Dear Friends: I know I cannot convince you that it was not my problem that our time tonight at your restaurant was unpleasant. This is what I want you to know: I just spent more than $200 at a place I used to love to go to. I took five friends and clients there and left angry and hurt. Good... More

Knick's quaint atmosphere and comfort foods keep the locals coming back weekly! Calamari best in town, burgers and salads mouth-watering! Nightly specials are consistently cooked to perfection. Love the staff, owner and variety of items!

Knick's has great atmosphere and food! It is favorite lunch and dinner venue for Southside Sarasota locals. In addition to all of their great offerings, they have the best burger in town!

This isn't a 4 star restaurant, not in Sarasota. It's not even a 4 star tavern and grill. 3 is fine, but it's not any better. Came here with my mom on a Monday night. Having looked at the menu on line, I had a pretty good idea of what I was going to get - their Monday special, Chicken... More

A family owned neighborhood tavern with great food. Daily specials are on the board. Several draft beers and a nice wine selection. They do a very busy lunch business.

Great wings along with other great food. Great ambiance for a date night too. Food and drinks are decently priced and service is very friendly and attentive. My only suggestion would be to offer a happy hour drink menu.

We have eaten at Knicks at least once a week now for about 6 months and have always had a wonderful meal that's reasonably priced. The shortrib sandwich is fabulous and very tender. The salmon sandwich is delicious too. My husband likes the waffle fries and I like the steak fries. The service is very attentive and friendly. Jordan does... More

Have eaten here four times with friends and family. It was good the first time. Enjoyable the second time. Bad service the 3rd time and really bad all around the 4th time. I might add , all within a several month period. The first and second time when the owners were there it was good, very attentive. I liked them... More

Food took awhile to come out...only to have the waitress set down all 3 actually 6 dishes at the same time..... and her explanation of all this food was we did not specify that you... More
