Fantastic food, literally fresh from the farm to the table? Every foodie's dream comes true at this farm restaurant.
5. Latitudes, Key West
Latitudes is not just a restaurant, it's an experience. It's located on an island near Key West, so you'll have to schedule your ferry ride along with your reservation. Schedule your meal so that you can watch the sunset with your toes in the sand while you dine.

8. BALEEN, Naples
Here you can dine on the patio surrounded by lush greenery or with your toes in the sand, while enjoying a modern take on Florida seafood.

10. High Tides @ Snack Shack, Flagler Beach
A top spot for locals to grab a bite surfside since 1947, the ocean view is only the beginning of this restaurant's appeal.
