Knick’s Tavern and Grill is owned by the father-daughter team of Knick and Knickole Barger, who pull double duty as the owners of local construction company, Youbar Builders. Youbar has built or renovated over 40 area restaurants, and is responsible for creating the charming, cozy atmosphere that characterized Knick’s Tavern and Grill.

The Barger’s had an unique opportunity in late 2001 to acquire an existing Sarasota restaurant called, Anthony’s Italian Restaurant…and so the story began. By the end of January 2002, the former Italian restaurant was completely transformed into one of Sarasota’s most charming neighborhood hangouts, Knick‘s Tavern and Grill. The interior finishes host loads of various exotic wood, from the floor, ceiling beams, bar, and even in the restrooms. Speaking of the bar, next time your in, check out the bar stools and tables, which have a number of name plaques. You might just recognize a few. Knick’s Tavern and Grill is known as the area‘s “Cheers“…where everyone knows your name!

Several of the staff at Knick’s Tavern and Grill has been there since opening in January of 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!

Thanks again and hope to see you soon,

Cheers!

Knick , Knickole, & Family
