Fodor's Review

Nestled in a banyan-shaded corner of the hip Burns Court district of downtown Sarasota, this spot dishes out quintessentially Southern fare (though the menu is not geographically limited) that is particularly heavy on the seafood options. You'll find everything from the shrimp and oyster po'boy with bacon to chicken-fried lobster tail, a popular appetizer. The restaurant is a converted cottage built in 1923, and the setting gives an additional layer of charm to a casual eatery that's won the hearts of tourists and locals alike. Takeaway "jars" offered include smoked fish spread with saltines, fried pickles, and boiled peanuts. Note: there can often be a wait, so get here early because you can't reserve a table.
