Sperry's Restaurant opened its doors in May of 1974 and is now enjoying its 40th year of service to its many local and out of town customers. Among them are 2nd and 3rd generation family members whose support and patronage we sincerely appreciate. Sperry's has received numerous awards and positive reviews over the years. While these are appreciated, none of these are as important as the continued patronage and satisfaction of our customers.
Burton W. Sperry, the great-great-grandfather of the owners, was engaged in the hotel and restaurant business in Jacksonville, Florida, from the late 1800's into the 1900's. His reputation for fine food and service was widespread. The owners and management of Sperry's strive to maintain his example for your dining pleasure.
Many guests inquire about our table tops and bar. They were built on the premises from Liberty ship hatch covers used in World War II. The bar top is hand carved from this wood. The unique finish was achieved by repeated applications of an epoxy resin, rubbed to a mirror finish.
