Recently on a trip down to Sarasota, we wanted some seafood and decided to try Phillippi Creek restaurant. In had inside and outside seating.

We've loved coming here for many years when in Sarasota and it's always been terrific from the oysters to the soft shelled crab. Certainly its not fancy, but it's good honest food with a large menu. The only downside is the price, almost $25 for a seafood platter and $12 for one average sized crab cake.

What a great setting on the water. Sat inside next to docks. Love the lower windows to see the water. Had lunch special with conch fritters. Fritters delicious and blackened grouper wraps. Portions are large and filling. Service very nice, fast and efficient. The potato wedges were battered and not much flavor is why 4 stars. Will come back good... More

I saw their reviews and was looking for some good seafood. The prices looked fair. The place is cute like a raw bar with deck. The service was slow.... and it wasn't even that busy and although they have a huge huge seafood menu that sounds great... nothing was that good. Clam chowder was super thick and not that good,...

The fish tacos ($15) are unique and to die for. Three thin blue toasted shells with tempura'd fish, feta cheese, avocado. Prompt service. A favorite lunch spot, especially after the lunch crowd.

We had the oysters Rockefeller and a crab cake sandwich with the parsley potatoes and followed by the key lime pie! Oh my so good! Also had a few local IPA beers on draft! We enjoyed this place so much and would definitely return! ❤️

Had a shrimp & scallop dish cooked in white wine that was terrific. Best hand made onion rings ever. The crab cakes were seasoned strangely, but everything else was fantastic!
