As locals for over 10 years, we have patronized this restaurant many times. Normally, we are satisfied with both the service and the food, but this trip was HORRIBLE!!!...The service at the bar was typically friendly and attentive. The food on the other hand was BAD. We both got the gyros, to go, as is our norm. We've had them... More

Hi Peggy, Sorry to hear about the gyros that night. I'm glad the gyros you have had in the past here were good. Next time you visit ask for me and I'll make it right. Also for the future try and review the good times as well! Happy Holidays! More

Nice place, good and fast service, food was ok, the decor inside alas is quite disapointing , fake art deco, very bad taste...the place could be great if simply adapted to west coast florida style?.the house has a lot of potential and certainly could be more attractive...the view on the canal and the terrasse are definitively an asset if you...

Honestly I didn't even consider trying salmon let alone liking it- but this blackened dish is the best we've ever had anywhere in the area ( maybe the world) Of course once you've had it- you'all crave it. Now the decor needs updating- but the food is always good. The canal view in the back is relaxing too. One of... More

Sat by the window so we could see the water.... had a great server. Wine was $3 per glass before 6:00. We both had the coconut shrimp, fries and salad... it was really good. I have never seen such huge shrimp... my guest had to bring two of hers home as she just couldn't eat them all! I have been... More

Many dishes on the menu are very good and the owners are very much in attendance, checking to see if people are happy. The drinks are fairly priced. The bartenders might as well being working at Hooters as the 20 somethings seem to dress to get tips - low, low tops, tight jeans, etc., which appeals to guys but seems... More

What a great experience! We have been welcomed by the owner, very professional friendly, we had probably the best seat in the restaurant with the best view ....it was just amazing! We took different appetizers and they were just good as the service!! To make it short, If you are close by Nokomis, Venice or Sarasota, you HAVE to try... More

My wife and I along with another couple decided to try the WaterFront Too restaurant. In the past we had heard mixed reviews but recently heard several good reviews. Out of the four of us, one meal was really bad. One person had the grouper special and she said it was very good. Another person had the steak and he... More

Group dinner. Large banquet table filled up. So, eight of us sat at two 4-top side tables next to the group table. But, everyone else, including those at the other 4-top got service, drinks, salads... and we still had no service at all. I flagged down a server who said she would "check on it." Finally a server showed up... More

So this place has been around a while and we pass by it all the time. And it is often quite busy in the winter months (our "season"). The outside is very unappealing and unattractive. No curb appeal whatsoever which is the reason why we've driven by and never felt the urge to stop in. We went out on a... More
