Q-Tips say: Just when we think we tried it all at Rosebud!!
The Q’s knew they had Oyster’s Rockefeller but never thought to look at the menu to see if they have raw Oysters. THEY DO! Delicious fresh raw oysters and at a reasonable price. A super fun, great restaurant. Rosebud offers daily: Early Bird Specials & Two for One Drinks daily in the Lounge from 4 to 6. You are able to carry in a two for one drink special, into the Main Dining Room, after you pay your bar bill. The Early Bird Menu is varied with Seafood, Steaks, and Specials of the Day and come with a Salad and Sides. If you eat in the main dining room ask for Tom – a great server that we have known since we first started coming to Rosebud many years ago. But most of the wait staff is excellent and willing to please. The Main Dining Room Menu is terrific, along with great service that can’t be beat. We enjoy just about anything on the menu. Prime Rib, Steaks, Live, salmon, and all seafood and specials. The best LIVER AND ONIONS around.
Mrs. Q says: Never had a bad meal or never had bad service yet. Do yourself a favor and go and enjoy! If you go during “snowbird” season, be sure to make a reservation. Reservations NOT accepted in the Lounge/Bar area. If they have Frog Legs on hand & we call the day before, they are happy to prepare them even tho they are not on the menu for that day. They also have outstanding cocktail onions in their drinks. ENJOY, we always do.
A BIT of HISTORY: Mike Kodra, began his restaurant career in Chicago, 1965. He along with his two sons, Rick and Bill, founded Rosebuds in 1995 continuing the tradition of a true restaurant family. We strive for service, quality, and consistency. With a warm, inviting and energetic atmosphere, Rosebud’s is a seriously successful restaurant with a stellar reputation on the south end of Sarasota that is truly worth the drive. A quaint and cozy but lively bar where you can come to hang-out with good friends, or just kick back with a good glass of wine or cognac.
They specialize and feature aged, hand-cut, Black Angus steaks, fresh seafood, chicken and veal sautés — prepared the Rosebud’s way. Rick (owner/chef) is constantly creating new dishes with fresh ingredients and personal touches using what is in season, Ipswich clams, mussels, stone crabs, and live Maine lobster (only during season).
