We stumbled upon this place while looking for something else. It was terrific. Our bartender, BK, was a pleasure! The food was amazing - we shared the potato skins to start and the shared the fish sandwich. Glad we did because portions were more than...ample and delicious. We’ll definitely return when in the area again.More

This was a very comfortable local, neighborhood style pub with very friendly service, good food and reasonable prices. Fish and chips were delicious - huge portion! The onion and brie burger, outstanding. We were there first thing Sunday as they opened. It was soon half...full with locals who were known by the staff by name.More

The Brie and carmelized onion burger is the BEST!!!! The cole slaw is fresh, with just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. Salads are also terrific. This is our favorite pub style restaurant in SRQ. Food is consistently excellent.

We searched for a spot our first night in Sarasota and found this neighborhood gem. Great beer, and the menu was creative in the kind of way that you can’t quite decide which dish to try. We ended up with a salad and a burger...and both were great. We shall return!More

We loved this place so much we came here for dinner two of our three nights we were in Sarasota. The Brie burger and the Cottage pie were so good, I mean the best burger we’ve ever had. Everything is fresh. The beer selection is...great. They had it decorated amazingly for Halloween. Tom, (I hope that’s his name, if we got it wrong sorry) was so great to talk to. You can tell how much pride he has in his place. We will definitely be back everytime we visit Sarasota.More
