“Never fails to please”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We had such a good experience here last year, we decided to try it again, as soon as we got down to Florida for the winter. The owner's wife greeted us warmly, and I remarked how we had such a good meal there last year. We were seated promptly and courteously. To our surprise and delight, we were sent a complimentary order of fried calamari for the six of us. The calamari were so tender, they almost melted in your mouth. We all ordered the prime rib, which was cooked to perfection, and flavored delicately. The wine list was interesting, and affordable, and paired well with the food. The creme brulee' was almost to die for.

“Tired, old, boring”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

At five o'clock, this place is jammed. At 8, this place is empty. It's an old early bird meat, one veg and a starch restaurant. If you like plain, go here. Food is fresh, just boring.

“Great Prime Rib”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The prime rib is excellent and the service is excellent! I enjoy the atmosphere--you can actually hear and converse with your dining companions.

I object to the reviews that state there are too many people over 70 eating there. These are grandparents that have worked hard and can afford to eat here and enjoy great food and friends!

Keep up the high standards you are known for, Rosebud's!!! I will be back again and again!

“Christmas Eve Treat!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We had a reservation for seven at 6:30 and were seated by 6:40 on one of the busiest days of the year. Server was wonderful! Food was even better. My daughter loves prime rib and said this was the best she ever had anywhere. Medium rare - just perfect! My youngest had the kids sirloin with pasta as a side. The steak was big for a kids meal and is was wonderful. The side of pasta was better than many italian restaurants. I had the bone in ribeye and it was done to a perfect medium rare. Others had the rack of lamb and filets and everyone raved about them. This is the best restaurant in the entire Sarasota area! We'll be back!
