The Manatee River area will be home to the newest location of tropical-themed casual restaurant Whiskey Joe’s! Next month, we’ll be able to add another new waterfront restaurant to our list of options. The restaurant will be the Florida chain’s fourth location, following eateries in Tampa, Port Richey and Miami. And it wouldn’t be a true Whiskey Joe’s without a beachfront view and laid-back atmosphere. The vibe is “Floribbean,” with plenty of raw options, grilled items, burgers and tacos, plus a cocktail menu stocked with brightly colored, beach-friendly drinks. The Ellenton restaurant will offer fire pits, a tiki bar and even a sandy beach. Whiskey Joe’s Bar & Grill will be located at 5315 19th St. E., Ellenton. Click here for more information.
