Along with the beautiful waterfront views available at the Inn at Camachee Harbor, there are wonderful restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive away.


Right next door to the Inn is the Kingfish Grill, established in June 2005. This restaurant is a casual seafood eatery with a cheerful dining room, dockside patio, and banquet space. It is a favorite place to eat by locals and visitors alike due to the great food and beverages, service, and beautiful marina and Intracoastal views. The menu offers a variety of items for all tastes - seafood, steaks, and poultry. From March to October, live entertainment from local musicians offers a delightful atmosphere for your dining experience.


Just across the parking lot from the Inn's front door is the delightful Odd Birds Cafe. This breakfast/lunch cafe is a great spot for a quick, delicious meal. Open 7 days a week from 8am until 3pm, Odd Birds Cafe serves a variety of breakfast and lunch items as well as desserts. It also has a menu of Latin-inspired lunch and breakfast items and a number of salad plates. In addition, they continue to offer the delicious and sinful desserts for which that location has been known, as well as the addition of a few Latin American treats.


Just a few steps further away is Vinny's Pizza, a local family-owned restaurant offering a wide variety of authentic Italian dishes - pizza, subs, calzones, salads, dinner meals, and desserts. This restaurant offers take-out, delivery, and dine-in options.
