Total atmosphere was excellent. I hosted a party of 5 and all were impressed with the level of service and quality of food offerings. We’re new to the area and this has become 1 of our favorite restaurants.

Waiter forgot a lot of info. They delivered salad with wrong dressing on it when it was also supposed to be on side. Then forgot to bring right one back. 80 dollar crab plate was just 3 broken up crabs on white plate, nothing else.

I keep ordering the shrimp and grits and the lobster and crab bisque. They are both wonderful. Next time I'm going to force myself to try something new.

Always a great experience at Connors! The prime rib and crab cakes were wonderful. Had a specialty cocktail...which was delicious and beautiful, and the best part of our experience was the service from our waiter Joe. He knew in detail everything on the menu and did a very eloquent job explaining the different menu options. Thanks again, Joe!

The food is exceptional for the price. My guest and I have ate at Connors several times and it doesn't seem the menu ever changes. The noise level is a little high in the main dining room, but we set out at the patio area and the open doors helped a lot.

My wife and I have been to Connor’s many times for lunch. Her dad was visiting for Thanksgiving & we decided to go for dinner. I had made reservations a couple days before and we were seated immediately. Joe was our server on this occasion and service started out great. I started with the Whiskey Burst cocktail that was delivered quickly and was delicious. My wife ordered the lobster crab bisque (their specialty) and her entree was cilantro-lime grilled shrimp with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. This was 8 beautifully grilled large shrimp. My father-in-law is always looking for a great Rueben sandwich so that’s what he ordered with fries. I had recommended that to him and I will say it is probably the best I’ve ever had. I ordered the pork tenderloin with cherry Demi-glaze and apple chutney. This came with a baked potato and soup, so I ordered the soup of the day which was their delicious prime rib chili. It’s a little spicy but it’s an entire meal in one bowl! The pork was sliced in about 12 or 13 slices with Demi-glaze ladled on top with the chutney on the side. Very tender and perfectly cooked and seasoned! Joe got quite busy as his tables filled up so we had to wait for him to box up our leftovers and get the dessert orders. We were going to a show after so we had to get Joe to bring our bill before dessert was served. My father-in-law ordered the chocolate mousse cake which was rich and delicious. But the star was definitely the Bananas Foster I ordered! They make them to order with a thick layer of banana bread, sliced bananas in that decadent sauce and vanilla ice cream! Oh my, so delicious! I may have to go there once just to get the Bananas Foster again! For a great dinner out and a superb dining experience, I highly recommend Connor’s.

It was my son's birthday so naturally we celebrated with dinner at Connor's. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. We have had only wonderful experiences there. Our waitperson, John, was perfect - always near if we needed anything but never intrusive. Only the best wait staff walk this line and he did admirably! My son had the crab legs and I had the small (ha!) prime rib. They were both done to perfection. We thought we were too full for dessert but John must have sensed there was a celebratory reason we were there and treated us to a delicious strawberry shortcake to share for dessert! We soon found we had just enough appetite left to demolish it. Thanks to Connor's and to John for an amazing dinner experience. Connor's and it's staff are the best!!

I marked off on food only for the asparagus. Too thick and somewhat woody.
probably shouldn't be offered out of season

Our server was well briefed as to the nuances of the steak selections and of the taste difference between wet and dry aging.

The steaks are one of the best I have ever eaten. I had Prime Rib, medium rare, and it was so tender it almost melted in my mouth.

For an upscale venue, I thought it’s a bit too noisy, though.

We were there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and the Strawberry Shortcake was fresh and has a very crisp taste. A great way to finish our meals.

Our waitress was Kelly and she had the patience of a saint. My sister could be difficult for when ordering as she has lots of “I can’t eat this or that”! Kelly was wonderful and everything came out perfect. Sarah, restaurant manager, is always a pleasure to talk with.

My only suggestion would be to get the issue with tables of 4+ figured out so those can be reserved via Open Table. Having to call the restaurant for a party of 5 is a hassle especially when no one is available in off-hours. Hire a VA for $4 per hour to provide 24/7 customer support. The restaurant should be able to handle larger party reservations via the app. If not, make adjustments to your dining room seating to accommodate what the marketplace is demanding.

Four of us had lunch and two ordered the prime rib sandwich (again!). Both opted for sweet potato fries. Another ordered the grilled shrimp and substituted coleslaw for broccoli. The fourth ordered the ahi tuna salad. All of us raved about our choices, the one who ordered the coleslaw considers herself a “connoisseur” of slaw and swears this is the best she’s ever had. The ahi tuna was cooked to perfection atop enough salad for at least two. Apparently the prime rib sandwich is the “go-to” for two of the diners. Our server Kelsey was attentive, personable, and was a welcome addition to our give and take. Of course we shared the strawberry shortcake for dessert.

One of the nicest aspects of Connors is the welcoming attitude of everyone involved in the dining experience. The smiles and greetings are always special.

From drinks to appetizers and my ribeye was very good. However my wife ordered a filet mignon that was on the tough side and also had grizzle in it. Something you should not have in a filet.

We did say we would go again because the rest of our dinner was very good but to order a filet mignon again, that is not going to happen.

Fantastic restaurant - wonderful, knowledgeable, well-trained service; delicious food; pleasant ambience. Especially good for special occasions, customers are treated to a scrumptious strawberry shortcake that’s large enough to share. My favorite steakhouse in Sarasota!

Both our steaks, ribeye and prime rib were overcooked. The manager Nick apologized and had new steaks cooked. Problem is that our meal took twice as long then we had to hurry and eat and weren't able to enjoy our meal as much. Side dish bowl was also dirty...so it wasn't a great experience. Waiter was very apologetic and attentive.
Not the best night for Connors.
