The Island Pub

Well geeze.  Here I am, a food blogger....a deadbeat one, but still.....and I haven't mentioned Gary, John, Jeff, and the Island Pub!  For shame!  This place is a gem...tucked away in a little enclave as part of an intimate resort, the Pub provides great food and an equally great atmosphere.

My NJ girlfriends and I were treated to personalized places at the bar....Gary and John make sure that everyone entering feels special.  The food is yummy....the staff is warm and enjoyable...the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing.  It's south of Pine Ridge; off of Neopolitan Way.  If I tell you anymore, I'll have to kill you.  Just stop by....say "Hi" to Gary and John.  They'll be glad to see you.

Mira Mare

For an unforgettable dinner...attentive service...and lovely atmosphere, you can't go wrong with Mira Mare on Venetian Bay....Naples, FL

Last night's monsoon...tornado watch...heavy downpours...gusty winds....could not keep this diner away.  The company was delightful, and the dinner was delicious.  Background piano music adds to the relaxing atmosphere.

Thank you for the umbrella that shielded me from the evil rains as I ventured to my car.

Gavin....can I tell you how much I LOVE that "Signature Burger?"  Wars have been fought...peace treaties signed for such perfection.  You know, I typically consume bacon maybe once...twice a year.  However, with the discovery of this burger, I've now broken that rule and have enjoyed the "garnish" twice in the past two weeks.  For shame.  Why, oh why did you place this evil item on your menu?  Do you not understand the meaning of "schoolgirl figure?"  Suzanne and I are going to need Burger's Anonymous.

But wait.  The coleslaw?  Don't get me started.  Raisins....creamy...Oh. My. God.

The food:  Nothing short of comfortable deliciousness
The staff:   Can you say, "Family?"
The rating:  Seriously.  Perfect.
And now that Robert has his "corner," all is well with the world
