  • Keepers Restaurant
    Chefs fuel hungry fisher-folk as they cast lines from picturesque Keepers Pier, serving them a menu of burgers and drinks. Beefy bounties commence with two juicy Jalitos, thinly sliced jalape?o peppers that receive generous coats of breading and dips into the deep frier. Cool down jalape?o-warmed mouths with a soft drink of your choice or by installing miniature fans on your uvula, before biting into a thick Beach burger. After the meal, diners can pick up their fishing pole and hit up some of the U.S. Gulf Coast?s most productive fishing piers. Baited lines can lure texas red fish, scrumptious speckled trout, and whopping black-drum fish, which can grow up to 78 pounds. Big-game sharks prowl the waters, as do feisty cobia fish, whose delicate white meat obtains its color after chilling, late-night readings of Moby Dick.
