This is our 2nd year visiting the Sarasota/Siesta Key area, and this year O'Leary's was on my list. I wanted a restaurant that was right on the water and that had that island feel and it did not disappoint. The Tiki Huts and the tables...More

While walking around the Bayfront Park we happened into the Tiki Bar to sit and relax and have a lunch break. We have done this every time we visit this area and have enjoyed ourselves each time. There is always an entertainer who sings and...More

Stopped in here to get some breakfast but it was horrible. The lady who waited on us was rude and the place looked horrible. The business sits on the bay and you would think it would be a great place for a halfway decent restaurant,...More

Now this is a great place with a view of the water. The bartender's....Paul,Jason,Tracy,Katie are awesome. Their friendly as hell and fun to talk with if they have time. The best place for a sunset is there with a drink in you hand.

Kids, you can't get much more beach ambience! And beach dining in Sarasota is rare! It's right downtown, under a not-so-common Tiki roof and makes you feel like you're on vacation. Standard burger stuff. Don't get this place confused with the Ritz but go.

Absolutely fantastic bartenders, great location and laid back vibe. Go to the bar for adult beverages and adult company, or sit on the benches for more of a family oriented experience. No table service, so you order from the little shop or from the bartenders....More

Good food and drinks for certain. The best bartenders in Florida. The view is incredible if you enjoy Sarasota Bay, boats anchored and Dolphins swimming around.

This is a very casual bar-food setting, with the emphasis on the view!! NOBODY comes here for the food...It is very AVERAGE and that's being kind !!! It's all about the view and the "Key West" island type atmosphere...You order your food, pick it up...More

Yes you have to park a little bit away but it not blocks just yards. Very busy parking lot not only for the tiki bar. But you can get dropped off closer.
