It’s hard to beat the spectacular water and sunset views diners find at Eaton’s Beach Sandbar & Steam Shack. Chef Dave Del Rio knows a thing or two about food. His signature Florisiana food (a little Cajun, creole, low country, BBQ and Spanish) is comfort food at its best.
If you’re a first-timer to the restaurant, the chef recommends the Shrimp & Grits or the hand-carved, smoked pastrami. His personal favorite? The Ybor City Gumbo.
The newly opened Steam Shack, whose menu revolves around freshly steamed seafood, is “beach” casual, and diners wearing anything from swimsuits to business suits are welcome. While you’re there, check out the tiki bar, pontoon rentals, jet skis and even guided lake tours. Stay for the evening’s entertainment offering. Make a day of it.
If Dave was stranded on a deserted island, he would only need his wife and two dogs, a BBQ grill and a fishing pole.
