Florida is well-known for its fresh seafood. Located in Old Naples on 5th Avenue South, Sails Restaurant promises to give you a taste of the good life, with seafood flavors from France, Italy, and Greece. They offer three-course and four-course prix fixe menus, with enticing options like wood-grilled octopus, lobster ravioli, wagyu tenderloin, and so much more. The decor combines comfort and elegance with high-backed leather booths and classic, brushed-bronze light fixtures.
If you take a stroll north from 5th Avenue South to 4th Avenue, you’ll find another great option for seafood in Naples — Truluck’s. It’s one of only two chain restaurants on our list, as Truluck’s also has locations in Texas, Illinois, and California. They have been sustainably harvesting Florida Stone Crab claws since long before most other restaurants ever considered doing it. Old-school photographs hanging in the restaurant proudly display the history of safe and sustainable fishing in Florida. Make sure to grab something from the “Jewels of the Sea” menu section, like those fresh Florida Stone Crab claws or the South Australian Cold-Water Lobster Tail.
You’ll find the best contemporary and chic cuisine right on Florida’s Paradise Coast at The Bevy. No matter what you’re in the mood for, you can find the right bite to eat or drink to sip. Feeling adventurous? Try the Grilled Octopus Nduja. Nostalgic? Their Parmigiana has homemade pomodoro sauce. Need something refreshing? Don’t miss the fresh and delightful Watermelon Salad. The Bevy also has incredible signature cocktails to pair with every dish. Just because a place is modern, doesn’t mean it lacks sophistication. The Bevy is proof of that!
Let’s switch from seafood to steak. Chops City Grill of Naples promises the finest cuts of American, Japanese, and Australian wagyu steaks at the lowest prices. They also feature in-house dry-aged New York Strip, “Chicago Cut” Ribeye, a 24oz. Porterhouse, and more. And what would a steak be without the perfect wine?

Polished and elegant from top to bottom, The Grill at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples continues the hotel’s reputation for class and style. Beyond the atmosphere, the food is remarkable as well. Of course, you’ll find excellent choice cuts of steak. But, you also can’t go wrong with the grilled veal chop, braised lamb shoulder, or duck ravioli.
