Restaurants We Recommend

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

Lock N Key, on the beach; less than a mile
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
This was a favorite of ours.  New owners have changed the brand from "Working Cow" to a generic. Ice cream is still good, but not quite what it was. Service is friendly, and prices are OK

Lighthouse Grill (formerly Stumps Pass Grill)
This WAS one of our favorite places. It's accessible by boat or car. It came under new management who set out to fix what was not broken, and in doing so, ruined it. They took a casual simple menu and brought in VERY loud bands, such that you can't even talk to one another at your own table. They also raised all the prices.  Really sad, as this place has such a good location/view. We stopped going because it was just not enjoyable anymore. Our last visit was in April of 2017.

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.


Snook's Bayside/Royal Palm Marina

This has become one of our favorites. Located on the water. It is nothing fancy, but the food is good.  You have to look for this place to find it as they don't advertise much. It is at the very end of

W. Wentworth


The Waverly and The Gulf View Grill (located at same address; one on ground level, the other upstairs)

The Gulf View Grill is fine dining, and Waverly is more casual.  Gulf View is good. We have not yet tried Waverly, as we were rained out on the day we tried.
