Had a great dinner with several business colleagues. The food was excellent and Yovonna provided our group with really great service. The catch of the day was grouper and I had it blackened, it was delicious!

We walked in and had to wait for a table, they seated us outside brought the kids coloring books and all of us water. Once inside we were taken care of by Rendle, who was fantastic! I had the Scotland Salmon and my wife the lobster bisque, both meals were the best we had eaten all week. We had bread pudding for dessert and the kids were to have ice cream sundaes. Rendle came out and told us they were out of ice cream for the kids, but he remedied the problem by suggesting they split the adult serving of brownies. They loved it. He could not have made us feel more welcome, the whole staff was great. We are on vacation from Kentucky and have spent over $100 on every dinner since arriving on longboat key, this was the first dinner that was worth it. We have made reservations for dinner on our last night before heading home. Great job!

Brandon, thank you for choosing Duval's while you were visiting Sarasota on your vacation! Rendle was absolutely thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience so much so that you wrote a review and also mentioned his name. Not to mention making another reservation with us before you left--what a compliment! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing and serving you again the next time you're in Sarasota!

A farm / fishing boat to table restaurant that focuses on freshness by sourcing only the finest ingredients from local fisherman and farmers.They serve great seafood and meats.

Fours of us (two couples) went there as part of the Savor Sarasota event abd we wwere glad we did! They have a special memny where for $32 a person you can order an appetizer, soap or sald, entree and dessert. It also comes with wineparings at $10 per glass. It is ceertainly something not to misds and has a wide selection to please any pallette.
