Not much was open on the island this weekend, but Temptation was open and pretty busy, too. We had never been there, but will go back. Service was good. Food was excellent. The fried oysters and fried New Orleans shrimp were great...nice salads, some good mashed potatoes with pepperoni chunks (a first!), and fresh asparagus. Coconut cream pie was great, too! All in all, a wonderful meal!

Took a day trip over to Boca Grande today and were lucky to find the Temptation Restaurant open for lunch. It's a quaint little "Old Florida", no frills restaurant with very friendly people who know their stuff. We asked for recommendations and were given the excellent suggestion to try the Bronzed Grouper served over sliced Brussels Sprouts with bits of prosciutto and a little quality melted parmesan. Would love to have the recipe for times we can't get over there. The fish was impeccably fresh and cooked to perfection; moist and just until it flaked and topped with a great sauce, and the vegetables were crisp and well seasoned. We felt like we hit the jackpot - the perfect lunch. We WILL be back.

This was our first time staying on Boca Grande. The food and service were excellent. The Strawberry salad is a must! I've been craving it ever since. The price was very expensive. It came out to about $55/person with no alcohol or appetizers, just salads and entrees. I don't mind paying when the food is so good as it was here.

This was a nice quiet quaint place with cloth table settings. Our server was on top of it. He did an awesome job. Will definitely return.

Visited Boca Grande on Saturday, July 12, 2014. Stopped in Temptation for lunch about 2PM. Waitress Jean was terrific! She explained the menu well and then answered our questions about Boca Grande, giving us a town map, and helping us with ideas of things to do. I ordered a caesar salad with shrimp and my wife got a regular burger. My portion was dinner size and the jumbo shrimp were perfectly grilled. My wife's burger was one of the best she or I (I got a taste) had ever had. They have a reputation for the best burgers in Boca and they were right. Bun toasted just right and really flavorful beef. It reminded me of In-and-Out burger but without the sauce. We will definitely go back to Boca for the burgers if nothing else.

The restaurant has a bar area open later than the restaurant which closed after lunch now.

Be advised - their are off-season hours in Boca now. Many restaurants close. Temptation will close August 9th until October, for example.
