SARASOTA, Fla. - A Suncoast restaurant that has recently had problems with the county and nearby residents was hit with graffiti over the weekend.

Someone wrote the words "pay us" on the sign for Bob’s Boathouse restaurant on South Tamiami Trail.

Recently Bob's Boathouse was granted a 30-day temporary certificate of occupancy after paying $77,000 in utility fees it owed the county. Prior to that, residents living near the restaurant complained the live music being played there, was too loud.

Also former employees have complained they are owed money they were never paid by the owner.

    Why can't this enterprise get its act together and become a good corporate citizen?

    I think it is a terrible thing people are doing to this business!! I think immature people don't realize they are not hurting the owner near as much as they hurt the staff who is innocently trying to make a living!!
