American Restaurant

Latin American Restaurant
“This is the place for your special occasion, just be sure to make reservations well in advance. Rudy & Paco is the only restaurant in town that has a dress code, so don't be bop in there in shorts and a tank top. It's also located right next door to The 1894 Grand Theater, so it's great for a romantic date night out. I've only been here twice - I'm just not much of a "fine dining" kind of gal. But I really enjoyed the Filete de Pargo Parrilla (grilled gulf‏ red snapper topped with cilantro cream sauce). ”

Café
“Located near UTMB, this is a locals' favorite for brunch, where you can get carafes of mimosas with orange, grapefruit, pineapple or cranberry juice. Make this your breakfast or lunch spot, because they close at 3 PM. My favorites for lunch are the Mile High Meatloaf or the Goat Cheese and Candied Pecan Salad. ”

Ice Cream Shop
“Locally made and loved by locals, Hey Mikey's is the best place for ice cream...not just on the island, but ANYWHERE! There's a reason the line is out the door sometimes, but it's always worth the wait. New flavors are always popping up, with interesting combinations and flavors sure to please. Some example are Nutter Butter, Irish Car Bomb, and Grandma's Nuts, but there are 20 flavors to choose from on any given day. Need a few more carbs? Stick a scoop in a freshly baked donut! Yep, they do that too. Or warm up one of their home made brownies (seriously - BEST brownie you'll ever have) and have a scoop or three on top. ”
