“Absolutely loved our visit to Phillippi Oyster Bar. We loved The food we ordered and the shrimp were fresh and tasted awesome. Ate some bisque and the flavor was fantastic. The atmosphere was pleasant and our server was cute as a button. Ask for “Jessica” as this was our first time with her as a server. She took great pride in her job and explaining the food we questioned as she explained she had eaten herself.”

Would highly recommend it to others. We do not live in the Sarasota area, otherwise we would frequent it more often. (It’s about 1 hr 45 min drive from our home) The oysters Rockefeller were excellent. The fried shrimp were of good size and taste. The clam chowder had chunks of potatoes, ham, clams and other ingredients and was thick consistency and tasted great.”

I love going to the “Creek” to get stone crabs around October 15 every year! If I do one thing every year it is eating Stone Crabs at he Phillippi Creek, “YOU CAN SET YOUR CLOCK ON IT”. Just went to the “CREEK” on Saturday after the 15th this year again for the eight year in a row. If you want to talk about tradition with me it St. Patties day, and stone crabs at the “CREEK”. CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR!

“Everything is wonderful! I rate this Restaurant excellent because it is overall a great place. I visit Sarasota every summer from West Virginia and we go to Phillippi Creek Oyster Bar at least 3 times every visit. I ALWAYS get the Gator and the chicken teriyaki sandwich. Fun bar and a great environment. I have never had a bad experience at Phillippi Creek. And the view of the creek is beautiful!”

Mandy, Bradenton

This restaurant is not the the newest or fanciest place. It is a converted open air pub and restaurant. The food is out of this world. We have been vacationing in Sarasota for over 25 years and this is the ONE MUST RESTAURANT for us. Keep your fancy spots. I’ll “meet you at the Creek”

Every time I have any family or friends come into town we always go to here to eat (its their 1st choice every year when they visit). We always have a great time and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. fun and lively atmosphere. It’s no wonder they are so busy all the time, always worth they wait. friendly servers and fast service. food come out quick!
