Friendly staff & great location on the water in Sarasota! The mango colada enhanced the island atmosphere.

Popped in for lunch and were not disappointed. Slightly frustrating queuing system to order food but the line moved quickly and our food arrived promptly. Great atmosphere, lovely views from the tiki bar area and live music. Kids loved it too.

Sat right by the water and had a great breakfast. Got so inspired by the ire that we rented jet skis at the location - and got 10 percent off

The bar service was awful and so was the food. The bartender literally waited on everyone else while "making" our drinks. The appetizers that we got were bad as well! The shrimp tasted like something frozen we could get in the Midwest and the nachos were covered in everything canned (canned chili and canned nacho cheese). We were going to... More

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 along the water were great. I loved the ambiance and the music being played. Unfortunately,... 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 plays the guitar and is pretty good. There are a lot of locals and tourists... 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, but it was terrible. We did not eat any of our food as it was... 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.

A fun, casual place to go as a couple or a family. There's almost always live music which is enjoyable. Place your order at the counter and you're given a buzzer to pick up when ready. Basics like hamburgers or fried shrimp and fries are available, as well as other interesting choices. I had blackened, grilled mahi-mahi with mango salsa,... More
