Bar

“Chill, beachy hangout on the Intracoastal dishing seafood & Sunday brunch while yachts cruise by. I've enjoyed this place many Sunday's for brunch. They are always busy and do have a wait but they have do have a guy making fresh donuts for free while you wait. Not sure what that is all about but they are really good. They also have good bloody Marys and a oyster bar. It's a nice outside atmosphere. I do have to say that I had a group of 6 guest and each pick one of my recommendations. This was the only one they weren't overwhelmed by but it could have just been a bad day. They do have good ratings online. ”

Cafe
$$
“Casablanca Café, was built in 1927 for the Jova family. It was the first home constructed on Fort Lauderdale Beach and is the oldest remaining structure. South Florida doesn't have a lot of history so the very charm of this place makes it one of my favorites and someplace very special to me. It the first place I ate at when I was brought here for a job interview in 1997 and having lunch on the Ocean was love at first sight and I never went back. Even if you have to wait a bit, you're on the beach so you have some time to get those selfies before you dine. Even if your sitting inside, take a walk around the inside bar area and upstairs. Oh, the food is good and not expensive. I like the grille shrimp caesar salad.”

The park offers scenic nature trails and waterways. A great place to look for wildlife. Paddle boards, bicycles, kayaks and jet skis can be rented here. There is a nice, casual, beach front restaurant that serves craft beers and has live music on the weekends. The restaurant is called Park and Ocean.”
