This restaurant is hidden on a residential street and the outside seating overlooks the water. The fish was incredibly fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a wonderful casual meal!

Outdoor dining was very busy, I would imagine when finished , the interior will be the same. Great location, hard to find if not familiar with the area.

Nice super casual outdoor seating on the bay. Beach clothes are fine. Tremendous service & attention. Tropical fruity drinks & cold beer. What else could you want? Snacking on delish appetizers... we'll be back!

We had a delicious watermelon salad and a huge, well-constructed Cobb salad served by a cheerful, efficient server, Lauren. I'll repeat that experience again soon! But what happened to the fish tacos?More

Unfortunately the county nor the city has a defined ordinance regarding doggie dining and we cannot take the chance on one customer putting our health certificate in jeopardy. So sorry because we love dogs!

Description
Enjoy a delicious fresh Florida seafood meal inside the quaint dining room, on the outdoor covered deck or under the ancient Buttonwood Trees overlooking picturesque Sarasota Bay. Farm to fork, gulf to table and pasture to plate. It's waterfront dining with a unique atmosphere. Leave a dollar bill on the wall and a little bit of your heart to find on your return visit. Voted #1 place to Dock and Dine with our own private 14 slip dock. There is no place quite like the Mar Vista for real Florida dining.
