What’s better than soaking in Florida sunshine, breathing in crisp, salty air at the beach and taking in scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and other sights?
Doing all of that while eating, of course.
Thirteen Florida restaurants made the list for 100 Best Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America, released by restaurant-reservation service OpenTable. The company looked at more than 5 million restaurant reviews to determine the winners, noting eateries that contained positive reviews in the “great for outdoor dining” category.
As such, five outdoor restaurants in South Florida are listed, including GG’s Waterfront Bar and Grill in Hollywood, Kaluz Restauraunt in Fort Lauderdale and Sundy House in Delray Beach. Central Florida was represented by the Taproom at Dubsdread in Orlando.
Going a little further south, Red Fish Grill in Miami was also mentioned, as well as Latitudes in Key West.
Southwest Florida also had some honorable mentions. Four Naples restaurants – Alexanders, BALEENnaples, Tommy Bahama's Restaraunt & Bar and The Turtle Club – all made the cut.
Nearly half of the restaurants included in the Top 100 Restaurants list are located in California. Florida follows with 13.
