Gecko's is a small chain of really super casual food restaurants in Sarasota and Bradenton, and is very family oriented but lots of fun for adults, sports fans, grandparents and any other mix of people. Prices are reasonable with good specials, (it's always Happy Hour, too!) and the food... Yummy!! Try their homemade potato chips and always ask for recommendations from their extremely friendly staff. Just in case you're wondering we go to four different Gecko's locations and they are all good, so Enjoy - it's a good experience!

Met with some friends that suggested this place. Sat out on the sidewalk and had an enjoyable, tasty lunch. Pleasant, attentive service and fun place to people-watch. My salad was very good and fresh and a healthy portion.

Service and food are excellent. Attentive staff from entering all the way through checkout. Good selection of sports and news on big screens. I had what i call the 'Reuben on a roll"- Pastrami on a pretzel roll sandwich. Excellent value and taste. MUST TRY- home made chips! Fast service for lunch.

This was a disappointing lunch for four. We were the first to arrive at 11AM and no one else showed until after 11:30AM. That should have been our first clue of what was to come. The server came to the table to take our order and I asked to be last since I had not yet chosen. She said I had to be the first since I was sitting at the #1 order seat and she could not take it any other way. I never heard of such a thing - how rude! Briefly, my spinach salad was a few chopped tomatoes, mushrooms and a pastelike dressing that was supposed to be 'warm bacon'. Another's chicken on a Caesar Salad was overdone, etc. Throughout, the server never came back to refill water glasses and was certainly did not show a friendly attitude. Perhaps this is how a 'grill and pub' treats its clientele, but we certainly will not return.

I have always liked Gecko's food, and I think they give an ample amount for the $. Prices are reasonable for families and friend gatherings. Good Happy Hour prices and great wings!
