We have been eating at Lee Roy Selmon's since it opened years ago. Upon their opening, staff, food, service and atmosphere were spot on and very consistent. What a refresher for a restaurant in this booming pop-up of a community. Fast forward to 2014. Is it that the area has become so saturated with businesses/restaurants and people that the quality...

We went to Lee Roy Selmon's on a weekday evening, non-season so we only had to wait a minute or two to be seated. The pulled pork was delicious! The waitress was great. I could not finish the pulled pork so I had the waitress box it for me. She nicely asked if I would like to take some of... More

I usually hate sports bar food BUT the Sarasota location on Cooper Creek Blvd is the exception. All the usual "comfort foods" and done very well. Been there 5 times in past 2 months and everything we ordered was very good. Large nachos platters, ribs, burgers, pulled pork, chicken and fish dishes all were very, very good. Service has always...

We try to avoid chains while on vacation however hubby and I decided to eat last minute and picked here since we were close by. Hostess was friendly. Seat was dirty, table was clean. We first didn't like the menu choices. Didn't seem like a lot of options compared to other sport bars. We decided to go with a light... More

We arrived with the whole family. Ten of us in total. Our waiter was great. There was so much confusion among us we evening caused a spilled tray of beverages. But, our waiter was great. He got the mess cleaned up, took our order and delivered everything ordered from the kitchen.

Ate dinner at this restaurant while on travel to the Sarasota area. Beer was cold which in a hot climate is always nice. Started the meal with a cup of the gumbo. While not authentic Louisiana Gumbo, it was delicious. Next trip I'll get the bowl. Main course was a Monster Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich with fries. It was excellent.... More

Service was great, nice atmosphere. Had a lunch meeting with a decent size group. Staff was very accommodating. Had the brisket plate, being a BBQ junkey I thought it was pretty average. A lot of lean beef on top covering the fatty slices from the top of the brisket. BBQ sauce was definitely above average. All in all I would... More

It seems as if the food quality has slipped. We went several times and I was displeased with the preparation. It seems like all of the sides are pre-prepared in large batches and heated up day after day until they are used up. Not easy to describe but dry and not fresh. Im not sure I will return.

We went here for Mother's Day. It was not that crowded, it was just right for us. The food was good. A little pricey compared to other chain restaurants. The gumbo is good and of course, the fried green tomatoes.

Its always nice to go back to a favorite place you haven't been to in awhile, and have the server not only remember your name but your drink order as well. Our server Missy B made us feel welcome and comfortable. She was pleasant, funny and efficient. Our order was perfect and the entire experience couldn't have been better. Always... More
