Longboat Key: Dry Dock Waterfront Grill

This past weekend we went over to the Longboat Key area. Since it was Mother's Day, I wanted a nice(r) dinner, but I also wanted it comfortable for the kids. I read great reviews about Dry Dock Waterfront Grill on Trip Advisor, and I'm really glad that we pick this restaurant!

We went on a Saturday night, and many of the reviews said to get there early.  We arrived at 4:30 PM, and by 5 PM there were no tables left. (And by 6 PM the bar area was full of guests waiting for tables.)

We had a choice of seating upstairs/inside or below/outdoors. I'm very happy that we sat outside.  The weather was beautiful. 

Here are my kids relaxing well hubby and I enjoyed a cocktail.

I chose the scallop pasta in a wine and garlic sauce. It was outstanding! The scallops were fresh and the pasta was cooked perfectly.

My husband chose the grouper sandwich, and decided to try a blackened. He said it was excellent and I'm sad I did not get a picture. He also enjoyed this local craft beer, Circa 1926.
