Sunday lunch here comes with a free drink (mimosa, Bloody Mary, or orange juice). The menu includes breakfast or lunch. Sit outside and relax, the view of little Sarasota bay is beautiful.

We stopped in for a light lunch and couldn't resist their great appetizers! The Lump Crab Cakes were incredible and the Crab Stuffed Mushrooms had us wanting to come back again the next day. It was a wonderful lunch experience!
