Mr. G’s Ristorante (Margate)
***** Mr. G’s Ristorante, 207 North State Road 7, Margate, Florida 33063, (954) 972-2230.
Mr. G’s is an “Italian-Seafood” joint…it has been around in one form or another since 1970…the current owners, John & Jeannie Francis have been running the show since November, 2001.
Over the past 19 years, I must have driven by Mr. G’s free standing building something like 250 times…each time saying to myself “Hey Jeff, you ought to try that joint out”…well, last week, I finally stopped and gave Mr. G’s a shot.
Take a look at Mr. G’s website www.mrgsristorante.com for menu/prices/photos.
My recent outing had me trying entrees– veal parmigiana ($15.50), chicken francese ($14.50), lasagna ($14.40), norweigan salmon ($16.50) and appetizers–crab cake ($9.50), lobster raviloi ($9.50). The verdict: not sure what Mr. G’s was like before John & Jeannie took over, but the food that they are currently “preparing” is delicious and priced right. Service is pleasant and the joint has the “feel” of a real neighborhood mom & pop…where they care about their customers and do everything to please them.
Mr. G’s has a nice menu of appetizers, salads, Italian and seafood dishes. The joint is open for dinner only, Tuesday-Sunday 4:30pm-9pm.
I really enjoyed Mr. G’s. Give this one a shot.
