Restaurants recommendations:
 
Embers Wood Grill (http://www.embersofflorida.com)
In my opinion- the best restaurant in town because of its excellent service, professional wait staff, quality of the wine list, and the delicious food.  I would tell you to tell them that I sent you (they are great friends and my art is around the restaurant), but you will get good service and food no matter what.  They are located about 5 minutes from the condo (just south of the corner of Archer Road and 34 Street).
 
Blue Gill Restaurant: http://bluegillqualityfoods.com
Great seafood and southern cooking!  Open for lunch and dinner- please check website for hours.
