 ABOUT THE DRY DOCK

We are located at the south end of Longboat Key at the Boathouse marina, just a few minutes from St. Armand’s Circle, Mote Marine, and downtown Sarasota.  As locals will tell you, we are best known for serving one of the best grouper sandwiches on Florida’s West Coast.  We feature panoramic views of Sarasota Bay from our inside second story dining area or, enjoy dining outdoors on our dockside patio.   

Read what the press is saying about us!

"Just what you want in a grouper sandwich: a thick flaky grouper filet, blackened and served on a soft roll with a side of French fries. The kicker, though? The intensely flavorful sweet chili cilantro sauce that came on the side.  Don't miss it."

Sarasota Magazine  04/13
