Fun tiki bar/casual restaurant right on the water. Great place to grab lunch and/or a few drinks outdoors and enjoy the views. Service was very friendly and prices reasonable. Food was fine, certainly above average (I got the mahi tacos). We liked watching the pelicans fish from our table right next to the water.

Why we keep coming back: Dog friendly seating, seashells, Mai Tai cocktails, burgers, curly fries, sunsets on the marina

We spotted this spot from the road, heading back to our hotel. The location was fantastic and I expected it to be fancy and expensive. I was surprised when it turned out to be, basically, a burger joint with average fried food and the typical guy playing tunes from the 70's on an acoustic guitar. Not horrible for what it... More

Good place for a casual lunch. The view is outstanding on the bay. If you sit outside you have to go inside to order and then they give you a beeper when your food is ready. Ordered the fish tacos. Tasty but a little bit scant on the fish.

The food was good and the prices are reasonable. You have to order your meal first and then find a table to sit at. It isn't the cleanest place, but the views are nice.

My husband and I had dinner at Oleary’s while visiting Sarasota. The location was great, right on the water with beautiful bay and sunset views. We ordered our food at the counter and then found an open picnic table under the large tiki hut. (We visited on a Sunday night; it was busy, but we had no issues finding a... More

Casual bayfront tiki bar and restaurant. Greasy spoon but hey, you can't beat the location. The peel 'n eat shrimp are a safe bet and a shot of Cuervo and a Corona while you watch the sunset makes it all just fine.

At 2:00 in the afternoon on a TUESDAY, we waited nearly half an hour for our meal. They were obviously unable to handle the business they had. Honestly, the counter staff couldn't have been nicer, but it's just badly managed, in my opinion. The food was good - not spectacular. The setting was spectacular. Beautiful views, lovely weather, right on... More

I visited here on a Sunday Afternoon. Bar area was nice. The View is outstanding. A great area to walk around. But do not order food. I spent $35 dollars for two supposedly fresh fish sandwiches. Not fresh fish. Roll was stale or possible just old. Let just say not fresh. I had mine fried and my wife had her's... More
