A block in from the beach, dockside on the Intracoastal, Coconuts sports a very local-South-Florida feel to it and a loyal local following to match. Choice of dining is indoors, out on a shaded deck, or right down dockside with a front-row seat to the passing boats, paddleboarders, and pelicans. Top choices include the lobster roll, fish tacos, coconut cheesecake, and the blue-crab “scoobies” appetizer, marinated in butter, garlic, and chili. And if you can make it here for Sunday brunch, you’ll find the likes of chocolate chip pancakes, a variety of tasty Benedicts, and a weekly changing French toast. The young, fresh-faced waitstaff, meanwhile, does its best to live up to the restaurant’s widely displayed tagline, “Be nice.” A lovely bunch of coconuts, indeed.
