Visiting Longboat Key or new to the area? We often have clients ask for dining options in the area; we have some options for you.  Feel free to check out a video here: LONGBOAT KEY RESTAURANT TOUR | with veteran Sarasota and Longboat Key, FL real estate expert – me!

My first recommendation is Trip Advisor’s #1 Rated Restaurant in the Island, Maison Blanche. This modern French restaurant is set on the beach side of Gulf of Mexico Drive, connected to Four Winds Beach Resort. Open Tuesday thru Sunday from 5:30-9:30, reservations are recommended! For full details, visit their website at: https://themaisonblanche.comS

Second on the list is the highly sought out Euphemia Haye restaurant. Known for their “imaginative” a la carte menu, with separate dessert room upstairs, Serving dinner Tuesday thru Sunday, reservations are highly recommended! For full details, visit their website

Next…Harry’s Continental Kitchen. Harry’s is one of the very very few island restaurants that are also open for breakfast! The staff here are all so sweet and kind, and you must make this one of your dining stops in the area. You can also visit their deli/bakery just across the street from the restaurant for some yummy goodies! For detailed info on all their offerings, including their extensive menu, visit:

Last, I recently visited Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant, on North Longboat Key. Mar Vista sits right on the water, and is the perfect lunch or dinner stop after spending the day on the water, or on the beach. The outside looks can be deceiving, as once you step behind the fence the setting is beautiful and serene. For hours, menu info and more, visit
