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.
The Red Bar in Grayton Beach
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 Blackwater Inn in Astor
The reviews on Florida Backroads Travel are places that I have actually tried and liked. Many of them 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.
OUR REVIEWS ARE ON THE INDIVIDUAL TOWN PAGES.
