One of my favorite things about coming down here is that there seems to be an awesome little seafood restaurant every three blocks. Last time I was down here, we ate at an amazing place that's little more than a shanty on a dock out on Anna Maria Island called The Rod and Reel. Great grouper caught just an hour or two before - I highly recommend it.
Yesterday for lunch we headed out some place similar (and again for dinner, stay tuned) called The Old Salty Dog, which I think has a couple of locations in the area.
It's very basic seafood fare, which means it has to be good or no one will go, right?
I had a shrimp and oyster po' boy. I was actually in the mood for something lighter (there has been a little too much food and drink over the last few days), but it just sounded too good to pass up. It didn't disappoint, either.
My father had a blackened Cajun grouper sandwich. Every one of those words is a Good Thing.
Throw in a Stella in a plastic cup and we're good to go.
