Went there on a Sunday so the whole family could join the linedance instructions ;) Great fun, and people of all ages ;) The food was good, so if you want to do something different for dinner one dag - why not...;)

The food is great! Love going before the place turns into the club. Cant beat the pricing and the service. You dont have to worry about waiting forever to get drinks because there are a good amount of bar throughout the building. The staff is great. The dance floor is big enough so you dont bump into people all night... More

We have been 5 times and each and every time our order has been great. Extremely hot, fixed perfect and the service is top notch. We have not stayed for the line dancing but will definitely be back for the wonder food. So very hard to find a place that give you that amount of food for the price and... More

Great food, unique drinks, excellent music, and the best service I have seen in Sarasota Fl. This location is perfect for family dinner, business events, or a good fun night out with friends. You can sit at the one of three bars and enjoy a moonshine lemonade, which is served in a 16oz. mason jar, along with an appetizer or... More

I can't say enough positive things about the WBS... I can go there solo and enjoy a drink and an appetizer at the bar because the staff is extraordinarily friendly and engaging. My daughter and I go for early dinner frequently because of the consistent quality and variety of menu items. I've brought large family parties and even larger work... More

Been here a few times and have observed much of what happens, both during dinner service and late night. Management are [--] which translates into poor customer service by the front line staff. Food is well below average, even for a bar. Service is always terrible and once the music starts you won't be able to hear yourself think. Bottom... More

Wanna have a kicking good time??? This is the place! Conveniently located but "off the beaten path". If you want to have a real fun time and meet some great people, this is the place to be. If you can't meet people here, then you need to examine your social skills!! Fun, well priced, entertaining and definitely a good place... More
