Do you know how you can tell when a friendship is developing – when someone is willing to drive clear across the state to have lunch with you. So it was with Meakin and Sam (My CarolinaKitchen) who drove from Ft. Myers across the Florida to Jupiter for lunch with us at the
They had lived in the area at one point and knew the places to go so we were more than willing just to be where they told us to be. The Food Shack is located in a strip mall and would be very easy to ignore from the outside.
This is the still closed bar area and the dining room.
The main dining area.
The place has a regular and daily specials menus each of which has too many choices and while Meakin and Sam had their usual’s, it was more difficult for us and I went with the suggestion of the hostess. Some of us started with a delicious conch chowder but I only got shots of three meals:
Meakin's Panko Fried Oysters over greens,spicy fruit, and gorganzola.
Bev's Plate of the Day - Blackened Red Snapper. Beer battered gulf shrimp. Creole rice w/ andouille sausage, celery, poblano pepper, onion, and Cajun spices and sweet potato veggie dijon slaw.
My Sweet Potato Crusted Red Snapper on a bed of greens, green beans, mango, tomato, onion & garlic lime dressing.
Pat had the Blackened Fish Taco with mango, avocado, cheddar cheese, and Mexican street corn salsa and Sam had the Fried Tuna Basil Roll w/ wasabi dipping sauce.
Another fine time with the Hoffer's
I thought my meal was very good and I would definitely go to the Food Shack again. Thanks Sam and Meakin for the restaurant selection and for making the drive to meet up with us.
After lunch, we drove up the coast, past some fine homes, to Stuart before heading home along a road (County 714) with tunnels of trees. Photo by Dave Ward.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
