Today we tried Dry Dock Waterfront Grill based on a friends recommendation that this is her favorite restaurant out of all the restaurants in this area. The food is fresh and local! Dry Dock is hidden at the south end of Longboat Key at the Boathouse Marina, behind the gas station, north of St. Armand’s Circle, and just minutes from downtown Sarasota. Best known for its fresh Grouper meals, but is certainly just one of many delicious options, as well as for their panaramic views of the bay.
Today for lunch, I tried the Coconut Shrimp Salad which was one of the best salads I’ve ever eaten. The salad consists of mixed greens, fresh pineapples, strawberries, dried cranberries, glazed pecans and topped with large crispy coconut shrimp and served with really yummy pina colada dressing. I asked for extra dressing because it was so good! My husband had the Blackened Florida Gulf Red Grouper Sandwich on a brioche bun and served with creamy coleslaw. The sauce for the sandwich was spicy and delicious. Hands down one of the best grouper sandwiches around! The menu is a little pricey but worth it. The food and atmosphere is amazing! I highly recommend giving Dry Dock Waterfront Grill a try. https://geckosgrill.com/dry-dock-waterfront-grill/
