We recently moved into the Arlington Park neighborhood and found this gem while exploring the neighborhood. The food is great, always an abundance of great specials, and the atmosphere is just delightful. Very cozy inside, but with outdoor seating options as well. We've always had the same server, I think she may possibly be the owner. Service is top notch.... More

It is nice to sit outside and eat great food at Knicks. Our waitress was excellent--she said she had worked their for 10 years and loved the food (you could tell). The main reason we selected Knicks was because of the duck we saw on the menu. They were out of the duck! But we enjoyed the food we ordered:... More

Family of four. Food was terrific. Burgers were 1/2 lb. and wonderful. Also recommend Knick's salad and the minestrone soup - both were delicious.

Went to the tavern early. to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Chose to sit at an outside table and were almost immediately greeted by a wait staff person. Based upon the numbers of people that followed us, this appears to be a very popular dining location for Sarasota Hospital personnel. Food was ordered and delivered promptly and was exactly as ordered.... More

We went for lunch so experience is limited but there were a number of interesting items and choices. My wife had a Chipotle Crumbled Blue Cheese Burger - and when asked how it was she said it was somewhat over cooked. Although we said it was not necessary to replace it they insisted on preparing a new one which was... More

We had not been to Knick's for 12 years and I had hoped in that time the food had improved from my memory. Sadly, it disappointed. We went with friends who had been in the spring and one of them loved the hamburger. He was pleased last week with another hamburger. So...that is a high point. For the other three... More

Best burger I have ever had! Knick's is a great pub/restaurant/grill near the Hillview street area. Love the ambience, very nice owner, and great food and drink!
