A singular waterfront experience on Siesta Key. Beautiful BAY views, and across the street from Turtle Beach, (free outdoor showers at the condo! ) at the bottom of the key. Wonderful food, be sure to check their website, but for elegance, and the only water view on the key, this is your spot for an elegant or casual meal.

This is THE ORIGINAL unchanged true Florida classic. Here you can get the best greasy fried onion rings, or my favorite, the tuna melt with bacon on toasted rye. Pure fifties, innocent decadence, road style. Heart of industrial Sarasota, one of the oldest remaining establishments. True Sarasota culture.

In the heart of Siesta Village, this is a delightful choice for a more elegant dinner and drinks. High ceiling bar is spacious, beautiful, active and incorporating pizza oven, glimpses into the kitchen with loft seating above. Or be guided into more private quiet dining room areas. Long a growing Siesta Key favorite, great food, good for drinks and snax in the evening, super socializing in the bar, or intimate dinners, aft.

On the craziest nights downtown, somehow, this bar/restaurant manages to be quiet and ambient. Easy softness in lighting, sound, crowd, reliably GREAT food. We park best spot on Main St, from the east, 301, and stroll the action. Lemon and Main are the peak of the action, and Patrick's on the SW corner is the best of the lot in our opinion for an enclave of peaceful dining. Then you can cross the street to the Gator Club for some wild dancing, or go next door to Mattison's for drinks and the live music of the moment. Patrick's is a peaceful respite in between, terrific food reasonably priced, a mature choice for downtown, especially if you like conversation.

Florida state satellite park
We in Sarasota are blessed to have this important satellite laboratory and aquarium. They are at the pulse of our seas and sea life, world wide. A highly recommended visit. A perfect day could start with breakfast on the fishing docks at the entrance to City Island (New Pass Grill) then a morning event or tour at Mote (always check websites for events and schedules). One could walk Ken Thompson, snoop our sailing squadron, have a swim, or meet the grandkids at the jungle gym. Then for a casual lunch or sunset dinner, the Salty Dog sits up over the intercoastal, all on the same little island.
