    Whatever you choose to do here in Palmetto, it is a wonderful place to live. I could travel the world over and will always choose to come back here. There is not much to do in Palmetto itself but watch beautiful sunsets or go kayaking on Emerson Point or fishing in the Manatee River but the location and neighboring towns are plentiful in day and nightlife.

    Riverhouse Reef and Grill: Great seafood!

    by Gillybob Updated Aug 8, 2014

    I had just flown in to Tampa from Baltimore on my USA trip of October 2009 when Ann (TheTravelSlut) suggested driving out for lunch. Her and her lovely husband Charlie took me out to Palmetto to the lovely Riverside Reef and Grill.

    The views here are lovely, looking out to Manatee River through the marina and the breeze over the water brings welcome relief.

    Favorite Dish: I had their Fish and Chips (you can substitute for another side if you wish) which were divine.

    Service was excellent - there's even a little buggy (golf cart) to run you down the pier from the car park to the restaurant!

    Crab Trap 1: The Best Seafood!

    by Drewinfla Written May 2, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great local restaurant that has been around for a long
    time. They are a little pricey, $10 - $25 range but worth it. They
    also have an exotic menu featuring Alligator, Squid, Kangaroo,
    Ostrich and more. Check them out! (Not to be confused with
    the Crab Trap 2 ).

    Favorite Dish: Fried Oysters & Shrimp platter, and Coconut Shrimp dinner
    and they have great Clam Chowder
