Family of four. Food was terrific. Burgers were 1/2 lb. and wonderful. Also recommend Knick's salad and the minestrone soup - both were delicious.

Went to the tavern early. to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Chose to sit at an outside table and were almost immediately greeted by a wait staff person. Based upon the numbers of people that followed us, this appears to be a very popular dining location for Sarasota Hospital personnel. Food was ordered and delivered promptly and was exactly as ordered.... More

We went for lunch so experience is limited but there were a number of interesting items and choices. My wife had a Chipotle Crumbled Blue Cheese Burger - and when asked how it was she said it was somewhat over cooked. Although we said it was not necessary to replace it they insisted on preparing a new one which was... More

We had not been to Knick's for 12 years and I had hoped in that time the food had improved from my memory. Sadly, it disappointed. We went with friends who had been in the spring and one of them loved the hamburger. He was pleased last week with another hamburger. So...that is a high point. For the other three... More

Best burger I have ever had! Knick's is a great pub/restaurant/grill near the Hillview street area. Love the ambience, very nice owner, and great food and drink!

My wife and I visited Knick's a few days ago for the first time. From what I understand, Knick's has been in business for 15 years, yet it has been meticulously maintained. The decor is very contemporary, nicely constructed and "well thought out". They have a beautiful wooden bar w/ a vast wine and beer selection, and a decent sized... More

Went to Knick's just this evening. We are locals in an area where locals are a minority and again, this eating establishment seems to cater to the palate of the palate-less mid western tourist. We started our meal with an appetizer of blackened calamari. So far, so good. We found this to be a tasty, unique take on a traditional... More

All six of us who dined thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The appetizers that we ordered were plentiful and very tasty. The pasta was cooked perfectly, lightly sauced - just the way I like it. The dish of the night seemed to be the hit at our table: prime rib roast sandwich. So much so, that we're going back there on... More

They have daily "theme" specials -- Tuesday is Latin Night, Thursday Fish... And a regular menu. Their kitchen performance is always consistend. My favorite is... Well, Knick's Chipotle Wings, their Burger (Black Angus Beef) and their Filet Au Poivre. Great for lunch and dinner -- they are open from lunch until dinner which I find very convenient. Sometime, I eat... More
