The Port Canaveral restaurants are always a hit for tourists waiting to board their cruise ships. They’ll fly in a day early, stay at one of the nearby hotels minutes away and enjoy their first night of vacation singing, dancing and enjoying everything that Brevard County has to offer.
There is always something going on at The Port – even for the locals. Weekends often consist of live bands, dj’s and sporting events being played on the big screen. The outdoor tiki bar is nearly always packed, that’s because everyone is craving something frozen or cold! The same goes with their outdoor seating area. These spots are prime reality during the lunch and dinner hours, so get there a little early – then you’ll be set for the night if you decide to stay later!
While I do have to say, I’m a fan of certain menu items at all of the Port Canaveral restaurants, Grills does mean a little something extra to me. This was the spot I went to on my first night as an official Brevard resident! Even after almost two years, it still feels like the first time – a cold strawberry margarita, overlooking the docked boats. Does it really get any better than that?
Actually, yes, because of the food! Grills Seafood Deck and Tiki Bar has a great menu. Like their name implies, they do offer quiet a bit of seafood. If that’s what you’re hungry for, then be sure to ask the waitstaff about the catch of the day! Otherwise, don’t worry, they have plenty more. Even their appetizers delicious and unique – can you say Shrimp Jammers (recommended by me). I’d love to explore more of their menus, but I’ve found a love for two things: their Boneless Wings and the Phillie Cheesesteak. I know it’s a bit out of the ordinary coming from a seafood restaurant, but they’re too good to pass up. Sometimes you just have to stick to what you love!
