Mama's Italian Restaurant;Best Italian Food in town   
Mama's is known to everyone. It is a must go. Great Pizza and Pasta

We have dined there many times and never had a bad meal. Dine inside or outside. Very casual outside; a bit more reserved inside.

The White Elephant; Pub;karaoke;live bands
Decent food; pub atmosphere with live entertainment on the water. Great atmosphere.

Sand Bar Tiki & Grill (formerly Flounders); pub; live entertainment on the water
Decent food; live entertainment on the water by the roundabout. They have really done some great renovations there and this is a very popular spot.

Farlows On the Water
Very good food; nice atmosphere

Good Times Diner; best cheap breakfast
Good Food; Good Prices; Great Service

A Better Scoop; best ice cream
They serve "Working Cow" Ice Cream. Always good. Very reasonable prices.

Lighthouse Grill (formerly Stumps Pass Grill)
This has become one of our favorite places. It's accessible by boat or car. Good food, generally good Jimmy Buffet style music, and what a great view they have.   We highly recommend the barbeque sandwiches or grouper sandwiches.

New Faull Inn
We have been there many times and have found it to be excellent. They have the best Philly I have had in years. Pizza is also really good.


TV Information
Using the remotes: (instructions are the same for both TVs)

Both the Xfinity and the Vizio remotes will turn the TV on or off. Using the Vizio remote, select Channel 3. Then use the Xfinity remote control to select TV stations by either number selection, or navigating the up or down channel control. Volume controls can be controlled from either the Vizio or the Xfinity remote. To access the DVD players, select HDMI1 by clicking the HDMI button on the Vizio remote. For the living room TV, use the Sony remote to control the DVD player.  In the bedroom, the DVD player is controlled by the Magnavox remote. Both TVs have an HDMI cable attached that may be used to access your computer, or other streaming device. We use an Ipad adapter that can be purchased at any Apple store for about $20 which works with either the Ipad or an I-Phone. You can then use the TV for Netflix or other media or you can attach your own streaming device to plug in.
