Before our planned visit in Jan, I enquired of the website for info on this area and only a little was available. Chucks was mentioned and disputed. My experience has revealed it to be a superior place for good fresh and well prepared seafood. The shrimp are excellent and fresh grouper, dolphin and other fresh caught fish are offered almost any way you request. Service is adequate and it can get noisy but I eat out for good food and that it has in abundance.
Theo Thudpuckers at the inlet in Ft Pierce is also worth a look. Chowders and fritters are standouts and worth a taste test. Pearl's Bistro in a so called downtown business district in Vero Beach is excellent. Not only is the food good, the selection is varied and carrys a spicy zing that I enjoy of late. A few miles north in Sebastian a fusion restaurant called Red Garlic is special - have yet to go again this year but will try for sure before Saturday's start home to the frigid north/
