Seafood

The seafood at this secluded spot is super fresh, and it’s evident before you even peruse the menu. For starters, Caps is only accessible by boat, which is a pretty good indication that the kitchen takes their daily catch pretty seriously. It’s a backwoods -- err, island -- cottage, originally a rum-running eatery and gambling casino frequented by the likes of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Al Capone back in the day, and the photographs peppered throughout depict a more shadowy side of Floridian history. Locals and tourists in the know trek here for popular dishes like the bacon-wrapped scallops and Maryland-style crab cake, as well as the vibrant sunsets and relaxed ambience.
