Food in Key West


In Key West for a bachelor party? What are the hot spots over here? Keep on hearing about their key lime pie.

I have a friend that lives there. She eats conch fritters all the time. I had them at the Orlando airport at the little bar with a tropical atmosphere. They were good but I'm sure they are better in key west

Was there for three days last summer. I ate mostly fish. Did not have a bad meal there. Even Jimmy Buffett's had good bar food. The best meal that I had was at Mangia Mangia a family owned Italian place. There was also a very food breakfast cafe across the street from the harbor where the Grand Tortugas party fishing boat docks.

Best key lime pie I had was Roof Top Cafe. Kermit's was ok. Matheesen's was overpriced.

If you want a smoothie with your cuban coffee, go to Cuban Coffee Queen. Otherwise go to 5 Brothers Grocery.

Paseo was my favorite overall place. The Cafe was also good. Sarabeth's was ok but I had dinner there disregarding advice to stick to lunch or breakfast. I wish I had listened.

Mr Z's pizza is awesome.

Schooner Wharf $5 bloody Mary's 7-noon. Turtle Kraals has a good happy hour.

Sandy's has good fish tacos.

Better than Sex is a hokey dessert place but the desserts are really really good.

Blue Heaven has outrageous wait times so I missed out on that.

Caroline's on Duval is great for people watching and the prices aren't insane. Food is meh though.

Next time I want to try 915, Seven Fish, and/or Cafe Marquesa.

If on the list of specials a spiny lobster is the tits. Tell the staff to fry the damned thing without any additions to it other than splitting it into two halves.

I agree with the Seven Fish recommendations. Ran into a local guy during the day with an LSU tshirt on. He was originally from the Midwest, but went to LSU, and worked as a waiter there, who recommended the place. I had a fish curry dish there, and it was awesome.

We went to Louie's Backyard tonight on the southeast part of the island. Everything we had was great but it was a little pricey

Blond giraffe is the best key lime pie. For the record, I have tried them all multiple times. I kinda like key lime pie...a lot.

Better Than Sex is a legit dessert and bar spot but its definitely not a bro thing lol. More of a date thing.

Conch Shack on Duval. Get cracked conch with Bahamian pink sauce. Best on the island imo. Mr. Z's is also very good. Go to the Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island and get a blackened Hogfish sandwich. The White Tarpon at A&B Marina has good charcuterie and tapas stuff, get a key lime martini. The Rum Barrel is right down the street and has a good food/bar with an upstairs patio. Dante's/Schooner Wharf/The Oyster Co. are all good and right down the street from each other in the marina.
