What to do when a shabby bank "out East" goes up for sale in Sarasota? Buy it and transform it into a restaurant. Fill it with locally sourced Caribbean and Creole flavors, name it something a little outlandish like Madfish Grill, and open it as the first locally owned mom-and-pop seafood restaurant in the neighborhood.

I recently tried out Madfish Grill for the first time and was exceptionally pleased with the experience. I was wondering if I would find anything I like, as my children are the seafood lovers and I am not. Our server, Joe, suggested that I try their flat iron steak and I was quite pleased with the seasoning and it came cooked medium rare, just as I had requested. I also was delighted to see that truffle fries were on the menu, which seems to be a rare find. They came with a dill sauce that was to die for. The broccoii was brilliantly seasoned and cooked perfectly. To top it all off the bread came with a unique fresh garlic and olive oil dip which teased my tasted buds. Joe suggested some delicious desserts for my kids and they made a special ending to our visit. I will be sure to return again anytime we visit the Sarasota area
Any day is a good day for happy hour at MFG. Rita’s latest and greatest concoction, the skinny piña colada on the rocks. Delicious! Light and vibrant with coconut water. Ben and Company always aim to please with innovative and rotating menus and seasonal cocktails. Great menu and great staff. We love the Madfish Grill.
I may have reviewed it already, but it deserves repeating. This is a gem of a place. When I asked the manger which platform to post my review he said they were busy enough. I know that could sound wrong to some, so to clarify, it was 5 pm on Wednesday and the place was packed. Food is very good with fresh seafood and original dishes. If you're traveling, it's a short hop off of I 75.
