I had the snapper, which was good but nothing great. My mom and husband had the lamb which was over cooked. We enjoyed our dinner and the experience but for the prices I definitely expect better food. Based on my experience this seems to be true of most places on the Island.

We went to the Gasparilla Inn for our wedding anniversary last month. It was such a special evening! The food was wonderful and the service was fabulous! The staff knew it was our anniversary and they had printed special menus with our names on the top wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We will be back again soon!

Just have to post about our meal in the Inn's Main Dining Room last evening. We are 40-year Gasparilla Island residents, who have watched the Gasparilla Inn literally blossom in recent years. The current ownership and management have been working diligently to update the property with a reverence for its original historical elegance. One of the most significant improvements has... More

I will preface this review by saying that I was raised in a rather upper crust household, vacationing in places like the 5-star Cloister in Sea Island, the Palm Beach Breakers, and Badrutt's Palace in St. Moritz. IOW, I know how to dress and comport myself in nice places. But I'm not a snob. Nor am I wealthy. I appreciate... More

Both our meals were the best we have ever had. Entrees were duck and salmon. Very properly prepared and served with excellent sides. Quantities were modest, but totally adequate... And left room for dessert. Nice wine list, too.

Located in an Historical Register Inn elegant, fine dining. Imagine traveling to Florida as the trains forged their way to the Florida Keys. Facility in keeping with the generation of travelers from Grove Park Inn, Greenbriar and others of that era.

The total dinning experience was beyond all our expectations. Outstanding is an understatement. We began dinner with a wine bottle of Stags Leap Chardonnay. We enjoyed the most interesting and delicious Caesar salad in the world and a wonderfully tender black grouper. The cream brûlée was the best one anywhere. Our only regret was that we tried other restaurants in... More
