Well, the marina in front plays the magic. We had early dinner, service was perfect. We ordered Salmon and a seafood in delicious tomatoes sauce, very good. I am not sure anyone can get into this club's restaurant, so call first.

This restaurant is part of the Longboat Key Club and unless you are a member or a guest of th Hotel you can't eat there. Nice setting by the Marina and good menu. My favorite are the Veal Limone and any Pizza.

As we were staying at the LBKC we were anxious to give this restaurant a try. It looks fabulous from the outside, nice decor internally, and the staff are very friendly and efficient. So why not a 5 star review - the food, whilst perfectly...More

Can you eat here if you are not a guest or member of the LBKC? We tried to visit the spa a few years back while visiting our condo on LBK and were turned away. Thanks!

Unfortunately, we are a private resort that serves only to resort guest, marina guest, or club members. Because of this, we are a non-cash facility and can only charge to existing accounts.
