NOTE: Due to COVID-19, all dine-in restaurant service in the state was suspended effective 3/20/2020. Restaurants will be allowed to open with reduced capacity following state and local guidelines beginning May 4, 2020. Most of the restaurants listed here ARE still open for take-out and/or delivery. We've called literally hundreds of small businesses over the past month and  launched a larger section to help restaurants and other small businesses get the word out of as to what capacity they have to serve residents and visitors: So please see our microsite #BestSideYourSide for breakouts of restaurants by take-out and/or delivery, interesting "feel good" content as well as ways YOU can support the industry and sport a limited edition retro Pure Florida t-shirt. These are great folks-- our friends and neighbors. They are some of the hardest hit financially during this crisis. In these times, call ahead to check on the status of the restaurant and/or place your order so we can all stay as safe as possible.

Here are quick links to restaurants offering take-out and/or delivery:
