We pulled up by a boat that we rented for the day. We ordered a few apps for lunch and loved our waitress, Agnes. Had the brussel sprouts, which were amazing with the soy sesame sauce. We liked it so much, we asked that they...More

My husband and I happened upon this little hideaway restaurant. It is right on the water and the tables are nestled in around a tree grove. Food was great and the wait staff very polite. Best pina colada on the island!!!More

Looking for a bayside restaurant under the trees? Perfect setting, great food (crab pot with Old Bay was amazing) and a great team. Jonny the Greek was the best waiter we've seen since coming to Florida! This really was the highlight of our trip.

I have been many times over the years. The food is consistent each time. This time I had the crusted scallops with crab that was divine. The rest of our group had a variety of things. The hit of the night was the tater tots,...More

Description
Enjoy a delicious fresh Florida seafood meal inside the quaint dining room, on the outdoor covered deck or under the ancient Buttonwood Trees overlooking picturesque Sarasota Bay. Farm to fork, gulf to table and pasture to plate. It's waterfront dining with a unique atmosphere. Leave a dollar bill on the wall and a little bit of your heart to find on your return visit. Voted #1 place to Dock and Dine with our own private 14 slip dock. There is no place quite like the Mar Vista for real Florida dining.
