We stopped in on second night of vacation in Venice and were surprised that there were few people in spite of the all the activities in town that had all the hotel rooms booked. After being served, we realized it must be because of the food. Our server was a veteran employee and was fantastic but the food was not... More

We stopped during a trip to ride our bikes on the Legacy Trail. We had our road bikes attached to our car & wanted to keep an eye on them. They were very accommodating to seat us where we could see our bikes. The raw oysters were large & fresh at a great price. We were very extremely pleased with... More

I have eaten here twice now and I has been bad each time. It's over priced for what you actually get and the menu is all over the place. I don't understand all of the positive reviews you see for this place. It's not even a fun atmosphere.

Roughly, about every 12-18 months we give it try, Tonight, we did it to try their Octoberfest. My wife had the wienerschnitzel, I did the pork special, On both plates, the red cabbage and... More

We were there two nights ago firmly birthday; making this my 4th visit there in a one year period. Needless to say , we have always had excellent food & service here. If you want something really special, get the Potato Encrusted Grouper w/Peppercorn Sauce or the Lobster Mac n Cheese w/Truffle Oil. I am a chef at another Sarasota... More
