John, there are only a couple of restaurants on the water at the marina: Virginia's, Trout Street and I think Dock's or Dockside. The first two are pricey but pretty good. Service at Virginia's is hit or miss. Be prepared for a looong wait if you go on the weekends.
Tortuga Flats is gone! The building was moved and it turned into a BBQ joint. Virginia's is at the same spot now. Good bar, good Bloody's and Marg's. ( I was so angry when they closed Tortuga. It was my fathers fav. spot after a morning fishing trip)
I was very upset to find out that the Quarter Deck was gone, too! Used to go in and order onion strings after a long day on the water. Nothing beat those onion strings and a burger. Dang I miss that place. Ate at that place every time I was there, which was about 2 times a month for about 10 years.
OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH man that heapin pile of fried onions darn it you got my mouth watering. I was very sad to see my to favs. go bye bye and these other resturants move in. Also their food is not as good.............................later,Dave
fishing from their dock surrounding that building in the back and on the side and the marina area there is (don't tell anybody because it's my secret spot) the best pace I've found during the Fall for flounder in all of Port A.
Flatties swim the shoreline heading out to the Gulf from CC Bay. Many follow that path hoping it'll take them to the end of the jetties only to make the one fatal mistake....they reach the mouth of the entrance to the harbor/marina and hook a right turn only to find themselves in the marina and lost That is, of course, is when I come along with founder belly and jigs, etc. and "show them the light." Can I hear an AMEN!? CF? :doowapsta
