1200 W. Retta Esplanade, Suite D6, Punta Gorda. 637-1177;harpoonharrys.com
Overlooking the Peace River at Fisherman’s Village in Punta Gorda, this Waterside Watering Hole whispers “tourist trap” at first blush. Tourist? Sure. Trap? We discovered we were in for a surprise.
A $5 trip across the Boca Grande Swing Bridge and Causeway takes you to Miller’s Dockside at the Boca Grande Marina on Harbor Drive. Like its neighbor South Beach, this Waterside Watering Hole is actually located in Lee County due to some Old Florida-style gerrymandering.
