We came in to have some dinner before hitting up the beach and the drum circle. I was excited to try the clam chowder. It was definitely good, I enjoyed the gator better. The food was prepped well, could have used some more seasoning/flavor. They do mention lightly seasoned and they do mean it. We did get some entertainment in the form of some verbal exchanges between the hostess and a server. It almost went down :) They do offer outdoor seating and we had seen that there was live music at times. We were a party of 5 and we were seated immediately, they were pretty busy. I would give them another shot next time we are in town. Enjoy y'all!
Came in to watch the football game and have a bite to eat and a few drinks with friends. Had coconut shrimp that was fantastic! Tried a cup of clam chowder that claimed to be the world's best. I've had a lot of clam chowder in the northeast and was very skeptical. I will say, it was really good. Was it the best, I don't know, but it is definitely worth having a big bowl. The service was fast and friendly; the food fresh, flavorful and cooked perfect. Overall a good place to go for food, drinks and watching your team on the big screen.
So.......is all the hype about Captain Curt's Crab & Oyster Bar being the best true?? Is it a experience that you cannot pass up when vacationing in Siesta Key?? After my wife and I finally visited here on our 3rd vacation I would have to say yes 👍. The food here is really good, really good quality. Absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Sydney was out Waitress and was super polite and had good knowledge of the menu and available beverages.She had our drinks and appetizers out to us really fast. We arrived ahead of the dinner rush around 5 pm. So we were able to get a table in about 5 minutes. If you go at a peak time on a weekend like last time that we passed it up because we were looking at an hour minimum to get a table so definitely recommend a off time or day for the visit because it really is that popular. I tried the Coconut Shrimp and the fried Claims for my appetizer and they were both delicious and perfectly cooked. Then I had the Grilled Grouper Fillet for my entrée and it was super delicious and a generous portion. Perfectly cooked and buttery texture. My wife sampled the Gulf Shrimp basket fried, both plates came with generous helping of house cut fresh French fries and the cold slaw was also delicious. Overall I would say a extremely tasty dinner treat for a modest price considering our location. $$ per person. They have a extensive collection of House made cocktail combinations. Also a wide selection of ice cold draft beers 🍻. They also have a extensive menu besides what we tried and we will be anxious to try different items on their menu on our next visit. Definitely a must try if you are a seafood fan like us. I also absolutely love the decore and atmosphere in this place it really has amazing character.
The restaurant was recommended to us. We wanted something casual because we had been out on the boat, but good atmosphere for my daughter’s birthday. We had a bad experience at one of the other restaurants so we were skeptical. However, everything was delicious we had crabs, blackened grouper sandwich, shrimp and grits, gator bites, oysters and clam chowder. Everything was cooked to perfection!! The services was absolutely amazing the waiter ( I can’t remember her name) was so respectful and attentive! She was good with the adults and kids. It’s hard to find good costumer service after covid so we were so thankful to have her!
The place was busy, and for a good reason. The service was fast and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I'd go back in a heart beat. Oysters were fresh and tasty, the boom boom shrimp were a table favorite.
