Knick’s Tavern and Grill is owned and operated by the father-daughter team of Knick and Knickole Barger. Knick, a local general contractor with his daughter, has built and renovated over 40 area restaurants, and is responsible for creating the charming, cozy atmosphere that characterized Knick’s Tavern and Grill.
It all began in late 2001 when Barger’s had the unique opportunity to acquire an existing Sarasota restaurant called Anthony’s Italian Restaurant. By January 2002, the former Italian restaurant was entirely transformed into one of Sarasota’s most charming neighborhood hangouts— Knick’s Tavern and Grill. The interior finishes host various exotic wood pieces from our floors to our ceilings, bar, and even in our restrooms.
Next time you’re at the bar, check out the stools and neighboring tables, which don a number of name plaques to honor beloved patrons. Known as the area’s “Cheers”, everyone knows your name!
Several of our staff has been with us since our opening in January 2002, without whom the restaurant would not be what it is today. We at Knick’s consider each other family and hope you do too.
