We visited this LongHorn Steakhouse while in Sarasota. We hadn't been to one of these restaurants in a long time and, we had a coupon. We were greeted warmly and seated without a wait. The décor is what you'd expect of a Western themed facility, just a little dark for our tastes. The food was served promptly and was warm... More

KManager knows his steaks. The quality has just improved over a very good steak house to a great one. Try the Porterhouse. It is a meal by itself but wow, good tasting. The Flo's Filet 6 oz is the better of the two. 8 oz is just a bit of tougher meat on the end. The 6 is perfecto! Good... More

Our apologies for not posting this review until now but due to a close family bereavement certain reviews were overlooked. We greatly enjoyed our visit to this restaurant which is atmospheric but has absolutely fantastic steak. It is some of the best we have ever had and at reasonable prices. The same can be said of the wine list and... More

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
