Shore restaurant is our expression of a mid-century, al-fresco coastal eatery. Creative recipes are our specialty, combined with local favorites, all served in our open air dining space. From your first sip of our signature cocktail, to your last bite of our Key West Shrimp and Scallop Risotto, the entire Shore experience is nothing short of a beach day makeover, with laughter, cool vibes, and delicious eats.

Awesome experience as always at Shore. The food is fantastic, and the service is always good. My wife and I love the ambience, and always enjoy bringing friends and family to a new place for their experience. Everyone loved it.

We enjoyed out meal very much but also enjoy relaxing over cocktails and dinner. We were done with a very fine meal in less than an hour so we felt like they were maybe trying to turn the table over quickly. We resolved the issue be have after dinner drinks on their patio

Delightful contemporary ambiance with youthful flare. Excellent food and service, as we sat on a high top overlooking St. Armands circle, our third visit over this year and last, and we will certainly return.

We go to Shore Diner quite a bit and have done so since moving here 3 years ago. Never had bad food or service. The location and atmosphere is perfect morning, noon or night. All the friends we've taken have loved it too.

The bar service was excellent, although drinks were pricey in my opinion. $47 with tip for four drinks. The table service, food and ambiance were outstanding. We had salmon, branzino, shrimp with risotto and carpaccio salad. All were excellent. The wine selection was also very good.

Shore is located 2nd floor above clothing/accessories store in tasteful St Armand’s Circle, Sarasota. Maitre’d checked us in, we were early. Nice decor, indoor/outdoor seating areas, bar. Good table outside with view out over street. Fairly busy for Thursday evening. Waiter excellent (Sean?), good humor, attentive. Food pretty good. Enjoyed ourselves. Would def go back.

Always enjoy location and ambiance as well as service. This time however, the food was less than usual. Snapper had unpleasant skin attached and was substandard. My wife had a directed entree that lacked flavor. I also think it presumptive of the chef that a server must be summoned for salt and pepper. I don’t think I will return this winter.

The food was excellent. Well prepared and INTERESTING. Has a wonderful "vibe" that makes it feel special.

Problem is that other restaurants are no longer appealing!

The chef is a "keeper."

We make Shore our first and last stops on our annual visits to St Armands. Over last year and this year we've probably been there six times so far. Always a pleasure. Eventually, I suppose you always have a bad experience everywhere, someday, but this place has never disappointed us. Go.

This was our 2nd visit to Shore but our first for dinner. The ambiance is lovely and our server was delightful. We all enjoyed our food - the branding dish was particularly outstanding as was the cauliflower ginger soup. The Blood Orange Margarita was also quite good. We will definitely return to Shore.

Wonderful food but very off service. Our food came out before our wine because, we were told, they had no wine glasses. When we ordered more wine it was never served, again because they had no glasses! And no one bothered to tell us...we had to chase down the waitress. Disconcerting that they couldn't iron out such a basic issue but there didn't seem to be anyone in charge. The food makes me want to give it another chance but I'm not hopeful about service.
