Indialantic, Fla., is easy to overlook, in the shadow of nearby Melbourne Beach and the Space Coast's more popular destinations, such as Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. But for such a small town (with a population under 3,000), Indialantic packs a big punch when it comes to flavor.
Travelers may be surprised to see the wide selection of excellent restaurants in this small town.
As might be expected on the East Coast, fish and seafood are easy stars of the dining scene in Indialantic. Even Italian restaurants, like Petriollo's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria and Villa Palma Ristorante, incorporate seafood into their dishes. Although if good pizza is what the belly craves, Indialantic has that covered, too. Petriollo's and the popular Original Bizzarro Famous NY Pizza, both do pizza well.
For something quick and casual, Long Doggers is a surfer hotspot. For something a little more substantial and sophisticated, Scotts on Fifth has a reputation for excellence. Islands Fish Grill serves well-prepared, locally caught fish.
Many of Indialantic's best restaurants are located near the boardwalk or walking distance to the beach. So after you fill up on local fare (and don't forget to leave space for key lime pie), you can walk along the water and enjoy the warm Florida weather.
