Eating Out In Punta Gorda

Eating out in Punta Gorda is an experience not to be missed. Many restaurants are on the seafront offering magnificent views of the inter-coastal waters. Fishermens Village is well worth a visit.  With over 30 shopsrestaurants and services, a resort and marina, a military museum, plus frequent special events, it’s a perfect place to come for a day of shopping. It is a pier or esplanade and as well as containing ‘The Captain’s Table’ Restaurant and ‘Village Fish Market and Restaurant’ it also has a great many interesting shops. Check out ‘Salty Paws’ and ‘Laff Out Loud’.

Just up the Tamiami Trail from our house is ‘Phil’s 41’. All the locals use it because of its friendly atmosphere and its high standard of cuisine at a reasonable price.

In downtown Punta Gorda two restaurants stand out.  ‘River City Grill’ and ‘The Perfect Caper’. The former is definitely American and the latter is essentially French. Apart from one MacDonalds restaurant which has crept into Punta Gorda most restaurants are owner run.

The adjacent Port Charlotte does have a few chain restaurants but on the whole there are a very large number of unique eateries providing an enormous choice. We have our personal favorites which are listed below but don’t be misled into believing that these are the only restaurants worth visiting.
