Dining & Entertainment

We’ve been here for a long time, 36 years and counting! Consequently we have amassed a great collection of our favorite spots, old and new.



Ay Jalisco – The best family run Tex-Mex around. Just 5 minutes away with a great lunch special for $5.

Capt’n Butcher’s Seafood Grille & Marina – Fresh local seafood. Intimate location right on the Indian River.

Captain Hiram’s – Comprises both the dining and entertainment categories. It’s a really fun hang out location with different local and national music acts. It has formal inside dining, Sandbar treats outside on the river and even a fire pit. A little touristy but we love vibe and the music.

Hiokis Sushi – Although this is  not qute local, it’s a 25 minute drive, it could easily be on the lop of our list. The best sushi we have ever had. And we have been going to this little Japanese treasure for a good 20 years and counting. Definitely put this on your To Do list.

Marsh Landing – Experience Old Florida Cuisine and History. Let us take you back in time to the pioneer days of Florida as you dine in our historic atmosphere. Frog legs, catfish and gator tail, fried green tomatoes and swamp cabbage are a few of the local specialties. We also have hand-cut Angus steaks, ribs, fresh seafood dishes and homemade desserts. There is something for everyone!

Sea Jasmine Thai Cuisine – Wonderful hole in the wall with authentic Thai selections. Unique and genuine. A very special experience.

Siam City Sushi – This is one of the newer places in town and we love it! Finally great sushi just 5 minutes away. Small family run restaurant with excellent quality eats.
