The next best thing to eating under the sea is eating creatures from the sea while sitting next to the sea. Succeed in achieving this fantasy of extraordinary culinary proportions with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of seaside eats and drinks at Jimmy Guana's in Indian Rocks Beach. Located roughly 300 physical miles from Key West, Jimmy's takes its atmospheric and barometric cues from the famed island. The atmosphere is laid-back on the surface, but in the watery depths lies a full menu and professional staff who will ensure that your vicarious tropical escape goes off without a hitch.
The restaurant has outdoor, indoor, and barfly seating and features live music every night. In line with the relaxing décor of the restaurant, you can expect to be whisked away to a beach by the soothing sounds of island jams and coconut-shell horse clopping. Jimmy's seaside location makes it a great place to end the day with a crew of friends awash in a sea of entertainment. Catch the sunset while sipping a tequila sunrise or one of the Jimmy Guana's other specialty tropical drinks. One of its most popular is Da Big Bamboo, which is a 24-ounce light-rum and topical-fruit-juice concoction rimmed with sugar and served with a sugar-cane swizzle stick. No promises, but we won't say it won't not give you superpowers.
For comestibles that won't cause you to spontaneously break into song or profess your love to harp-playing carp, look no further than Jimmy's wondrous food menu. Start up the ship with some house-specialty Margaritaville shrimp ($8.95) or crowd-pleasing Key Largo grouper nuggets ($7.95). Get carbohydrated with some tasty pasta plates, such as lobster ravioli ($15.95) or rajun Cajun pasta (shrimp, crawfish, sausage, and penne pasta, $16.95). Fire up the grill with snapper parmesan ($18.95), or equip hungry hands with a parrot-head burger (half pound with lettuce and tomato, $6.95). There are vegetarian selections as well, like the veggie quesadilla, fruit plate, and vegetable stir-fry.
- …we love this place! It is cool and breezy on the warmest evening, with the big canopy by the stage. We go mostly for the music, which is great…We also like the quesadillas and the Bonsai Shrimp, it has a spicy peanut sauce. The service is good inside the restaurant, or outside on the deck, and all the staff are friendly and efficient…The entertainment is geared for families, and you'll often see small children shaking rattles or little tambourines along with the band. Sometimes later in the evening, the adults will dance a little. It's always a good time, and we go back there as often as possible. – Susan, Yahoo! Local
