Where to Eat
Dunedin’s restaurant choices run the gamut from down-home to refined. The Black Pearl of Dunedin is most definitely refined - it’s renowned for fine French food in a romantic setting - perfect for a birthday or celebratory dinner. Voted “Tampa Bay’s Best Waterfront Restaurant,” Bon Appetit’s menu leans towards seafood, though meat lovers will find excellent options, too. Their waterfront bar offers views of St. Joseph Sound, making it a favorite place for locals to relax. The Restorative in Dunedin has garnered prestigious awards for its innovative, changing menus.
Dining with friends (perhaps friends who travel with Fido)? Check out the casual-yet-delightful Living Room on Main for small plates meant to be shared - and even a special dog menu. Looking for amazing, authentic Mexican food? Family-owned Casa Tina is the place to be. Hungry for finger-licking barbeque? Check out Eli’s Bar B Que (Fridays and Saturdays only, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.). In the mood for Cajun specialties? Eat outside under the towering oaks at Happy’s Bayou Bites. For delicious nachos, burritos, tacos and baja bowls with a side of fun - make a bee-line for Pearly’s Beach Eats.
If by some possibility you still have room after dinner (isn't there always room for ice cream?), head straight over to the uber-popular Strachan’s Homemade Ice Cream for decadent flavors such as JaMocha Almond Chip and Cherry Wow-za.
