Good to be back...

Service at the bar is always excellent, however we have not been back in a year due to the food. Its a Friday night, cold weather and we just wanted to stay close to home. Height of the season did not help either. We decide to give Lee Roy's one more chance. Walk in and we found two seats at... read more

This is a good restaurant and offers a variety of food. I had a steak and loved it. There is a lot of parking. The service is wonderful

When we want to grab a casual bite, Leroy's is the place of choice. Burgers, bbq, salads, home cooking, it's all there. (No pizza). Everything is tasty, nice portions in a convivial sports bar atmosphere. Pulled pork, brisket, grits, greens a little taste of the old south adds a nice touch.

Slow service and food that was just not good. Pulled pork with jelly like substance on it instead of bbq sauce and yellow coleslaw. 1st and last visit for this one.

The food and atmosphere was the highlight of my visit to Lee Roy Selmon's restaurant. The food portions were huge, there are numerous televisions throughout the restaurant. The service was excellent and everyone was friendly. This restaurant is on my to do list whenever I'm in the Tampa area.

This is not a health food restaurant, unless you are really into Adkins. They make excellent ribs and barbecue. Have a great bar. Lots of TV screens for sports. A good selection of craft beers. What more could you want. Highly recommended.

We live in Sarasota and whenever people visit we usually recommend Lee Roy Selmon's. We know they will like the food, atmosphere and friendly people. They have lots of choices on the menu from burgers to an amazing salmon.

Being new to the area, we are always searching out new dining places to try. We have seen Lee Roy Selmon's as we passed by and decided to try it out. REALLY glad we did! We arrived prior to the dinner rush, so seating was open. We chose the covered outdoor patio. I had the "RIBS 2 WAYS". They were... More
