The Pineda is a local watering hole and a great restaurant. Their food is excellent with the larger burgers I've ever seen. All food is fresh that day, all steaks are cut to order.
But their seafood chowder is my weakness, I have to have a cup each time. It's brimming with seafood and fresh veggies, a bit spicey but not anythign a cold beer can't handle.
This is where the Blues fest is held each year. It's gorgeous and rustic here, very old Florida. Right on the beautiful Indian River, you can watch the sunset right from the patio.
Take your picture by the Mermaid out front, no she's not real, but a good photo op.
