Restaurants in Florida Keys

The restaurants in the Florida Keys are, without a doubt, as diverse as its oceanic wildlife. The main staple of many dishes in Florida Keys restaurants is fresh, flavorful seafood caught daily in the Keys’ clear waters. Whether travelers are equipped with a highly discerning palate or a growling stomach from a hard day of surfing, the local restaurants in the Florida Keys are sure to suit even the most voracious or trained appetites. Dishes at many sit-in restaurants offer conch, stone crab, Florida lobster, seasonal fish, and world-famous key lime pie.

Fish House is one of the best restaurants in the keys. It serves black grouper, cobia, and conch. The dining room is decorated with seafood-themed art and strings of lights, but seating is limited. No Name Pub is an excellent place for an evening of fun. It isn’t easy to locate, but travelers will enjoy it once they find it.
