The extensive, eclectic offerings at Leftovers do a great job of highlighting fish and seafood. The mix-and-match menu includes a selection of various fish and crust options. One recent night, the 'special crust' was golden beet and coconut; unusual, yes, and intriguing, so I paired it with wahoo for a truly delicious dish. Each crust comes with a different mixture of greens, vegetables, and sauces, but our waiter quickly offered to swap the one matched with wahoo to another that sounded more appealing to me. The dish was superb. My friend also ordered from the daily menu, choosing shrimp and scallops in a garlic cream sauce over corkscrew paste. Another inspired creation.

At first glance, the menu at Leftovers might seem pretentious. Listing in detail the ingredients in each dish, it seems to suggest an elaborateness that high-quality seafood does not require. The food itself, however, while inventively prepared and appealingly presented, is just fine. No - more than fine; it's great.

We had room to give one dessert a try and found it good but not up to the rest of the meal. In fact, this was one area where the fussiness of the menu was borne out, since all desserts are apparently topped with a treatment of whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries, and berry sauce. We ordered a banana spring roll. The wonton wrapper was hard to cut with a fork, and the chipotle caramel sauce was overwhelmed by the berry sauce. Not bad - but not necessary.

Overall, a busy, dynamic dining room; helpful, capable service; creative, delicious meals - definitely a keeper.

We recently visited friends in Florida who recommended this restaurant, it definitely lived up to the recommendation.
The restaurant is relaxed with a diner / bar feel and gets very busy.
The fish menu is excellent and you choose your fish and then add a crust which is then served on a salad. The tuna springs rolls will mean that i will have to go back when we return to Florida!
Polite efficient serve with a smile.

We love this restaurant. This is a "spin-off" from Food Shack. The name of the restaurant "Leftovers" sounds a bit unappetizing. But it's really terrific. For those who have been to Food Shack- it's pretty much the same. However, during season (January - April), there is a bit less of a wait at Leftovers. It's only a couple of miles down the road- take Military south to University- it's on the northeast corner in a newer plaza. This restaurant not only has extremely fresh seafood, they have an impressive selection of beers. Tequesta Brewing Co. is a local brewery and Leftovers has a selection from them. It makes for a one of a kind dining experience. Service is always great. If you ever see their pumpkin risotto on the menu- jump to get it. It's a seasonal (Oct) entree but is sooooo fabulous. The fish is the reason to go though. The waiters and waitresses almost always have good info as to what fish to pick if you are unsure. The entrees are very large. One could share an appetizer and an entree and be very satisfied. It's an ok place for kids. The environment is restaurant-like, less like the almost bar-like atmosphere of Food Shack. They do have some "land lubber" choices for kids who do not like fish. But, it's not a pizza and french fries type of place.
