First the bad...the place has no air conditioning, but has several ceiling fans. I was hoping to try the grouper sandwich, but it was $18.95. Couldn't see paying that for a fish sndwich. The burger I had was really good, and the staff was great!

Although I'm not a big fan the the property it's on. The flying bridge is a friendly good place to eat. Drinks are pricey like the the rest of tradewinds.

We enjoyed the food and the price was great. Sitting right next to the beach with misters to keep you cool was nice.

The staff is very courteous, attentive and friendly. There is inside and outside dining. We had lunch there 3 times. They have good sandwiches and a very good salad with fruit in it. There is a bar.

Not clean, very hot, dirty tables and was scared to eat there. Again, people in g-strings with wet bathing suits sitting in the chairs. Drunk parents with kids at the table. It was just gross. Will never be back to this resort. Beware.

Just had a quick bite to eat for lunch here. It sits at the edge of the hotel, pool, and beach. Great location. Servers were nice and courteous. Drinks were reasonably priced. Small little place, w/ a small menu, but convenient for a quick bite...More

Went here twice while staying at the Tradewinds. The first time I felt like the bartender was annoyed that he had to take my food order and that I didn't want alcohol. I ordered a skewer of shrimp and fries on the side. The shrimp...More

For our "check in day" meal we wound up at the flying bridge and enjoyed our food. We sat outside and a rain storm blew in. The staff helped us run inside to a dry spot. The beers were good. The seafood rolls were okay....More

The Flying Bridge is quintessential Florida dining. From its origins as an authentic cracker cottage - the simple architectural style of the state's first settlers - to the fresh grouper sandwiches of its kitchen, the restaurant serves up an experience that you can't find outside of the Sunshine State. In warm weather, the restaurant's open-air feel gives you fresh gulf breezes and spectacular views of the beach with our meandering waterway running right beneath you. The all-day menu features a wide range of appetizers, salads, burgers, chicken and fresh seafood sandwiches. In the evenings, The Flying Bridge's extensive menu expands to include even more items, including fresh salmon, grouper, shrimp and other heavier dinner selections that you can enjoy while you watch the sun set over the horizon.
