Located at the Beaches Town Center, North Beach Fish Camp is another favorite among locals. Their menu consists of a variety of options such as seafood, salad, meat options. Since we were at the beach, we all went with seafood options. We started our meal with the gator tail appetizer. Now, we make this at home, and have for years, so it’s very rare that we will order it out since we are pretty darn good at it. However, all four of us agreed that we officially needed to step up our game, the gator tail at North Beach Fish Camp is tender, delicious and had the perfect amount of spice. Steve and I had the nightly special which was flounder served on a bed of sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts. The flounder literally melted in your mouth. Incredible. My son had the shrimp and grits and he said it was as good as Disney’s. Which is a huge compliment coming from him. My daughter had the cod and while the serving was huge, she managed to eat every single bite.
