Our SIL decided to take us to someplace by boat to eat dinner. Unfortunately, the place he had in mind was too far away for us to eat and get back before dark, and he didn't want to be running around in the Keys after dark.
So we did a circuit of Boot Key Harbor and then he docked the boat and we went to the upper deck where the food is served. There was a figure of a woman at the bottom of the stairs which would wave when you pulled a string from upstairs This intriqued our grandson. After you get upstairs, you can look out over the Boot Key harbor bridge, and the entrance channel.
They have a bucket on the table with a roll of paper towels, and also a large mousetrap type clip to put the order into. The waitresses were quite prompt and the food arrived very quickly.
They have live music every night, but it is not intrusive or wasn't when we were there.
The second time we went, there wasn't any breeze and the no-seeums ate us alive. They supply repellent, and I went and sat under the fan. Bob hated it.
We went again a third time, and it was much better - we ate under cover instead of out on deck.
Favorite Dish: The food was quite plentiful - the two orders of fries (photo 4) were quite large. I got a quesidilla (photo 3). The children had chicken which they cut up into fingers for them. I also had a fried Key Lime pie for dessert (photo 5, but not a very good picture). This was quite a bit different than the one we had at Porkys because it was inside a roll of dough. My daughter had the fried shrimp basket and a beer. Our SIL also had a beer and a fish sandwich.
The bill for all six of us was a bit under $100.00
When we went back with just the two of us, Bob had a hamburger with a side order of fries (way too big for us to eat) and I had a taco salad. Their hamburgers are quite good and are one of the things that they are known for.
