The reviews on this website are places that I have actually tried and liked.  Many of them have been published before in our free ezine, Florida Heritage Travel.

Having lived in the Sunshine State for many years, one of my favorite pastimes is traveling around the state.  This naturally includes trying a variety of great food.

I enjoy finding a local favorite, a hidden gem, in addition to visiting some of the better known restaurants.

No mater which part of Florida you are in, you are bound to find some classics such as fresh seafood and Key Lime Pie.

I don't publish bad reviews on this website or in the ezine.  You will see reviews only for restaurants I've tried and liked.
