Eat lunch occasionally while in Sarasota. Steamed shrimp always good & fresh. Grilled salmon my favorite fish here. On the small plates. Theresa, our server is the best and adds to the enjoyment of our meal!

Not interested in deplorable food or the owners guns. We came for seafood, not his politics. There are better places.

The Barnacle Bill's downtown is a nice restaurant. This one, on Tamiami Trail, seems like a old diner that hasn't gotten much love. The decor is not very nice. The plastic tablecloths stick to you when you touch them. Even though the restaurant was dead...More
