We take reservations for parties of 6 or 7 only, most of our restaurant is for walk ins. Feel free to call ahead and ask to be put on our waitlist, that should help alleviate some of the wait time.

I suggest you access Owen's website. Just went back there and it was even better the second time! Live entertainment was a nice surprise. One of our favorite Sarasota restaurants.
