Lunch with Chef Judi: Farlow's on the Water

  • 0

In a quaint seaside town off a busy street in Englewood, you find a magical retreat. Farlow's on the Water is exactly what you hope to find in a locally owned waterfront restaurant. Fresh seafood, beautiful landscaping and dining areas that bring the outdoors in under vine canopied patios and glass enclosed dining room.  But make no mistake, Farlows is not just about the beauty of the waterway and welcoming gardens. The food delivers.

Fresh local seafood, creative salads, cheese board with local honeycomb, and homemade desserts with playful twists.  On a recent visit both indoors and outdoors were bustling with locals and Sarasota visitors eager to relax and dive into fresh fish tacos, creamy seafood pie on puff pastry and an impressive wine list and full bar.

The owners are as dedicated to the community and sourcing local. Just taste the ice cream served with the warm Nutella brownie "soufflé" with salted caramel ice cream from the local Englewood ice cream shop.

Live music 4 nights a week and an impressive fresh whole fish cart romaine the dining room during dinner service.  Serving lunch and dinner daily.  The restaurant is located at 2080 South McCall Road.  For more information, please visit:
