“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

We have been to this restaurant with friends when on vacation this year but also my wife and I went last year when on vacation. A large restaurant with both a bar and restaurant. Wonderful steaks and excellent fresh sea-food. Each time I have eaten here I have left feeling well satisfied. The wine list I think is quite expensive but go on a Wednesday night when the wines are half-price! Definitely a bargain at that time. Each day they have specials which are dependent upon what could be sourced fresh. My friend had hogfish which we had never heard of before. Apparently is quite difficult to get because it is found around wrecks and so difficult to catch on a line but can be speared. It was excellent. The rest of us had steaks and grouper. For us this is a must visit on Wednesday nights when we are there on vacation.

“Good but not great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We waited for over an hour. We can handle that.

We were the only guests seated in a side room with an entire wedding party beside us. It was uncomfortable as if we were intruding.

Service was excellent. Salads were below average. Steak was fantastic. Shrimp was good. Sides were good. Scale of 1-10 overall I give a 7.5. It's a good place but some of the reviews are a bit too gracious in my opinion.

“Middle Grounds is a triple threat; it excels at food, wine and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

The hog fish and Mediterranean sea bass were both incredible entrees. The Conundrum is a great intervarietal white and offered at a good price. Our server Joe was attentive, but not intrusive. We had a great night and will definitely return.

“Very Nice Upscale Dining In Treasure Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

We enjoyed a nicer vacation meal here. My wife's seafood special was very nice and a huge portion. My steak was perfectly prepared. James, our server, took very nice care of us and our 2 yr old son.

If you're looking for something like a Stonewood Grill in Treasure Island, this is it.

“Overall the best on the gulf coast !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

The service was impeccable as was the food we experienced.
Middle Grounds decor was modern yet very tasteful, a 400 gallon aquarium really catches the eye as you enter the dinning room. The restaurant is also family orientated, on certain days children eat free ! The music in the dinning room, also very good taste not like dinner in an elevator. The service was also impeccable.
I can honestly say everything was great from entry to exit .
