  • Best sandwich you will ever eat. Ever.

    If you don't know about this place, you'll drive by and never eat here. No atmosphere, below average service, limited menu (one item), no dining area, and questionable hygiene. Best damn sandwich you'll ever eat. I now live nine hours away, and consider making the drive every weekend. I've never been hooked on crack, but I know that Marian's is...

  • Marina View

    Here's the other dish we tried. Spaghetti with Shrimp, mushrooms, and a Cajun cream sauce. Delicious. Large enough for a take home box.

  • Overlooking the Marina

    This can be and is a lively place. Lunch can be a quite affair and dinners can get lively when the entertainmemt starts.It has a bar area with stools and tables, a beautiful dining area (can get very loud with the hardwood floors) a porch area for dining, and a outdoor bar and entertainment. We were there a few days ago and tried just two of the...

  • Fresh Seafood

    It's a family owned and supplied fast lunch type of restaurant. Place your order and sit with the regulars at the picnic tables. Very friendly, sodas and water, no booze. Everything is either fried or broiled, but the fried grouper sandwich is well worth the price.

  • Don't miss the Seafood Buffet

    A large restaurant with a limited menu but with a superb salad bar and buffet. Fridays they have their usual Seafood buffet that is great. Crab legs, mussels, etc. etc. The Seafood buffet is around seventeen dollars but the regular buffet with roast beef, ham, etc. is more reasonably priced. Some area buffets will run twice this amount. I usually...

  • Typical Irish Food and Drink

    A typical Irish Pub that is fairly new in town. It has the standard Irish Stew, Bangers and Mash, Shepherds Pie, etc. etc. They carry a fairly good selection of beers both on draft and in the bottle. Service is very good. The Big Dog. This is a big Irish sausage dog that is served with plenty of onions and peppers. Much better than the Fish and...

Ruskin Local Customs

  • Feeding the Cows

    Green tomatoes that were picked but not used for one reason or another and now will feed the cows, not humans.

    more
  • TOMATOES

    A typical sight when there is a over supply of tomatoes. These have been gased and will be plowed back into the ground. It's seems its just to costly to pick them. The state of Florida use to fund a farm surplus for food to the poor, ($400,000.) but dropped it this year. It supplied millions of dollars worth of food to the needy.

Ruskin Off The Beaten Path

    Drive-In

    by doolemma Written May 9, 2003

    Going North on US route 41 you will come to this dieing attraction. It's still going strong but I believe there are only a dozen so so still in operation in the state of Florida. It opens around seven pm and has fairly up to date movies.

    Fresh Vegtables

    by doolemma Written May 12, 2004

    Favorite thing: It's a small festival but it's growing each year. Last year (2003) they had an antique car display. This year (2004) they had a farm tractor and machinery display. Most of the displays were of tomatoes, vegtables, and plants. Homemade bread, tomatoe sandwichs, and green tomatoe pies were also featured.

    Fondest memory: The really fresh vegtables offered at the roadside stands.
