Winter holiday gave us possibility to see wonderful Florida! And of course to eat in it´s great restaurants. Jack Baker´s Lobster Shanty situated at Cocoa Beach, was one of the best restaurants we visited. Thanks for our dear friends who invited us for a dinner to this restaurant. Lobster Shanty is the restaurant for seafood lovers in a beautiful place next to the river. We got the table inside of the restaurant, but there is also great patio outside where you can see (if you are lucky) dolphins swimming in the river. The nice detail is the pool with the swimming fishes in the entrance of the restaurant.
Restaurant was crowded when we went there at 6:30 pm. Atmosphere at the restaurant was very good. It was so nice to see happy people enjoying Friday night and good food. Our waitress was nice and she took very good care of us. She seemed to enjoy her job and she was willing to tell us about the dishes and recommendations of the day. We heard in advance that we would not leave hungry because size of dishes, but still it was a surprise to see the amount of food that was brought to our table. In addition to coleslaw and white bread as a starter, we got recommended deep-fried appetizer which had powdered sugar on top of it.
As a main courses we selected ‘Roasted Herb Infused Salmon’ (22$) and ‘Grouper’ (24$). Entrees were served with side dishes and we both selected House salad as a side dish.
Salmon was delicious with a light taste of garlic and rosemary. Asparagus with the salmon reminded me of the summer in Finland that we still need to wait for a couple of months. In Cocoa beach the feeling of summer is there all year around.
Grouper was white fish served with fruit salsa. Mixed warm vegetables on the side brought up the taste of the fish.
As a dessert there were different options of ice-cream and sorbet. Ooh, Perfect end to this night in Cocoa Beach.
