The scenic view of Lake Eustis will be expansive and enviable. Lake Eustis Waterfront Grill is currently under construction at the shore of Eustis Marina. The restaurant is being constructed in a “Florida-Fish-Lodge style” and will serve traditional American fare and seafood in its indoor and outdoor dining options that will seat 150 people.
In October, the developers will choose a restaurant operator from among the five that expressed interest in the project. Lake Eustis Waterfront Grill is expected to open in the spring of 2021 at the three-and-a-half-acre site less than a mile from the city’s downtown core.
The restaurant isn’t all that’s new at the marina, one of the best kept secrets of the Golden Triangle. The 50-slip marina was purchased in 2018 and has since undergone major upgrades to the docks and boat slips. The site plan for the project was approved by the Eustis City Commission approximately two years ago, according to one of the project’s partners, Daniel DiVenanzo.
Improvements are continuing at the marina which has approximately 1000 feet of waterfront on Lake Eustis and the canal. All of the boat slips have been rented except five, as well as a handful of covered, dry storage spaces that are currently available. The new owners also added 24-hour manned security at the marina, as well as security cameras to the marina on Lake Eustis’ south shore.
The marina is located at 350 Lakeshore Drive in Eustis.
