Lunch with Chef Judi: Owen's Fish Camp

Owen's Fish Camp is one of the best laid back concept restaurants ever.

The theme is what it promises: fish camp shack.  Wines are on the black board as 'decent' and 'good', and the eclectic campy theme entices guests to chill out with a cold beer or a cream soda and feast on lobster rolls, grilled hot dog basket, shrimp and grits and fried green tomato salad, smoked fish spread and fried cherry pie.

Open at 4pm every day, expect some long lines, but go out back pay a few bucks for an honor system cold beer on ice and listen to some hillbilly bluegrass music.

Owen's Fish Camp is located at 516 Burns Court in Sarasota.
