Bimini Twist, one of South Florida’s most delicious traditions, was established in 2002.Known for it's Seafood, Steak and Chops.<br />Winner of the "10 Best" and "Best of the West" awards. Free parking. Still serving large portions at fair prices!<br /><br><br><br />Specializing in the freshest Seafood from around the globe, along with Certified Black Angust meats and Chops and even Pasta - there is something to please every pallet. Step beyond the tiki torches and palm trees and come inside for an experience you won’t soon forget.

"we are in the habit of having dinner at Tesori before a concert. It has always been good. A few weeks ago, it was not but we returned the other night and it had returned to form. The drinks were well made and arrived prompt as did our dinner which was appropriately timed and well done. I don't know what was going on the last time but I am glad I went back"

"We regularly have dinner at Tesori before a CSO performance and usually enjoy it. This experience was not enjoyable...everything was slow. The cocktail took forever and came wrong. It took way too long to correct. Salads were prompt and very good. Entrees were beyond slow and the waiter was no where to be found. I will return because it was good in the past. This time it was not."

The first Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, Grunts still exudes the funky, devil-may-care lifestyle of the 70s in its style, décor, music, and menu. Happily for all of us, the best eating of that day continues to be some of the best today. <br /><br />While there"s a huge menu that's as much fun to eat your way through as it is to read, many of Grunts' old favorites spark return visits. The burgers are arguably the best in town. The salad bar boasts more than 50 ingredients daily. Giant malts and milkshakes are hand scooped and come in a rainbow of favors. Oh! Don't forget the barbecued baby back ribs and pulled pork sandwiches!
