Intrastate Florida Driving Trip

winegal5246 May 1, 2013 02:23 PM

Starting an intrastate Florida trip next week. Working our way down from Panhandle. First night in Altamonte Springs with reservations at Seasons 52. Looking for non-chain restaurants in Viera/Melbourne, Port St. Lucie, Cape Coral/Fort Meyers, Wesley Chapel. A good wine list would make us happy. Any suggestions?

    This is strictly the SOUTHEAST Florida board. You should repost on the other Florida board:


    Also you might do better with a more specific post title, for example:

    Local treasures (w wine) in Viera/Melbourne, PSL, Cape Coral/Ft Meyers, Wesley Chapel

    That's more likely to arouse interest from local experts, rather than "Intrastate Driving trip". Good luck!

      River Rocks gives you two options. The outdoor deck sits over the Indian River and offers a good casual menu (and my favorite fried shrimp in the area). The inside dining is more adventuresome.

        Great place on the Indian River just south of Melbourne.
