South Florida is always the warm escape for locals and vacationers alike and I cannot think of a better place to enjoy all the greatness we have than with our list of waterfront and water view restaurants. There are miles and miles of these waterfront and water view restaurants and bars to enjoy; so why not go out and explore and enjoy what our fair cities and towns have to offer in the way of balmy breezes, warm sunshine, sandy beaches and food and drink until your heart’s content.
This list is a long time coming. First we put together the Fort Lauderdale waterfront/waterview restaurant list and that was a snap. This Miami list was a bit more challenging because there are so many venues, in so many places and there’s so much water! Not wanting to leave anyone off the list made the research daunting, where at times we needed a drink just to get though the Miami River listings! So with the insider help of my in-the-know Miami blogger pal Sex and The Beach we were able to put this list together. But … and there’s always a but!
As always, when we put these types of lists together we must always state a qualifier of immunity: If there is a restaurant or two we’ve left off the list, please accept our apologizes in advance it was an oversight, so please drop us an email and we’ll gladly add your venue to the list. Enjoy the view!
