We have been to New England Moorings a few times now and each time have enjoyed excellent food and stimulating conversations with the owner, Al. Everything is fresh and plenty of it. We will be back often.

My wife and I had an early meal at New England Moorings. It was our first visit there and we were pleasantly surprised. We love funky, old school Florida decor, and even though the name implies New England, it had more of a Matlacha feel...More

Absolutely delicious. Food is basically to order. Owner AL greets you personally, talks about what you like or in the mood for...he then goes and "creates". He always prepares too much food. (Awesome ) My husband Andy and I love when AL chats about old...More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
