Rhett’s is a fantastic seafood place on Seminole. They know how to do shrimp and fried green tomatoes right. Just try their Endless Summer. They aren’t just good for seafood either. They’ve got a loaded dessert menu. It’ll be difficult to choose. You just might wanna visit a few more times, but start with the bananas foster.

5. Petit Pois Restaurant, The Downtown Mall
