“We have been dining at Crab & Fin for 20+ years, both in its former Charlie’s Crab incarnation, and the current incarnation (must be at least 10 years now). We visit my in-laws in Sarasota, and being elderly they do not dine at the trendiest, latest places. They tend toward tried and true, consistently excellent restaurants with excellent food and service, soft ambient noise and comfortable seating and lighting. Charlie’s Crab is high on our list, among the best dining experiences in Sarasota…if you like fish and seafood...”
“This place has 10 written all over it. Had the oyster medley-fantastic. The yellowfin seared to perfection. Desserts wonderful, we shared but bread pudding my favorite. Wine, service, all exceptional. Don’t miss this stop. Wonderful experience.” – Martin S.
“Piano music and great food. Often after church on Sunday’s we drive across the beautiful Sarasota bridge and enter St Armand’s Circle. There are numerous good restaurants around the popular shopping/dining circle (roundabout) but one of our favorites is Crab & Fin. We like to sit outside and enjoy the piano player and sample various seafood selections on the menu. Note: There is public parking behind the restaurant if parking around the circle drive is full.” – Roger B.
