This is my favorite restaurant of all times. The staff are super friendly and the food beyond delicious. The lack portion control so you always get a to go box. Their wine and beer selection rivals any establishment. They are open Tuesday to Saturday. You will definitely need a reservation on the weekend and lots of times during the week.

You know you are in for not just a wonderful meal but a warm welcoming experience when you open the door to Tradewinds - and get a huge from the owner, warm smiles from the staff and smell the delicious food. My favorite is Grouper My Way - which I always enjoy and my husband loves the mussels. The crab... More

Tradewinds never disappoints! My husband and I started with the massive bruschetta. It never ended. I ate the rest later at home. We had the bistecca special. Eight ounce seared beef tenderloin in a honey balsamic reduction, accompanied with mushroom lasagna and three shrimp cooked perfectly and served scampi style. We also had one of our favorites, "Tom's Pasta". It... More

Holy cow! We recently moved to the area and haven't really had the chance to explore some of the local fare. On the recommendation of some locals I decided to give Tradewinds a try for a date night with my wife. We were not disappointed. You will have to make a reservation. I called at 5pm on a Thursday and... More

We had a group of about 12 the other night, all from out of town, looking for a nice place to eat locally. Very chill atmosphere, enjoyed our time here. Food was good. The muscles appetizer was AMAZING!

We went to Tradewinds to celebrate 20 years of great food and friendships to our community. What an amazing gift to us. We had pizza, because that's what you get with a teenager! 😍 Thank you to the "hostess with the great smile" Waylynne! Melody did a great job explaining the meal options. The pizza was fantastic and the atmosphere... More

This out of site, small restaurant has very good Italian meals. The meatballs or mussels are outstanding! The later can be in red, white or mixed sauce. The pasta is homemade and cooked just right. The place is small and you may need to share a large table, but this adds to the family Italian style environment. Will definitely be... More

Located in an unassuming little house, what's inside packs a big punch. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by the super-friendly staff and were made to feel at home. My husband and daughter both ordered the alfredos and they couldn't believe the size of the servings. Huge! I ordered the cheese and spinach ravioli (which was absolutely... More

As close as Italy you can get! Check out their wine list! Best! Delicious Food! The best in Florida. Fresh seafood, unlike the junk you get at the tourist traps on the beach. Sit at the bar and watch them cook. Their pizza is just like what you find in Italy. Terri makes you feel like family. 💕

Due to heavy travel and mostly eating in when at home I hadn't been to Tradewinds in a bit. Tradewinds has always been fantastic but I must say, as challenging as it is to improve a good thing, I think they have done it. Tradewinds is better than ever and I love to see the same folks as always both... More
