Port Canaveral dinner establishments?


Recommended Posts

fishlips and grills (and Rustys and Millikans) are far from the best food around here


but they are good, and have the great port view that cruisers are typically looking for, and not too $$, kid friendly, close to the popular pre-cruise hotels


are you looking for something more upscale food wise?

How far are you willing to drive?


About 30 minutes away (take 528 aka the beach line to US1 then head North) there is a town called Mims that has Louis' BBQ Shack. Fantastic local spot for BBQ. Just South of there on US1 in Tituville is El Leoncito which is a local Mexican place that has great drink specials and good food. Also right on US1 in Titusville is Paul's Steak House which is more upscale. I would NOT suggest going to Steve's Diner which is in that area unless you enjoy mediocre microwaved food.


About 15 minutes away (take A1A south to 520 then East) is Merritt Island they have all your typical chain places (steak and shake, applebee's, Outback, Longhorn, etc) as well as Cocoa Beach right on A1A south of the port has multiple places (if you go far enough south I'd hit Slow and Low BBQ) that are really good. Tokyo Japanese Steak House is right on A1A it's a Habatchi place that is pretty good.

there is a Bonefish Grill @ Merritt Island mall ... upscale chain


Down Melbourne way at A1A and US 192, Chart House .. ditto upscale chain

{+ lot's of nice places in the Eau Gallie historic district}
