The Local Restaurants

Take Out Food

For a small island, this place has restaurants that match up with any big city that we've been to like Orlando or Miami. I like anyplace that knows how to stuff a pineapple with Good Food inside like crabmeat. Most of the restaurants will serve beautiful dishes and seafood with great spices. A Good Meal should be aromatic and smell just so flavorful. Make sure you take your fish catch and bring it to the restaurant as you can Bring Your Catch. If you fish here, why not eat your catch. Simply pick one of the local restaurants that will cook your catch. Sooner or later you're going to want some barbecue and this is a good place, Daddy Bones BBQ. Our hotel was just around the corner making this perfect for us For Lunch or dinner. Locals and conchs will find it right for pit smoked pork and beef platters. The best nachos in town are made at Amigos Nacho Bar. The spot for yummy Mexican dishes, with warm fresh chips with salsa. This is where we go whenever I am fighting that Mexican food fix. For a really fancy meal, like a date night, I would go to the Shor Grill, but it is not cheap. It is tough to pass up a chef prepared meals in Key West, the setting adds extra spice. The restaurant sits on the backside, by the water on the sunset side of the island. It is a winner.
