Daylight savings time means it gets darker later and that means more time to enjoy dining and drinking outside at Mattison’s. Chef Paul Mattison, executive chef and owner of Mattison’s Restaurants and Catering, has extended the Happy Hour hours at both his Downtown Sarasota, City Grille and Bradenton, Riverwalk Grille locations. New Happy Hours will be 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm allowing more time to unwind after work, or for people coming from the beach or shopping to relax and not rush. Both locations feature outside seating, so the weather is perfect, and the sunset twilight hour makes for a very relaxing atmosphere at either location.
Start the night out with Happy Hour at Mattison’s where the menus include not only drink specials but also food specials. At City Grille food menus include Cajun Fried Pickles, Goat Cheese Bruschetta, Fried Green Tomatoes, Pretzel Bites and Shrimp Rangoon. At Mattison’s Riverwalk Grille the menu differs a little by offering Spicy Tuna Nachos instead of the Fried Pickles and Pretzel Bites. All food items are less than $9. Drink specials are the same at both locations: $4 house wines, well drinks and draft beers, $5 Martini of the day and Boat Drink of the day and $2 off wine or spirits.
