    I don't have any personal knowledge, but down thread I got some pretty good suggestions for Ft Pierce.
    Its nearby so should be helpful.

      Barbecue: Dale's in Ft. Pierce on Okeechobee Rd. is one of the best BBQ ever . Sonny's is very good but Dale's baked beans are excellent.

      Tin Fish:, they receive daily shipments of fresh fish. HUGE fish tacos (just ONE is a meal!), GREAT fish and chips (breading is flavorful and not thick) and I liked their bang bang shrimp and their clams casino dip. I've heard from a fellow IGer their grilled fish tacos are also excellent. The crab cake was all breading and was the worst I've ever eaten.

      Duffy's: Firecracker Shrimp use large shrimp and are perfectly cooked. Fish taco: small but very good along with the price 3/$7 but dont order the lobster taco. Caribbean Jerk chicken: is excellent. Lobster bisque delicious. Guacamole: served in a very small bowl and way over priced for $10. Reuben is very good. Top Sirloin: tastless and over cooked.

          I pretty much agree from my experience. You have to stray further south into Jensen Beach & Stuart.
