Another place I go very time I am here. The half priced appetizers are worth the trip. Drink prices are good.

Friendly service! A little pricey but good and appealing to the eye. We were there on a Tuesday and had their 'Tuesday Tacos' which were excellent! We went back there one evening to have dessert. Recommend this restaurant!

Have ate here a few times and it's always pretty good. This visit wasn't quite as good - waitress brought the wrong wine and the food was pretty bland. To add to that the singer was terrible and was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk and we were sitting pretty far away from him. On a positive note... More

We tried this cool place and sat outside to enjoy the love music and ambience of the Village. We tried the peel and eat shrimp, calamari and beef brisket, all were tasty and were large portions. The service was very friendly and helpful on items to try, overall a very good place. We will go back again!

The Blue Que Island Grill offers a 2 for 1 Martini special. This in itself lured me in to their establishment. I am a martini connoisseur. But once I found out that they use the bottom of the bottom vodka to make their martinis, I was very disappointed and decided to pass. I went ahead and ordered a rum and... More

Great food and drinks at Happy Hour. Went with my girl friends and we were pleasantly surprised of the quality of food and drink. Great $5 martini's with top shelf vodka's.

We have been having such a wonderful time in Sarasota and commenting on how friendly everyone is. Unfortunately, we have now managed to find the one place here where it is not true. We stopped in for a happy hour cocktail and were definitely not happy. The hostess with the leastest sat us where we asked for just a cocktail... More

Yes... Another grill. Food was ok. Outdoor seating was nice and the music was good the night we were there. Service was good but overall this place is nothing special. The waffle fries were not terribly hot or fresh and the food came in a wire basket which looks cute but it means it's quite hard to cut through anything!
