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.

The chef formerly worked at a few of the best restaurants in New York City and it shows. Dinner was fantastic and Michael our server was a joy. Don’t miss dining here.

We love dining at Shore and try to do it every time we are in Sarasota -- about five times a year. The menu has changed a bit but the favorites are still on the menu like the fried chicken. We had the red snapper which was sensational!

D E A F E N I N G ....... impossible to survive. Very large group of youngish women PARTYING .... screaming .... hooting .... we could not hear a thing but then! Our special night ruined with out of town friends.
The management did not intervene. No attempt was made to calm the group down. They were seated at a huge long table .... about 15 of them.
We ate and left. It was a terribly difficult and embarrassing night. We picked the restaurant. We apologized to our guests. Shore should apologize to us!!

I ordered the salmon. It came drowned in sauce. I asked”lite” sauce and that too went unheeded.

Ugh!!!

We had a reservation for a booth. A couple ahead of us without reservations requested a booth. Guess who the table in the booth was offered to? Not us. However, my friend insisted on the booth and the hostess eventuality relented. Not a great start. The service was perfunctory at best. Maybe because he was training a new server? Food was as awesome. No complaints there. However when we tried to pay with a visa gift card we were refused. The server wouldn’t accept it. We had to use a credit card with a chip ONLY. Disappointed because we wanted to show off a great restaurant in Sarasota to our out of town friends.

Really nice setting above at Armands circle. Had a nice server Becka that was attentive but not intrusive
Good happy hour prices and selection. Menu a little limited but decent. Had the scallops and shrimp over risotto and this was a nice dish

Key lime pie was pretty pedestrian

Will go again

We had reservations for my 60th birthday dinner. Many tables open however they placed us in the back of restaurant 2 seats next to loud mouth couple, literally arms length. We chose to leave and dined at the Columbia instead. First time visiting the square. Disappointed to say the least. We were looking forward to a special evening.

Attractive decor, decent food but over-priced for what it was; overly salty. A lot of hustle & bustle, people wanting to see and be seen.

We were disappointed as soon as we entered the restaurant. We noticed an overall unkempt appearance, poor service, dirty appliances, noise levels too high and just an overall very used and worn out tourist type establishment. The crab cake actually made my wife sick, so understandably, we would never go back nor recommend this restaurant to anyone. The bartender was into herself too much rather than giving excellent customer care. In fact, we noticed that attitude with all the staff. We had high hopes but were completely disappointed. Note for the owner/manager (if they even care or read the reviews) Put some effort in cleanliness and spruce up your restaurant daily and care more about your clientele by training your staff in a different way. Ty, (we are local residents)

This is one of our favorite places and we loved the food - the service was not as great as it should be for a place with these prices - asked for bread and it never appeared, sat with dirty dishes for what seemed like forever, asked for dessert menu and there wasn’t one , server just seemed to evaporate and wouldn’t see him for long periods of time.

Love this place! Great atmosphere, combined with terrific food. I highly recommend the kung pao calamari appetizer, which can easily be shared by two people. The menu offers a lot of variety. For
something different, try the meatloaf. Superb!

We went to Shore on 12/28 and as usual had a great experience. Everything from atmosphere and ambiance, to impeccable and friendly service, to delicious food was just fantastic. Every time we are in Sarasota area we try to get to Shore at least once, so we have become kind of regulars there. And we have never been disappointed. Our favorite is wood grilled branzino, it is absolutely delicious and the portion is big enough to share especially if you have couple of appetizers to start your dinner (recommend tuna tartar, Thai curry mussels, lobster or shrimp bisque). We will definitely continue going there for great dining experience. Keep up good work Shore team!!
