“Wonderful service, Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

The food and service was EXCELLENT! The breakfast bufet was the BEST! Many, many choices and great quality! Endless fruit selection...blackberries, blueberries, melons; everything you can think of. The main breakfast offered multiple choices of great pancakes, french toast, eggs, meats, etc. Just wonderful! The dinner menu was limited, yet top notch, and something for every taste. Everyone in our group had nothing but positive to say about each and every meal!

“Sad, Old, Sorry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Would love to give this old gem something better but the fact is that it is tired, expensive and sad. "Nuff said."

“Wonderful Breakfast, Beautiful Historical Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

Breakfast at Gasparilla Inn is becoming a tradition for us on our Florida vacations. Not only is the food high quality and beautifully served, the ambiance cannot be topped. The beautiful Gasparilla Inn is like stepping back in time to an era where social graces and manners were king. Boca Grande Island was a playground for the rich and famous in the early part of the 20th century, and the inn reflects that spirit.

As a family that enjoys outdoor activities and hiking, this is a great place for our college guys to experience something different and refined. They are great fans of the stuffed french toast with mango salsa. The menu has the expected breakfast items, but each with something that makes it unique. I especially like the french toast served with orange butter and maple syrup. Sounds like an unlikely combination, but is wonderful to the palette. The breakfast buffet is very nice as well, but I suggest ordering off the menu and being served. It is part of the charm of this beautiful place.

Dinners are formal dress, but breakfast is casual resort wear and come as you are. The service is impeccable.

This is a great jump start to a day of exploring the island. There are great lunch spots, but I love to pack a picnic lunch for the Light House beach.
