Ophelia's on the Bay is Sarasota's finest waterfront restaurant now in it's 22nd season. The low profile of the building gives you eye-level views of Little Sarasota Bay framed by tropical vegetation, a water lily pond with a bronze fountain and flower gardens. It is Florida the way it should be, without glitz, just a grand view of an unfettered sweep of water, mangroves, seabirds, and an occasional boat or dolphin gliding by. You may dine in one of two glass walled, casually elegant dining rooms or outside on the dockside open air patio.
Voted number one restaurant in the U.S. for dock and dining by Power and Motoryacht Magazine.
