“I don’t like throwing shade on any local place, but because it is walking distance and I am a food blogger, I have to be very honest. Lattitude 35 is not the best place to eat. The food is o.k.... however, if you do decide to order, the grouper fingers are good, the burger is decent, the seared ahi tuna is generally delicious, and the quesadillas are good. With that said, it is a great little joint to hang out and have a drink. They have a full bar menu. They usually have live music at night and a great outdoor patio. The atmosphere is fun and it is a hang-out for the neighborhood locals. ”
