In Key West you need to eat fish. ( At least this was true before the oil spill of 2010)
Here is another old original fish restaurant with a fine location in the heart of the Historic Seaport.
There are a few tables out on the small porch, over the water, with a view over the boardwalk and the fishing port.
While having a delicious crab cake salad, we saw big fish in the water below the porch, gathering for a snack. There is a fish snack dispenser close by. Amusing for tourists.
You'll find this traditional Key West establishment situated along the docks of Land's End Village. Decor: THOUSANDS of license plates adorn the walls. Floors are wood plank, tables are wooden picnic tables, windows are wide open and a breeze wafts through if you're lucky. The service is very wam, bam, thank you ma'am. Which is fine, as it's to be expected in such a low key, casual restaurant.
Order yourself a cold beer and then another and then another to keep cool and hydrated as you await your food.
Favorite Dish: Those I was with ordered tons of raw oysters and clams and such... they sucked them down, so they must have been good. I started with their crab meat gazpacho. Which WOULD have been good if it didn't have a hair in it. :-( This was very distressing for me. I sent it back of course and said no thanks to a replacement. Server was a bit bi-polar but she took care of the situation promptly. I then had a conch ceviche which was spicy, unique and good. No hair. THANK GOD. You can order things like conch fritters, fried fish and chips and such here.
I haven't been here, because Bob doesn't care for Raw Bars as a general rule, although he does like raw oysters. I understand that this building was once a shrimp packing building.
From the Raw Bar they have
Bucket of Steamers
Peel 'n Eat Shrimp
Beer Steamed Shrimp
Stone Crab Claws
Favorite Dish: Entrees include:
Fried Seafood Combo
Broiled Seafood Combo
Half Shell Surf & Turf (1/2 rack BBQ and skewer of shrimp)
Garlic Combo (Crab Shrimp, Clams and Mussels steamed in white wine and garlic butter)
It can get pretty busy in the evening as its seems to be popular. The oysters are huge , and it has a great atmosphere , right on the waterfront.
