My second time but I had reservations this go round and sat at a table. Took my husband and neighbors. They all love everything about our evening! Music was perfect. Dinner, delicious! I love their version of grilled oysters from North Atlantic waters. Great night and we’re looking forward to another trip over. 👍😊

The service was amazing. The yucca sticks were great but we ordered the beef empanadas and they were dripping in oil. we ordered the lobster and shrimp linguini and it was just ok. no flavor, just tasted like buttered noodles. next time we'll order something else

About the restaurant
When we started Big Top Brewing Company, there were no craft breweries in the Sarasota area and we set out to fix that. We wanted to compliment Sarasota’s historical associations with The Ringling Circus, performing arts, great architecture, the best art and design schools and world renown tourism.

The best way we could do that was to craft beer that our home town can be proud of. We plan to continue the tradition of the arts and help Sarasota add beer town to its identity. Come step under our big top and see for yourself. Big Top Brewing Company artistically crafts world class beers, inspired by our passion, integrity, and the history of our home town.

We had great service, delicious food w/large portions and good beer. The place is huge and impressive. We asked the waitress to turn down the blaring music and they did. But she said that when they got busy, the volume would go up again.
