The setting is beautiful and you will get very good service but the food is horrible. I sent my meal back it was covered in salt and the fish quality was very poor. Spend your money at Temptations.

We had breakfast and dinner here while staying at the Inn. Food was excellent as was the service. Decor is classic Old Florida.

We venture to the Gasparilla Inn for breakfast every now and then because my husband says their Eggs Benedict is to die for! Food is always served promptly and the staff is excellent. Our breakfasts were delicious as usual and the atmosphere can't be beat!

Service was prompt and friendly. Beautiful salad presentations, though the Caesar was over dressed. The veggies were cooked perfectly, which seems to be a challenge for many restaurants. None of my food was hot, the sauce tasted like congealed butter, the duck was extremely chewy...More

The Gasparilla Inn dates back to the great days of the early 20th century when the railroads brought the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers to Boca Frand to fish for the famous Tarpon. This is our favorite place to dine for special occasions.

Every is local, fresh, made in house. They say: If we serve it, we make it! Much attention to detail. Beautiful environment, the hotel is gorgeous. Food arrives piping hot. Not inexpensive and you need to put on your glad rags to fit in. Sophisticated...More

Stopped in for a cocktail before dinner elsewhere. The cocktail was good and the service was excellent. Entire place reminiscent of Florida years ago.

We have not dined there on the New Year's Eve but surely the costs are quite high. Menu and service is very good, it could be a memorable evening. You have to book in good time, though, and the dress code should be at the... More

Best to give them a call but I'd guess a jacket for gentlemen, no shorts for anybody and no denim whatsoever. Give them a call.
