Maybe you should stick to owning one restaurant as your new Parrotfish Grille was horrible!!!!!
Decided to try out this new restaurant (Parrotfish Grille...same owners as Cafe 776) as they had been open now for a couple of weeks and should have had most of the kinks worked out. Draft beer prices were OUTRAGEOUS! We have NEVER in 26 years living in Englewood paid that much for a glass of draft beer! And the manager did not even know how to change a keg out when one blew and we ended up doing it for her as it was going to be 20-30 minutes before someone got there to do it for her. OMG and this is the manager????? Ordered dinner....two of us had sea scallop dinner the other two had their fish and chip platter. Sea scallops, although they were the smallest sea scallops I had seen in a long time were cooked perfectly and were served with lukewarm fry and very bland coleslaw. The two individuals with the fish and chips were very very disappointed. Fish was COLD and the fries were COLD! Not lukewarm....COLD! We immediately told the server who reported it to the manager. After that the only time we saw the server was when she delivered the bill. No offer to re-fire or correct the cold food....what we got was $2.00 total off of the bill. Total bill for four was $130....definitely NOT WORTH IT and will not be back. Outrageous prices and no correction for errors on their part is inexcuseable! By the way....please do NOT order their Sirloin Coulette if you do not know what it is....first coulette is spelled wrong as culotte means a steak that due to the lack of marbling is tougher than normal and this place wants $20 for a tough steak? They priced it slightly higher than the ribeye and are trying to disguise it with a French term. Do not be fooled!
Great food. The fish and chips and the fried shrimp are excellent. The restaurant is small, very casual, and provides quick service. All the food was extremely hot that we had to pause a bit to avoid burning our mouths. Cash only, so be prepared. Definitely worth the trip.
We're from up north and we vacation in the area every winter. The 776 is always a stop for at least one night for us. We have freinds that also vacation in the area at different times and the same holds true for them. Great food at a great price.
Cafe 776, at 138 North Indiana Ave. in Englewood, FL, is located on State Rte 776, aka Indiana Ave. locally, thus the name, in case you were wondering. The place is on the western side of the avenue just north of the intersection with Dearborn Ave.
As noted by other reviewers, the place is small (seating is about fifty, as my guess) and there is a Tiki bar waiting area, so if you are waiting for a table, you can hang out there and watch the traffic.
Food is more the reason to find this restaurant than watching cars on 776. The fried dishes, mostly fish and shellfish, are nicely done and not a bit greasy. Presentation is simple, with many of the fried seafood orders served in plastic baskets. The cole slaw is very good, by my standard, so you may want to be sure to have some.
Hamburgers are king sized and of good qualtity meat. The hamburger platter is nicely presented and enough for most folks to make a meal of.
Parking may be a bit tight when the place is humming and access is easy at street level.
If you like very casual eating environments, a roll of paper towels on the table for those finger food clean-ups, good food at reasonable prices, bottomless soft drinks and nice friendly service, give this place a try. Crdedit cards are not accepted, so bring some cash. You won't need lots of it, of course.
