Hutchinson Island Area Restaurant Suggestions?
We will be in the South Hutchinson Island area during September for a getaway. Does anyone have some restaurant recommendations to share? We are looking for something more on the casual side, but not the same old stuff - a creative chef is a wonderful find. A bar with a great atmosphere would be much appreciated too. Can go across to mainland as well. Any ideas out there?
There's a nice restaurant called 12 A Buoy on the Fort Pierce side of the north bridge to South Hutchinson Island. It's a casual restaurant but everything I've had there has been great and my friends have only had good things to say about it as well. I don't believe they have a website but their listing on urbanspoon has the menu posted, although it could've been updated since then.
11 Maple fits the creative chef requirement. It really is excellent. I would bypass Flagler Grill. I like Renato's for Italian (Shrimp Monachina is A+). In the same shopping center as Renato's (which is just across the bridge from S. Hutchinson Isl.) is Prawnbroker, which is a pretty good bar, and it is not the worst food you will have. Conchy Joes is a great bear with reggae music, but poor food
11 Maple Street in Jensen Beach is probably the best in the area. Creative chef been there forever, good wine list. Flagler Grill used to get some great press and was very, very good when we were there but we haven't been for about 5 years. The Riverwalk Cafe and Oyster Bar is a favorite of ours. Harbor Bay Gourmet (Sewall's Point) offers some interesting sandwiches. Its also a deli and wine shop and sells some serious gelato, too. Renato's in the same complex is dependable Italian. Conchy Joe's is on the water that's been around for years. Sort of a quirky seafood serving dive bar.
There is nothing that isn't on the casual side in that area so that isn't going to be an issue.
