Stopped in with the family and had the "pulled pork" dinner, an enchilada plate, drinks and flan for dessert. Enjoyed the meal and the service. I may have had better Mexican but this stuff was genuine, made fresh and very tasty. I'll go back for sure.

Dixie Cream Donuts has been in business a long time and they continue to produce THE BEST donuts. If you are there early enough, you can get them while they are warm and they simply melt in your mouth. The glazed are most popular but there are other flavors as well. My kids are now adults and when they are in town they have to get their "fix" of Dixie Cream. Totally worth the calories!

Forget big chain ice cream stores...stop at Joy's for a real taste of homemade icy joy. The flavors are both traditional and specialty blends. They are all fresh and delicious.
If in the area, do what the locals do....stop in for a treat.
Service is friendly. Prices are competitive.

This is THE place to eat within walking distance of the courthouse. The tuna sandwich was fresh and delicious and came with a side salad and pickle. But save some room for the desserts!! I ordered the chocolate mousse cheesecake and it was delicious! Highly recommended!!

The Original Tiki Bar & Restaurant was built in early 1990 at the Fort Pierce City Marina. The Tiki Bar, as it is affectionately known, soon became a favorite destination for those in search of great food and drinks, all served in a tropical setting.Situated on the banks of the Indian River, the Tiki Bar boasts open-air dining under an authentic Tiki thatched roof. In August of 1998, the Lloyd family acquired the Tiki Bar and continues to operate the restaurant to this day. Carrying on the tradition that started in 1990, the Tiki Bar continues to offer excellent tropical fare in an atmosphere that will make you feel as though you are in the islands. Come to the Tiki Bar whereby . . . We overlook nothing . . . But the beautiful Indian River.
We caught our fish on a charter, The Last Mango with Tris and Joey (BEST EVER!!!!) and the Tiki Bar right there at the port cooked our catch. We had friend, blackened, grilled and fish tacos!!! All so yummy!!!! Give it a try!!!

Ok, I messed up. Stopped here for LUNCH and didn’t order BREAKFAST. What was I thinking? Most of the reviews rant about the before 10 a.m. breakfast bargain. Arrived at 12:30 and ordered the soup of the day...seafood bisque. It was more like seafood miscue. Very large bowl with two tiny shrimp and a couple of pieces of some kind of fish. Under seasoned and under good. Speaking of fish, my wife had the crispy fish sandwich which turned out to be tasteless Alaskan pollock. No joke...frozen Alaskan fish served in a Florida eatery one block from the Atlantic Ocean. There outta be a law against such a travesty. Fries were lukewarm, slaw tasted like it was made yesterday, or from last week’s cabbage. Service was just ok...on the slow side, even though the place wasn’t very busy. I’ve driven by this place countless times, and now that I’ve tried it, I’ll keep driving by. Unless it happens to be before 10 and I’m hungry for breakfast.

Uncle Carlo's makes homemade authentic Gelato everyday. We also make Panini's, Wraps, and specialty salads. We also serve Latte's, Cappucino's, Chocolates and and much more. Open 7 days a week until 9pm during the week and 10pm on weekends. We also make a variety of Homemade Gelato cakes and pies. Please give a 48 hour notice on Gelato cakes. Ciao!!!
Uncle Carlos' is a neighborhood favorite and for good reason. The gelato flavors are fresh daily and they're always experimenting with new additions. The newest was basil olive oil , the sound of which was a nonstarter for me! But a taste sample could persuade most!
There are teas, coffees, homemade desserts and lunch items like salad plates as well.
The view from the porch is scenic (River lagoon) , the walk around town is interesting (art, sweet shops, restaurants, marina) .
Nightlife is nonexistent so come during daylight or twilight.

My husband and I brought our 22 y/o son here since we just got back from our second trip to Barcelona. We loved the tapas there and were looking forward to having a place close to home that served tapas. This establishment is small. This was a Wednesday night and it was crowded because a large party had taken most of the tables. We were forced to sit outside at an uncomfortable patio table & chairs. There was only one young man working the floor. He was nice but was running around a lot. We had drinks else where so we had water. He was so busy he never got to refill our glasses. We ordered a meat & cheese board, short rib tacos and beef tenderloin with Brussels sprouts. The meat/ cheese board changes daily by what’s available. The beef tenderloin and Brussel sprouts were very tasty. These tapas were expensive. Drinking water our bill was still $45. We thought the meat/ cheese board was skimpy. These tapas did not resemble any tapas we had in Barcelona so we will keep searching. I don’t think we’ll be back.

Seafood menu. Lunch, dinner. Closed holidays. Bar. Children's menu. Outdoor seating.
restaurant opens at 3PM and we were there. Got great seats (upstairs) next to the windows. Service was quick and first course (a wonderful bowl of clam chowder) came out promptly. My dinner was as good as any seafood eatery in Florida. Great building decor ... lots to look at on the walls! Loved it!
