Description: 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.

Friendly service and good food. Watch the birds. Pricey, but great view of the beach. What more could I say.

Kitchen a little slow, seagulls were annoying and nervy, and food was ok. Convenient setting overlooking the pool area, and nice people, though.

Good menu for a quick beach/pool side lunch while at the Tradewinds. Good staff and fast service. The food was favorable and portions good. Price was good.

No wait for holiday week evening dining on the deck. We enjoyed our crabcake & chicken fajitas dinners as the swans swam nearby. Quite relaxing at the Tradewinds resort.

We enjoyed sitting outside right on the beach. Service is very good with a friendly staff that we all enjoyed. Food is too pricey for the quality. Nice menu and would eat there again because of location.

Solid hotel restaurant. The food was good and priced OK for being a hotel restaurant. It has a great location, by the pool and beach.

When here, a must is the bartender Kevin Keefe's home made Bloody Mary, truly the best I have had, not to mention he is one hell of a nice guy. No wonder he has been here for 15 years

On those evenings we felt like eating dinner in the room, we would normally order "take out" from Flying Bridge, and the food was generally excellent. Turkey burgers (one of our faves) were great, as were the crispy and hot french fries. We also enjoyed the chicken fritters and key lime pie. Hamburgers were kind of average, as were the... More
