You don’t want to cook, or you have something to celebrate, or you love food — especially when someone else does the cooking. Whatever your motivation for dining out, it’s become especially problematic in 2020. So we’ve done some scouting of the best places for foodies to hang out in Martin County, that feature outdoor seating and are less than a 20-minute drive from Floridays RV Park.
This local favorite has bars inside and out and outdoor dining dockside with a view of Manatee Pocket. Watch the fishermen come and go as you munch on fresh tuna and other seafood with a twist. 4290 SE Salerno Road, Port Salerno. https://thetwistedtuna.com/
Taste Casual Dining
Just a short drive from Floridays in downtown Hobe Sound, Taste is where a little bit of New England meets South Florida. Traditional and contemporary cuisine in a friendly, neighborhood environment with outdoor dining on the patio. 11750 SE Dixie Highway, Hobe Sound http://www.tastehobesound.com/
Flash Beach Grill
This surf and turf restaurant really is like eating at the beach but without the wind and waves. Tap your toes in the sand right under your table while you listen to live music. Sip a tropical cocktail and choose from a menu with fresh fish, steak, burgers, salads and creative appetizers in this fun place with a local vibe. 9126 SE Bridge Road, Hobe Sound. Find them on Facebook.
Blue Pointe Bar and Grill
This outdoor restaurant located alongside the Intracoastal Waterway between Hobe Sound and Tequesta offers great food, live music every day, and true waterfront casual dining. There’s even a swimming pool for a quick dip after renting a paddleboard or kayak. The menu is pure Florida from oysters and calamari to soup and salad, to sandwiches and entrees. 18701 SE Federal Highway, Tequesta. https://www.bluepointebarandgrill.com/
Harry & the Natives
As Harry says, this is “Hobe Sound’s only waterfront restaurant…when it rains.” If you want to go where the locals go, you have to go to Harry’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s down-home cooking done right with a wait staff that is second to none. There’s a full bar, a covered cafe, a large tiki-covered dining area with live music, and even a gift shop. Walls are so covered with clever sayings that you may spend most of your first visit just reading them all. You can even bring your pet if you eat in the outdoor dining areas. Just down the street from Floridays at Federal Hwy & Bridge Road. You can’t miss it. https://harryandthenatives.com/
