The food was really good. You know when you are in a touristy area and some of the places have everything shipped in...this is not that. Seems they have a real chef. Drinks were good... but it's hard to mess up cocktails. Location is okay....More

7 New Yorkers had a perfect dinner last night in terms of food and service. Not a single disappointed guest. Gracious and responsive service, generous portions, deep flavors and the freshest fish possible. It was so good that we worry about trying another place tonight....More

My family has been visiting Boca Grande for over 40 years. Needless to say, we've all eaten at The Pink. The past few summers the menu choices and quality of food has decreased. The menu changes often, but not always for the better! The fish...More

We asked for the best restaurant in town and the hotel said the Pink Elephant. The food was good with the exception of the bruschetta which was soaked in oil and had too much topping on it. It's supposed to be a light, crunchy, flavorful...More

By all means, not the Old Pink juke joint, but the Gasparilla Inn has kept the food worthy and a juke box is still there. A "must try" is the Spicy Watermelon Margarita - Yum! It's a lovely place with a comfortable outdoor area complete...More

No reservations taken in summer. One hour wait is proof that they need to open upstairs dining room on weekends. The dinner menu offers a good variety of items. The peel and eat shrimp app is delicious; very flavorful. The main dishes all needed more...More

I would check with the restaurant about it's hours in the summer. Boca Grande has 2 seasons: Summer and "Social". :) A lot of stores have limited operating hours in the summer.
