Hidden Treasure Rum Bar & Grill is on a bayou right off Ponce Inlet and in the shadow of the nearby Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. In earlier days it was a fish camp.
It is a rustic setting that will make you feel right at home in Old Florida.
This is a great place to sit outside; if you don't feel like eating, they also have a nice tiki bar with a full service drink menu.
You can also eat at the tiki bar if you feel like it.
Hidden Treasure has quite an extensive menu and offers a lot of appetizers and entrees. Needless to say, seafood is the specialty.
An attention grabbing appetizer is their Florida Kracker Sampler. It includes fried gator, fish dip, steamed Key West shrimp and house chips.
It's big enough to share with the whole table.
Land based appetizers are led by Fried Dill Pickle Chips and my favorite, Sweet Corn Pops.
The pops are like a hush puppy, fried golden brown in a light batter. They also have tasty chicken wings.
Their fresh seafood meals include fried baskets or larger entrees.
Some of the seafood offerings include Alaskan snow crab, live Maine lobster, Key West Pink shrimp dinner, crab stuffed flounder, sea scallop dinner.
Handheld selections include burgers, chicken sandwiches, fish Reuben, and cod, chicken or ribeye tacos.
They also have oysters, mussels, clams and crab for the shell fish lover.
Landlubbers will enjoy pasta scampi with various toppings, garlic chicken, BBQ pork chop or a steak dinner featuring sirloin, ribeye and prime rib. There are numerous pies and cake selections for the dessert lover.
