Food was top-notch. We ordered the BLTA salad, Brussels sprouts, burnt-end tacos, and scallops. We would order everything again upon our return visit. The jalapeño corn “risotto” and tacos were especially tasty. I want the recipes! The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Very reasonably...priced too.More

Fantastic brunch with great cocktails and delicious breakfast awesomeness. I would eat here every Sunday, if I could. Everyone in our party of four raved about each of their meals.

We came here for dinner with family, a party of 8. We had a reservation and were seated immediately at a large table. The menu is unique, and I think offers a little something for everyone's tastes. We started off with cornbread and strawberry/peach butter...(yum!). It was moist and the sweetness of he butter was a great compliment. We also had the pulled pork potato skins and the cheesy tots as apps. Both were excellent! For entrees, we ordered the cast iron chicken enchiladas (very good), meatloaf (raved about), scallops (very good), fried chicken (tender, with some spice to the breading), and chicken and french toast, which I believe was the most raved about dish. the french toast was out of this world good! Next time it will be my order. Somehow it remained crispy on the outside and gooey with the syrup on the inside and was just so full of flavor. This is definitely on our list now of places to frequent! One complaint I'd have was the kids menu was small. That isn't usually an issue for us, but my nephew is here with us and it only had 3 things on it. He ended up ordering a burger from the regular menu so all was good, but I could see that as a problem for some picky eaters. I will say, service was a little slow, I see others have mentioned that, but she was also very nice and took good care of us. The food was so good, I don't think we noticed much and we were busy catching up anyway. Overall, come here! Support a local business and enjoy a delicious, reasonably priced meal!More

The experience here was nice. I had the meatloaf which was good. The service was a little slow so expect to take your time and enjoy it. That being said, the server was very nice and did a good job. I would go back again...if I was in the area.More

This is a diner styled lunch place. They make a decent tuna sandwich. The restaurant is clean and the service is good.

We saw this restaurant highly touted in Sarasota magazine last year as one of the best in town. The menu looked great so we gave it a try. Upon arrival we were a little surprised to see very few patrons, while the restaurant right next...door, (I think it was Mediterrano) was very busy. We were seated right away at one of the many empty tables. What can I say. The food was actually very good, especially the "Made" Mac-n-Cheese. Also enjoyed the chicken enchiladas, the Made burger and the double-dipped fried chicken. The drinks, while a little pricey, were also very good. We give it only 3 stars because dining there was just depressing. It was like a bland hotel bar, with Muzak-like music playing and a few drunk girls being loud at the bar. The decor was blah, the service, while not bad, was blah, the music was blah. I felt like I was eating in a beige hotel lobby. For dessert, the only offering was ice cream sandwiches. Just...odd. Part of the pleasure of dining is the experience of being there, with the food being important but not the only thing. The chef is good. Whoever they are, they ought to find an establishment worthy of their talents.More

We really appreciate your comments and thoughts on our food and cocktails. I do feel your response during a pandemic, and not knowing what we’ve gone through is harsh and disrespectful. Our neighbors have been there close to 30 years we’ve been here almost 8,...More
