One word… Paradise! I love the gator bites (yes, I am a Florida girl)!

Miceli’s Restaurant

Pasta Ala Miceli… this is one of the best meals I have ever had. I love seafood – and this dish has EVERYTHING in it! I highly recommend! It’s also a great place to listen to live entertainment.

Is it wrong to include dessert on a list of top restaurants in a city? I hope not!!! If loving dessert is wrong, I don’t want to be right!

CW Fudge Factory is unbelievable!

Ragged Ass Saloon

3421 Stringfellow Rd Saint James City


This place is just fun!!! There is nothing better than hanging on the patio listening to great music (and munching on pork wings)!

Island Seafood Market

4330 Pine Island Road, Matlacha


A seafood market… AND a restaurant – SCORE!!! My favorite thing on the menu is the peel and eat shrimp – it is so fresh!


Tarpon Lodge

I love history – which is probably why I love this restaurant/lodge (built in 1926) so much. The cheeseboard is amazing!
