When it comes to excellent dining options in Naples, the name USS Nemo gets dropped frequently. In this ship-themed restaurant with its bull’s eyes and atmospheric lighting guests feel like they are on a luxury cruise. The quality of the food matches the beautiful design: Fish and seafood of the highest quality, tender steaks and fresh ingredients are accompanied by a fascinating blend of Western, Mediterranean and Asian flavors. In addition, all the dishes are so aesthetically pleasing that you will almost feel bad for eating them.


The USS Nemo Restaurant is known for its fresh seafood and fish specialties – from classic Maine Lobster and scallops to salmon, snapper, swordfish and rare sorts like wild halibut. For the most part, the ingredients come straight from the nearby coast.

For a culinary trip to Southern Europe, try the wood-fire grilled sea bass with steamed artichokes, feta cheese, tomatoes and warm olive-pine nut vinaigrette. This fish is well known to connoisseurs for its tender meat and flavorful taste. If you like it spicy, the yellowtail snapper with Asian Aioli Cream is perfect for you. Or do you prefer the flavors of India? Then you should order the blackened tuna with tandoori spices and irresistible mango chutney. Of course, you can also have prime tuna fillet prepared just the way you like it. And do not forget the restaurant’s signature dish: grilled sea bass with citrus-ginger sauce. The New York Times even called this specialty “almost worth a trip to Naples in and of itself”.

Other popular items on the menu include:

  • grilled lobster with risotto, Asian salad and mushrooms
  • Hawaiian tuna fillet with wasabi and avocados
  • Wahoo steak with rice, vegetables, shiitake mushrooms and miso-soy sauce
  • Crispy grouper with pineapple salad, candied walnuts and mango sauce
  • Scottish salmon garnished with red wine-star anise sauce, spinach and vegetable risotto.

Before it is time for the main course, you can enjoy mouthwatering appetizers like steamed calamari, creamy lobster soup and tuna tartar with goat cheese.

Guests who prefer meat instead of fish have come to the right place. The restaurant’s prime Rib Eyes, Sirloins and New York Strips will satisfy even demanding steak lovers. For an extra-tender treat, try the slow-cooked beef brisket with balsamic teriyaki glaze. The crispy sweet and sour chicken is another popular choice.

Vegetarians should try the miso-glazed tofu and the fried cauliflower. In addition, you can choose from huge variety of salads: from classic Caesar Salad and Mediterranean tomato and feta salad to exotic creations garnished with seaweed, pears, truffles and red peppers.

Last but not least, no trip to the USS Nemo would be complete without dessert. Irresistible treats include crème brûlée, coconut pie, nut and pear pudding, fresh berries and Florida’s famous Key Lime Pie.

The USS Nemo is not only a popular place for dinner. The lunch menu draws in guests with crispy sandwiches, fish tacos, tuna pizza and hearty salmon burgers. Hungry vacationers should also try the Poke Bowls with fish salad served on rice – or, as the USS Nemo calls them: “deconstructed sushi rolls”.

The drink menu features a wide variety of beers, cocktails and fine wines. The restaurant’s unfiltered Sake, for example, goes perfectly with Asian dishes.

Sharky´s on the Pier, a true Venice original, was opened back in 1987. Since then, the restaurant with the shark emblem has been serving seafood, meat specialties, Caribbean dishes and mouthwatering desserts in a family-friendly atmosphere. No wonder that Sharky´s has earned numerous awards, among them the title “Florida’s best Beach Bar” in 2013.

With its location at the Venice Fishing Pier, Sharky´s offers spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, especially at sunset. A fine sandy beach stretches right below the restaurant. Here you can not only swim and enjoy the sun, but also collect shark teeth – probably the reason for the name Sharky´s. The restaurant features an interesting architectural mix between American diner, surf bar and Hawaiian Tiki Hut, and in the evening, you can eat here while listening to live music.

Of course, the question remains: Does the food at Sharky´s match the beautiful surroundings? And does the restaurant offer enough variety and special offers to keep guests coming back for more?


Not surprisingly for a waterfront restaurant, Sharky´s on the Pier serves fish and seafood in abundance – and takes guests on a culinary journey to the Caribbean: Crispy grouper sandwiches, golden cod filet with tartar sauce and Mahi Mahi Tacos with mango pineapple slaw are perfect examples of the “Floribbean” cuisine that is so popular in the Sunshine State.

In addition, Sharky´s amazes with its innovative recipes such as Maine Lobster with artichokes and parmesan sauce or grilled tuna with seaweed salad and wasabi. For a more classic choice, try the crispy fried shrimps or the New England Clam Chowder. Alternatively, ask your server which fish is in season, and have the catch prepared to your personal liking: fried, steamed or grilled with melted butter and herbs. Crispy French Fries, made from potatoes or sweet potatoes, are the perfect side.

Those who cannot wait for the main course should try the Octopus Appetizers and the homemade onion rings.

Of course, carnivores also get their fill at Sharky´s. The menu features Chicken Fingers and Hot Dogs as well as high-quality Filet Mignon Steak and chicken with Jamaican Jerk Sauce.

Not only vegetarians should check out the restaurant’s salads: The Beach Salad, for example, offers a sweet and savory mix of strawberries, oranges, candied nuts, gorgonzola and balsamic vinegar. You can also top it up with grilled fish or meat. If you love the taste of Southeast Asia, the Ko Thao Salad with mangoes and spicy peanut dressing is your perfect choice. Fans of the Mediterranean cuisine should try the Boathouse Salad with artichokes, olives and feta cheese. Guests on a diet will appreciate the fresh Caesar Salad that also comes with low-fat dressing.

But maybe you should plan for a cheat day when visiting Sharky´s: The dessert menu is ripe with sweet delicacies like Strawberry Cheesecake, Ice-cream Mud Pie with peanut butter and the Chocoloate Triple Layer Mousse. First-time visitors to South Florida should not miss the Key Lime Pie with refreshing lime juice – perfect on hot summer days.

For guests who prefer an ice-cold cocktail the restaurant offers a wide variety of frozen drinks, from Pina Colada, Bushwacker and Margaritas to inventions like the Mango Bango with coconut, mango and pineapple.

In addition to a kid’s menu, the restaurant also offers gluten-free dishes.


The restaurant is open every day from 11.30 am to 10 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays closing time is at midnight. For those who want to dine with a discount, Sharky´s offers a daily Happy Hour Menu from 3 to 5 pm (10 to 12 pm on Fridays and Saturdays).

At first, owner Jeff Gately was unsure about opening a restaurant directly by the water. Today, however, the Rumrunners ranks among the most popular dining options in Cape Coral.

In the evening, the restaurant’s patio lends itself to romantic dinners, and those who want to enjoy oysters and shrimps with a discount will love the happy hour between 3 and 6:30 pm.

Needless to say, the menu also features burritos. The popular Tex-Mex tortillas come filled with mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes and chillis.

Wheat tortillas form the basis for Fajitas bursting with chicken, green peppers, shrimps and steak slices. Speaking of steaks, the La Bamba boasts a great variety of them – from tender New York Steak and Top Sirloin to smoky Carne Asada and crispy fried Empanizado.

The Coconuts is one of Fort Lauderdale’s top spots to enjoy seafood, meat specialties and exquisite wines. Lush palm trees and the location near famous Las Olas Beach are almost reason enough to visit this restaurant in East Fort Lauderdale. Where else can guests dine with such an amazing view of the city’s waterways? But of course, looks are not everything. The Coconuts draws guests in with a wide variety of dishes, fresh ingredients, huge servings and quick, friendly service. Whether you want to go for breakfast, lunch or romantic sunset dinner – the Coconuts is your ideal place for waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale.


One glance at the menu is enough to know: Fish and seafood lovers will feel right at home in this restaurant. Coconut shrimps, linguini & clams topped with mint pesto, and lobster baguette New England style are only a few of the dishes. If you want to taste Spanish, French and African flavors all in one dish, the Jambalaya is your top pick – not just because of the epic serving size. Order the conch fritters to get a culinary glimpse of the Bahamas, and if spicy Mexican Food is your thing, you will love the fish tacos.
If you like it fresher than fresh, just ask for the catch of the day – either grilled or blackened with a mixture of butter and spices. Blackening will give the fish a delicious crust and smoky flavor. Those who prefer their fish raw should try the Sashimi Tuna with sweet soy sauce and ginger vinaigrette. But be careful: At the Coconuts Restaurant even appetizers like the perfectly baked Crab Cakes come in epic sizes, making it quite hard to leave space for the main course.
Despite all the culinary treasures from the ocean, the Coconuts is not only a fish and seafood restaurant. The menu boasts enough meaty dishes to make carnivores of all types happy. These dishes include:

  • Tim’s Backyard Burger with swiss or cheddar cheese
  • grilled chicken sandwich
  • babyback ribs with chipotle-pineapple barbecue sauce
  • pan seared chicken marinated with rosemary, garlic and lemon
  • New York Steak with homemade garlic butter
  • A highly recommended side dish is the coleslaw with sweet and spicy papaya dressing

The Coconuts´ brunch menu provides the perfect start to your day. If you like it sweet, you should try irresistible calorie bombs such as French toast, pancakes with fresh blueberries and Belgian Waffles with powdered sugar. But the menu includes savoury dishes as well, for example sandwiches and burgers topped with smoked salmon, lobster and salami, Italian omelets, crispy bacon or steak with fried egg. A hearty brunch like this will give you ample energy for your sightseeing trip in Fort Lauderdale.
Wine connoisseurs can choose from more than 70 sorts – among them dry red and white wines, sweet rosés and sparkling champagne. Or how about a refreshing cocktail à la Margarita, Daiquiri or Mojito? The drink menu offers the right type of beverage for every occasion.


The Coconuts is open Monday to Saturday from 11.30 am to 10 pm, and on Sundays from 10 am to 10 pm. Free parking is available.

Monday to Friday between 4 and 6 pm, the Coconuts´ Happy Hour offers appetizers for half the price, 1 USD off cocktails and beer, and a half dozen oysters for 8 USD. Fans of Spanish food should attend the Outdoor Paella every Tuesday and Friday night, while seafood lovers can try a wide variety of oysters at the yearly Oyster Fest.

You can also host your own event at the Coconuts – whether it is a cocktail party, corporate event or birthday. Up to 50 guests celebrate together in the Dock Bar and Oyster Bar directly on the waterfront.

The official website www.coconutsfortlauderdale.com sells merchandise like T-shirts and caps, as well as gift cards for your friends and loved ones. These are valid for all restaurants of the chain „be nice“ that the Coconuts is part of.
