Ophelia’s on the Bay
This is what I would say is our #1 restaurant on Siesta Key. We came here about 20 years ago and really enjoyed the waterfront (bay) atmosphere but not to say that their food isn’t spectacular. We brought our youngest daughter here when she was 9 and she is now married and comes with her husband. The menu has choices from land to sea and is flown in from all over the country. My husband always gets the Ahi tuna I like any fish entree. My daughter loves their filets (yes eating filet since she was 9). My son-in-law always goes for the lamb, perfectly cooked. I like that they take reservations. We always sit on the water and watch the fish jumping, boats going by, sea gulls nesting and occasionally a dolphin or manatee. Oh and did I mention they have a pastry chef ? Save room or you wish you had. Worth a mention is the small quaint bar with happy hour from 5:00 – 6:00 pm and discounts on both drinks and appetizers at this time. But get there at 5 because it fills up. Bon Appetit!! Tell them Pam and Gregg sent you.
