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.

We have had consistently good meals at Shore, whether brunch,lunch,or dinner. The branzino is excellent.

We love Shore. We really like the retractable roof and the overall vibe of the place.
This was a nice evening, but only thing that I would say is that the waiter seemed like he could have cared less about us. We were not ordering a lot of things but we still had a substantial bill. We will return but hope we can get better wait staff.

Nice location and setting on St. Armands Key on the Circle. Staff doesn’t seem very happy... none of them??? Regardless, good and drink was delicious and would return. Cauliflower, Crab ‘Sliders’, Ahi Tuna, Scallop and Shrimp and Grouper were great, although Blackened Grouper was not blackened.

Drinks were also Memorable!

We had an amazing evening, with Incredible food and wonderful service by Sean! We ate at the special menu which was half the size of the regular meals and it was wonderful! My friend had risotto and shrimp and absolutely love the lemon risotto and shrimp and I had the salmon with roasted vegetables and smashed potatoes and was absolutely outstanding. We also got the tuna tartare appetizer and it was super fresh and full of flavor. Highly recommended, love the outdoor seating & Ambience and can't wait to go back again!

Had a lovely server. Very knowledgeable. But the food was only so-so. And it was so overloaded with sodium we could barely eat beyond a few bites.

Scallops were great. Server was nice and communicative - gave honest perspective on the menu. Need more dry white and rose wines on the menu. Catering to the syrup-loving “olds” a bit much (because #florida).

One of my favorite restaurants in the Sarasota area. Excellent creative and healthy food choices along with comfort food for those wanting that. Different cocktails too. And, the wait staff is excellent, may just need a couple more for peak times. Always love going there!

Tired menu, disappointing food.
We used to frequent Shore a lot but the quality has been slipping while the prices have been going up.

The Shore never disappoints. Since we were celebrating our friends birthday, we requested a specific booth at a specific time and both were waiting for us when we arrived. The noise level was "energetic" but it did not interfere with normal conversation levels. Our waiter was excellent, attentive but he did not rush us at all which we appreciated since we intended to "linger" for a while. All the food was superb ~ from the ribs to the salmon to the eggplant ~ and prepared perfectly. Giving the "Birthday Girl" a free dessert was a wonderful touch. Not to be too picky but they have a very limited dessert menu, explained very well by our waiter when he said "since there are so many places on the Circle to get dessert, we have found that very few people order dessert here".

Wonderfully furnished, modern coastal with great vibe. Service was amazing! Chorizo crusted Halibut dish with chutney was so amazing, hope they add this to the menu as a regular item, and the lobster crab bisque was the best bowl of soup I’ve ever had.

We ordered the calamari as they are known for this dish and I have had it before during the slower lunch hour and it was amazing, moist and a light breeding. Tonight though the calamari were so over done it was off-putting / bitter and so chewy you couldn’t eat it. We sent it back and got a second one, but it wasn’t much better...the greens were great but the calamari were still dry and over cooked and seemed like the breading was heavier than it had been for the lunch order I’d had.

We love this restaurant and will keep coming back!

Ordered a lobster, shrimp, crab Cobb salad for dinner and it was 40-50% tomato and only very small totally chopped up bits of unrecognizable seafood. Had been to Duvall’s the night before and ordered the same thing, but it came with chunks of seafood and was delicious! Wanted to love this place - great ambiance! - but, sadly, it was a disappointment.
