Fodor's Expert Review The Old Salty Dog

$$ Sarasota American

A menu of steamer and raw-bar options has been added to the much-enjoyed old favorites, including quarter-pound hot dogs, fish-and-chips, wings, and burgers—and early birds can catch breakfast here now, too. With views of New Pass between Longboat and Lido Keys, this is a popular stop for locals and visitors en route from Mote Aquarium and the adjoining bay-front park. Open-air dining area is comfortable even in summer, thanks to a pleasant breeze. Its bar is shaped from the hull of an old boat. There's another branch on Siesta Key (5023 Ocean Blvd., 941/349–0158).
