Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill

610 Glen Creek Drive, Port Canaveral, FL 32920

This restaurant is one of my favorites on the east coast! The atmosphere is that of a tiki-like bar while also offering casual dining. The location is right on Port Canaveral, so you and your family can relax with a Pina Colada (or two) and watch the cruise ships leave and enter the port! Try to get here at sunset with outdoor seating, you cannot beat this view! The food is great too, with the ocean being right there, there’s no denying the freshness of this seafood! Be sure to try the Sesame Tuna and the Lobster Bisque, they are to die for!!!
