Scarlett O’Hare’s Bar and Restaurant in St. Augustine Serves Up a Historic Dining Experience

November 12th, 2007

St. Augustine Historic District

By Kirby Collins

St. Augustine, FL – We recently traveled to St. Augustine to gather new content for PlacesAroundFlorida.com and took pictures galore. After an afternoon of wandering through the St. Augustine Historic District surrounded by many fine restaurants, we were starving.

We decided to try Scarlett O’Hare’s Bar and Restaurant. It was a great choice and with a unique decor and menu. We shared a Slab of Ribs and Grilled Mahi Mahi Sandwich, both were very tasty. For dessert we split a Key Lime Pie, it too was delicious.

They have a full liquor bar and we enjoyed cocktails named “The Scarlett O’Hare” in their “Ghost Bar”, which is listed in the National Directory of Haunted Places and is said to be haunted by the man who built the house. Visit their website at www.scarlettoharas.net.


Mulligan’s Beach House; A Restaurant in Downtown Jensen Beach

August 26th, 2007

By Kirby Collins

Jensen Beach, FL – Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill is another great Florida restaurant located in Downtown Jensen Beach and across from the Intracoastal Waterway. Downtown Jensen is a great place to spend the day with shops, restaurants and night clubs just north of Stuart.

We shared the O’Mully Mahi Reuben sandwich and Fresh Catch Quesadilla again with Mahi Mahi. I ordered the Mahi Reuben without Thousand Island dressing as I have this thing about mayo and the like. They both were great and served with rice and french fries.

Mulligan’s Beach House has a full liquor bar and had a pretty good crowd the Saturday afternoon we visited. They feature live music on weekend nights and have plenty of seating.

Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill is located at 2019 Jensen Beach Boulevard in Jensen Beach, FL.


Il Bellagio at City Place; Great Brick Oven Pizza, Salads and Martinis

July 27th, 2007

By Kirby Collins

West Palm Beach, FL – While visiting CityPlace last weekend, it was obvious brick oven pizzas and martinis without gin or vodka are all the rage, so being hip and all we asked around and locals told us “Il Bellagio” was the place, and we were not disappointed.

Il Bellagio Italian staff was excellent, our waiter Carlos was friendly and explained the menu very well without the snobby facial expressions you might expect when you mispronounce an item. The atmosphere is perfect with both inside and outside dining options, we’d been walking around all morning and chose inside where the air-conditioning was a welcome comfort.

We shared the “Pizza Pesto” and a “Insalata Parmigiana” along with a “Tropical Martini”, afterward we had an Italian Coffee. Everything was terrific and the prices were very reasonable. Il Bellagio is one place I look forward to visiting again.

Il Bellagio is located at 600 S. Rosemary Ave. Ste. 170 in CityPlace.


A Good Dolphin Sandwich at Sebastian Beach Inn

July 17th, 2007

By Kirby Collins

Melbourne Beach, FL – Sebastian Beach Inn is popular for its beachside location, great food and it’s Sunday Reggae Party. We recently stopped in and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Atlantic from their huge Sea Side Deck.

The seas were flat and the beach was nearly deserted. As we waited for our food, we had a couple drinks and enjoyed a flock of about 40 white ibis hunting for mole crabs along the shore break.

Capt. Hiram’s Resort; Get a Taste of Islandsphere

July 9th, 2007


By Kirby Collins

Sebastian, FLCapt. Hiram’s Resort in Sebastian Florida is one of the coolest places in Florida. On the Indian River, it’s almost directly across from Sebastian Inlet. Hiram’s features an outside Sand Bar with a beach, live entertainment and a great view. There is also an inside dining area that you’d feel as comfortable wearing shorts and flip-flops as you would and suit and tie.

Their menu is diverse with the fare ranging from crab cakes to filet mignon. Recently, I had their dolphin sandwich, referred to as Maui Maui on the menu (we natives still call em dolphin) and it was terrific as usual.

When I was living in Sebastian I thought every little seacoast town had a similar restaurant and yet as I travel throughout Florida, I have yet to find a place like Hiram’s.

Capt. Hiram’s Resort also features a full service hotel, a deep-water marina and banquet facilities.
