Awesome lunch!

The slider special is so good. Please add this one to the menu. I could come back everyday to order this. Plus it is reasonably priced. I can't believe the flavor. Brad the cook personally came and spoke to my boyfriend and myself and described what was on the sliders. Had such a good conversation... read more

If in the area of New Pass Bridge stop by and grab a fresh inexpensive meal. The menu offers healthy choices but also some delicious hamburgers and hot dogs. The service is quick and polite.

I've been told New Pass is the absolute best place if ya want the experience of a great burger with a spectacular view, whether a simple tourist or a born-and-raised Sarasotian. After a few visits in the past year, other than the beautiful backdrop of crystal clear water and a fresh ocean breeze, I call strike 3 on an average... More

This place has hands down the best burgers I've ever eaten as well as amazing onion rings. Their breakfasts are just as good and I would recommend the French toast sticks and the hash brown sticks.

This place reminded us of home. Lots of water, seabirds, bridges and waterside food places. The staff were very helpful and friendly. So you order at the window and then they call your name when order ready...simple! We had the fish and chips and 1 burger. No complaints. We just enjoyed the ambience around the water. Very pleasant way to... More

Tried New Pass because, well, you just have to! I had the fish and chips and my wife a fish sandwich. Both were OK and generously portioned. Good fries. Sitting on the rail overlooking the bay was enjoyable. Watching boaters come and go for food or bait made the experience. Try New Pass but come for the experience, not amazing... More

The place is a shack off the side of the road - but it's right on the water with a beautiful view of the bay. It's a counter order kind of place and they call your name when done. We had burgers which were greasy but tasty. The French fries were the same. No real service since you order at... More

When I lived in Sarasota this was my office. I was remodeling condos and would sit at one of the tables and make my phone calls to my subs. Best cheeseburger and breakfast sandwich in Sarasota.
