An excellent grouper sandwich is also a sign that everything else at the restaurant is probably tasty and fresh, too. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
We're focusing on these ridiculous grouper sandwiches, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. To learn more, visit the website for Fish Shack in Lighthouse Point.
To each own when it comes to the whole fried/blackened/grilled dilemma, but we do have to say the blackened grouper sandwiches at Big Ray's are legendary. If it weren't for these sandwiches, homemade onion rings could easily be the star of the show.
For more information, visit the website for Big Ray's Fish Camp in Tampa. Check out Big Water Fish Market's website to learn more.
Obviously, the fish and chips is the most popular choice, but you can't go wrong adding a bun. To learn more, visit the website for Gulf Coast Grouper & Chips in Naples, Florida.
It can be a challenge to dine out when you have kids, but Peg Leg's is super family friendly, with lots to see and do while you wait. To learn more, visit the website for Peg Leg Pete's in Pensacola Beach.
The fresh, flaky grouper here is only matched by the view of Sarasota Bay. Check out the website for Dry Dock Waterfront Grill to learn more.
If you're in the area, and you're searching for a laid-back spot with an incredible view and the best grouper sandwich in town, this is the place to go. The place may be small and unassuming compared to other nearby options, but don't pass it by, because this is the best grouper around.

We arrived late in the afternoon and decided to sit at the bar. I ordered the Grouper BLT and my wife had the Mali Fish Tacos.
Maybe I caught them on a bad chef night, but thought the food was overcooked/fried and underwhelmed me. I would suggest Bay front Bistro, Dixie or the Fish House for better quality.
Arrived at 8:15 pm and order took awhile, but we weren’t in any hurry. Tried the oysters, shrimp salad and husband had the fish tacos.
She had a peach cares salad with blackened salmon. The salad presentation was beautiful however the tomatoes were mushy.
My shrimp was lightly blackened and the homemade Coleslaw was very good. Our server was very attentive and the chef came by to ensure we were enjoying our meal.
The one negative comment I have is... We sat outside to enjoy the warm temps but the loud noise from the marina taking boats in and out of the water made it hard to talk. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your dishes and appreciate the kind comments on our team.
My wife and I stopped here tonight to relax, have a cocktail and bite to eat. We sat at the bar and Whitney, our bartender, was very pleasant and remembered our names from a few nights ago.
We started with a crab stuffed shrimp appetizer and it was amazing to say the least. The burger was cooked to perfection and the sweet potato fries were awesome.
To top off our evening the chef, Christian, came over to see if we were pleased with our meal choices. The enthusiasm displayed by the chef about this restaurant and its future is exciting, and we can't wait to come back.
We have been waiting for this restaurant to open for a long time and it is truly a great addition to Fort Myers Beach. Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.
Seafood, American, Fast food, Vegetarian options $$ The group of four had Jerk Chicken BLT Poor shrimp sandwich Everything was good.
I believe our group of 4 adults and 1 child ended up getting 10 egg rolls between us and a sandwich. The grouper bites are fantastic and the menu variety of appetizers and sandwiches make this place one the picky eater will enjoy.
Due to current events in today’s world, we’re all spending a great deal of time at home, which means that we are all cooking a lot more. Dried beans are totally an underrated and underappreciated pantry staple that 100% deserve our attention.
It's another exciting week for restaurant and bar news in Sarasota-Manatee with a new waterfront spot opening in Osprey, the start of stone crab season and much more. It’s the newest addition to the roster of local restaurant and entertainment group Evil’s, run by father-and-son team Steve and Michael Evan off.
Lunch offerings include salads and handhelds like burgers, a grouper sandwich and salmon BLT, while the dinner menu features additional entrées such as seared sea scallops and New York strip. The Point also offers a craft cocktail menu and a weekday happy hour with half-off well liquors, draft beers and wines by the glass.
The ground level will eventually house a gift shop, Evan off said, and features fire pits and games like ping-pong. The existing wiki bar and restaurant, which dates back to the 1950s and was bought by Evil’s in 2015, will remain largely the same, aside from some landscaping and infrastructure updates, Evan off said.
Other Evil’s establishments include its namesake taverns on Bee Ridge, downtown Sarasota’s Main Street and in Ellen ton, White Buffalo Saloon, and Brady’s Neighborhood Bar in Southside Village, which replaced longtime venue/bar Five O’Clock Club earlier this year. Office Bar SRC in downtown Sarasota has been sold, as has the former Evil’s on University Parkway, which is now Colorado’s Pizzeria & Tavern.
Bell, established in 1940, supplies restaurants across the country and around the world with grouper, mullet and more, including stone crab claws. Last Friday, Bell’s fleet of commercial fishing vessels carried fishermen to put out their stone crab traps.
Meanwhile, she’s concerned that the price of domestic lobster is down nationally “because restaurants are not back at full force,” and that will be the same case with stone crab, another seafood delicacy. “Florida’s stone crab fishery has experienced a long-term decline in harvest and is likely undergoing overfishing,” reads the statement issued July 22.
Sage Restaurant, which occupies the historic Sarasota Times newspaper building on First Street in downtown, plans to reopen this week after temporarily closing in June following the second ban on drinking at bars. Ron DeSantis said Friday he was lifting coronavirus restrictions on restaurants, Sage announced Sept. 28 they will be implementing COVID-19 safety procedures in line with guidelines from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as from local officials.
Guests returning to Sage will find a new fall menu from Executive Chef Christopher Novella showcasing flavors like root vegetables, pumpkin and yucca in dishes inspired by the cuisines of Italy, China, Mexico, India and more. New featured items will include spicy pumpkin soup, duck consommé, a vegan salt-roasted beet steak, phone gas Asian-style dumplings, and Sage’s popular Thai bouillabaisse.
Alas, enjoying these cocktails and other libations on the popular rooftop bar will not be an option, as it will remain temporarily closed for renovations. Riviera Mediterranean Grill recently opened in Lakewood Ranch, featuring fresh and nutritious fare in an upscale, attractive setting.
Owner Share Kelly, who has always appreciated the cuisine of the Mediterranean, said she decided to open a restaurant during the COVID-19 pandemic because “people always want good, healthy food.” Riviera provides curbside pick up, and there are a number of outdoor seats. Kelly, whose family owned restaurants in central New York, converted the former Full Belly Stuffed Burgers' location into a pleasing gathering place with an eclectic Mediterranean style including warm terracotta and yellow colors, wall sconces and appealing artwork.
The owner, who also handles the kitchen, offers a “from scratch” variety of classic Mediterranean favorites beginning with appetizers like babaganoush, pomades, charred octopus and an impressive sampler. Located at 8742 State Road 70 East in the Ranch Lake Plaza, Riviera Mediterranean Grille is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Among signature entrées at Mean Deans will be cedar-planked salmon marinated for two days, fig and rosemary chicken, blackened alligator chowder and lobster lasagna with vodka sauce. For lunch, there will be sandwiches (brie, Cuban, cedar-plank salmon, prime rib), plus seasonal salads, flatbread and tacos.
