“Beautiful restaurant and Inn. Breakfast was a wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I had been to Boca Grande several times but never had been inside the Gasparilla Inn. We went for breakfast. It was elegant! Outstanding service! The menu offered every breakfast item anyone could want. The bread basket we were offered had a beautiful assortment of rolls, muffins and sweets. My fresh fruit was delicious! The french toast was delicious. After breakfast we toured the beautiful Inn. It is almost 100 years old and is absolutely beautiful!

“Old Florida charm with new Florida food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Well this is the second time at this place and it did not disappoint. They greeted us at the door and had a lovely window seat for us. The lady remembered us from last time. Their menu changes with chef's creations so don't expect to get the same food. I got the grouper and it was sensory delight on the palate. It was beautifully plated and the spinach was the best I ever had. Many fresh Florida vegetables and that wonderful white asparagus. My husband got the tenderloin and it was cooked perfectly, plated beautifully and again a wonderful tasting to wet your palate. The Caesar salad is a must try! Creative but oh so delicious and I love the shrimp cocktail. Dessert was delicious and each dish more wonderful than the rest. We will be back but they close soon for 10 weeks, so we will be back when we are back in our Florida house in October.

“very, very, nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We had dinner at the Gasparilla Inn on Boca Grande last night.
The food was excellent, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was excellent. You must dress for dinner, which is a nice change. Had a window seat overlooking the gulf course. We were treated with dignity and respect.
Would return again. A very special place !

“Amazing Grouper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

What a beautiful place to have a romantic occasion or to celebrate something special. You are treated royally from the moment they seat you until you walk out the door. The choice of bread is wonderful. The shrimp cocktail was delicious and the Caesar salad is very uniquely presented but tastes just wonderful. The chef must be creative and amazing. The black grouper was the largest and best grouper I have ever had presented over mashed potatoes and white and green asparagus which were cooked perfectly. Hubby had the filet and it was just the right size and tender, no waste and delicious while prepared perfectly along with another stunning presentation. We both got desserts and the pastry chef is amazing as well. I had the chocolate tart and husband the peach.........both different and delectable. We will be back. On the down side menu selection can be small and not every one will be able to find something as menu seems to change daily.
