We had a party of 11, and had a variety of seafood meals. I had the crabcakes which were excellent, with a lot of crabmeat. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was average, atmosphere was comfortable and laid back. We enjoyed our visit.

Busy place and parking can be a challenge but the food is good and not overly priced like many places in the area. Stop for lunch or dinner on your way to or from the beach. If looking for some place a little different, this is it but don't expect quiet.

Great food. I had the cheesy jalapeño crab bites and prime rib. Everyone in our party of 5 thought the food was excellent!

Very good seafood, prime rib sandwiches, and crab cake, but the BEST clam chowder ever. Seriously! 👍

Had to give this place another shot, and this time it was delicious! No complaints. The kids each got a frisbee to go with their meals, and the adults just got good quality food. Not too crowded and the staff were friendly and fun.

Live in Sarasota for the winter for too many years to remember, so have got to know many spots to eat. I rate this so so, I think it attracts more tourists then locals. Don't get me wrong, food is good, atmosphere is what you'd expect in a fish/seafood house. Prices are very reasonable, but servings are larger elsewhere. BUT,... More

Great service but may be very crowded, worth the wait and has an outside bar across the parking lot at Sniki Tiki. The chowder is the draw but the seafood is all good. The Mahi Mahi Is great as is all the rest. Place is loud but service is fast and family friendly.

Thank Kim T
