|Inside Packard's Steakhouse|
As you read in my last blog, we had a great stay at Innisbrook Golf Resort (www.innisbrookgolfresort.com) in Palm Harbor, Fla. I have to say, the resort’s impeccable service and excellent food is a big part of the reason why we had such an enjoyable time!
There are many places to eat around the extensive grounds, but the two main restaurants are Market Salamander Grille and Packard’s Steakhouse. Both eateries feature amazing food as well as excellent views of Innisbrook’s famous golf courses, including its Copperhead course.
Market Salamander Grille has a wide range of appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees to fit most budgets and tastes. We had the Oven Roasted Wild Salmon & Crab Roulade, and the Blackened Tuna. The tuna was cooked exactly as we asked and had such a wonderful, delicate flavor. The wild salmon was also cooked perfectly, and the flavors were amazing. Other specialties to try at this restaurant include: Lobster Mac & Cheese, Miso Glazed Salmon, and Black Thai Shrimp appetizer, which features a sweet and spicy Malaysian dipping sauce.

Packard’s Steakhouse is known for serving dry-aged premium steaks and lobster tails, but also has an extensive menu that includes unique desserts whipped up by the resort’s pastry chefs. The New England Lobster Roll served there is one of the best we have had. I also recommend the Kona Crusted Lollipop Lamb Chops, the lobster bisque, and any of the restaurant’s salads. Packard’s is currently running a special: Wine & Dine for $79, which includes dinner (salad, entrée, and dessert) for two plus a bottle of wine.
