At Eden Condominiums, we know how to enjoy the "brinier" things in life. As summer fades and crowds thin, we roll out the table cloths and turn up our sleeves to enjoy all the Gulf of Mexico has to offer — from fresh-caught seafood to home-grown brews. 

If you’re lucky enough to be our guest during this special time of year, you can pull up a chair and join the feast. Need more enticing? Here’s our rundown of the five tastiest reasons to gas up the car and head to Eden Condominiums this fall:
