Eat Local | Simple Smart Sustainable

“Collect memories, not things.”
We’ve learned that it’s not what we have in life, but it’s who we have in our lives that matter. At Grills Seafood Deck & Tiki Bar we are working hard to create an enjoyable community atmosphere throughout November & December. So far this season we have received reservations for work parties, Christmas parties, family get-togethers, birthdays, retirement parties and a number of other special events. We love that our community is getting together to enjoy each other. Grills is honored to host these special events for you. We will do our best to make sure you are greeted with enthusiasm, served quickly and treated with care.

Enjoy Life

We have made some simple, smart and sustainable commitments to our community this year.
Locally sourced seafood
Whenever and wherever possible we use seafood from our local commercial fishermen.
Local produce
Our produce supplier is located 5 miles from our Melbourne Riverside location and 17 miles from our Port Canaveral location.
Hyper-local sourcing
The Lion Fish and a number of our other famous dishes are sourced from 10 to 25 miles miles offshore out of the Port Canaveral location.
Environmental sustainability
The Lion Fish is an invasive species and taking them off the reefs allows native species to thrive at healthy levels.
Sustainable seafood
We use wild caught and chemical free seafood’s. These items are prepared with a great deal of care to reduce waste.
Natural ingredients/minimally processed food
Our marinades, soups and sauces are made every morning from fresh ingredients, our meats are not frozen and artisan cuts are made in house. The Coconut rice is made with Organic Virgin Coconut oil (Eco-Sert SA, USDA Organic)
Healthful kids’ meals
The Kid Fish option is grilled fish with wild rice and steamed vegetables. Our FroYo contains live active cultures to aid in maintaining a healthy digestive system.
Exciting condiments/spices
From the exciting new Shrimp Cuban Sandwich & Fish Tacos to the seasonings we put on our French fries. We combine and create these exciting flavors in house from original “Grills” style recipes.

Grills Seafood Deck and Tiki Bar | Seafood Restaurant near Orlando Florida | Now serving Lion Fish

Grills Family Restaurants are excited about a new addition to the menu “Lion Fish”.

The Lion Fish is an invasive species to the Florida Space Coast reefs and estuaries, “These fish eat juvenile fish of every species and increase in numbers at and exponential rate” said Ned Tibbits a local fishing and diving enthusiast. “I am glad to see that Grills Restaurants have placed a bounty on these fish and we are seeing the impact on their numbers offshore.” said Ned. The waterfront restaurant is encouraging their guest to do their part for the environment, eat a Lion Fish and share photos on social media with the tag #LionTamer .

Lion Fish has been described as a white meat fish that doesn’t taste “fishy” and is downright exciting to eat. The flavor is amazing with a sweat Asian style glaze. Lion Fish can be added to your meal as an appetizer or ordered as dinner sized portion with sides.

The winter months will prove to be difficult for local divers to harvest the Lion Fish. The commercial divers go down to depths of 80 to 90 feet off Port Canaveral, Florida in search of the fish, as seas get rough this trips become extremely dangerous. Because of the difficulty in collecting these fish, Grills is reminding the locals and travelers to get here while supplies last.
