Restaurants in Florida Keys
The restaurants in the Florida Keys are both diverse and delectable. One thing is for certain you won’t run out of options for freshly caught seafood: stone crab, Florida Lobster, conch and of course the seasonal catch of the day. (If you’re visiting the Islamorada part of the Keys, some restaurants will even cook what you caught that day!)
Fish House, with its seafood-themed décor, is one of the best restaurants in the Keys. Fish House, as its name suggests serves up some delightful fresh fish including black grouper, cobia, and conch. Their specialty is matecumbe a fish dish baked with olive oil, basil, capers and tomatoes. And of course when visiting this Florida Keys restaurant, try the key lime pie for desert.
