Florida is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the United States. It draws in domestic tourists, as well as those from much further afield. The reasons are not hard to fathom. Florida, aptly named the ‘Sunshine State’ has glorious weather all year round, fabulous nightlife, miles of pristine beach and the Gulf of Mexico provides incredible water sports options. The choice of other types of entertainment and the sheer number of outdoor pastimes is staggering. For these and other reasons residential property such as that found in Port Royal, Naples is also in great demand. The Florida lifestyle is one that feeds the state’s tourism industry and its real estate sector. That lifestyle is made even more attractive by the numerous dining choices that await those who both visit Naples and choose to make their homes there.
So if you enjoy great food – from choices that include fine dining options to family-friendly restaurants and great bars – then Naples should be on your dining out bucket list. Here are some excellent opportunities around Port Royal Naples and in the full Naples area.
1. T-Michaels Steak & Lobster House.
If you are in the mood for an excellent dining experience, super-sized steaks and possible the best fresh Maine lobster, then a trip to T-Michaels is an experience that will deliver exceptional dining. The signature lobster and steak combo is a perfect way to explore why this restaurant is such a great place to visit. Add the waterfront views, and you have the recipe for a meal that keeps patrons coming back again and again. Aside from the steaks and the exceptional lobster, there are also menu choices for those who want to dip into some pasta, chicken or pork. Open air dining in the atrium is highly recommended.
2. The Riverwalk Restaurant.
A relaxed dining experience overlooking the Gordon River is just the perfect way to get to know the pleasures of the Naples, Florida lifestyle. Great menu with something for everyone including sandwiches, salads, seafood, steak, and pasta. No one goes hungry when visiting the Riverwalk Restaurant. The full-service bar provides an excellent choice from an extensive cocktail menu. The Mango spiced BBQ baby back ribs are great – but do not ignore the ‘Low Country Crab & Shrimp Boil’with crab legs, Cajun sausage and shrimp (and much more). Great kids menu and fabulous Margarita’s round off the experience.
3. The Capri Fish House.
Get to know Florida Island Style at this laid back dining destination. Chill to live music at the edge of the water. Take in the sunset, enjoy a cocktail or two and then tuck into some magnificent food from the extensive menu. Grab some Alligator Nuggets as a starter and then order a basket or platter for the table. The ‘Fried Fisherman’s Platter’ has a lot going on – including the addition of fried frog legs – which is a talking point for those who have not enjoyed them before. Pasta, seafood, and chicken dishes are also great. They also make a mean Bloody Mary.
4. Joey’s Pizza & Pasta House.
If you are not going to tuck into a famous Florida seafood dish, then go for another crowd pleaser – pizza. Joey’s creations are based on family recipes that have been pleasing diners since 1997. Nothing fancy as far as decor is concerned – but excellent service and great food at a great price. Big portions as well. They also make excellent pasta and subs.
If you are in the Port Royal area book a table, sit back and relax and find out what makes the Naples lifestyle and entertainment so attractive.
