What do You Prefer Fishlips/Grills/Rusty??

Hi,
We are arriving two days early before our cruise and we want to watch the ships leave from port one day(I think Friday). Which restaurant would you suggest. We are a group of 8- 4 adults and 4 kids ( ages 7 & 4). What time do you need to arrive as well?
Thanks!!

We went to Fishlips the night before our July 11 embarkation and thought it was great! It wasn't crowded at all downstairs (since we were all adults we were given a choice), and I want to say we went around 6? Granted, it was a Wednesday night, but still during heavy summer season.

Only one ship was in port when we got to PC (after 4:30 as we drove from Key West), and it was only still there because it was waiting on two buses filled with Brazilian teenagers. (Yes, we know that as we encountered them at a service plaza and then saw the buses speeding to port, shortly after which the ship left.)

I believe there is only one ship that sails on Friday (RCCL Enchantment of the Seas) and it sails at 4:30. If you can go on Thursday there are 3 ships, including Dream.

You'll want to get there well before that if you want a table at the railing in any of these places. All 3 places are good, but I would rank them:

1. Rusty's - large deck, good food and a very reasonably priced happy hour menu
2. Fishlip's - Nice covered deck area, if it might rain I'd prefer this over Rusty's, also good food and happy hour menu.
3. Grill's - Smaller seating area by the water, nice inside, didn't think the food was as good as the Rusty's or Fishlip's.

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for!! Rusty's looked like a great menu. I appreciate your feedback.

Take in any of the restaurants there and you'll do fine.

Our personal favorite happens to be Grills.

Enjoy.

How do you find out what ships are sailing on specific days?

Go to http://ports.cruisett.com/schedule/U...averal_Florida and select the month/year to see which ship are sailing on a particular date.


We have eaten at Grills several times and enjoyed it.

A quick way to find out which ships are in PC, go to www.portcanaveralwebcam.com and look at the calendar. It's a link on that page.

I've been to Grills and Rustys and both are good, but I prefer Rustys. I will never eat a place called Fishlips.
