One of the best lunches, seafood Cobb salad out of this world. Great ambiance- service and friendly atmosphere. Skip the grilled cheese sandwich- nothing special. Very tricky to get upstairs if in wheel chair, must go through clothes store and getting back down very more so if the switch wasn't flipped in the morning go use elevator to go downstairs.

A definite "must visit" for brunch! Our table had, bloody Mary's, mimosas, & orange juice for drinks. Our brunch items were all over the menu, from a burger to crab cake eggs Benedict, huevos ranchero burrito to chicken-n-waffles, and steak & eggs to bananas foster French toast. We left satisfied and full. My family and I will definitely return.

Stopped in to the shore diner while walking around the circle. Great location upstairs, great outdoor patio to watch everyone outside. Food was really good, I had the tuna, the duck fries were incredible. Service was good and the wine was delicious

We met up with friends at Armand Circle and they took us to Shores for dinner! Fun, upbeat restaurant!! Good cocktails and excellent food selections. My husband tried the swordfish special which was excellent!! My seafood Cobb salad was extraordinary!

I've been here many many times and keep hoping for improvement. Alas, it's never going to happen. this is a cool and upbeat place to meet for drinks. But their drinks are REALLY stingy. I sent back a martini this evening because I couldn't even taste the vodka. I'm feeling ill from the mussels. The food at this place is... More

We had high hopes for dinner and hate that we wasted a meal here. They had a very interesting menu with several options that sounded like they had potential. Unfortunately, when your food comes out undercooked, you never really get a chance to enjoy it. They offered a house ground Shore Burger that sounded great. The burger came out raw.... More

Very nice atmosphere for a restaurant in Florida....more upscale than most. They have some really good menu options here. The service was great and so were the views from outside. We enjoyed the calamari, sangria and fried chicken.

I wanted to try the Shore Diner--it looks kinda cool from the outside, and we planned a date night there. The ambience is very nice. My compliments end there. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't good. We were there for an early dinner, at about 5:30. They weren't crowded, had plenty of staff around, yet service was soooooo slow. In... More

Someone has said 'excellent fine dining', that person either need to get out more or has a low expectation of fine dining! Having said that, the restaurant is pretty good, but over priced and a teenie weenie bit up itself! Our waitress was v friendly tho a touch slow, which was OK by the way. The food was better than...
