Street Meet is a unique concept restaurant where the worlds of street foods collide. Family atmosphere with a 1930's street corner and tavern theme, complete with cobblestone floors and brick walls, transports diners into the early years of last century. America's favorites are all on the menu with a unique twist, like Burger Skewers or Buffalo Pirogies. Also on the menu are timeless favorites like the Grilled Bratwurst with sauerkraut on a hoagie, for all you purists. Take-out is a specialty and be sure to ask for a family pack to go if you'd rather have a picnic than hang out on the "street corner."

If you want to check out a fine restaurant on the beautiful island, head to Ruan Thai Cuisine. It is the place to indulge in the scrumptious cuisines of Asia.

After a heavy meal, you can take a walk in the residential community of Shipyard plantations with a chance to shop around. But beware...there are crocodiles in the area close to the lagoons!
