Tony's has served up some of the best old NY Italian favorites. Our cooking comes from Southern Neapolitan traditions and served up in huge family style platters that serve 2 to 3 people.

"We love going to Tony's before a show because the food is consistently good and the atmosphere is fun and lively. The family style portions are huge so it's best to have a group but we go with just two people knowing that we will have dinner for the next night!"

"From the moment we walked into Blue Morel we had wonderful evening. The staff was excellent and the right amount of attentive. Our server gave great suggestions on food and wine pairing and was delightful. Everything we ordered was delicious starting with the crab cake appetizer and ending with dessert. We will be adding this restaurant to our regular rotation."

Oystercatchers is located on the shores of the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay. You drive down a winding road into the Ruelle as you approach the illuminated circle drive flanked by palm trees and bright flowerbeds. As you enter the restaurant through the lounge, you are taken back by the spectacular panoramic view of Old Tampa Bay. With its innovative cocktails and contemporary furniture, the lounge, outside patio and lower bay-level deck provide a comfortable yet chic hotspot for locals and visitors alike. Our visually stimulating water views and sunsets provide a unique environment to enjoy feature wines and appetizers. Our menu highlights an array of the freshest, wild and line caught fish available, organic produce and seafood specialties with a unique and contemporary flair. Oystercatchers... Even our sunsets are made fresh daily.

"We were in Tampa for the weekend and tried Oystercatchers for the first time and it was a very positive experience. The view is gorgeous and the food is great. The service was particularly good. We will definitely go back the next time we are in town."

Grand Views... Rave Reviews. At the Thistle Lodge Beachfront Restaurant, delicious cuisine is served in a historical heirloom setting overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Swaying palms and gently breaking waves further set the scene for romance.

"Our second visit in our week on Sanibel and it was equally delightful. The view of the gulf was fabulous and the service was excellent. We had a leisurely lunch and never felt rushed. The grouper sandwich has a delicious sauce on the side and shrimp and blue crab wrap was delicious. Dessert at the Thistle Lodge cannot be better. We tried a luscious chocolate coconut dessert and left very happy."

"We had a wonderful experience at the Thistle Lodge starting with the lovely atmosphere and ending with the delicious salted caramel cheesecake. Our server was attentive and her recommendations were very helpful. We had the crab cake appetizer which was prepared to perfection and the drum fish special which was also perfect. Our only disappointment was that after many years on Sanibel this was our first time there and we have missed this wonderful restaurant in the past. We will definitely go back this week."

"We were looking for a fun weeknight dinner and found End of Elm. The menu for small plates to share was tempting but we both wanted a burger and the burger was excellent. We tried the avocado salad as a starter and if it is any indication of the other small plates then the small plates are excellent. We will go back soon to try them. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is cozy."

"We dined on a Sunday evening for our anniversary in the middle of an ice storm so the restaurant was more quiet than normal but there was a large group there having a wonderful time together and they were obviously regulars in the restaurant. The service was awesome and the food was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return very soon."
