The chefs at Al’s Top Shelf, which was voted Best Restaurant View in Lake County by Orlando Sentinel, whip up a menu of upscale steak and seafood. As eyes feast on breathtaking views of Lake Dora, incisors nosh on an 8-ounce filet mignon ($27) or the 20-ounce porterhouse ($30) blanketed in your choice of fixings including béarnaise sauce, blue-cheese crumbles, spinach, or goat cheese ($3 each). The stuffed flounder, which is packed with shrimp and crab, lazily backstrokes in a light lemon-cream sauce ($17). On Friday nights, live jazz music hypnotizes tightly clenched jaw muscles with a swell of soothing rhythms, tricking maws into opening wide for a relaxation elixir such as the Blue Razz-Berry Bliss martini, Bonterra cabernet sauvignon ($10/glass), or a pint of cough syrup.
Dockside Barbecue's menu is populated with traditional barbecue fare. Teeth can trap feral pulled pork between two slices of texas toast ($6.50), and the brisket dinner plate pairs the prized protein with coleslaw and baked beans ($8.50). For dessert, sweet teeth can check off two boxes on the food pyramid with an order of baked apples and vanilla ice cream ($4).
