Default Good resteraunts in Port Canaveral?????

Hey everybody. I have a quick question we are staying at the Raddison the night before our cruise and I was just wondering if there was any really good resteraunts around there worth trying for dinner. Its my first time over there so I was just wondering.

Thanks,
Keri

I would let you know but we are on the same cruise...I think it would be too late by then.

The restaurant at the Radisson is very good.

There is an Outback Steakhouse in Cocoa Beach not too far.

The Cape Canaveral / Cocoa Beach area is not a big city so there are not any high end restaurants.

Depends on what you are looking for. Captain J's (I believe that is the name) has a really good blackened grouper sandwich. It's just behind Ron Jon's Surf Shop and has a balcony overlooking the beach. There is also another place next door to Florida Seafood, on the waterway, Sunset something (sorry, I'm bad with names). If you go more into Cocoa, you will find a lot more of the bigger name restaurants.

I live in Orlando so I head out to Port Canaveral alot for the casino cruises and also just to spend the weekend in Cocoa. Right in Port Canaveral there is an area called The Cove. Its a "entertainment" area with some restaraunts and bars right on the docks. Fishlips, Rusty's, Grills, etc. Most have outdoor seating right on the wharf so if you are lucky you'll catch a cruise ship heading out around 4pm or 5pm. Grills is by far my favorite. Good seafood, served on paper plates on picnic tables. They have a big outdoor bar too. And the prices are right!

Hope that helps.

I agree with jaymah. Go to the port area. We've been to Grills a couple of times but we had real plates, lol and you can go to their website and print a 10% off coupon if from out of state. They have a live band and we also watched a few ships leave while we were there. Enjoy!

I live in Orlando and my parents have a condo in Cape Canaveral . We go there often and really enjoy Grills and Fishlips . They both have good food and nice outside seating. It's right near the port.

I live in Orlando and always have to make my way beachside that is ( Cocoa Beach) Captain J's is cool if you sit out side its usually got music and good drinks =) Like they said above theres not many really nice restraunts its more of a beach atomshpere little grills beach bars and strip clubs. But if you do drive out towards Cocoa...you will find more restraunts theres a Steak house in front of Best Western I forget what its called but its good it would be on your left (beachside) good food.
