You should never go hungry in Cape Canaveral.
This city, on the Space Coast in Florida, is a mere five minutes from Port Canaveral and some of the state's best fishing. It's no surprise that Cape Canaveral is home to a great selection of seafood restaurants, as well as tables with a water view.
In fact, four of the region's best seafood destinations are located within a short drive of each other: Seafood Atlantic, Rusty's Seafood and Oyster Bar, Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill and Grills Seafood Deck & Tiki Bar.
If crab legs and oysters don't hit the spot, hungry visitors can also enjoy authentic food from around the world, at Euro Kafe Etcetera (German, Polish, Croatian and more) and Vargas Cafe (Cuban and Mexican food).
Popular surf shop Ron Jon also has its flagship restaurant in Cape Canaveral, with an inexpensive restaurant that boasts a diverse menu. And if affordable is important, Crackers Island Grill is growing on us. This newer, casual restaurant is a favorite among surfers and beach-goers. Find Coney dogs, hamburgers, fish tacos and towering platers of fresh-cut fries and nachos here. Oh, and beer to wash it down.
