It is easy to understand why such franchise restaurants as Red Lobster, Chili's and Olive Garden are facing tough times in some areas. In Sarasota, at least, Longhorn Steakhouse is very popular at lunchtime. And for good reason. Located off the Tamiami Trail across from Gulfgate Mall, Longhorn is a very comfortable restaurant with very good service and very good... More

Food was really good, but ordered a takeout meal of salmon with a sweet potato and fried tomatoes, Received extra bread, no fried tomatoes and the salmon. We were billed for the fried tomatoes and they wouldn't reverse it off the bill. We ordered unsweetened tea and received sweet tea which we had to send back as several members in... More

Little too long of a wait but that's the price you pay. Great menu selection. there Blackberry Sangria is AMAZING. The Filet's are tender and cooked just as ordered. Love their appetizer breads to and the breaded asparagus appetizer was scrumptious. We will always come back to this place.

good food and great service., Prices reasonable to the area. location a little tricky to get to. watch out for the rush of elderly eaters around 3-5pm. wait times 15-30 minutes then. Going later cuts those completely

I visited this restaurant twice during my visit. The first time I ordered the ribeye medium rare, which may have been a mistake as the steak was a bit to fatty to enjoy that rare, however, it was still edible and I thoughly enjoyed the bread and butter. On my second visit I had the Sirloin medium and it was... More

These people know how to cook a steak. I mean really know. I had to wait a while to get served. But hey. It's the New Year. I'll be back. Hopefully next Christmas. And you are definitely on my list.

After being told that there was an hour and a half wait at the Longhorn's Steakhouse on Fruitville, I called the one on GulfGate drive and they said we could be seated in 10 minutes. We rushed over and had a yummy meal. The shrimp and crab dip, the shrimp appetizer, and chili fries were great. My salad was good... More

We had a friendly waitress, but the food was just so-so. Strange seasoning on the steaks. The atmosphere was really nice and the decorations pretty cool, but we've had better food at other steakhouses for the same price.

My wife craved a Long Horn steak dinner. I suggested we go to our Venice Outback, but she insisted on Long Horn. Before we went to this Long Horn, I checked TripAdvisor to compare it to the Long Horn on Fruitville Rd. There were several comments about being kept waiting for tables and meals at that one, so we chose... More

I'm not knocking it. Just comes across as average to me. The menu is predictable and the servings are adequate. Service is well meaning but slow in my experiences. Suggestion: do not sit near the kitchen or bar unless foul language doesn't bother you during dinner.
