100 miles round-trip for dinner?

Would you drive 50 miles one-way up the coast of Florida for a seafood dinner? What if that seafood restaurant was located at the end of an old strip mall with zero view of the ocean? Would it be worth it? Well, it was to us and we did it last night driving from Ft. Lauderdale up the coast to Juno Beach to eat at Captain Charlie's Reef Grill...and it was worth every mile, minute and dollar. Best seafood in the world - bar none. Rob had the peppered wahoo and Ashlee had the sesame tuna. This is our third time eating at the Reef Grill - we ate there two nights in a row on a trip to W. Palm Beach a few years ago. It was much easier to find this time with the aid of Ashlee's GPS device. The first time we tried to find it without such a device was quite an adventure since as was stated above The Reef Grill is a local secret located on the end of a dated strip mall and kind of hard to find. You will know when you find it, however, because the parking lot will be packed. If you are ever in the W. Palm - Ft. Lauderdale area and want some real seafood at it's best, then seek out The Reef Grill. Amazing menu, great wine list, wide selection of bottled beer and on tap. Can you imagine how many seafood restaurants we passed in 50 miles of Florida coastline? Off to Key West today. Take care, all.
