The outside deck at Mar Vista is a really lovely experience. We have been many times and if there's room, we like to sit under the trees looking out at the water. The food is good, it's reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly....More

We arrived at 11:00 when the restaurant opened. Beautiful day on the water, lots of slips to dock. Food was fantastic, coconut shrimp salad, drinks, service was great! 5 adults and 4 children. Kids played at the water's edge, we ate out under the trees!More

We were seated under twinkling trees, by the water, gorgeous setting. The hostess who seated us was lovely, our server was very pleasant. I had a Greek salad which was good, my friend had the grouper sandwich, the fish portion was tiny and over cooked....More

The name tells almost all you need to know. Restaurant and Pub on the water. Mar Vista has an absolutely charming beachfront seating area shaded by an ancient banyan tree.The rest of the place is a pretty generic outdoor covered deck area with plastic chairs.I...More

We had friends visiting and went to the beach for the day. Weren't dressed to necessarily go "fancy" and had been here before so we knew you could go either fancy or casual. The atmosphere on the inter-coastal side of the water is quiet, festive...More

Sadly the menu has been changed, prices have gone up and portions tiny - such a shame - one of our favourites on Anna Maria but now won't be going back - huge disappointment

Stunning venue, with great food. Located in The Village, this restaurant was our "find" of the trip. Our server was delightful, and completely focused on making our dining experience memorable. The setting was charming and romantic. We dined al fresco under one of those beautiful,...More

We will return to this place. Food was great, staff were happy and helpful. Rainy night so outside under the trees wasn't opened, it looked beautiful

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.
