“Terrific place to meet and relax”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

Met a friend I hadn't seen in 50 years here and the surroundings were terrific. It is on the beach, with moored boats setting out a bit, Tiki Bar area had a live guitar player not overbearing, more like background music. The bar maid and waitress were terrific people and very pleasant and talkative. Turns out they are a pet friendly outside dining facility. Very nice to see pets around and well behaved. This establishment is at the front of a public park area and the views are great. Would highly reccomend. Good parking short walk to the Restaurant/ outside bar. Did not eat while there.

“SIT AND CHILL AWHILE”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

Have visited here loads of times over the years, it never changes, unlike some other places in Sarasota. The staff are awesome, friendly and give a good service.
View is breath taking any time of day or night,lunchtime beer, or watch the sunset over the bay, music most evenings,or just sit and chat ,could not find a nicer tiki bar .
Cannot wait for our next visit back to the States, and the food aint bad tooooooooooo?

“Always fun!!”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

After a hot day at Lido beach, it's almost a given that to truly unwind and cool down, you must stop at O'Leary's near Marina Jack. No matter how warm it may be, the water provides a smooth breeze every time. The tiny tiki bar itself is cool in that the close quarters makes making friends easier than ever. The bartenders are also cool and quick witted.
Just an easy fun place.

“poor quality”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

We ordered two hamburgers and an order of fries. The woman at the counter did not tell us that the burgers all ready came with fires...therefore we received three plates full.
The burgers were small and tasteless and the fries were over done. $25 for horrible food.
