Melbourne, FL -- restaurant recs, please!!

  • c

My husband and I will be in Melbourne for work this weekend and are looking for dinner recommendations. We prefer casual places -- not too terribly expensive. We love seafood -- but are open to other suggestions as well.

  1. There were a few other threads about this further down the Florida board. Just do a search on the page for "Melbourne".


    1. Yes, search farther down and someone has posted an Internet link to an exhaustive list of Brevard County restaurants.

      My No. 1 rec after several years of living there is Bella's in downtown Melbourne. Giant portions, don't miss the imported cold antipasto.

      1. What you consider inexpensive ,might seem very expensive to us here.

        Depending on what part of town,might influence the choices.

        Here is a site to get you started.

        1. Try New England Eatery for seafood (5670 S. Highway A1A, Melbourne Beach, 321-723-6080). It is on the beach between Melbourne and Sebastian.

          1. Try Cara Mia in Cocoa Village, great Italian food. Black Tulip is also excellent. Stay away from Lobster Shanty, overpriced,small portions, lousy service. Grills at the port, casual, great food and prices, music on weekends!
