Restaurants in Boca Grande
No surprise, fish and seafood—stone-claw crab, shrimp and, of course, tarpon—are the main culinary drivers in the restaurants of Boca Grande. Seafood is not your only option, of course: the mainland clientele has long supported global cuisines such as Thai and Mexican. Wind, and eat, your way through some of the best restaurants in Boca Grande.
Temptation Restaurant is a funky little café that features murals of leaping tarpon and a neon martini sign—and serves local grouper, pompano, and soft-shell crabs. The Eagle Grill does steaks and seafood in an idyllic setting for a Boca Grande restaurant: You can sit downstairs and look out at the marina, or dine upstairs, overlooking the boats. Patrick's Thai Bistro is a local favorite that offers authentic Thai dishes made from natural ingredients. Shrimp and grits, steak and crispy duck, are some of the sinner entrees at the longtime favorite Boca Grande restaurant, the Loose Caboose. It was even frequented by Katharine Hepburn in an earlier era. They’re known for their homemade ice creams and Key Lime pie, and this is also a great place to try a Southern classic, fried green tomatoes.
