Floridians are big sports fans. We have a lot of football teams to root for (and against). There are the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, University of Miami Hurricanes, FSU Seminoles, UF Gators - and those are just the big names! That may be the reason there are so many restaurants and bars to to to if you want to cheer on your team with friends.
The Blue Lagoon Saloon is always a fun place to go, whether there's a football game in progress or not. If you are there to see a game, you can watch it on one of the 16 television sets they have. There are more items on their appetizer menu than some restaurants have in total. Among other things, you can choose from grouper nuggets, fried chicken chunks (too spicy for me) with different sauces, broccoli cheese soup bites, smoked fish spread with crackers or gator tail (a Florida specialty). They also have some of the best chicken wings in town and lots of standard fare like potato skins, chips and salsa, nachos, fried cheese sticks. If you're with a group, you might want to order the sampler platter for a good variety.
If you want to order something more filling, the Blue Lagoon has sandwiches, burgers, shrimp, oysters and dinner platters to choose from. Many people think they have the best shrimp in town (even outdoing Red Lobster).
Of course, the taps are always flowing. They also serve bottled beer, wine and sodas.
