Our Cape Haze location opened in November 1998, boasting panoramic views of the intra-coastal, the marina boat basin, marina pool and those beautiful sunsets dipping below the coastal shores of Don Pedro/Knight/Palm Islands. We are now independently owned. Most people come to Leverock’s to savor some of the freshest, most delicious seafood in Florida. But there’s more than just our fabulous dishes to feast on: our beautiful venue provides an authentic coastal dining experience. Anchored by a yacht and powerboat marina, diners can enjoy gourmet meals outside on the deck while enjoying the kind of spectacular sunsets only Florida can provide. Tempt your taste buds with a combination of fresh ingredients and classic recipes. Great fish, coupled with our experience and gracious staff will make you a regular all over again. Dining with us is just as good as it was when Johnny Leverock shucked his first oysters, over 50 years ago.
