I attended a conference that was held at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Conference facilities were beautiful and very effective. We were housed in the Players Club building at the Resort. Our balcony suite was beautiful with plenty of room for our six-member family. We were very impressed and totally enjoyed our stay there.
Coconut Bay Resort is an oasis. Our family enjoyed every second we stayed there while visiting the Keys. The rooms are very comfortable, not too modern. The resort is set back into lush vegetation. Imagine having bananas, coconuts, pomegranates, lemons, and hibiscus in your back yard. That was almost heaven for us. Situated right on the bay, it affords a peaceful respite of sand and sun.
My daughter wanted to surprise me for my birthday, so she took me to this Thai restaurant. We had a great time trying different dishes like Thai noodles with peanut sauce, creme brulee (!) and mint tea. The ambiance was exotic and we left with good memories and full bellies.
To me, Zaxby's is sort of an upscaled version of a fast-food restaurant. It's an order-and-carry-your-food-to-your-table restaurant so there are no servers (no tips). We enjoy the chicken choices and the huge salad.
A good buffet can't be beat...and Ryan's has a very good buffet (especially on steak nights). My in-laws really love the vast array of vegetable choices and we all just like to pig out once in a while. All the food is well-prepared and tastes good. We always have to finish off with a bowl of ice cream (and caramel cake for me!).
My husband and I go by Milo's every once in a while and really enjoy the unique burgers, fries, and tea. We like it all, but our children don't care so much for the sauce they put on the fries. Nor do they care for the taste of the burgers. Oh, well. That just means that the two of us get to go there alone every once in a while!
Our family has been to Lisa's Kitchen too many times to remember. We usually go on Sunday afternoon which is a bad time to be there because it is so crowded. Even so, we are always seated within about 20 minutes of arriving. At other times we are seated right away. The variety of food is large with an offering of both southern-style American food and typical Chinese food. The fresh food is very fresh and the bar is kept well-stocked. The servers are friendly and helpful.
I can't say I totally enjoyed my two experiences there, but if you must have surgery and you can do it on an outpatient basis, Medplex is the place to do it. The office staff, nurses, and technicians are all very professional but very friendly. They went out of their way to make me as comfortable as possible. They even honored my request to make my second stay a bit longer to get my "after anesthesia" bearings straight.
Though their business mostly provides plants for retail stores, Triple J Nursery makes beautiful plants and dish gardens available for individual sales. Jimmy and Sheila are wonderful people who invite you to browse through their inventory and pick up something for your home. I enjoy doing early spring business with them.
Melissa Hallmark has been doing our taxes for several years. She is up to the minute on income tax information and works to make sure we have the best record possible. Her work is professional. She is friendly and helpful.
