Shore is one of our favorite restaurants in the circle. We always try and make a point to eat there when we visit. The food is amazing quality, everyone is so friendly and smiling (even behind the face masks!) and we love the open air environment of the place. Definitely worth a visit for a more upscale meal!

Lido Beach is our local escape from Tampa. My wife and I always enjoy the restaurants and scenes at St. Armand's Circle. However, having discovered Shore, we have encounter a gem of a restaurant. The appetizer was an unbelievable 100% crab cake which was succulently delicious. For main course we selected two handhelds, blacken grouper sandwich and grouper fish tacos which were amazingly tasty. The handhelds came with copious amounts of delectable truffle fries.

Eaten here multiple times. Our appetizers were the olive bread and the beet salad (one of the best items on their menu). My wife had the snapper and I had the ribeye special - both dishes were good but not exceptional. Our server was a bit off throughout the evening. He never offered anything other than tap water as I noticed other tables with bottled water. He also never told us about the specials for the evening, although the menu was on the table. It just wasn't the service that I've experienced at Shore in the past.

Visiting Sarasota for a little COVID relief, and had my birthday dinner at Shore. They’re so amazing. My girlfriends were even able to call ahead from out of town and purchase a bottle of wine for me. Amazing service, and delicious food!

The food was very good at Shore. We have dined out a fair amount in the last month and this is the first restaurant we dined that asked us to wear a mask walking up the steps and going to the bathroom. I found it absurd and to be shamed by a 17 year old host. The restaurant staircase is open air and not crowded so exposure to others is limited. It was an unpleasant experience. I probably won't return, there are enough great restaurants in the Sarasota area.

I didn’t think it was necessary to wear a mask from the bottom of the stairs until we were seated. Other than that, everything was 100% perfect!

WE were seated at the back of the restaurant at our request. However, the roof could not be opened, fear of rain, I guess....that made the noise level very bad. We asked to change our table because a table of at least 8 were next to us......Is that even allowed at this stage of reopening?Another large table arrived next to us. Food was great, service superb. Of course we will go back, but do something about the noise and those of us who are only four will then enjoy the experience of The Shore.

Far too many compliments to submit.

I’ve dined here a few times before so my expectations are always met. We took our family of 4 out to dinner, and our children devoured the fried chicken. Warmly greeted, always clean and sanitized, terrific cocktails, excellent food and the service is always outstanding. It’s nice to know that when the government asks restaurants to sanitize more and provide a bit more distance that you truly don’t see a huge difference because the place is always spotless and the tables are always a bit far apart so people can enjoy.

I highly recommend this place as the staff is truly outstanding.

During this time of COVID, and different stages , I felt completely safe and protected, yet still able to enjoy the dining out experience.
The Diner Meatloaf and Red Snapper were delicious, perfectly prepared , and signature cocktail never disappoints.

Food was superb!
We were early at 5:30 so it wasn’t too busy, but we did have to ask for our waitress twice: to place our order, then to ask for our check and we had no patrons at adjacent tables.
She was pleasant and cheerful, but could’ve been a bit more attentive.
Our meals were A++

With the exception of one cocktail, everything about our meal at Shore was 5 star. The food was fresh and delicious and the portions were sufficient for sharing or taking home leftovers. The Shrimp and Scallops with creamy risotto was excellent. The Shore Cocktail was disappointing, however, and more like a martini, but we asked to return them in exchange for something else and our waitress was very nice about it.

The food was very good as we had a great time but it was very hot!!! I had to sit on the cloth napkin as my legs were sweating on the seat. The humidity killed my hair. The fans were on but the windows were closed, not enough air.
