Every holiday we send oranges and grapefruit up North to family. We've tried three different groves and our favorite is Nokomis Groves. Our family says their fruit has been the freshest and best tasting, and their customer service is excellent. If you have special requests or questions, call and they're very helpful. Their prices are very reasonable and among the lowest. Quick shipping, too. Order early before they run out! You won't be disappointed.
If you're looking for fruit or vegetables in season, homemade preserves or pickled vegetables, eggs, homemade breads, candies, pecans etc., Fruitville Groves is the place to go. The produce is exceptionally fresh, very reasonably priced and there's always a large and varied selection, all great quality. It's more like a farmer's market than a fruit & vegetable stand. Lots of room for parking. They also run frequent specials for extra savings off their already low prices. Their tomatoes are the best!
All Pets Motel is a great place to board your pet. Large, clean runs and caring staff earn this kennel the highest recommendations. Our dog has always been happy to return, literally running in the door to see Sherry. This is just a great kennel, with the largest runs I've ever seen. Your dog will love it, too. They also board cats, and sell quality kibble and toys.
We live in Florida and a few years back, when our home insurer pulled out of the state, we were forced to accept new insurance at almost double the price. Very unsatisfied with our agent, we decided to shop around. We're so glad we did, because we found the Lori Swindell agency. We were able to save over $1000 on our annual homeowners insurance, and received better coverage with a higher rated insurer. We also saved a substantial amount on auto insurance. We've been very pleased with the responsiveness of this agency. They do a great job in a difficult business!
Phillipi Creek is where the locals go for great seafood. They have a great selection of fresh seafood - the gumbo is highly recommended, spicy and delicious. The waitstaff are friendly and the service is quick. The waterside views provide a relaxing atmosphere. Prices are reasonable for the Sarasota area. Overall, a great choice for lunch or dinner.
A great selection of vitamins and supplements at great prices. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. If they don't have an item you need, often they are willing to get it for you within a few days. This store is highly recommended.
If you're looking for an extensive selection of natural vitamins and supplements, this is the place! Knowledgeable staff who are willing to help you, and the lowest prices I've ever seen. This is a family run store which has excelled at customer service for over 30 years. A great store in all ways!!!
Mrs. Chen's is a great place to enjoy a delicious Chinese buffet. It is a small restaurant, however, so you need to go early. Price is very reasonable and the waitstaff are friendly and accommodating. Great selection, nice desserts. A good meal for a very reasonable price.
Holistic for Pets offers an extensive variety of organic foods for dogs and cats. They also carry a large selection of treats and toys, many which are not available in other stores. The staff are very knowledgeable and always helpful. If you need something special, they can usually order and have it in within a week. I highly recommend this wonderful store!
The doctors at Sarasota Animal Hospital provide outstanding medical services for pets. I have been taking my basset there for the past few years and have been greatly impressed with the professionalism and caring of all the doctors and staff. This is an AAHA member hospital, so all services can be provided on site. The only disadvantage to this vet clinic is that it is not available after hours or weekends. One helpful service they provide at no cost is an internet site where you can schedule email reminders for your pet's heartworm or other medications. Overall, a great place to take your pets for all their healthcare needs.
