Islands Fish Grill

Reviewed By figurephenatix

Tried for first time after just moving to Palm Bay / Melbourne area. My wife had shrimp and I had the Grouper Onion Crusted. Both were fresh and very well cooked. Great sauces on the side for both dishes. Mashed potatoes were exceptional. Great Pineapple Cider Beer too that was locally brewed. Quality service and wait staff as well. Highly recommended, will be back to try some more fish dishes for sure!

Long Doggers

Long Doggers Indialantic was opened July 1997 by Al Steiginga and LJ Burr and was the first ever Long Doggers.

Reviewed By Adrian J

I consider myself a regular at this casual beach like establishment because the food is so consistent. The seasonal fresh fish is always grilled perfectly, and the Caribbean-esque bowls are always satisfying. Love the plantains! Good selection of local craft beers and a staff who is always friendly and work together as a team. For casual dining you can’t go wrong. Just a laid back atmosphere with quality food. Wear your Long Dogger T-shirt on Tuesday for a discount! And, oh, yeah, if in doubt try the hot dog platter. This is Long Doggers after all.

The Nomad Cafe

Locally sourced ingredients, internationally inspired cuisine

Reviewed By jacob c

My wife heard about this spot and I have passed it hundreds of times but never stopped. So we went for lunch and it was packed but they had available seating at the bar right away which is always a plus. The service was fast and friendly, the flavor and freshness of the food was surprising and will have us being a regular.

Coasters Pub & Biergarten

Half restaurant. Half beer bar. Half biergarten. Florida's oldest continuously operating craft beer-focused restaurant.

Reviewed By Daytona_Mac

We stopped in for a weekend lunch, and arrived just before the lunch crowd. The beer selection and the beer we sampled was good. Lunch was a mixed review with a solid good for the chicken sandwich and the rice & beans side dish, and a poor for the crab cakes and onion rings. The crab cakes were mostly filling. Check the photo - there are some pieces of crab meat - but all of the rest is just breading, and rather bland. The onion rings were frozen, not fresh, and unimpressive.We did finish with a slice of Key Lime pie which was good enough to leave us smiling. Our recommendation - avoid the crab cakes, onion rings, and probably all the rest of the "seafood" choices. Stick with typical Biergarten foods such as the chicken and burger sandwiches. And definitely try the Key Lime pie!

Backwater

Reviewed By angelac420

Had a wonderful time at Backwater - the food was EXCELLENT and much different than the other offerings we found available. They offer a "make your own pancakes" option, but, really, if you get anything there, I'm sure you'll be satisfied. We enjoyed the Bayou Benedict, the Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes, the Gator and Waffles, and the Okeechobee Ice Cream. No one left hungry for sure! The iced coffee is tasty and they provide great mimosa offerings as well. The service staff was also great - Rich was friendly, helpful, and generally delightful as he guided us through our first visit. Will definitely return in the future.

Oh Biscuit

Reviewed By shelbyduncan

This is the kind of place travelers love to find, a local favorite that's inexpensive and serves good food. The menu offers plenty of sides and add-ons, so you create your own biscuit masterpiece, or even biscuit alternatives (bagels, I think). In my case, it was a fried chicken biscuit with gravy. Staff, assuming the owners, are very friendly. There's room inside for about a dozen diners, more seating outside. I'd be happy to come here again.

Stopped in here for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Not knowing that Tuesdays are Live music nights from 6 to 9 P.M. That being said, the place fills up very fast and it gets exceedingly loud.However, the service, food and dink here is absolutely over the top delicious. The menu is quite large and full of fantastic Irish dishes that come out of the kitchen looking wonderful. We shared a Trio Appetizer of Potato Balls, Sausage Rolls and Cabbage Wraps that were to 'die' for! Next we ordered The Pub Trinity...Shepherd’s Pie, Irish Stew, and Bangers & Mash. Served with buttered cabbage and brown bread. Holy Cow!! Talk about a lot of food....no one walks away hungry! Their Black & Tans are awesome as well.The menu is one where you could eat for a month every day and not order the same item twice. I wish that we had a restaurant like this one in our town. I would be here every day for sure.

I’m so happy we decided to try Hemingway’s last night before the movies. We sat at the bar and Sam took good care of us. The cocktail selection was amazing. The food was different and delicious. Sam even held our leftovers in the cooler until we finished the movie..! What GREAT service. We will definitely be back

This place has a nice variety in their drink menu and the food menu was a nice surprise. We stopped in for a drink & appetizer before going to dinner down the street. The oxtail poutine was absolutely delicious and the deviled eggs had a nice kick to them. We will be back soon!
