Rosie’s Bar & Grill

2449 N. Wilton Dr. 



A required stop for anyone visiting Wilton Manors, Rosie’s is an integral part of the town. It is, in fact, the quintessential Wilton Manors experience. The food is tasty, the drinks are strong, and the staff is pretty. They’ve been around since 2006 and they’ve got this thing down to a science. I think the restaurant’s website sums it up well, “A tropical oasis in the middle of the Island City offering amazing food and refreshing drinks and sassy fun. “ 

Ethos Bistro

2055 N. Wilton Dr. 



Perfectly prepared Mediterranean fare, a beautiful atmosphere (even the indoor dining spaces feel as if they are outside) and an attractive and attentive wait staff. The menu is mostly based on food from the island of Crete; light, mainly vegetarian and seafood based. Given that, it’s ironic the most popular dishes are the meat platters, which can include chicken, kefte, gyro and lamb chops. 

Bona Italian

2468 Wilton Dr. 



Bona is Wilton Manors’ kitchen table. It opened in 1979 as a single stall pizzeria and over the years expanded into a full-service Italian restaurant. Mark Byrd and Glen Weinzimer took over in December of 2016 and the quality of the fare and service improved considerably. The pair’s dedication to serving the local community, has made it a popular gathering spot. 

Union Kitchen & Bar

2309 N Dixie 



Wilton Manors’ fine dining experience, albeit in a casual setting. All aspects of the dining experience from service to food prep to atmosphere, unify to create something remarkable. There are few restaurants in the vicinity that can match the level of service and quality of food. Deeply committed to the community, it works extensively with local businesses and organizations. 

Tulio’s Tacos and Tequila Bar

2150 Wilton Dr. 



A vibrant Mexican bar and restaurant located in the heart of Wilton Manors, Tulio’s is the place to see and be seen. Sit on the patio and people watch or dine in the colorful and energetic dining room. The focus is on tacos, but there are plenty of other options, and of course, craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails, including a full page of variations on the Margarita!
