I first had the pleasure of meeting Chef Dave Gould over four years ago at Cobb’s Landing in Fort Pierce, and I was immediately impressed with his culinary talents. Recently, I had the opportunity to reconnect with him during my review of the Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House, where the food was nothing short of spectacular. Chef Dave has since taken the reins at Stringers and embarked on a significant menu revamp, with over 90% of the dishes receiving a makeover. In light of these exciting changes, I was invited back to sample some of the new dishes. To learn more about them, CLICK HERE to read our full review!

I’m planning to continue this blog post series and visit a few new areas of the Treasure Coast. I’m working my way from North to South unless you have any suggestions for me. I travel anywhere from Melbourne to West Palm Beach. I’ll be heading to the Palm Beach Gardens & West Palm Beach areas next, so send me your restaurant recommendations for that area!
