O’Leary’s Tiki Bar & Grill Sarasota, Guide & Review
One step away from the ocean, O’Leary’s Tiki Bar & Grill gets you to experience winds from the Gulf of Mexico while you sip on some yummy drinks. Its palm thatch roofs and open-sided deck remind you of a Californian-style tiki bar. The kitchen opens at 8 am to serve breakfast. After taking your dog for a walk along the beach, you both can drop by here for an excellent breakfast. From Sunday to Thursday, the bar is open 8 am to 10 pm, and on Fridays and Saturdays, it’s open from 8 am to 11 pm.
A resident guitar player named Dan has been playing here since 1977. He plays tunes and songs for you to sing and dance to daily. There are Tuesday nights Dave where he plays for some beer and tips. Other than these, Albert Noe and Impulse Reggae also play here now and then. More local musicians and bands, along with those traveling, also have their performances which you can check out on their website.
The food menu has appetizers, handhelds, soups, entrees, hot dogs, and salads. The prices range from $5 to $20 in general, so you can bring your friends in with you and not end up broke by the end of the day. There are local beer options like J Dubbs Passion wheat, or you could have one of the domestic or imported options. There are also a few wines, rum, tequila, and vodka options. The cocktail menu offers frozen drinks like ‘Island Oasis Daiquiri’ and margaritas like ‘O’Learys Gold Margarita.’ There are many pina coladas mixes available here too.
