Fodor's Review

Reputed to be Florida's oldest family-owned restaurant, this garage-turned-eatery, which serves up steaks and seafood dishes like Florida lobster and char-grilled amberjack, has been attracting folks since 1913. Also on the chock-full menu are items such as seafood gumbo with okra, grouper, soft-shell crabs, scallops, and oysters. The grand finale is a trip to the delectable dessert bar; try a generous wedge of cherry cheesecake. Sip a Tropical Depression or a rum-laced

Squall Line while you peruse a menu tucked into the centerfold of a tabloid-size newspaper filled with snippets of local history and family memorabilia, including bathing-beauty pix of the family's 1920 all-girl swim team. An even grander finale may be stopping in the quite authentic Margaritaville-style neighborhood lounge, which features a pool table and a true Old Florida vibe.
