Shula’s serves a variety of seafood dishes as well, including 3 to 5 pound Maine lobsters.
If you’re really hungry, you may consider ordering the 48-Ounce Porterhouse. The restaurant is adorned with plenty of NFL memorabilia recognizing the only undefeated NFL team in history, the 1972 Miami Dolphins, and finishing the entire porterhouse will earn you a spot in Shula’s 48-Ounce Club, which has over 26,000 members as of this writing.
The second signature restaurant located at the resort is Todd English’s bluezoo, an exclusive seafood restaurant decorated with underwater-themed decor and featuring a variety of coastal cuisine for seafood lovers everywhere. Many of the dishes feature Chilean sea bass, tuna, swordfish, shellfish and salmon, but there are several pork and veal dishes for those who aren’t in the mood for seafood.
An extensive and award-winning wine list, as well as specialty cocktails, are available for adult guests as well as dessert wines, ports and chocolate and fruit creations to end your meal on a sweet note.
For a little fun poolside, purchase a beverage or snack from the Cabana Bar and Grill. This poolside bar and grill features light lunches, snacks and specialty beverages for lunch and dinner.

Soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, onion rings and tortilla chips are all available here, but their dessert menu really shines.
