I usually don't rave about a restaurant, but this one was special. I was visiting the Sarasota area and friends took me to this off-the-beaten-track restaurant which apparently shares ownership with a fine dining restaurant down the road. Nice wine list. The 2012 Lodi Estates can was tasty. The food was superb. I had tempura battered beets as an appetizer,... More

relatively small in a strip shopping center. Atmosphere informal with good vibes. We like sitting at the tall communal table and meeting new people. We shared a starter of fried beets, a generous portion. Fried crispy and excellent. My wife had the mussels and I had the local clams. I like clams on linguini but they were very fresh and... More

A fun place with great food and staff. They are owned by Beach Bistro but the prices are reasonable. Would recommend making a reservation as they fill up fast.

The name sounded strange (I don't like to be told to eat here) but we walked in anyway based on other reviews. Fish (Salmon and Grouper) was fresh and very well prepared. Soups were superb. We were very pleased and will go again.

Let me say that I thought the grilled cheese was very good! I added the bacon and tomato which was nothing to write about. The French onion soup was not impressive, but the butternut squash was very tasty. We had meatloaf which was okay and two fish dishes which were okay as well. I was impressed with the waiter initially... More

Modern decor, nice ambience, staff friendly and helpful. Had supper, the gulf coast seafood stew for $24 which was excellent, and the lobster and shrimp tacos for $16.50 which were good. Concept is to serve up food when it is ready so good for sharing instead of waiting for all meals to come out. Some interesting choices, fresh and unique.... More

The food was better last year, paid a lot for just average food and no ambience, but staff was friendly. Not really sure why this place is so popular, found other restaurants where food was better.

From the outside this restaurant doesn't grab your attention but once you are there it is a great experience. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The entrees are unique and were delicious, especially recommend the salmon!

Eclectic and different. Finicky eaters stay home. Bring adventurous tastebuds. Creative and Never disappoints. No atmosphere but menu makes up for that. The fries are well seasoned and Try the specials, they are always delicious.
