We wanted something different and this place fit the bill. Very quirky, rustic, causal yet very nice. The server was outstanding, and honest. I asked about one entree and she said “don’t get it, they have fresher fish if that’s what I was looking for....More

Very quaint little restaurant off the beaten path. Can be very busy but the ambiance and live music make the wait enjoyable. Ive been here a hand full of times, and the food is always amazing. Very fresh seafood and a good drink/beer selection. A...More

Had a wonderful dinner on Friday evening with family. We ate outside. Staff was so friendly and made you feel at home. The Low Country Boil dinner served two but could easily accommodate more. Thumbs up from those sharing! A lobster Cobb salad with crab...More

I recommend this place for its variety of fresh fish and creative appetizers. The only reason for the 4 stars, versus 5, is that my hubby was not as thrilled with his jambalaya entree. We got there before opening, to put our name on the...More

If you're traveling to Sarasota, Owen's Fish Camp is a must! The outdoor area has live music, fresh oysters, boiled peanuts (all cash only) and is perfect for children! If dining in the restaurant, be prepared to wait quite awhile though.

You are right in the middle of Sarasota and you feel like you step back in time, 1950’s! The food is very good and I would give it an 8 our of 10! Do not pass it by!

This restaurant is basically an old run down fat lighter house converted to a restaurant & bar. After giving them my cell and agreeing to a text alert in 30 minutes when our table was ready, we adjourned to the extremely hot, but shaded backyard...More

So the wait was 45 min and they say that is good for this place. If it wasn’t for the outside (backyard) setting, we would have left. They had cornhole, a live band, and other games that made time fly. Only downfall is the amount...More

There was only 2 of us and we only waited maybe 10 minutes, but that flew by with the drinks and atmosphere! We went on a weekday.

Yes, the server will tell you whats available for children. My little one had a hamburger and fries-can’t remember what other items are on there, but it had a pretty standard kids selection available.
