Probably the best Grouper I have had...and I have eaten many of them. Everything about this place was fantastic....except the wait. Call ahead and make reservations...we did not and had to wait 1.5 hours to get in...but even then-worth it. Everything was excellent and I am saddened that we are leaving or I would have gone again in a heart beat.

We cannot say enough about our experience at Middle Grounds Grill! Each year we celebrate our anniversary with a special dinner and after searching the menus of the numerous restaurants in the area we were impressed by the array of options Middle Grounds offered. Instead of the traditional dinner routine we opted to do a tour of their appetizer menu so we could sample all the restaurant had to offer. I would highly recommend this approach to anyone who wants to truly enjoy a variety of tasting opportunities. Our dinner included the special Stuffed Shrimp, Artichoke Dip, Tuna Tacos, Lemon Infused Crab Cakes, Creole Egg Roll and for dessert we shared the Warm Fried Cheesecake which was divine and sealed the experience as one of the best anniversary dinners we have ever had. The thought of just ordering an entrée off the menu now seems boring. Even though the restaurant was busy, our fantastic server Jenn never made us feel rushed and was very attentive. She made wonderful suggestions and was definitely another reason the night was so successful. The next time we come to Florida we will certainly be back!

We have never been here even though we live nearby. This was our first and last visit. The menu is totally over priced for the quality of the food that you get. To add insult to injury, they have a split plate fee. That's ridicules. They tout how fresh the fish is, yet the piece that my wife ordered had a fishy taste. Obviously it wasn't fresh. Service was so so. Totally geared toward the tourist. They don't care if the locals come back or not, cause there's another tourist coming to town tomorrow. Won't be back.

Have been here twice, good food both times. Menu getting a little dated, but definitely some yummy options. On our second visit, we opted for dining room seating. The room was less than 1/2 full, the hostess tried to seat us at a tiny 2-top by the kitchen door...we declined and she said they'd get another table ready. Took about 5 minutes, but was worth the wait. Our server Andrea, was great! We had an app, then salads and entrees, she timed them out perfectly, was very helpful. We mentioned that it was our anniversary, and at the end of our meal surprised us with their special pancake dessert. We'll definitely be back!

Great service and wonderful food! I would recommend calling ahead for reservations. We did not do this, it was a very busy weekend, but they were able to seat us on the outdoor patio.
