A Very Nice Surprise!

My husband and I stopped by The City Hall Cafe on our drive back to Sarasota from the keys. The people were so friendly and recommended some great dinner choices. The shrimp pasta was terrific and the shrimp was huge and delicious. We really enjoyed our dinner there.

Love the City Hall, but had the spaghetti and meatballs and could tell they were frozen. Love the Chicken Marsala, but this was not good at all. And please tell me what is wrong with the red head server??? Such a terrible attitude and we were nothing but polite to her, went back the other night for a glass of... More

Best spot for lunch! I love the shrimp tacos, philly, all the soups are awesome. Tons of beer to choose from. Great place and great staff.

My family and I stopped in for lunch on the way back to MIA for our last meal in the Keys this trip. City Hall Cafe didn't disappoint! The sandwiches and salads were fresh and well prepared. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Good airy cafe atmosphere and the prices were reasonable. We'll stop in again next trip. Highly... More

Beats heck out of the fast food chains (which are not real plentiful in this part of Florida anyway.) Had a Philly cheesesteak that was pretty good and the chili cheese dog on the other side of the table looked good too.

We took entire family of 12 to eat here one night. They were great to accommodate us with great service and good food. The special for night was Fish tacos for $10.95. These were great! Dinner menu is a little pricey when you are taking out 12 people to eat, but it is great they offer the lunch menu for... More

Such friendly service by the pretty blond girl at the register when we walked in! Also she was fast with the service. The chicken Ceasar wrap was incredibly good with lots of perfectly seasoned, grilled, white meat chicken stuffed inside. My hubby had the roasted turkey and dill havarti wrap and it was also really, really good. I had the... More

As recent transplants to the Keys, we are seeking out new places we hadn't tried previously. CHC was on our list anyway, due to its good local reputation. We were running an errand next door, and it was lunchtime, so... Service was fast and friendly, and the outdoor tables were nice despite the closeness of highway traffic, which we hardly... More
