A Great Bait Shop, wonderful place to chill, and an AMAZING music venue! LOCALLY OWNED, LOCALLY RUN! We had a spectacular evening last Saturday enjoying a great band while the sun set into the Gulf, with the city lights twinkling over the water, pelicans fishing off the dock, kayaks paddling by and fishing boats coming in for the night. Wrap around water views complete the great vibe of wonderful music, the park under the Ringling provides plenty of space for us spectators, everyone was having fun, some dancing, some performing hula hoops, some fishing, kayaking, enjoying a picnic or just listening. Ship of Fools took over the evening with incredible sets! We never felt crowded ! Getting in and out of the small parking area is a bit slow, so we parked at the Bayfront park area ( no time limit on parking after 8 PM) and took an easy stroll over to Hart’s Landing. There is no cover charge for the great outdoor music on Saturday nights. The owner and his daughter started managing these concerts as a labor of love. They are proud to be part of our local community, which explains the great authentic vibe of the shop. I looked up the history of this bait shop, which goes back in time to a local fisherman - a great read! A free will donation helps to defray expenses, as well as purchases of beverages and food from the bait shop. They also rent kayaks and this looks like a wonderful location to put in and paddle the Sarasota city shores! Indoor rest rooms are available. I love stopping here when I am riding my bike or walking the Ringling bridge. The park is charming with great, safe play equipment and places to sit.
This place is lovely and there is a little bit for everyone. Get here early as there are about 21 car spots and two handicapped parking spots. There is a sunny pier and covered fishing spots available. Nice breeze under the bridge. A half block away is a shop for restrooms, fish bait, plain subs, ice cream, chips, pop, and water. There is a covered gazebo for moms to sit, and a park for the youngins not interested in fishing. Great family place.
Harts Landing Rocks!!! What an amazing venue. This family ran business is off the charts with excellent customer service, fun things to do and provides great hospitality to all their customers. We are extremely selective on where host our events for our meetup group and this is one of favorite venues. We highly recommend Harts Landing. Thank you again, Sherman, Sarah and Shaun for everything you do. Nick V. Leader - Sarasota Over 50 Meetup Group
Great little bait shop on Sarasota Bay. Live music on the dock on most Saturdays with cheap beer, wine & sodas. Great view near the Ringling Causeway Bridge. Pictures are of a twilight view of the bridge.
Great little place to stop. We stopped by after a photo shoot. Got sodas n sandwiches sat on water eat. Nice ppl seemed like they were family owned n operated. They sell bait and other stuff. In the area stop by n support local small shops.
