This magnificent menu will include, for each couple, a bottle of wine, two appetizers, two entre├ęs and 2 desserts. The Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two menu will be available Friday, February 11th through Monday, February 14th, which means you don’t necessarily have to celebrate on Valentine’s Day itself... you can avoid the crowds! We have already begun taking reservations, so make yours today! Check out the menu below!

Two Dine for $25... a.k.a. Early Dining

Last year, I did a post on our Early Bird Menu. Ignore that post... we have done a complete overhaul on our Early Dining gig!

7 days a week, from 4:00-6:00pm we offer a '2 Dine for $25' menu (which can also be '1 Dines for $12.50). Each guests chooses one First Course option and one Second Course option. The possibilities are (almost) endless! And I'll tell you what - it ends up being a very filling meal for a very reasonable price!

My personal favorite combination is the Crispy Thai Calamari to start, followed by the Local Clams & Linguine. Yum! What is your favorite 2 Dine course combo?

As always, menu items are subject to change :)

Think Pink - For the Cure!

For 2 years running, August has been all about Pink here at Madfish. We have a special Pink Menu with some special Pink items... the proceeds from which go to Team Treasure Chest. Team Treasure Chest is a lovely group of local ladies who will walk in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure walk in October. Last year, we helped them raise almost $2000!

Thirsty in this summer heat? Try a Ta-Ta Tini or a Susan G Cosmo... or maybe a glass of Cupcake Riesling or Chardonnay. All that drinking making you hungry? Fill up with a Spicy Tuna Martini and finish it all off with a red velvet cake Ice Cream Cupcake... made just for us by Cold Stone Creamery. Just think - you're eating and drinking to help cure breast cancer!

Join us Saturday, August 7 from 6-10pm for the 2nd Annual Pink Kick-Off! Bring your friends and enjoy a night of fine food, specialty drinks and Ice Cream Cupcakes! 10% of all sales from the 7th will benefit Susan G. Komen - for the cure!

Whether it is you or someone you know, we have all been touched by cancer. With your support and all of our efforts, together we can make a difference to help find a cure. Until then... the cure awaits!

May is Early Bird Month!

We are very pleased to announce that May is Early Bird month here are Madfish. We are offering our Early Bird menu all day, every day throughout the lovely month of May. From open to close, 7 days a week.

It is no secret that Sarasota County is a retiree area. In fact, over 30% of the county population is age 65 or older, which is more than double the national average. And we're talking permanent residents, folks. This completely counts out the snowbirds that grace us with their presence for 4-6 months of the year. (And on that note... travel safely, seasonal friends! We will miss you this summer and look forward to your return in the fall!)

I'm not saying that it is a bad thing that Sarasota has so many older residents. They do pretty much sustain almost every business in the area. It is because of our area's population that a good number of restaurants in the area, just like us at Madfish, have an Early Bird menu. Often, we get customers visiting from other areas of the country that are pleasantly surprised by the offering of an Early Bird menu. (We also often get younger out-of-town visitors wondering why there are so many older customers. We like to point out that they are in Sarasota, after all.)

So what is Early Bird dining? Traditionally, an Early Bird menu is served earlier than the main dinner menu and offers a more narrow selection... often at a reduced price. Our Early Bird entrees vary from sirloin to pasta to seafood, and include a house salad or a cup of soup. Prices range from $9.99 - $13.99. According to Wikipedia, it is usually associated with the elderly and with Florida.

Some Sarasota restaurants limit their Early Bird menus to only senior citizens. We, however, are an all-inclusive kind of place. Our Early Bird menu is available to all ages - from 11:00 in the morning until 5:30 in the evening, 7 days a week. We want you to remember that it is perfectly acceptable to order off of the Early Bird menu if you are only 34 years old. Perfectly fine with us. In fact, Early Bird is a cost-effective way to dine if you are, say, a young married couple on a budget. You can be out the door with full bellies for under $30!

So, come join us this month for Early Bird month! Remember - all day, every day for the entire month!
