We arrived at Tradewinds in the afternoon and enjoyed our first meal on fge resort at The Flying Bridge, service was excellent, food was good. They have a variety of drinks, wine and beer were reasonable. Frozen and mixed drinks were a little expensive, small plastic glass for $10.25.

Came for an early lunch and was greeted immediately by the very friendly bartender named Jesse. I am on a strange diet and he was super cool about modifying my lunch so I could enjoy it. Also made a perfect cocktail. I'll be back!

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.
