boat up restaurants

It should come as no surprise that one of the best things about life in the Sarasota and Bradenton area is our beautiful coastline. From swimming and surfing to fishing and kayaking, there are endless ways to experience the Gulf Coast, but waterfront dining is one of our favorites. 

At these awesome dockside eateries, you can literally pull right up on your boat, hop out and enjoy a great meal within footsteps of the water. Let our real estate agents be your guide to the best boat-up restaurants near Sarasota!

  • O'Leary's Tiki Bar & Grill - 5 Bayfront Dr, Sarasota, FL 34236
    When you picture a waterfront tiki bar in Florida, you're probably picturing something that looks an awful lot like O'Leary's. Located a stone's throw from these Sarasota homes for sale, this popular local watering hole is the perfect dockside stop for lunch, dinner, or drinks. O'Leary's Tiki Bar & Grill serves up some of the best Mahi Mahi tacos around, and they have live music almost every day. 

  • Marina Jack - 2 Marina Plaza, Sarasota, FL 34236
    Located on the waterfront right in the heart of Downtown Sarasota, Marina Jack is a classic spot for waterfront dining. The menu in their elegant dining room is centered around steaks, seafood, and pasta, and they also have an outdoor patio space with a more laid-back atmosphere. As its name might suggest, Marina Jack is also a full-service marina, so if you don't have your own boat, you can rent one here. 

  • Caddy's - 801 Riverside Dr E, Bradenton, FL 34208
    A sandy beach, two tiki huts, boat docks, and an outdoor stage make Caddy's a riverside paradise near the mouth of the Manatee River in Bradenton. You'll find many Bradenton homes for sale near this charming waterfront eatery. Caddy's is also located right next to Nautical Native Fishing Adventures, making it the perfect spot to grab celebratory drinks after a successful day of fishing. 

  • Pier 22 - 1200 1st Ave W, Bradenton, FL 34205 
    With a charming atmosphere that is upscale yet casual, Pier 22 has been one of Bradenton's best dockside eateries since 1976. They serve outstanding seafood entrees and also whip up killer mimosas and bloody Marys, making Pier 22 a beloved brunch spot as well as a great dinner restaurant and happy hour hangout. You can enjoy spectacular views across the water from their patio. 

  • Dry Dock Waterfront Grill - 412 Gulf of Mexico Dr, Longboat Key, FL 34228
    With al fresco dining and a boathouse next door, Dry Dock Waterfront Grill is a perfect place to pull up your boat and enjoy a great meal. Their beautiful location is right at the edge of Sarasota Bay and minutes from these Longboat Key homes for sale. The wide-ranging menu at Dry Dock Waterfront Grill includes everything from salads to burgers, but they're especially well known for their amazing seafood, including locally caught Florida Gulf grouper and red snapper. 

  • Dockside Waterfront Grill - 509 N Tamiami Trail, Venice, FL 34285
    Craft cocktails and fresh fish of the day are always on hand at Dockside Waterfront Grill, a beloved harborside hangout that is as popular among locals as it is among visitors. Just minutes from many Venice homes for sale, this spot has a friendly vibe and lively atmosphere that often includes live music.
