Bayside View for beer and Conch salad! We went twice because it was soooo delicious. Tyrone and his wife were amazing and made our visit special. We bought stone crabs next door and had a feast! Tarpum Bay was gem!

We drove through a few times and decided to stop on our last pass to really take in the view. Found a small Bayside Cafe serving fresh conch salad and fritters. So good!
