Was lucky to get a table for 2 without a reservation on a Sat night. Small place offers indoor and outdoor seating. We choose indoor, since restaurant is located on a busy street corner. Food is all cooked fresh to order, locally sustained and delicious! My friend had the salmon and I the snapper special. Both were generous servings perfectly... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch with my husband. Really didn't know what kind of place it was, just that it smelled great driving by. I had a classic burger. My husband had the fish sandwich. It was absolutely delicious. The burger was juicy and fries were wonderful. Not your usual frozen refried fries. My husband's sandwich came with a... More

My husband and I went there for our anniversary and it was so good! It had an intimate atmosphere (reservations recommended) and the food was fabulous. I had the salmon and he had flat iron steak. It was amazing. I also enjoyed the homemade sangria and ceaser salad. The price per plate was low $20s so not bad for a... More

Just bought a house in Melbourne Beach and searching for places to eat nearby. My wife found this place and we decided we'd try it next time down here. Tried it today (11/12) celebrating our 30th anniversary and it was great. Great wine picks and very affordable. We had a 2011 Barolo for $50. Great buy and value. I had... More

Everything is great at the Nomad. From appetizers to desserts, all outstanding. The service is always excellent. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and portion size of the meals. I recommend the hummingbird cake for dessert if it's available!

This is such a popular restaurant, but based on my two experiances there, I'm not sure why. I had a bland pasta dish the first time, but the service was great, and the second time, I had a great steak sandwich, but it took over an hour to get out to me. Everyone around me that came in afterwards were... More

We went to this quaint restaurant for dinner. It was a Saturday night so a little busy but we made reservations which I would recommend if you have a larger party. The food was so yummy! My family loved their dinners. I had the NY strip steak and I tried the pork chop and Salmon. I would recommend all three... More
