“Best Happ[y Hour in Sarasota”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Great Happy Hour selection Crab Sandwich with Zuchini fries are delicious.Steak salad and Filet Sandwich are very good. All plates are the size of a good lunch for 7 bucks. Couple that with some descent wines for 7 bucks and hyou have got a great value.

“Consistently Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We have dined at this Sarasota location innumerable time and the steak is phenominally delicious. It is tender, abundantly flavorful and expertly prepared. In our opinions it is the best steak place in all of sothwest Florida.

The service is both attemntive and professional, accompanied by a nice ambience.

“God, I love Ruth Chris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

I was raised in New Orleans (Metairie, to be exact) where the ruth chris classy enterprise first began
- the 'powers-to-be' can be very pleased with this restaurant just south of Sarasota:
--nice atmosphere, as to be expected
--timely and knowledgeable attention by servers and (repeat And) supervisors
--best medium-rare rib eye and filet mignon - anyplace !!! (not at Morton`s , not smith and wolinsky (sp?, etc,)
--and wifie says their Chopped Salad' is her favorite anywhere - I agree

this is not a 'western sizzler' dining establishment - it costs more - but,, my friends --"you get what you pay for !" --- we go south to longboat key every winter - no way would wifie and I miss this restaurant

“Happy Hour drinks and Food are the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

This review focuses on the Happy Hour in the bar. It is on the 'high tops' and they fill up quickly. We got the last four seats available at a table for 6 and happily shared it with two nice ladies. Food served at this time go from burgers to prime rib sandwiches to seafood delights all under $10 and drinks at reasonable prices were exotic. The four us had burgers, perfectly done served with French fries. These were not typically shaped but rather a 'thick' burger on an appropriate sized bun. This allowed for the 'medium rare' to come out perfect. They are priced at $7 and have now in my mind become the 'place in our area' to get the best burger. Delightful polite and prompt service by a first class server. Never had to flag down for a drink refill, she just kept appearing at the right time. Another great value early dining experience.
