A must on Monday nights in Sarasota. $5 for a basic hamburger. Bacon cheeseburger $6. Most expensive is $8. This special is only on Mondays. The burgers were juicy and cooked to perfection. Place is packed but they do take reservations. Indoor and outdoor seating as well. Staff is always pleasant. Everyone in our party was happy with their dinner... More

I should have known that this would be worth the gamble based on the paucity of parking, the fact that the place next door was crowded, (we all understand slipover business) and the line out the door to the corner. Yes it was a bit of a wait to get a table, but we were lucky enough to get a... More

They must have a different chef. Fries aren't as good as they use to be. Bar area is a little crowded.

Good mid range price option in Sarasota. One of the only fast casual restaurants downtown. Good food prepared well. Most of the staff has been there for a long time. Speaks volumes!

I expect to spend more than average for dinner on Main Street, but I also expect an above average meal. Unfortunately Patrick's meets expectations on price, but not on quality. The service was good, the manager attentive and involved, but the food was decidedly mediocre. Of the six of us, the only one who was pleased with his meal had... More

The pub is always crowded, food is fine, service is adequate for a pub. Burgers are great, noise is very loud. Fun place to meet friends but not if you are looking a quiet meal. Try it!

We wanted dinner while touring downtown Sarasota and asked a local resident passer by if they could give a recommendation. They said if we were interested in a delicious burger Patricks is the place. Patrick's offers a full menu, but based on the burgers we saw coming from the kitchen, we opted for burgers. They were outstanding. They are large... More
