Restaurants Cape Coral
Cape Coral has some of the best, most flavorful dishes and restaurants around. We have a wide variety of cuisines to choose from and options that suit all palates and dietary restrictions. From waterfront dining to downtown spots Cape Coral and the surrounding cities have a plethora of options for your next meal. Below you will find both local eateries and chain restaurants. We recommend calling ahead for wait times, specials, and the most up to date information.

Seafood Restaurants Cape Coral

Most of the restaurants in SW Florida have seafood options as we are right on the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to the restaurants, there are many fishmongers and markets where you can find local, fresh seafood options. Florida is known to have many crab and fish sacks. In SW Florida, we are known for our grouper (try a fried grouper sandwich!).

Bakeries Cape Coral

Florida is frequently referred to as the “melting pot” of cultures and ethnicities. In the Cape Coral area that is shown in not only our restaurants, but in our bakeries, too! There is no shortage of breads, pastries, and desserts to accompany your meals. We recommend the chocolate eclair at Amore, you won’t regret it!

Steakhouses Cape Coral

Steakhouse Cape Coral

So, you’re craving a steak? Fortunately for you we have local options to try, or if you would rather stick to a chain steakhouse you are familiar with, we have that, too. Our personal favorite at Vesteva is Bubba’s Roadhouse & Saloon but be prepared for a rustic experience. We recommend pairing your steak with onion rings or their loaded fries.

Italian Food Restaurants Cape Coral

There are almost as many Italian restaurants as seafood options here in The Cape. You will not be disappointed by the selection of pastas, pizzas, and desserts in the area. We don’t have a favorite Italian restaurant as there are many great choices, but we recommend trying pizza and calzones at Maria’s, pasta at Moretti’s, and wine pairing at Ariani’s. Buon Appetito!

Restaurants Cape Coral with Live Entertainment

Boat House Cape Coral Live Entertainment

Live entertainment is a big perk of Florida. You may see performers of all different kinds but primarily singers and bands. In fact, most restaurants post their entertainment schedule online so you can plan when to visit accordingly. Calling ahead is always an option, too. Enjoy a free show with your meal!
