Bobby Coker, Orlando Sentinel
Where: 530 N. Palmetto Ave., a few blocks off First Street on the Sanford Riverwalk at the marina.
The lowdown: Formerly known as Wolfys on the River, the owners have revamped the building and now it's better than ever. The Key West-style bar and grill located on Lake Monroe and the St. Johns River offer spectacular sunsets. Enjoy old-style Florida cooking and live music.
The background: This place has had several incarnations over the years, none of which has quite lived up to the potential of the building. But it wins hands down in the location department.
