We frequent Patrick's because of the friendly service and good Happy Hour drink and appetizers prices. Never disappointing.

Went for the Monday night special which combined with summer happy hour until 9pm was amazing value - less than $20 for 2 great burger meals, a beer and a glass of wine in a nice restaurant- beats any fast food chain !!

Good was good but the service was poor. Complained to the manager but he was part of the problem. We used to frequent this place until the poor service and rude manager. Oh well one less place to go for dining in Sarasota.

Well I know that they make great pizzas. They get their dough from the local Panificio pizza and bread outlet.

This is not the place to get seafood, more of a soup and sandwich, salads and that type of fare. Great food and service, but not if you want seafood!
