A great homey bar with a variety of food, craft beers and full licence. Our waitress was excellent. I had a burger and my wife had a Cuban dish with ground beef, black beans and rice. Both meals were excellent. Music was a duo that were very good as well. Definitely an old Florida bar well worth a visit.
Old building and parking lot need some love. Good service and food. Great french fries. 10.95 for cheeseburger and chips was a few dollars too much. Surprised that a restaurant called Packinghouse did not have steaks or pork chops. They offered some Cuban specialties, that we didn't try. Adding an almost 4% service charge to pay with my credit card is a deal breaker for me.
I love JR Packinghouse! Small, slow service but great food and the servers are awesome. This is where the locals go. I live nearby and I love this place. Friday night kick butt 60's band. The house was rocking! Love this place.
The best of the dive bars in Sarasota and the food is great! Staff is fun and the owner is typically your bartender. An awesome old guy named Cletus. They have live music after 6.
Found this place by accident 2 weeks ago...have been back 4 times since. The owner is friendly and funny and the service staff does a great job... You get a decent portion for your money and the live music is unique....
