Ft Pierce- update on what's good.
- Yank Dec 30, 2012 03:30 AM
We'll be staying in Ft Pierce in February to escape the worst of our French winter. Its not that bad, but we also need a return to 'home' cuisine every so often.
Thus, we're looking for recommendations as to where to eat &/or food shop in the Ft Pierce area. We're game for any type of food; EXCEPT French. We'd love to have your suggestions!
Thanks & Happy New Year to all.
i drive for a living and a true south florida road foodie, im in ft pierce 3 times a week and the area is a poor poor restaurant area, all chains except dales barbeque which has great ribs, to the south of there in port st lucie is all chains also and i never go north of ft pierce to vero so cant say much, good luck
You should try New England Fish market in Jensen Beach. It's as nice a seafood market as I have ever seen. They have great daily specials, (20% off salmon on Wednesday, and it's really nice salmon) and the lobster prices have been great for the last few months. It's worth the short drive. newenglandfish.net
Give Norris's a try - great ribs - but other options...
Chucks seafood was ok
Buoy 12 gets good reviews on yelp
Publix for shopping is best option - nearest Whole Foods is an hour or more south in palm beach gardens
12A Buoy in Ft. Pierce has always been wonderful any time I've been there. I've also heard great things about 11 Maple Street.
There's a pretty good sushi place in fort pierce. Don't remember the name but its around the corner from the sunrise theater. The Food Shack in Jupiter is excellent. There are a couple of nice places in Stuart-Riverwalk and Ian's are always good. Claretta's in Palm City is wonderful- it's our go to special occasion restaurant.
