The Black Pearl Restaurant

At the Black Pearl Restaurant, creating a one of a kind dining experience is our goal, every dish from the warm ciabatta bread to the homemade vanilla bean ice cream is made in house, and to order especially for you. We believe life is too short to eat bad food.

What a lovely place for fine dining! The food was quite flavorful; my guest and I enjoyed the succulent duck and rack of lamb, both of which were cooked to perfection. Service was very kind and attentive, although as the restaurant got busier, the service tended to drag a little bit since there were only 2 servers.

Food is a bit pricey and when you add in the cost of street parking, the meal for two can run to almost $150.

We went to Dunedin for a day last month and I always check tripadvisor for restaurant ratings when I visit some place new. Well, we were pleasantly surprised and loved our meal. We were seated immediately and our orders taken promptly, My husband loved his grouper sandwich and I had chicken on a croissant served with really fresh fruit. The food was great and the service was great. I totally agree with the high ratings that this place receives.

Dunedin Brewery

As the oldest microbrewery in Florida, we are committed to two great challenges: satisfying our thirst for a well-crafted brew and fulfilling the need to contribute to a strong, vibrant community. Dunedin Brewery is founded on values that make these goals a reality; like yourself, we value the integrity to stand for a cause, the stability gained from working hard, and the experience of connecting with good people—our dedicated staff of beer enthusiasts or our loyal guests. There are plenty of things to do in Florida- even plenty of things to do in Tampa Bay, but we strive to be more than just a place and more than just a beer; we strive to meet the challenge of creating an amazing city and an amazing craft brew. Slainte!

3.5 stars. Beer was good but husband wanted a flight and many he wanted were unavailable. He had wings and a salad, ordering small sizes of both. He received a large salad but was charged for the small one. I had the apricot peach beer and, as advertised, it was a crisp, refreshing fruity beer. Love that most beer is offered in 4 sizes ranging from 5 to the standard 16 ounces. I had the zucchini burrito, definitely a different combo. Not bad but the zucchini overpowered the other ingredients (if the chunks were not so large, it might have been better). We each had a second 5 ounce beer which was the perfect amount to finish our dinners. Very reasonably priced meal. Caution: very small parking lot (6 spaces) and no very close street parking. We did see a number of people arrive by golf cart.

Delco's Original Steaks and Hoagies

Reviewed By Murphyflyer - Keewatin

Stopped in enroute to the Blue Jays ticket office in Dunedin. Super busy little place with seating area inside, and a small patio seating area. Food was great and it is made to order. Quick and filling as portions are very generous, even the mini sandwiches are more than enough for most people. Sides are great too. It's "fast" food" but good homemade quality. Will stop in again when craving a proper Philly cheese steak.

This busy restaurant at the top of main street offers daily specials, happy hour and small plates, at a reasonable price! The full bar & beer taps are extensive and the special bloody mary bar is like a "make your own". They are accommodating for individual preferences & the large menu has something for everyone. The side dishes are generous & the food consistently good. Dogs are common on the patio while the TVs inside have the games on. See you again soon!

This used to be a great restaurant. I used to eat here multiple times each week, but now I never go because, literally, half the time it is great and half the time it is awful. I have been embarrassed to take friends there, and it's just not worth the risk.

The Dunedin Smokehouse

Reviewed By slipstatic77 - Mississauga, Canada

We ate here twice on trip to Dunedin. Good sized patio and the hostess did her best to accommodate our seating request and did so very quickly. The food was delicious and the beer cold. I had the smokehouse burger and the pulled pork sandwich (separate visits). Echo previous reviewers comments on the sauces....could have a little more body to them, but the flavours are good.

Sandpiper Cafe and Gifts

Reviewed By brendaflynn - Ormond Beach, Florida

I was working at an art show in June, and was looking for a breakfast place within walking distance. I found the Sandpiper, on 833 Douglas, quite by accident. A big banner advertising coffee is what located it for me. Great breakfast, great service, clean environment! Very personable, and we actually went back for take-out lunch the same day. Had I know it was there on Saturday, I would have eaten there BOTH days (weekend).

Benedict's Restaurant

Reviewed By Radiohutch - Safety Harbor, Florida

Recently, Lynn and I and a group of my photographer friends spent the early part of the morning photographing birds at nearby Honeymoon Island. Following our adventure we stopped at Benedicts for an early lunch. I had their Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad ($10.79) which was huge, creative and tasty. Lynn had a Philly Cheese Steak ($8.99) which she liked a lot. Nadine was our server. She was jovial and terrific. Benedict's was a nice local experience. We can't wait to return.

Casa Tina

Reviewed By Peter G - Chapel Hill, North Carolina

This restaurant has an interesting menu, great service and provides very generous servings. The inside decor is eclectic but, on a perfect March afternoon, the patio in front was a wonderful place to eat lunch. Could easily see making this a regular spot if we lived in the area.
