Sporting News Grill
Ranked #664 of 1,051 Restaurants in Sarasota
Cuisines: American
Description: Located by the airport. Nothing within walking distance, but a short drive to shopping and beaches. The restaurant is located inside the Holiday Inn. The wait staff was very friendly, along with good food and service. The restaurant is very nice; with a number of flat screen tvs. There is a great outdoor area with a great fire pit, lounging area and tables right off the bar. Would go back again.

Not what you would think for a sports bar.
Wonderful gourmet food. Fantastic- Chef Darrell Mizell goes all out with the meals he creates. The 4 of us would be there every day for his lunch specials if we lived nearby.
A must go!!!!

Food was good, but don't go here if pressed for time. The breakfast buffet was good (eggs, sausage, oatmeal, potatoes, fruit, pastries)

I have been eating here for two years and have always loved the decor and the food. Yesterday. I came here with local coworkers who have lunch here once a week. Considering the restaurant is inside a holiday inn without a separate entry that's saying a lot. The bad is also very inviting. Love the.crab cakes.

Ate here new years eve after stumbling onto a good review online. We were seated in the bar without being offered a seat in the restaurant and were subjected to the boisterous patrons of the bar. Having said that the food was excellent. The burgers are great and the only negative comment was that the bread used on the cheese steak sandwiches was a hard roll instead of a hoagie bun making it more difficult to eat but tasty. The service was very good even though the bar tender who waits the tables in the area was busy. Next time we will sit outside by the fire.
