I have dined here many times and this restaurant is always fabulous! Dry Dock is my go-to every time I’m in the area.
Very nice restaurant with beautiful view of the bay. Would highly recommend the lobster, shrimp and crab linguine.
Everything was outstanding. This venue is pretty pricey. For $41 for two Lobster tails, I expected more, maybe larger tails. Service was excellent and atmosphere was perfect. By far, this was the most expensive dinner for 4, I have ever spent.
Very polite and professional staff. Reservations are a must. And there’s a reason why. Great food and service. Very clean!!!!
We enjoyed coming here. Everyone is very nice and helpful. Food is amazing.
Seated right away, on time, no wait. Lobster bisque and seafood chowder were excellent. Both had Citrus Grouper. Outstanding. Excellent view of bay upstairs.
overall excellent experience.
My husband and I went for a date day during our family vacation. It was the perfect spot for a fabulous dinner and view of the water. We loved the oysters Rockefeller, ribeye, lobster tail, and sea bass. We definitely plan to return the next time we are in the area.
We waited a long time to be able to finally get reservations at Drydock, since a close friend had given us a gift card for Christmas. It was well worth the wait. The food and the restaurant were all outstanding. We will definitely be back.
We love this restaurant. The water view is very pleasant and the food is delicious. The grouper bites are absolutely amazing and we would go there just for them but we have never been disappointed by anything else we have ordered there. BTW, their key lime pie is made on the premises and is really good. Our server last night was Danielle and she was friendly, accommodating, and very professional. We highly recommend this restaurant.
View and decor was nice but food was pretty average and definitely not worth the price.
Celebrated a 90th birthday! Food was phenomenal as always but service was outstanding. Special thanks to host staff for making Jack’s birthday impeccable.
So pretty and a nice quiet evening. The food was great!
Food is always fantastic. Love this place!!
It was pleasant. The oysrers rockefeller were terrific. Lobster rolls were just okay. Service needs work
Wonderful waitress. Food was brought very quickly.
We love the Dry Dock - my Mom's favorite restaurant. Great food - best coconut shrimp in town, and the pina colada can't be beat! The view is amazing and the staff is so accommodating for my 90 yr old mom and her walker. Thanks for making her birthday so special!
Excellent food, service, and water views! Will definitely visit the next time I'm in the area.
Fantastic service and amazing food! The oysters are incredible!
We love the Dry Dock. We always eat there when we come to Longboat. The only negative thing I can say is that one of the main reason we go to the Dry Dock is for the Best Crab Cakes in the world! When the waitress told us that they were not available we were very disappointed.
Shrimp tacos were bomb.
Lobster bites with pins colada dipping sauce is excellent. I had the Seafood Linguine and my wife had lobster and shrimp dinner. Both were great. We finished the meal with Espresso Martinis. Great dining experience.
The food and service was amazing. I will definitely come back whenever I’m in town
I was on vacation in Sarasota and wanted a place on the water. Dry Dock did not disappoint!! The food, wine, service and view were amazing. I had mussels for my appetizer, which was superb!! And linguine with seafood (shrimp, crab and lobster!!) as my entree. It was excellent and a very good portion!! I would highly recommend!!!
The food and experience was amazing.
Our server Samantha was amazing!!
Try the Seafood Linguine with tuscan cream sauce.
This was our first time at the Dry Dock, and it will not be our last. I have already made reservations for Friday. This is one of our favorites. The food great, the service was on point and the price was far as well. This is a must try if you have never been.
Excellent food. Our server was super friendly and informative
We ordered 4 orders of the fried grouper, the special FOD, and 3 were great, one of the orders the fish was old, batter greasy, meat on grouper was dark and not flaky. Not good, very out of character. Since we were with a couple who were there for the first time, we did not send the fish back, but very disappointing.
Beautiful ocean view! Excellent service and delicious food!
Fresh and great tasting Grouper and Snapper. Brought our two kiddos, as well, and they enjoyed their grilled grouper. Great selection for those with celiac and other food allergies. We all enjoyed the views, too!
Had a good time with my wife
For our 13th anniversary.
We loved the Dry Dock! The ambiance was nice and the food was excellent. However, we sat by the water and bugs were biting us and flying around our food the entire time. I wouldn’t sit by the water next time.
Great food great place great view and great staff!!!
First time here and the food was great, service was great. We will definitely return
Wasn’t as good as what some people talked it up to be. The citrus grouper was good but pricey for what it was. The steak was overpriced. Sides were good, and great ambiance though.
Right on time with our reservation and delicious food as always. Had to wait a little bit for our check but in the whole scheme of things . . .
My wife and I spent a couple of days in Sarasota on vacation. Found this place on Open Table. It had great reviews so we gave it a shot. It did not disappoint. Food was fantastic and the service was took notch. Great experience and we will definitely be back.
Delicious food, love the lobster roll and lobster bites as well every item on the menu
Great food , great service and excellent atmosphere
