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.  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.

All of our reviews are on the individual town pages.  Here is a list of towns with restaurant reviews.
