While living in Naples, it is always amazing to see the change in “Season”. Season is basically the time between Thanksgiving and Easter that means that everyone seems to come to Naples to enjoy the beaches, food and tourist attractions throughout the Gulf Coast of Florida. So, the experience is different at many of these places inside and outside of season. It is important to check hours and check for reservations during Season, while you will almost never have a wait out of “season”.
Jane’s on 3rd
When you want to get a great lunch or brunch before or after seeing the sights near downtown Naples, like Naples Pier, or the Naples Zoo. Or if you want a dog friendly patio or just a “Big Girl Mimosa”, then Jane’s is the place for you. We brought a lot of friends down to Jane’s and they were never disappointed

There are multiple locations of this popular Naples sushi chain. I went to the North Naples location as it was very close to my house. The sushi was always great and I have heard others that swore by the various Thai curries.

Randy’s is definitely one of the restaurants that I noticed was the most seasonal. Don’t miss their Lobsta dip and their Key Lime Pie. They also have a very busy bar and some nice cocktails. The active fishmarket is nice if you just want to get some local, fresh caught seafood and cook it at home.

Greek Island Cafe
This was my favorite, just drop in and get food place. Very unassuming, but I miss their Greek salad with gyro meat and I would usually get some fries as well. Not sure if their website is down, but I will attach their Facebook page. They are closed on Sundays.
