Q-tips say: Go & enjoy! Sit in the dining area and ask for Josh R- or Couri in the bar area they are great/happy people. Bar bites in the entire restaurant.
Happy Hour: Our drinks were: $4.75. I had my usual Old Fashion w/ their Happy Hour Bourbon with dirty ice on the side. The Other half had: Perfect Manhattan w/ dirty ice on the side. We shared the delicious pretzels.
Mrs. Q had: HERITAGE FRENCH ONION SOUP – Rich beef and onion broth, toasted croutons, melted swiss & BUFFALO SHRIMP – Lightly seasoned, flash fried, and all these sauces on the side: bleu cheese crumbles, bleu cheese aioli, mild buffalo sauce.

Q-TIPS SAY: Good food and drinks. Enjoyed the “bar area” with great service from some of the bar tenders. The bar-tenders are – (the unsung hero of a restaurant). Also have gone to the dining room with friends and all enjoyed their regular menu meals/service & libations. If you are in Sarasota, FL give Stonewood a visit. We do go often and enjoy. Go & enjoy!
Don’t forget about those delicious warm pretzels instead of the usual bread which they now charge you for – you get 4 pretzels for $2.95
1/18/22 – The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R. (Tye Sheridan), a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother (Lily Rabe) struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father (Christopher Lloyd) — J.R. begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams — with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie’s bar.
Q-tips say: Yes, see it. We enjoyed it. Follow JR’s life growing up with large family at Grandpa’s house. It’s a decent coming-of-age tale based on a memoir. Story with working-class detail and if the peaks and valleys of J.R.’s life are a little predictable, the cast provide exemplary turns.
Q-tips say: They offer the same menu to eat in/to go/take out
Go and enjoy! Good food, drinks, service and nice ambiance.
They offer a $10, $11 & $12.00 menu for lunch till 4:00. The dinner menu is impressive and also offer “small plates choices.” We shared Bluepoint oysters on the half shell- NO, NOT from Apalachicola – they were delicious. And fresh bread with delicious champagne butter.
1/15/22 – In the world of international crime, an Interpol agent attempts to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted art thief.
Q-tips say: OK – silly but we did enjoy to a point. The nice thing here is that the humor outweighs the mindless action.
Mrs. Q says: Keep in mind, it is just a movie. We watched it on a cool rainy evening it was just about perfect for the time and place. It promises good action, charm, absurd journey. A film worth watching for a goofy good time. Just some good dumb fun. The final scene suggests a sequel.
Q-tips say: YES, to Rosebud. Go in the Dining Room & during “snow bird & spring break time,” make a reservation.
Dine in – Dine out. Early Bird Menu, Yes, to the dinning room.
We shared the warm crusty bread with butter or olive oil & Oysters on the Half Shell.
On this day, the bar area was noisy & loud at times & crazy people trying to get their favorite seat by the bar. The dining room is much nicer & not as loud so you can actually carry on a conversation. Go to the dining room.
Mrs. Q had: A Caesar salad & Whitefish Piccata – whitefish sautéed with garlic, mushrooms and capers in a lemon white wine sauce & Croquettes.
Mr. Q had: Had a bowl of New England Clam Chowder & Italian Sausage with Onions & Peppers. Mild Italian sausage, sautéed onions, peppers, tomato sauce on garlic baguette toast.
If you dine in the dining room, ask for Tom. One of the nicest people we have met & servers around. Tom, See you soon.
Some of our favorite dishes: Awesome Prime Rib dinner, delicious fish items such as Salmon, best Liver & Onions, several whitefish choices, ribs, shrimp. Go & enjoy.
Severe, pale-eyed, handsome, Phil Burbank is brutally beguiling. All of Phil’s romance, power and fragility is trapped in the past and in the land: He can castrate a bull calf with two swift slashes of his knife; he swims naked in the river, smearing his body with mud. He is a cowboy as raw as his hides. The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress, and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, reveling in their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter — all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her. As Phil swings between fury and cunning, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form — he hovers at the edges of her vision, whistling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil’s cowhand disciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot twisting further into menace?
Q-tips say: YES, see it. We enjoyed it. Won many awards.
Mrs. Q says: Filmed with stunning scenery, Dog can subvert your early opinions about who is “good” and “evil” in the drama, and make you reconsider your sympathies by the end. The movie is quietly, sneakily stunning.

PASTA NIGHT – Choose your pasta, pasta sauce with your toppings of choice (meat/sausage/shrimp/peas, etc. Includes garlic bread & salad.) One of the better dining dinners offered because you get to choose your pasta, sauce, meats, shrimp etc. & how much of each.
