Just plain awful shrimp fettuccine with shells mixed in mushy pasta. I literally choked cause I did not see the shells on the shrimp that was mixed into pasta. All the Alfredo sauce leaked in the bag. No seasoning and incredibly bland. Worst tasteless garlic...bread I ever ate, made out of bottom of hamburger bun. I was given an onion cheese steak with mostly soggy onions, soggy bell peppers, with a very small portion of meat. Bread was soft and there was a boatload of cheese. With very little meat. Bread was BIG and long, only needed 1/4 of bread cause there was so little meat. The only thing that tasted like it was supposed to, was the French fries, but I had to drive back to get them as they were left out of the order. When I asked for them, I had to wait on a manager who said "I did not charge you for french fries!" She gave them to me without argument, when I responded, "Yes you did." I should have expected missing items because the man before me was missing his okra, and she told him it was in he bag. He had never walked outside. So, she then she told him "it is in the bag" twice without even looking. He had to tell her a couple of times. She inspected his bag and gave him his okra, that was sitting on the counter, just like my fries. Her tone when responding about missing items was sharp, authoritative, and dismissive (like I gave you an answer now it is your turn to leave). Not sure she is aware of how she comes across when she is wrong. She never said "oops, sorry, my bad." She let the man know that he wasn't charged for the fries they had mistakenly put in his bag. I was like - come on lady you can't be serious with that response, he had to wait on you to decide to believe him, but only after you verified he wasn't lying to you. And, he had placed a big order and had to make a couple of trips to the car. Come on lady, were you really going to take the French fries back? Just say "I am so sorry, I dont know where my head is today." Or, "My bad it has been a long day." She did not make me produce a receipt as my receipt fell as I walked in. It was in the computer so she saw it there. She was really nice before I asked for the fries. Then, she was in the back when I returned for the missing fries, maybe she was on break. I had been gone maybe three minutes. She did not seem happy about having to give them to me. I did tip the lady a dollar, as she seriously seemed over worked and under paid. Stress getting to her maybe. This was my second visit and it made one hell of an impression on me. Been in Sarasota seven years, drive past every day for work and going home. Several years ago I had fries oysters, that were a little fishy, and I had not gone back. Summary: relatively low prices (small shrimp but a bunch of noodles / big bread and minimal meat on sandwhich). Place seems clean, and staff is very friendly. Food was very subpar, but somewhat inexpensive. I just did not see value, and I was not expecting amazing food either. It is like a fast food place. The pasta was 10 and the sandwich was 8, fries were 2 bucks. Recommendations: I did this review because I had eaten some of the cheese steak and was going to just let it go as dont go back, but the shells on the shrimp compelled me to just write about the experience. I did not say anything to the staff and want nothing from them. I just would not go back. I would suggest if you are going to eat there, only order whatever the reviewers say is good. That cheesesteak is nothing like the picture. To management, I would suggest removing items from the menu. Because it obviously is a cost containment strategy to cut corners. But, in this case there were too many corners cut to say there is any value in the food items for what you pay. Based on the low quality, I would lean toward saying the food is moderately overpriced. Finally, If you dont have time to take the shrimp shells off, serve them on the side. Dont mix in in the food. If my kid choked to death, I would sue you.More

Andrew - an employee there has fired me, called me afterwards, apologised and asked me to return. The next day I asked for more shirts at the beginning of the shift and was fired at the end of the day. He also wouldn't give me...my checks until I returned the shirts I had.More

The food was pretty good but there were missing items from our order and they claimed to be out of tarter sauce at a seafood establishment.

After driving by this place every weekday, I finally stopped in for lunch. I got the 20 shrimp with a side of black beans and yellow rice. Everything was cooked well and 20 shrimp was way too much for me to eat. My boyfriend got...the gyro with a salad. The gyro was OK and the salad was just lettuce, a single cherry tomato, and a slice of onion. We got our food very quickly. I would stop in again for a quick bite in the future.More

Came for quick, early lunch. Got the gyro combo with lamb ( they also have chicken ). It came with a small soda and choice of side for under 10 bucks. I chose the rice and beans but you can also a salad or fries....If you only want the sandwich it is $6.99. They give you plenty of meat and a large portion of rice. Service was good.More

We stopped here after reading some reviews. We thought we were in the wrong area at first as it looked more like a neighborhood with few businesses around. Glad we went in, great food for reasonable prices. Spent about $48 for a family of 4....We had cajun shrimp, chicken tenders, fried okra, hushpuppies, and more. The okra was was perfect as was the shrimp. We preferred scampi over fried but both were good.More

Unlike others, we experienced friendly and prompt service. We placed our order at the counter for a traditional gyro combo. It was under $10. My gyro had a wonderful taste, and the meat was plentiful. The pita was fresh, and the sauce was thick and...delicious. I chose a salad which had very fresh romaine, grape tomatoes and thinly sliced onions [the way I like them]. What was especially great was the dressing which was a vinaigrette with oregano and feta! My companion just had a milk shake. Thick and under $3.00. The restaurant was very clean, and we had a very enjoyable quick dinner.More
