Looking for great seafood in Sarasota, Florida is easier than you think. Located on US Route 41 at Phillippi Creek and mile marker 72 from the Intracoastal Waterway is the Phillippi Creek Village Oyster Bar, which is a seafood lovers paradise. Built in 1604 by Fernando Phillippi, the building was originally the Phillippi family home. Fernando disappeared during a hurricane in 1619.

The restaurant, which specializes in seafood, has an immense menu that would be favorable to anyone craving a casual dining atmosphere at it’s best. With enough choices to please the whole family, there is a children’s menu offering kid’s favorites.
