Love this place. Atmosphere great. Food is what coastal seafood is all about. Dining inside and outside. The frozen drinks are Just Wow. Blackened Grouper dinner was astounding. Gets really busy at dinner time. Cute little gift shop in the same parking lot.

Any time I am in Sarasota, I must visit Phillippi Creek Oyster Bar. Loved it since the 1980s. Nice atmosphere on the river. Good food. Relaxed dining. Friendly staff. A real gem!

Not sure. Maybe for larger parties
We are planning a get together for approximately 18 classmates that are in the area. It will be a follow up to our 50 th reunion. Would it be possible to make reservations for that many for lunch on the water?
