This taste of Downtown Sarasota Dinner Tour delights you in many ways: The history, the architecture, the restaurant visits, and our amazing local tour guides. You visit four restaurants, each unique in its own way, as you sample some scrumptious culinary delights.
Our food tours include a diverse range of cuisine and focus on helping you discover out-of-the-way restaurants with exceptional food. We never rush you as we tour Sarasota, and we want you to relax at each restaurant stop and enjoy your food and the conversation. All of our tours are limited to 10 guests so book early! We are locally owned, operated and we offer a 5 Star Guarantee for your experience!
At the end of this three-hour culinary tour, you’re filled with great food and fun, historical tidbits about Sarasota’s downtown.
Parking: We suggest that you park in the 2nd Street City Parking Garage above the Whole Foods parking. The entrance to the free city parking for 4 hrs. on levels 2 through 4 is on 2nd St.
Parking is also available in the State Street parking garage on State Street. Please be aware that the City of Sarasota charges for parking after 2 hrs. The third hour is $3 and it is $1 per hour after that. As the city is growing substantially, parking ‘can’ be a issue so please allow enough time to find alternative parking in the event the garage is full and still meet your guide at the designated time/location.
Please note: All Sarasota food tours require a minimum of four people. This does not mean one party must book four individuals, but that our total headcount achieves the minimum. So if you are a solo traveler, we will notify you if we have not reached this capacity and we will always strive to accommodate our valued guests!
“Troy was so fun! He gave great history blurbs and awesome conversation! We’ve done a lot of food tours and this was by far our favorite. The restaurants we stopped were great variety and the quality was superb! Definitely recommend while staying in Sarasota/Siesta Key!” – Anna L.
“This is so worth it! I would do again, and again! It was great!” Janice S.
“We had the MOST amazing culinary tour and cannot wait to do it again! Recently we used Maggie and her team for our When SHE Happens women’s networking lunch event and had the pleasure of experiencing a 90 minute tour of downtown Sarasota. Every bit of the tour was excellent and we HIGHLY recommend them. Not only did we learn interesting history about Sarasota, but all of the food was absolutely delicious too.” – Jaime M.
