By far our favorite place to eat on Longboat Key. Have been going here for 30 years. My favorite is the Crab Cakes!

Great dinner

Went for the 1st time today and we will be back. Food was well prepared, great variety, nice friendly staff and great view. We all had fresh seafood, prepared in different ways all made to perfection. Dinner Cost $$$ but very worth it.

The Best Place for Lunch on LBK

My family & I have been going to Longboat Key since 1982 and the Dry Dock Restaurant is the first place we go after getting off the plane! We always order their handmade onion rings before our meal. They're not on the menu, but if you ask for them they will fix them. The fried grouper sandwich is the best anywhere around. It's lightly fried and juicy in the middle. The burgers are wonderful and juicy as well. The fried shrimp are also lightly fried, big, plump and juicy. All of the seafood items are fresh and reasonably priced. The service has always been outstanding and friendly. Oh, and they have the most amazing view of Sarasota Bay! Definitely the cherry on top!

Excellent food and view!

During our long Memorial Day weekend 2010, we read about Dry Dock and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised by all we found. We loved the view and walking along the board and piers before dinner. We got a fruity drink that was VERY good. We watched the sun go down before our dinner arrived. The food was wonderful....and we do tend to be picky. We ordered the Shrimp Cocktail as an appetizer. The shrimp were HUGE, jumbo shrimp and tasted excellent. We ordered the ceasar salads which were SOOOOO good!! It is hard to find a good Ceasar salad...but this place is good. A lot of garlic...but oh so good! For dinner we ordered the grouper bruchetta which turned out to be completely flavorful. It was a wonderful piece of Grouper perfectly cooked with a tasty, chunky, tomato mixture on top. We tried to back to eat here a second time during our stay but they were closed. Can't wait to go back.
