Slowest waitress service ever. It took our party of four two hours from sitting to standing in line to pay (5:00 to after 7:00) Took 45 minutes to get a drink refill. Didn't see our waitress for over 30 minutes at a time, she never checked back on us for anything. Place was busy for the first hour, but other... More

Tough to get to because the parking lot is torn up due to remodeling of supermarket next door. Good price, good food (particularly breakfast). Courteous wait staff. Lots of locals eating there.

We went 5:30pm on a Wednesday. They did not have a bartender, waitress pleasant but not the best. It was over an hour to get our meal! I will say, our meal was hot, everyone had something different and everyone thought their meal was very, very good.

About 2 weeks ago, we had lunch at the Burnt Store Grill. The place was busy, service was slow and when the food came, it was not hot. We had eaten here several times the past few winters when in town for a month or more and always had good food and service, so decided this was not typical. A... More

Dennis, It's a shame that your recent experiences with us were not up to par. We spend ample time training our employees to work as efficiently as possible, so it is disappointing to hear that your waitress had been inattentive when you needed assistance. Your feedback means a lot to us, and we thank you for bringing your experiences to... More

The Burnt Store Grille is not a fancy place, but the food is quite good. As they say, "Good bang for your buck."

We are local residents of Punta Gorda and have visited the Burnt Store Grill many times. Because it’s a nice comfortable restaurant with decent food and good service.

This used to be a really good place to eat with good food and good service. I don't know if they have a change of ownership or what happened but it is awful. We went there with another couple and waited 3 hours for our food. The waitress never even brought our salads which I'm sure are made up in... More
