I had been so excited to visit having read some great reviews; however, I didn't even eat. I handed over $21.15 for a meal that came to $11.15, thinking I was helping by providing change that would return an even $10. The staff member went to the register, put the money in, left the registrar drawer open, turned to the... More

We stopped by New Pass for lunch. Great day for sitting waterside with family. The grilled chicken sandwich is quality and the burgers are not too bad. My parents who live nearby say that the breakfast sandwiches are great also. Highly recommended.

You may ride by it. It is a dump, but trust me, it is the bomb! Good location. Fast service. Price is fair for a vacation area. Worth your time and money.

Grab a burger or fish sandwich at the window, and take it a few steps to a picnic table right on Sarasota Bay. Watch fishermen bring in & clean their catch. Quiet & serene. A good stop after Mote Marine Aquarium about a minute away!

Restaurant on the sea shore, good food, a little rustic, but not pretending to be a swish eatery, good sized portions of tasty food.

With the bait shop next store, this surprising eatery has cold beer and quality seafood in a unique setting by the bridge. I enjoyed the fish and chips (excellent) and my daughter liked the shrimp basket. Although typical in construction, the food was yummy and the fries were excellent. Fun view of the water and the charters coming in. We... More

I used to really like this place but the ladies working behind the counter have gotten really grouchy of late. It has a nostalgic feel and is right on the water which is awesome, but the staff needs to get their happy face back on. I have taken clients there many times and the last few times have been less...

We stopped by New Pass Grill for lunch after a visit to the MOTE Marine aquarium in Sarasota. Very casual, orders taken at a window and seating is all outside with nice water views. An array of birds were entertaining us as we waited for our lunch and while dining. There were pelicans, herons, and egrets to watch who all... More
