Breakfast was ok. I had a craving for Blueberry Pancakes and did not want to drive off island. Next time I will drive off island to the Toasted Mango, their Blueberry Pancakes are better.

We always eat a couple breakfasts at the Blue Dolphin when staying at Casa Del Mar on Longboat Key! Food is always great and reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and service is fast even when they are busy!

There are no steps to get into the restaurant. It is in a little shopping mall strip. You should have absolutely no problems at all.
