We went here for dinner, and ordered burgers. My burger had good flavor, but there was some fat in the meat. My friend on the other hand had a different experience. She really enjoyed her burger except that there was a black hair in the meat. Overall would recommend for flavors.

Visited "shore dinner" located in St Armands, Sarasota on March 26, 2017. Good open modern space, which can hold large parties. The restaurant also features a nice patio with a fire pit. The hostess was pleasant and professional. They will call your cell, when your table is ready. I had the meatloaf which was fine (ask for more gravy) and... More

Stopped for drinks after shopping in St. Armand's for the afternoon. Open seating on the settees on the open air terrace. Inventive cocktails, friendly staff and interesting people to meet. We didn't have any food but would certainly go back to an afternoon refreshment.

The food is good. Sunday brunch a place to be seen. You can watch people if you get deck seating. It's enjoyable.

Serving a great variety of dishes from fried chicken and meatloaf to kale and quinoa, there's something for everyone at this vibrant spot on St Armand's Circle. A California vibe permeates this spot but somehow feels right despite the Florida locale. Fun, lively and bustling describes the spot and the service matches that. The food is tasty and worthy of...

Definitely recommend this place to everyone. We started with the calamari and pork belly tacos. The Calamari was decent but the tacos were amazing! Then we had the fried chicken and meatloaf. The meatloaf was frickin AWESOME! Ended the meal with bananas foster bread pudding, pretty good. The ambience was phenomenal and the service was great. I will definitely go... More

Wish we had another day left on our vacation so we could come back. Everything was great, from the service to the food and cocktails. Delicious! A modern take on some classics, and creative fusion food. The atmosphere was lovely, too, overlooking the busy street but not being in the fray.

Excellent St. Armands option. Plenty of well prepared and tasty options. The tuna salad is not to be missed. We love the place and enjoy the outside dining here, even the inside is appealing with doors that open to the air

Shore offers delicious food in generous portions at reasonable prices, plus excellent service. There are veggie and vegan options, and you can sit inside or outside, in the sun or in the shade (or at the bar). It's on the second floor, so don't walk by it (you'll need to climb stairs).
