However, Palmetto has a lot to offer!
A great location in Palmetto is the Blu Mangrove Grill. The grill is located on the Manatee River, in front of the Riviera Dunes Marina.

We sat on the back porch and were able to listen to live music, while overlooking the marina. We are always suckers for calamari.
For dinner, Brian order the Jumbo Lump Blue Crab Cakes. They came with smoked Gouda cheese grits, truffle corn coulis, red pepper sabayon, and orange-jicama salad.
(If you aren't familiar, sabayon is similar to a custard made of lemons, egg yolks and sherry. Jimcama is a Mexican turnip.)

We were both very happy with our meals. The fish was cooked correctly. The drinks were very cold. This is definitely a spot we will return to!
