One of the best happy hours I have been to in along time. Dave and Woody made it happen! Excellent service. Even though the place was packed we never waited for anything. The lamb chops were to die for! It was nice to see management (Brandon) checking on each table to see if everything was ok. Win win happy hour. Good job!

Dinner...excellent. Service...excellent. Every attention to detail...prepare for an unrushed, leisurely dining experience. Plating is decorative...not just thrown on the plate. My only drawback...they advertise as dining with a sunset view...but you can only see the sunset if you are sitting at the bar. Literally. The tables are partitioned from the bar area, and face over the city...to the east. Fare...A+. Sunset View...F.

While on vacation me and the wifey went to this place quite a few times and were very pleased with it. The food was really good. In fact, my lovebug said that their grouper sandwich was the best sandwich she ever had, and she hadn't even been drinking when she said it. I had a bite and had to conclude it was awesome indeed. The Dunedog and Lidoburer were both very good as well. I have to say though that my favorite thing here was their coleslaw. It has a really nice balance of flavors and even a little spicy kick that makes it just fantastic. The one day I tried about half of their signature drinks and they were all pretty good. The honey jack lemonade in particular was memorable due to the fresh herb flavor.

My only gripe is that service was really slow the first time we went. There was about a 20 minute wait between getting menus and putting our order in and then about a 30 minute wait between getting our bill and leaving. Granted it was busy when this happened, but we still felt neglected. However every other time we were there was fine in that aspect.

We had a good meal at the Lido Beach Grill. The view overlooking downtown Sarasota was great. Our meals were very good. The staff was attentive and helpful.
