Palm Harbor and Naples recommendations needed

Osler Aug 7, 2011 03:45 PM

We will be spending 3 nights in Palm Harbor and 4 nights in Naples at the end of August, traveling as a family of 7. We've spent time in Naples before and have old favorites (Nemo's, Randy's) but are looking to try some new ones as well.

We'd like to focus mostly on seafood places (despite the great reviews on Inca, Bha Bha bistro in Naples - we'll have to save them for another trip), and we're trying to keep entree prices below $25-30 per plate. We're not looking for upscale ambiance, just comfortable places to enjoy a good meal as a family.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated and we'll be sure to report back after our trip!

    there was a thread in the florida section just a few weeks ago about a similar situation...a family coming to SWFL for a family vacation...
    if u search for it there were some good ideas in it..

    and Insatiable appetite has a blog about SWFL that is very good as well..

    if i find the thread ill post it...

    as far as seafood...

    grouper and chips
    and nemo as well

      Thanks for the recommendations - we've been to Grouper and Chips for lunch and enjoyed it. How is dinner there?

      Last time we were at Randy's it was not as good as it had been in the past but we were going to give it another try....has it continued to slip?

            Mystic Fish on Tampa Road is outstanding.
            In old Palm Harbor I recommend Peggy O'Neils

      My favorite sushi place happens to be in Palm Harbor. It's Mike's Sushi & Sake at U.S.Highway 19 and Nebraska Ave.
