“The sports bar is exactly that. They have the largest juiciest chicken wings I've had in Miami. The special grilled is there specialty.

Granny Feelgoods Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (03/23/2006)
“If there is one restaurant to visit in Miami that offers great fresh cuisine cooked to order using only the finest ingredients without excess oils, then you need to visit Granny Feelgood's. Not only is this place going to stay in your mind, but you are going to want it near your house.”

Christys Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (11/22/2002)
“Christy's is one of the top restaurant in Coral Gables and that speaks volume because there are lots of nice restaurants in this small town. Their steaks are awesome and they make the Caesar salad right there in front of you. The only draw back is that you get what you pay for. :)”

Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar

 4 star(s)  (07/24/2002)
“Blondie's are a good dessert to have.”
