Fun place to go, with excellent food and friendly staff. One of the best burgers in town. We eat there a lot, and have not had a bad meal.

We've been going to Shakespeares for many a year so the staff are very familiar with us. As soon as we walk in the door, my Guinness on draft is poured immediately while Kenneth hums and haws. I find I am drinking before he has decided what he wants. Its a very friendly place and very very cozy. We always... More

Good selection of pub food, all of it very good. Excellent fish an chips. Large list of draft beers with interesting names. My husband plans on going back to try them all. I will stick to the wine :) Very friendly staff. Busy on weekends.

Enjoyed another great meal washed down with a fine IPA at Shakespeare's. Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, great food. What else does one need?

A rare occasion calling for a dark cozy bar with a good burger. Rather than trust my usual hunch I decided to google "the best of...". Lots of arrows pointed to Shakespeare's, an English Pub located at the far end of a ubiquitous strip mall on Osprey. A burger needs a beer so that's where to start. With 15 craft... More

We have went here several times over the last few years. Might be as good a burger as you will get in Sarasota! Normally get Cowboy burger but this time got the Thai. Wife got Black & Bleu burger. All great choices! Lots of brews on tap.

I've lived here for nearly 20 years and tonight was the first time I had the pleasure of dining here. My lady friend had the Pasty dinner with mashed potatoes and I had the Fish and Chips.
