I have been here many times over the years and it always stays consistent and excellent quality. One of THE BEST Grouper sandwiches in Florida! Great atmosphere and view of Sarasota Bay!

Came for dinner and ate upstairs. Nice views of the water. Service was a little slow but, the food was delicious. Filet was cooked just right. Nice wine selections. Lobster mac and cheese was just ok but, the cesar salad was perfect.

We've eaten here a number of times, both inside and out, as well as casual and semi-formal. The food has always been pretty good, however, it does seem to take a while for it to reach your table. Good drink menu, nice selection of beers,...More

Nice casual place on the water (it is a marina, after all). Accommodating to individual food preferences and the buffalo chicken was outstanding. Staff friendly and helpful; important as we were traveling with someone with food allergies. Can’t speak for the dinners but lunch was...More
