At the site of the former Robby's Pancake House, it is named for a 348-square-nautical-mile fishing area 75 miles west of Tarpon Springs. Yes, the name reflects the culinary focus of the menu, which showcases a lot of seafood, much of it local. Grouper, snapper, cobia, but Florida's Middle Grounds may be metaphorical in other ways. Despite its distance from shore, it is a popular destination among anglers because of its topographical variation. In essence, it is prized for its diversity of fish. The same could be said of the restaurant, with preparations that hail from Italy, from the Caribbean, Japan and right here in Florida. It's literally all over the map, but the quality of the seafood remains high.
