Coconuts: the best of the American cuisine in Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is blessed with nice beaches and a warm weather. There are some people that say life is better in the sea, and perhaps in addition we could say that not only in the sea but also next to the sea. Many activities seem more relaxing if they are made near to the beach such as taking a sunbath, riding a bike, shopping, a walk, a nap, and many others. Perhaps it is the tropical vibe that makes us feel relaxed.
A meal could also being better if near to the beach, to enjoy the view and sound of the sea. In this sense, among all the culinary offerings we can find in Fort Lauderdale, a remarkable spot is the restaurant “Coconuts”. Its address is in 429 Seabreeze Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, and it’s located in classic establishment next to the sea, neat and roomy enough to feel comfortable when having a good meal, whether seafood or other kind, mainly for dining time.
The place where the restaurant receives its customers is an old fashioned construction; around sixty years ago there were two hotels that started the tradition for spring break, thanks to this Fort Lauderdale became a pilgrimage place where thousands of college students arrived to release their stress, get relax and have some fun.
Nowadays, this place is home for Coconuts, and keeping the tradition through the best food along the “nicest” attitude from all the staff toward the clients, allow to provide a high quality service for everyone that look forward to meet a new and sophisticated restaurant.
The food includes seafood and many dishes they master. As appetizers, we could mention Grilled jerk wings, Conch fritters, Smoked fish dip, Coconut shrimp. If you look for salads, you can order the Caesar salad, a Steak salad, the Sesame seared tuna, the Crab cake salad, the Coconuts house salad.

As the main dish, the Local fish of the day, Comfort bowl, Coconut shrimp platter, Jambalaya, Yard bird. Additional fast options are the Local mahi sandwich, Tim’s backyard burger, Fish tacos, or the Chicken sandwich. Of course, these are not all the choices you will find in the complete chart, just some examples so you can have an idea of the food variety.

A special place like Coconuts, and many other ones in Fort Lauderdale or Miami itself is easier to know and visit in a particular vehicle. If you came to Florida, a Fort Lauderdale airport limo service would provide you the high class service you look for in order to move in the city from your hotel to any destiny you need to meet (The pictures of this article were taken from the Facebook Fan Page of this restaurant).
