Fodor's Expert Review Mutineer Restaurant
Families and older couples flock to this kitschy roadside outpost that is shaped like a ship. Florida lobster tails, stuffed grouper, shrimp, and snapper top the menu, along with another half dozen daily seafood specials. Add to that steaks, ribs, and chicken. Yellowfin tuna wraps and grouper sandwiches are filling items for lunch, especially before heading to Everglades Park. Built in 1980—back when Florida City barely got on maps—etched glass divides bi-level dining rooms, with velvet-upholstered chairs, an aquarium, and nautical antiques; there's a fish-and-duck pond outside. You also can relax for dinner in the restaurant's Wharf Lounge, with live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, and sometimes on Sunday.
