Beautiful at night with all the lights in the trees. Food and service was good but not the best we had at Longboat Key. Started to rain during our visit and we were moved under cover. Location gets an A+!

Went here on a whim with my wife and baby and we're not disappointed! Great little spot with lots of outside seating on the water and a little dock to walk on after eating!

If you love seafood like I do, you'll love Mar Vista. I had a medley of shrimp, scallops and crab. My husband had crab crusted scallops. Both meals were excellent though I did prefer his just a tad. They have a full bar, though we...More

The last couple times we have gone to Mar Vista we sadly have noticed an increase in food prices and a decrease in food quality. Portions seem smaller and not nearly the quality of food we use to love. However, they are renovating the place...More

Mar Vista is a casual place to hand out with friends and family. Boaters like to dock there and get a bite to eat. The food is ok.

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!

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.
