We arrived at Mar Vista after 3 hours of kayaking so we were more than ready for shade, a breeze, something cool to drink and food. Mar Vista provided it all! Sierra served us and did a great job. We sat under the beautiful trees...More

Delicious crab legs and grouper in a gorgeous outdoor setting on the bay under the trees. The service was excellent with Sierra as our waitress. We will be back when we vacation here again. You can't go wrong having dinner here.

Had to wait a while for our table, but the bar tender helped out by making all the kids smoothies. Outside dinning was nice and food was good. Look forward to going back.

The setting was incredible. We were there for lunch on 6-24-16. While the burgers looked really great I decided on chicken salad on a lettuce leaf. On a scale of 1-10 the chicken salad was about a 4-5. The fruit that came with it looked...More

Friendly, casual restaurant on the Intracoastal just at the North end of Longboat Key Great to moor up at lunch when you're in the water. Great cocktails and food offerings. The fish sandwiches are fresh and tasty.

Unfortunately the county nor the city has a defined ordinance regarding doggie dining and we cannot take the chance on one customer putting our health certificate in jeopardy. So sorry because we love dogs!

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.
