Since others have directed me to good meal choices in the Ft Pierce area I feel obliged to share an as yet unmentioned good choice for casual and tasty food near the inlet in Ft Pierce Beach - Theo Thudpuckers. The oyster stew is on my list for the next visit. It looked fantastic as I watched it being prepared for another while I was waiting. The conch fritters, the fried green tomatoes and the conch chowder are all high pluses. A guest of ours had just the plain hush puppies and was also very happy. In a few past visits I've also sampled the oysters on the half shell and they are second only to Chuck's IMHO. Multiple choices for beer if that is your fancy but lunch stears me to iced tea.
