Food Scene
These are some of my favorite dinner spots in Sarasota! They are ALL local, non chain eateries that offer great local feel and fabulous food at what I believe to be very reasonable prices. These are the places I myself choose when dining out!
Love the outdoor bar area under the tiki hut. There is usually live music. Good fresh seafood with reasonable prices. Very close by our location. We have a menu available for you to preview in our guest book.

Great Fresh Seafood. Very Casual. This is generally a "Locals" hang out. They have a great tiki hut bar if you just want to go and listen to music and have a drink or you can enjoy a great seafood dinner inside the restaurant.

This is one of Sarasota's best "hidden gems". It's a little French restaurant with impeccable service and food. They have the best early bird menu in the city featuring a 4 course dinner at GREAT prices! This is a LOVELY date night place!

Owens is in the historic district of downtown Sarasota. It's one of my favorite restaurants. Their specials are always great and I love their fried green tomato salad! Be prepared for a very, long wait as its a very popular spot for tourists and locals alike. Make a night of it and visit the historic Burns Court movie theater next door. They play a lot of film festival and foreign film showings not available in the standard movie theaters.

Because of it's location in the "Siesta Key Village" it can be a bit touristy but even locals love this location for it's very beachy laid back feel, live music and pretty good food! Off season, I visit often and always enjoy this local eatery.

a great lunch spot for a quick delicious taco. It's in the nearby Gulf Gate neighborhood, which is loaded with lots of great bars and restaurants that are NOT touristy at all. This is a local favorite for a quick unique taco experience.

This is a popular rustic-chic venue for craft cocktails (I LOVE the blackberry bramble). It's in downtown Sarasota, which everyone should visit while here!

This is a bike trail that runs between Sarasota and Venice. It's a great place to get in a good exercise run or a bicycle ride away from traffic. It goes through Oscar Scherer State Park if you are a park person.

A great local cruise company that does several cruises around Sarasota Bay. It's a large boat all decorated with tropical scenes like palm trees and mermaids. There is live music on board and food and drink. I love the sunset cruise as a relaxing evening when you are too tired for any more activity but want to make your time count. Ride and relax for a trip around the beautiful bay while taking in a gorgeous Sarasota Sunset. They also do morning dolphin and Manatee watch tours and an afternoon sightseeing and nature cruise. I love the sunset cruise the best!

My favorite location for a kayak trip. The mangrove tunnels are beautiful, a cool respite from the sun and make a great kayaking location. You can rent Kayaks and spend the day exploring Sarasota Bay! Trip Advisor lists tours available or you can just rent a kayak and explore the area on your own.
