Hatts' is a great dive shop in Melbourne. I got my PADI underwater certification here and the instructor did a great job. The shop is staffed with knowledgable people who are always willing to help out.
Come here for a great steak and good service. The waiter was very attentive and the food was great. Make sure not to fill up on all the great bread, and to leave room for dessert!
A coworker and I took a client to E Do based on a recommendation. We had a great time and the food was very good. I had the filet and chicken and my friend the Samuri combo. Both of us left full and happy.
If you're looking for a good time, the Nantahala Outdoor Center is a great place to go. They have guided and unguided trips down the Nantahala in large rafts and smaller "duckies". Everyone is sure to have a good time.
While in Tallahassee for graduation, we went to Garnet & Gold so my wife could stock up on some FSU apparel. They had a great selection and the prices were good.
Holabird has the best prices and selection on running shoes. I haven't seen better pricing anywhere online. They also have a great selection of running apparel from all sorts of manufacturers. Its a great shop.
Mama Fu's has some great noodle bowls, including my personal favorite the Vietnamese Crunchy Noodles. The prices are great for what you get, and you won't leave hungry.
Black Bear Tavern has great burgers, and a good selection of them as well. Watch out for the double stack (1 pound) unless you want to visit the Cardiac center across the street. Good place to go if you're a Steeler or Longhorn fan also.
The Dinner A'Fare is awesome! The food is great and it is a lot of fun to prepare some of these great meals. The best part about it is that they will prepare the food for you if you are pregnant - which came in handy when my wife was pregnant with our daughter. I felt that was a nice touch to an already great place.
Square Bagel is a nice little diner with a good selection of tasty bagels. If we're eating in, I'll usually get one of their breakfast plates which are always good. If I'm just picking up, their bacon, egg and cheese bagels are great - and the prices are good too.
