The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill is a “polished casual” restaurant over looking Sarasota Bay. We are located at the south end of Longboat Key behind the gas station. We are north of St. Armand’s Circle, and minutes from downtown Sarasota. Best known for Local Fresh Grouper and Red Snapper. Enjoy the second story dining area with a panaramic view of the bay, or enjoy dining outdoors on our dockside patio.

    We had family visiting and we all enjoyed a great dinner at Dry Dock. It is my favorite place to dine in our area. Their seafood is fresh, always prepared just right too. Service is excellent and the view is just gorgeous. You can eat at the downstairs bar too. They offer inside and outside dining areas.

    Always my fav restaurant. Food is fresh and delish. Decor is bright and relaxing. Servers are very familiar with the menu. I could go on and on. If you go. Try the Nila Kila cocktail. You won’t be disappointed!!!!

    Our first visit here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Seated upstairs with beautiful views of the bay, unobtrusive attentive service from Theresa and stunning food. We will return!
