Ophelia's on the Bay is Sarasota's finest waterfront restaurant now in it's 23rd 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.

Ophelia's food has evolved over the years into a blend of cuisines and influences mixing new world with old, American with Asian, Italian with Floridian. Our chef is constantly researching and creating new dishes for the menu. We print our menu nightly using the freshest local fish and produce available. Our pastry chef has brought us to a new level, bringing home first place in the Taste of Sarasota fund raiser for our local food bank.

Ophelia's is also known for its evolving American cuisine style that is creatively combined with other world cuisines. Combining local fresh seafood and fine meats with Florida grown produce, Ophelia's offers a menu with a distinctly New World flare that changes nightly.
