The food here always is outstanding. I especially loved my Tripletail Grouper, was fantastic! The waitstaff is always friendly and prompt. There's normally a wait to get in, but they have a fun seating area in back where you can chat and enjoy beverages during your wait.

This is a very popular and busy place and does not take reservations. We went on a Thursday night and by 6pm, was packed! But you can sit outside in the back and listen to the music until your table is ready (bring bug spray!) Great fish menu, with nice sides. Dessert was delicious. Loved the décor and atmosphere, you... More

No reservations -- first come, first served. We waited about an hour on a Sunday evening, but there is entertainment out back on the patio, and the food was well worth the wait. Service is fast and the prices are reasonable. If you too hungry or thirsty to wait for your reservation to come up, they have a limited menu... More

Food fabulous - our waitress great! The hostess who called our phone to make sure we still wanted our reservation was insistent that we be all together -she would not seat us and that they would only hold the reservation for 10 minutes. Okay I said but it left an uneasy feeling - not too welcoming. We arrived to the... More

We went a week ago, I know the food is delicious, it can be very crowded, they don't take reservations but they do call ahead seating. We called at 6:15, were told there was a 1:45 minute wait, so our time was 8:00, perfect! We arrived at 7:30, only to be told we missed our time. WHAT?! However, they were... More

The BBQ Oysters/Bacon/Jalepeños were off the charts!! All of the food was magical! I had the catfish and it was off the charts! The dessert was sooooo great we ordered two - a berry crisp/cobbler!

Every year we go to Siesta Key we look forward to visiting Owen's Fish Camp . We love everything about the place . The long wait for your table gives you an opportunity to relax out back with a cocktail and a snack from the grill while listening to some great local music . No matter what you order ,... More
