If you like sports bars you'll probably like this place. If not, then you won't. Nothing really special about it to get me to go back there.

Thank Peter W

I'm sorry to hear that you weren't wowed on your visit, Peter. Yes we have a sports bar theme in our bar area but our award winning menu, entrees and service make us much more. Since you are in Rotonda on our doorstep, I would welcome your feed back as to how we might further minimize the "Sports Baar" imiage .It's helpful to know what guests think, and we'll certainly look into ways to give you an even better experience on your next visit. Wishing you the best, and I appreciate your business.

Take care,
Mike Brady

Joanne took care of us well from start to finish. Steamed clams, prime rib. A fine dinner. We hadn't been to Prime Time, but had a fine meal and will be back.
The house wasn't full and that was fine with us. They had steamers as a starter and they were great. Tender, flavorful and a lot of them, not over or undercooked - just right. Served with drawn butter, lemon, and broth, the clams were an unexpected treat. The chips and salsa that came out with our drinks were crispy, thin and just right as well. The prime rib, the 10 oz serving, was delicious, served exactly as ordered. The meat was well marbled and my cut, rare, was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The medium cooked serving my wife had was just as good.
In a town where it seems every restaurant serves a lot of fish and seafood, it was nice to find a place that leans its menu toward meat eaters.

Thanks so much for visiting while in town, Bill! It sounds like you and your wife made some great choices from the menu, and I'm glad that you enjoyed Joanne's service, too. She'll be pleased to hear your comments! I appreciate you taking the time to write about your visit, and I look forward to seeing you the next time you're in town.

All the best,

We have been in Florida since December, and we wanted a steak for dinner. We see lots of cars in the parking lot every time we go by, so we stopped in last evening about 7:30. We were seated right away, had great service, and we both ordered the NY strip steak, baked potato, salad with "house" dressing (peppercorn ranch), and drinks. The meal arrived "hot", and the steak was tender....
The furnishings were dated, decorated somewhat Mexican style, and the 12 oz NY steak was $22, did not include any other vegetables or even bread with the meal....the steak choices were a 6 oz filet, or the 6 oz NY or 12 oz NY. Other steak variations had sauce or blue cheese added. First time, we wanted to order "basic", and the dinners tasted good. The waitress said bbq ribs were specialty of the house, saw some being served as well as Mexican dinner items.

Thanks for reaching out about your visit with us. However you leave me with the impression that you did not get complemantary chips & salsa, a soup or salad & potato or other side all of which come with our entrees and you were over charged for your New York steak which is $20.00. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed everything and hope I don't have a problem server who is working for themselves rather than the customer. We pride ourselves on offering quality at reasonable prices with fast, frendly service. If we have a problem please reach out and give us a call. We would like your next visit to be a 5 star one.
Thank You for taking the time to help make us better.

Sincerely,
Mike Brady

Lots of menu items, kid friendly, casual dress and perfectly cooked steak, crispy fish and chips. They don't take reservations, but we were seated pretty quickly after 7 PM. Service was attentive and friendly.
