Benedicts, beignets and blackened shrimp on the list of Sunday morning attractions at this downtown restaurant.
Chuck’s Fish gets rave reviews for its fresh Gulf fish and sushi at lunch and dinner, and now there’s Sunday brunch. The outdoor deck, perched above College Avenue, is an appealing spot to savor dishes like crab cake Benedict or breakfast burrito paired with a Bloody Mary.
The downtown restaurant offers about 10 items for brunch, and there’s often a special on fresh fish. Highlights also include the perfectly crisp fried chicken with Belgian waffles, blackened shrimp and grits, lox or avocado toast and caramel apple beignets.
Add a cup of coffee or one of four cocktail options: a Mimosa, Poinsettia (with cranberry juice and Cointreau), Bloody Mary or Frosé with rosé, vodka, elderflower and citrus.
Chuck’s gets fish from its seafood market at Harbor Docks in Destin, which has been open for 40 years. The restaurant also operates nonprofit food trucks called American Lunch that bring free meals to hard-hit communities.
If you haven’t been here, Chuck’s Fish renovated its space — previously Deck Pizza Pub, Southern Public House, Tucker Dukes and the longtime Po Boy’s Creole Cafe. You can also read more about Chuck’s at tallahasseetable.com/get-ready-to-be-hooked-on-chucks-fish-in-downtown-tallahassee/
