup-friendly place and (as at many outdoor venues)...More

Came here and sat at the tiki bar and had beers. Friendly staff and great view of harbor. Food was average, at best. Fish tacos were dry and chewy...... sour cream drizzle and salsa was uninspired. Swiss, mushroom burger was also over cooked and dry....More

This is our new go to place on Fridays. Great crowd for people watchers. Parking is difficult. Dog friendly. More picnic tables are needed. Good bartenders working in a crummy set up at the bar with limited seating.

parking is close, but you will walk about 100 yards...could get busy, as parking is shared by the other businesses out there.
