Latitudes Restaurant and Tiki Bar

Latitudes Restaurant and Tiki Bar

Whenever we go to Hollywood Beach in Florida we stay at the Marriott right on the beach. It’s a very nice hotel but the best part about it is its restaurant – Latitudes Restaurant and Tiki Bar. There’s an enclosed restaurant and bar in case of bad weather but most people usually eat and drink outside. They’re open for an early breakfast and until late at night. The waiters and bartenders are top-notch and we’ve never had a bad meal there.

I’m from New York and know good pizza so I can say they have an excellent pizzaola at Latitudes.

There’s a daily buffet breakfast with something for everyone – even Froot Loops.

They’ve got these sugar-junkie birds there called Grackels. They take sugar packets from the outdoor tables – not Sweet ‘N Low or Splenda, just pure sugar.

. . . and live entertainment on weekends.

One of my favorite lunches – a burger and a beer.

If you’re traveling between Miami and Fort Lauderdale and want to stop in the Hollywood/Dania Beach area for something to eat, try Jimbo’s Sandbar.

It’s on the Intercoastal and has great food. They call it “redneck cuisine” but don’t let that throw you. They’ve got a chef who really understands Southern seafood. And if you’re there for dinner, terrific sunsets too.

We just spent a lazy week and a half at the Marriot on Hollywood Beach. The hotel is on the beach, only separated by the Broadwalk, a 2.5 mile long, 30 foot wide pavement open only to pedestrians and bikes. I say lazy because except for a lunch in Little Havana and a dinner in South Beach we never left Hollywood. We spent most of our time on the beach and were able to walk to plenty of very good restaurants, either right on the Broadwalk or the Intercoastal.
