The Twisted Tuna is on the shoreline of Port Salerno, a historic Florida fishing village within Stuart, Florida.

It offers a beautiful view of the water that surrounds it on two sides, and is well known for its delicious seafood offerings. You can visit the restaurant by land or on a boat.

The interior is bright and open, and you have your choice of dining inside or outside on one of the decks. The menu features something for everyone, but seafood is the specialty of the house.

The atmosphere is friendly and inviting, and the service is great. The restaurant and bar quite often feature local musicians.

Some of their menu items include tuna based appetizers along with my favorite, Conch Ceviche. You can also get cracked conch and conch fritters, Oysters Rockefeller and Twisted Calamari.

They have a raw bar, too, and a wide selection of soups and salads and even feature sushi. Entrees include several kinds of steamed seafood platters and a large variety of fried baskets.

Other entrees feature various fish, shrimp or chicken tacos and a huge variety of sandwiches and wraps.

Fish dinners feature grouper, mahi-mahi, snapper, salmon and they will even cook your own catch for you.

Landlubbers are not forgotten with an 8 ounce filet mignon, various chicken dishes, and a surf and turf feature with lobster tail.

To cap it all off, Italian fans will love their large selection of pasta dishes and their brick oven pizza. They also have a gluten free menu.

The Twisted Tuna Cafe is open at 1100 am seven days a week, and closes at midnight except for Fridays and Saturdays when it stays open until 100 am. On Sunday they take it easy and close at 1100 pm.
