Fodor's Review

A sister to the famous Hemingway haunt in Key West, this breezy spot is less gritty than the original and a little more focused on food than drink (although you will find a full menu of tasty tropical libations here as well). It's right on the beach, in the Bilmar Beach Resort, and the location affords diners amazing views. On particularly stunning beach days you'll want to make reservations. Try to get seated on the sizable wooden deck that overlooks Treasure Island's massive beach. As you might imagine, seafood is big here, and the menu includes heaping portions of such favorites as lobster mac-and-cheese and Gulf-caught shrimp. The salads are also a huge hit. Sports enthusiasts can ask the bartender to tune one of their many TVs to their favorite game. If you come on a Sunday evening, look a little bit to the south, where a weekly drum circle turns into a huge beach bash come sunset.
