Boatyard Waterfront Grill is exactly what the name of the grill states, beautiful views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the adjacent boatyard. Good food and good drinks with a nautical decor makes this grill a must visit. Jolly Chriss.

Outside, dockside seating offers glimpses of docile Manatees, playful Dolphins and elegant yachts. You can't find a better piece of paradise-dine and drink on the water while taking in the local majestic views of Little Sarasota Bay on Siesta Key's famous South Bridge. In addition to taste-tempting dinner and lunch menus with something for every taste, appetite and budget, The Boatyard Bar & Grill offers Siesta Key's outstanding menu complete with the freshest-available oysters, crack-and-peel shrimp and other delicacies from the sea. Daily seafood and regional specialties' also are available.
