As always, we had a great time at the Boatyard Waterfront Bar and Grill! The view is wonderful, our food was delicious, and the staff is terrific!! A perfect 10 evening there!!
Lunch was so good. We had winds, wraps, chilli and salads and we all loved everything. Lisa was our server and she was so good. Great personality and right on top of everything. We say on the patio and it was so relaxing. Another great restaurant in Siesta Keys!
Seafood kebabs were fantastic. Comfortable seating on the deck next to the canal.
