  1. Shells on West New Haven by Melbourne Square. Been around for a long time. Locals love it.

    Also try the Shack down A1A (Dixie Hwy) in Palm Bay. On the beach. Great service. easy parking. Good crabs and shrimp.

    Islands Fish Grill on 5th Ave Indialantic, just before A1A. Can get crowded. Small place.

    For more "party" atmosphere try Bonefish Willy's on the beach up on Pineapple Ave.

    You can head up the coast to Cocoa Beach for Bernard's on S Atlantic.

    All these places are relativley casual. The Dove on New Haven is Italian but they serve good seafood. One of the more expensive places to dine. And for most expensive, but not necessarily the best-though good for the money, there's always the Chart House over on Front street past the park before the causeway.

      Thanks. Have been to the Shack, and really liked it. Your recommendations sound solid.

        1. re: cavandre

          Well I had heard that but also heard that a UK group who own the Giraffe restaurants was buying it and were reopening. Guess Not. Scratch another from the CB list. Thanks for the heads up.

          Fat Snook was good too but been a couple of years since I was there.

            I heard the same thing, but the project has at least stalled if not died.

      1. If you want some really well prepared sea food, I suggest you try the Fat Snook over in Cocoa Beach. The place isn't very big, but they take reservations.

        1. Also in Cocoa Beach, there's Jazzy's Mainely Lobster. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a wicked good New England sea food joint on the inside.
