FLORIDA RESTAURANTS     

Some sources say there are more than 41,000 restaurants in Florida.  Most of these restaurants have reviews on TripAdvisor, Urban Spoon, Yelp, Google and other websites.

When I am going into a town that is new to me, I usually look at TripAdvisor and find a place with a lot of positive reviews.  I have done hundreds of reviews myself on TripAdvisor over the years.

I like TripAdvisor but keep this in mind:  restaurants with only a few TripAdvisor reviews can be biased too far on the positive or negative side, so I am cautious about putting much stock in those reviews (other than my own, of course).

The reviews on Florida Backroads Travel are places that I have actually tried and liked.  They have been published before in our free monthly ezine, Florida Heritage Travel.  I don't publish bad reviews on this website or in the ezine.

If I don't like a place, I don't write about it.

I hope you will enjoy these Florida restaurants.  Some are down home simple, some upscale fancy, and all good in my opinion.

All of the restaurants on this list have a TripAdvisor rating of at least 4 stars with one exception:  Captain Hiram's in Sebastian has a score of 3.5, but I leave it on the list anyway because I like the tiki bars.

My friends Zach & Jenn own a small organic farm named Zenn Naturals.  It is located near Eustis, Florida and was mostly destroyed by Hurricane Irma

They have brought a lot of health and happiness to their customers during their farming venture and I’d like to help them rebuild and get back into business.
