While the summer months may drive some people away due to the balmy temperatures, others (especially those who love to dine out) stay around and await one of the many Florida Restaurant Weeks. These restaurant weeks take place at cities around the state and offer consumers a chance to enjoy their favorite restaurants – from mom and pop shops to fine dining establishments – at a discount. Many of these restaurants offer a 3-course prix-fixe lunch or dinner menu, while others offer deals that are more fitting for their establishments. Others offer special events during this time. Visit the individual restaurant weeks’ website for all of the details.

To participate in these deals, just go to the restaurant and ask for their restaurant week menu and order accordingly.  You can also order off the restaurant’s regular a la carte lunch or dinner menu. A coupon is not needed to take advantage of these deals. Reservations are highly recommended, as the restaurants do tend to fill up quickly.

Tip: Visit the restaurant week’s website in advance to see what each restaurant is offering and for the days and meals that it will be available.
