I fell in love with this place years ago, so every summer when we visit Sarasota, this is one of our favorite dining stops. The #1 on the menu is my absolute favorite. I have never been disappointed. One of the things that makes this a perfect stop is you don't have to have fries with your sandwich. I always... More

I've never tried any of their other offerings, because I am SO sold on their shrimp - but they have quite an extensive menu for such an unassuming place. Nice people too.

Good but not great. Plenty of meat on the Gyro and not a bad Tatziki sauce. Meat was a little dry and service was fast food slow but I may well stop by again the next time I am in the neighborhood.

I get lunch from here on the weekend. They have excellent shrimp and fish meals. The price is very reasonable, and there's plenty of food. Love it.

This place has been there for me when Greek/Mediterranean food cravings hit. I have tried a decent amount of restaurants in the area since moving here, trying to find a place that has a Greek salad that I like AND almost more importantly, a Greek dressing I like. See, I moved from Southern California which seemed to have a lot... More

I have tried pretty much everything on their menu, I've never had a bad meal. My favorites are the fried oysters, Philly, gyro & calamari. They make their fries perfect. I can't stand fries that aren't crispy. A great place to pig out on great seafood at affordable prices.

I got the 20 piece fried shrimp. The fried fish was amazing as well. This is the best tasting seafood I've had in awhile!
