    A Beach walk away. Beach bar on the beach level along with affordable food. Fun to dine at daytime or evening. Also super great happy hour. Many locals attend happy hour.

    My recommendation for the best fried shrimp around. Right on the beach with a nice breeze in the summer.

    Great place for lunch or dinner. Right on the beach. Adequate parking. On weekends a local band performs in the outside bar area. For a romantic evening try seating at the small tables on the beachside porch. The amberjack is especially good

    Great for tourist, within walking distance of Maravilla. Al Fresco and gulffront. If you call ahead and leave a number for them to contact you within 15 minutes of your seating, that will save time during high season

    This has to be my one of my family's favorite places to eat during the day. And, if you arrive late at night it stays open till 10pm so you can go to the grocery store the next day without being hungry! Great for the outdoor enthusiast, family in need of a variety of things to do and see because of it's location and menu. Also, live music on weekends helps the late owl wind down after a day in the sun!

    Great atmosphere and great food! This "beach style" restaurant sits directly on the beach. Wide variety of food ranging from seafood to burgers and pasta. The staff is always very friendly. We love relaxing on the deck while listening to the band and watching the waves. A wide variety of tropical drinks to choose from (make sure to try a Bushwacker or Bahama Mama). Do yourself a favor and make sure you treat yourself to lunch, dinner, or happy hour at this fantastic restaurant!

    Great beach bar and restaurant just across the street from the condo. Food is very good and the happy hour (3pm-5pm) is terrific!! A must when staying at Summerspell 202.

    This restaurant is close by and beach front. I have yet to have a bad experience. You can see the water and coast line from every table. It is open air so the sea breeze is right there. It is great for sunset. Also they never seem to rush you and although the place I often full of people, the waits are not long and pass fast because there is an outdoor deck with bar and a nice boardwalk. A glass of wine and a nice meal for around $20.

    Want Great Seafood and Awesome Water Views while you eat? This is the place. Maybe you just want to have a few drinks and relax, stop here. This bar restaurant is 0.3 miles from our house. A must place to eat. "Grouper is Awesome"

    Great for lunch. Prices may be a little higher than other restaurants but you are literally on the beach. Food is good to very good.
