The Lower Gulf Coast Restaurants



Baleen Review

The mood cast in this well-appointed dining room and the romantic gulf-view patio that spills onto the sand feels like the perfect Florida restaurant experience. There's only one small problem: lighting is so low at dinner that you can't read the menu, even with its built-in flashlight. Too bad, because that means you also miss the effect of the beautifully presented dishes: Asian pear–and-arugula salad, black grouper with tamarind glaze, grilled scallops paired with polenta and serrano chilies, Grand Marnier crème brûlée, and the like. (Thankfully, there's a great prix-fixe option.) At breakfast, the house-made corned beef hash is divine. For lunch, the lobster Cobb salad is a popular choice.
