Nice Lunch - Just What We Were Looking For

I had heard that Boca Grande was a special place and decided to take a Sunday drive down from Sarasota for the first time with my wife. It was about an hour away over a causeway and a long stretch of two lane road. We heard there was a nice little town to walk around but we wanted lunch... read more

Part of Gasparilla Hotel. Lower level outdoors is the most fun but upstairs on the deck also very good if weather is nice. Menu offers good variety. Expensive but well worth it.

Boca Grande in the summer is not exactly high season, but still gets a number of visitors trying to get away and take advantage of the amazing fishing. Most of the restaurants (admittedly there are few) are either closed or renovating (or both) during this time. We had a tough time getting our party seated anywhere, but did get into... More

Great meal here. Sat at the bar and had drinks and then ordered dinner. I had the Turkey BLT with fruit and my husband had the Fish Tacos with fries. Really good. The very lovely bartender, Melanie (?) took our dinner order. We were tempted by the couple next to us when we saw their food but we were going... More

My family and I ate at The Pink. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the roasted chicken. I would certainly recommend it.

My husband and I had a date night here and really enjoyed it. The Fish and Chips are grouper and very tasty! The red cabbage coleslaw was delicious too! Would recommend this for sure!

Nice menu with an assortment of all kinds of food. Everyone was warm, helpful, and accommodating. Bar area is not big, but there is a great cocktail list. The wine list is good, as well. There is outdoor sitting and there is a ramp for wheel chair access. This place is not super big, but comfortable and inviting. The lighting... More

Food was very good especially the grouper taco. The staff were very pleasant My only irritation was that on the website it refers to their dress code - my suggestion is only have a dress code if you are going to stick to it !! We had made an effort only to find people who'd dressed for Walmart :(((

"The Pink" is top notch and definitely the best place on the island (in our opinion). Service is, by far, the best of all the places we have visited. Grouper tacos are truly one of a kind - something to come back for every year. Also delicious - the wedge and the lobster and shrimp salad sandwich - even the... More
