If you can afford to drop a hundred bucks on dinner, head out to H.B.'s on the Gulf, the stunning beach-side eatery at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club.
They've revamped the menu for summer - and sent out a press release a mile long extolling the virtues of the $24 entrees. Don't get me wrong, the food, service and location are fantastic though!
Here's the press release:
HB’s on the Gulf, winner of the “Best Seafood” award at the Taste of Collier, has unveiled the “Summer Fare” menu. The menu is an addition to the regular menu, and is offered earlier in the evening. The restaurant will also offer a complimentary bottle of wine with the purchase of two dinner entrées from its regular menu throughout the summer. Located at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, HB’s on the Gulf is the city of Naples’ only beachfront restaurant.
Featuring summer-sized entrée portions of 5-6 ounces, Summer Fare is offered from 5 - 6:30 pm every evening. Offerings include Parmesan Chicken and Field Greens, Pesto Tuna Caesar, Ginger Salmon, Baked Gulf Grouper, Blackened Pork Tenderloin, and Land and Sea Duo (New York Strip and a petite Mahi Mahi Fillet). Entrées range in price from $16 - $24 and can be paired with a glass of Leaping Horse Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot for only $3 more.
“HB’s has had a very good year with wonderful comments on our new menu, our wine list, and our staff. We wanted to make beachfront dining more accessible, and the additional menu offers a great dining experience and great value,” said Jim Anderson, Food & Beverage Director for the resort.
