We love going to Off The Hook, a small restaurant in the Gulf Gate section of Sarasota. The fish is fresh daily, so your seafood options are always changing. What we love most about Off The Hook is that you are offered a variety of...More

The smell of bleach was so prevalent that it was difficult to eat. Not sure if the glasses were being cleaned this way or the bar itself, but it was a strong smell and I could not enjoy the meal. We went for dinner and...More

Delicious fresh fish made the way you would like. Just a bit on the pricey side but overall would recommend for an upscale fish meal.

They offered 4 different types of fish and about 10 different ways to prepare the fish. The three of us all ordered different meals and the food was very good. If you are looking for a good fish dinner I would definitely recommend this place.

Friends recommended this (relatively) new restaurant to us. We were very pleased with the food and the service was fantastic. Lovely waiter/bartender who could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We would go back just to be served by him alone. The fish main...More

On my visits, the menu changes with the seafood that is freshly caught. It has always been fresh and very well prepared.
