"Reviews" and Tips for Top Pick Florida Cocoa Villiage Restaurants - Near & In the town of Cocoa Restaurant favorites.
Cocoa Village, Florida is home to one of our favorite restaurants for lunch in the Cocoa Beach Area. It is a perfect match for the historic buildings and quaint shops in Cocoa Village -- about 15 minutes west of Cocoa Beach on Hwy 520 across the Intercoastal Waterway. Cocoa Villiage is actually on the east edge of the town of Cocoa, FL next to the Indian River.
Murdock's Bistro and Char Bar Restaurant
600 Brevard Avenue - Cocoa Village, Florida 32922 - (321) 633-0600
-- offers great "homemade" food, a very interesting interior, and we have found - excellent service.
Much of the interior of the Restaurtant, as well as the large ornate front windows and bar front, were salvaged from the historic Brevard Hotel which used to be on the riverbank a few blocks to the east. Some very ornate wood carvings hang from the ceiling of Murdock's. (see picture at top)
Murdock's Bistro Restaurant is in the former Murdock's Grocery Store building, so they kept the Murdock part of the name for the Cocoa Village Restaurant. See more on the Murdock's name and History, as well as on the Historic Brevard Hotel furnishings near the top of the Cocoa Village Historic Buildings & Pictures page.
The sign above has a caricature of the two sisters who "run" Murdock's -- along with the assistance of their Mom who helps with all major "business decisions" they told my wife and I when we were there last. The three of them are at the end of the bar in the picture at the top of the page.
Frequent Blue Plate Specials, Live Music 6 nights a week + during Sunday Brunch, + Sat and Sun breakfast from 8 - 12. Murdock's Bistro is our favorite Cocoa Village restaurant. See the Murdock"s Bistro Web Site for more info and Pictures. Don't miss the fun menu pages - especially the "entrees" page. My wife's lunch favorite is the "Southern Fried Chicken Salad." Murdocks Bistro is a fun and friendly Cocoa Village Restaurant Top Pick.
